Makes 8 breakfast cups

Weekend breakfasts are always an occasion at Roxanne’s house, and she often makes these breakfast cups as a fun alternative to the traditional bacon-and-egg breakfast.

Tips

This recipe works best with fresh bread that can be rolled very thin.

If you prefer, you can use 3 tbsp (45 mL) finely chopped back bacon (Canadian bacon) in place of the regular bacon.

8      slices sandwich bread      8

2 tsp      unsalted butter, softened      10 mL

3      large eggs      3

2      slices bacon, cooked crisp and      2
      crumbled

      Salt and freshly ground black pepper

8 tsp      shredded Cheddar cheese      40 mL

1.   Using a rolling pin, roll each slice of bread until it is very thin. Use the large circle of the crust cutting tool to cut a circle from each slice (discard scraps or reserve for another use). Spread one side of each circle with butter.

2.   Place 1 bread circle, buttered side down, on top of each well and gently press into well with the pie forming tool, making a cup. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly toasted.

3.   In a small bowl, whisk together eggs and bacon. Season with salt and pepper. Spoon about 112 tbsp (22 mL) egg mixture into each bread cup.

4.   Bake for 6 to 8 minutes or until egg mixture is set. Transfer breakfast cups to a serving plate and immediately sprinkle with cheese. Let stand for 2 to 3 minutes. Serve warm.
