Bacon Egg Cups

Makes 12 cups

12 slices bacon
8 eggs
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Whip the eggs, salt, pepper and cheese with a fork. Spray non stick spray in 12 muffin tins. Wrap each piece of bacon inside the sides of each muffin cup.

 Fill each bacon lined muffin cup 3/4 of the way with the egg mixture.

Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the egg cups are golden brown and don’t jiggle. Use a knife to scoop them out of the tins. Serve immediately.

Each cup is about 100 calories. So you can eat a few of them for breakfast and not feel guilty about eating TOO much junk, but you still get some tasty bacon!
Update *May 2012*:
It seems like a lot of people have had great success making these, but have partially pre-cooked the bacon. I haven’t tried it that way yet, but it seems like it works well.
Thanks for all of your input on your results with the bacon and egg cups!
