Bacon & Egg Cups with Lemon

Carole's Chatter: Bacon & Egg Cups with Lemon


Bacon & Egg Cups with Lemon came about as a merger of two different ideas  - the first Lemon Fried Eggs  by Fresh Eggs Daily and the second Easy Bacon & Egg Cups by Frugal Foodie Mama.  Thanks, guys!

Ingredients:

½ a lemon sliced
4 eggs
4 tablespoons of cream
4 rashers of bacon (enough to line 4 muffin holes in a muffin tin)
Pepper
Olive oil (I used extra virgin)
Finely grated parmesan cheese
Basil for garnish (or whatever greenery you have)


Method:

Pre heat oven
Fry your bacon in the olive oil along side your 4 lemon slices – don't let it go crispy or hard – a little undercooked is perfect.
Oil your muffin tin (it will still stick some though)
Put a slice of lemon in the bottom of each muffin space (use a large muffin tin)
Then curl the bacon around each muffin space
Mix together your eggs, cream and pepper
Pour into the muffin tin
Top with a little grated parmesan and drizzle over your remaining oil from frying the bacon
Bake in a low oven for 30 to 40 minutes until the eggs are set
Garnish with basil

This was tasty – but next time I might use a different flavour from lemon which I found a bit sharp – maybe mustard oil?

  1. This sounds like an amazing breakfast! I love the idea of adding a little bit of acidic lemon to the rich egg and bacon.

  3. Sounds like a bit too much time & work for breakfast, but I bet it would be a good lunch.

  6. That's not too much trouble for me Carole, I think these muffin cups would be popular at our home.

  7. Never thought of mixing lemon with egg, or cooking lemon slices, for that matter! Sounds good!

  8. I might do a breakfast like this for Sudays, which we take a bit of time for it, though leave out the lemon as you suggested. Maybe just a few bits of preserved lemon.
