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!


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


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.

  2. I'm pinning this to make later. It sounds really good!

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

  4. Looks like a tasty breakfast! ;-)

  5. What a great idea! Maybe add a little cheese?

  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.

  9. Love this ! Perfect for a weekend brunch !

  10. I have made something similar before but the addition of lemon sounds great. Will have to try this

  11. Carole, this sounds tasty AND fancy-schmancy. Great for a company breakfast.
