Bacon and Egg Breakfast Muffin Cups

My family always looks forward to weekend breakfast.  
Who doesn't love eggs and bacon?  
A favorite in our house is my 
Bacon and Egg Breakfast Muffin Cups.

1 slice of bread per muffin cup
1 slice of bacon per muffin cup
1 egg per muffin cup
1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese per muffin cup (optional)
Spinach (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Use a large glass to cut circles out of each piece of bread.
Grease a muffin tin and press circles of bread in the muffin cups. 
I add raw spinach leaves to mine & husbands. Spinach is optional.
Cook bacon in a skillet until halfway cooked (approximately 3-4 minutes).
Wrap 1 slice of bacon into the muffin...onto of the bread.
Crack an egg into each muffin cup (on top of the bacon).
Add salt & pepper to taste.
Sprinkle cheddar cheese over each egg.
Place in the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set. 
NOTE: if you like your eggs runny, you will need only to cook for 15 to 17 mins. 
NOTE:  you can make this entire recipe the night before and place in refrigerator.  
Come morning...pop in your oven!

I use a large cup to cut out my bread circles.

Place the cut out bread circles in to greased muffin tray.

Time to add the optional spinach.

Time to add the partially cooked bacon.

Added the raw egg, salt, pepper and cheese....ready for the oven.

Your family will LOVE these!  Delicious!!!
