Easy breakfast recipes are the best and it couldn't get any easier than these cute little Canadian Bacon Egg Cups. Mornings are usually harried for most everyone darting to get to their destination on time. That's one of the reasons I started baking eggs in the oven.

Breakfast is served in a snap, It's as simple as that.
Canadian Bacon Egg Cups Tips
You can bake these Canadian bacon egg cups to your desired firmness so adjust the 15-20 minutes range cooking time to your preference. My family doesn't enjoy runny eggs so 18-20 minutes is just right for them. That's the beauty of this simple dish, it's low stress and you can personalize it to your preference. If you're cutting back on carbs, enjoy these baked eggs as is with a drizzle of my Easy Blender Hollandaise if you like. Otherwise, stuff onto a hot buttermilk biscuit, an angel biscuits or a toasted buttered English muffin and you won't be tempted to hit the drive through.
What Is Canadian Bacon Anyway?
Every time I publish a recipe using Canadian bacon for some reason people sense the need to school me on what Canadians call bacon. I find it rather amusing, actually, as we all know this Canadian bacon is basically small rounds of ham and not peameal bacon which is commonly eaten by our Canadian neighbors. No schooling needed. As far as I'm concerned, no matter what it's called, it's all delicious. So, if you have leftover ham from a special meal, you can certainly adapt this egg recipe by thinly slicing it and using it instead. Cooking is all about improvising and making the best of the ingredients that you have on hand. After all, it's who you're sharing the meal with that counts the most.
