Canadian Bacon Egg Cups – Easy breakfast recipes are the best. 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. One of my all-time most popular recipes are my Baked French Eggs and this one is sure to become a fast favorite, too. For these baked eggs, start by lining a muffin tin with 2 slices of Canadian bacon. Then carefully drop an egg into each muffin cup and top with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Finish them off with your favorite cheese, and it’s oven time it’s as simple as that.
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 biscuit or a toasted buttered English muffin and you won’t be tempted to hit the drive through.
We all know Canadian bacon is really ham right? So, if you have leftover ham from a special meal, thinly slice it and use 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.
