Turkey bacon and egg cups

Last weekend I was in the mood for something different for breakfast and so came the turkey bacon cups. These are perfect for a relaxed Sunday breakfast in bed served with spinach, orange juice and fruit . Not only are they tasty, they are fun, easy and quick to make too. 


-While bacon is cooking whisk together eggs, chives, cheese and onions in a bowl. Remove bacon from heat after it is partially cooked after 3 minutes.

- Cut bread into rounds 

- Bread should look  like this after cutting.

- Grease muffin pan with butter then sprinkle one side of the bread with olive oil . Press bread into muffin pan with oiled side down. 

- Place bacon into bread cups followed by egg mixture.

-Bake in the oven for about 12 minutes or till eggs are set

- Remove from muffin pan and serve warm . I served mine with sauteed spinach and fresh tomatoes.

6 slices whole grain bread
