Over at Real Mom Kitchen, Laura made these Egg cups the other day. I had to try them. but I was a little worried about them sticking to my pan. I don't have good luck with thing not sticking in my pan. They always stick!! for that very reason I don't care much for baking.
Easy shopping list:
Yeah, my brother fully supports me in my blogging addiction.
Anyway, grab yourself a muffin pan and spray it down with your favorite pan greaser.
Then wrap a piece of bacon around each cup.
Laura just cracked her eggs straight in. I for one prefer scrambled eggs over pretty much any egg, so I cracked one egg into a cup, scrambled it up and poured it into a cup. Yeah, it's a little more work to scramble each egg separately, but not THAT much more work.
My brother probably wouldn't do it (just teasing you bud!)
Go ahead and bake for about 20 minutes until the eggs are cooked through and your bacon is as crispy as you want it. See how as the bacon shrinks it kind of pulls the egg away from the cup? The grease also helps it not to stick as much.
And then you end up with these beautiful, tasty egg cups! Yum! thanks for the great recipe laura.
On a side now, I also experimented with the recipe, and would like to report my failure. Well, perhaps it didn't have to be quite the failure I turned it into. I decided to try to make little mini quiches wrapped in bacon. My baby loved the original egg cups, she was bound to love these!
I used the same process, and threw in some cheese (soy cheese) and asparagus chunks into each one. I also mixed a little bit of soy milk into the egg to make it more quiche-like. Or maybe it's frittata-like. Either way. . . .
They made a MESS. They didn't stay contained in the bacon (I think because of the extra milk) OR the muffin tin. Now I have to clean out my oven. I HATE cleaning my oven.
And they aren't pretty to look at either. They tasted alright. Captain Jax said there was too much soy in them.
I think I'm just going to stick with the original egg cups. If you try it as quiche, let me know how it works out for you!
