1Preheat oven to 400. Butter six muffin cups.
2In a small pan, melt the butter and add the syrup. You can also do this in a microwave.
3Remove crusts from bread. Flatten each slice with a rolling pin. Brush both sides of each slice with the syrup mixture. Pat one slice into each muffin cup and sprinkle the bacon pieces in the cups. Break an egg into each cup and bake til eggs are set; start checking after about 5 minutes. Lift the toast cups from the pan and serve at once, drizzled with more syrup if you like.
The best way to crack an egg? On the counter with a flat blow. It may take a little practice to get the amount of force right, but you'll find that the shell breaks cleanly.
