This recipe was handed down to me from an old co-worker. It sat and sat on my cook book for at least 5 years before I gave it a try. I am not a huge breakfast person, but when I need to eat, I usually head for oatmeal or sweets. So this spin on a traditional eggs & bacon dish was appealing to me since it wasn't so boring! And boy am I glad I finally gave the recipe a try!
I love the fact that I can eat my bacon, egg, and toast all in one bite. My husband loves to snack on these in the morning and calls them "McDrury's," our personal spin on McDonald's breakfast.

How to Make Bacakes

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat the oven to 400° F. Spray large muffin pan with cooking spray.

    In a frying pan, cook bacon about 3-5 minutes, until partially cooked but not completely crispy (if using precooked bacon skip this step).
    Cut out circles in each piece of bread using a cookie cutter or a drinking glass turned upside down. Press the bread rounds into the greased muffin wells. Curl a piece of bacon around the periphery of each piece of bread, positioning it between the bread and the muffin tin to help keep it in position. Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese in the center of each piece of bread. Crack one egg over each piece of bread.
    Once all the bread pieces have been topped with eggs, bake until eggs are cooked through to your liking (about 15-20 minutes) and bacon is crispy. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin well and pop the egg cups out. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
