How to Make Bacon and Egg cups
- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
- Wrap 1 piece of bacon around the inside of 6 cups of a 12-cup muffin pan to create rings. Put a few slices of potato on the bottom of each cup and divide the bell pepper among the cups. Place muffin pan in oven and bake until the fat starts to render from the bacon (you’ll hear it sizzle) and the bacon begins to crisp and turn light brown on the top edges, about 10 to 12 minutes.
- Remove the muffin pan from the oven and crack an egg into each cup, making sure the yolk is inside the bacon ring. Continue baking until the bacon is crisp, the egg whites are cooked through and the yolks are still runny, about 10 minutes longer. Run a knife around the edges of each cup and remove to a plate. Sprinkle with the chives and serve with hot sauce. Hollandaise is nice too.
