Bacon, Egg, and Toast Cups

A breakfast dish that gives you all the meat, eggs, and bread you need in one small cup.

Preparing breakfast for overnight guests is always tricky for me. There’s always the crowd pleasing pancakes and waffles, but of course that leaves me stuck in the kitchen.

And then there’s the issue of battling guilt laden, calorie heavy breakfasts with my natural tendencies towards lighter fare. These little gems, however, kind of swing both ways. Guests can take as many as they want to fill their appetite. If they want just one, however, they’re only obligated to half a piece of whole wheat bread, 1 egg, and half a piece of bacon. Not so bad.

And the cuteness factor was hard to beat! Next time I think I’ll add shredded cheese to the mix.
