Baked Bacon and Egg Cups

For many years we've been spending Christmas mornings at my dad's house. Since he knows that our visits to other family members during the day usually involve more than one big Christmas dinner, he's made it a tradition to make a small but special breakfast. These baked eggs are a Christmas breakfast staple and are super simple and quick to make. Despite how easy these are, there is something about the way they are served that makes the meal feel a little more special and elegant.

The traditional way to make them is by cracking in a whole egg as is, but since my kids only eat their eggs scrambled I like to make a few with scrambled eggs as well. I'm sure putting in additions to the scrambled eggs like meats, cheeses, and veggies would  work well too if you wanted to go that route. I do think the whole egg looks prettier though. They are the perfect addition to any Christmas breakfast or brunch!

Baked Eggs

Bacon Strips
Salt and Pepper

Partially cook bacon strips until they are pretty much cooked, but still flexible and not crispy.
Line muffin tins with the bacon strips.
Crack an egg into each lined tin. Salt and pepper to taste.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
