Always have an adult helping you in the kitchen!
My Dad found this idea on the internet & we played around with it ...it was so good I ate 2 egg whites & everything ..(I used to hate egg whites till I tried this)
Dad thinks this is just as good as a fried breakfast! we've made this quite a few times together.
Get an adult to help you, ..it's simple , tasty & fun! we sometimes make this before cubs set the timer on the oven to pre-heat & stick it in to cook when we get home.
Lightly grill some bacon, enough to line a non stick muffin tray (best because they're deeper) or use a cup-cake tray.
(if you haven't got a non stick then use some margerine or butter to line the insides of your tin ..so they don't stick when in the oven.
The bacon needs to be wiggly not crisp, you might need to use scissors to cut a base , & then use another piece or more to line the sides of the cup.
Now you can crack an egg into the bacon cup ..so it's now a "bacon & egg cup"...
Add some salt & pepper, philidelphia cheese, herbs, spinach, even a spoon of baked beans (YOU CAN ADD THESE ON TOP OF THE EGG OR UNDER IT)
DON't fill it to the top or it'll spill over when it's cooking. LEAVE SOME ROOM!
OR you could make some scrambled eggs & pour in some of the mix!
(we use 2 eggs per person)
STICK IT IN A PRE-HEATED OVEN (AT 180c for 15-20 minutes ..check after 12 minutes in case more time is needed)
get some bread toasted & buttered a few minutes before you remove the bacon-eggcups!
Ask your parent or carer to remove your cooked bacon-egg-cups from the hot oven & slide a knife or spatula round the bacon to "try" & remove them in one piece, doesn't matter if they crumble though!
serve up on toast & enjoy!
how about mushrooms, sliced peppers, beans pre-cooked chopped up sausage & other things you like as a filling with the egg? ..I really recommend a good dollop of cream cheese!
If you give it a go, let us know how you got on!
