Recipe – “Bacon and Egg Cups”

Took inspiration from here and did this:

  • 12 eggs, (initially I whisked 6 eggs with cream, but the tide was out, so added what ended up being another 6 eggs whisked without additional cream)
  • enough bacon to fit 6 texas muffin size cups
  • half an onion, chopped,
  • half a capsicum
  • grated cheese
  • 2 cups had a dollop of pesto-y type stuff I had in the fridge

Sauted onion and then added capsicum

Lined the texas muffin cups with bacon, tried to get fat side poking up so they’ll crisp up in oven

Added the chopped onions/capsicum, then topped up with egg.

Added the pesto to 2, then grated cheese across all of them.

Oven @ 180C … 20mins
