Today I wanted to share with you this easy peasy method for making a cooked breakfast. I had spotted it on Pinterest so many times before but this weekend was the time to finally try it out. It's always fun to cook something yummy on a work free day, but usually with cooking comes a lot of washing up. However with this method it skips all the frying pans and grills, all you need is a deep muffin tray!
On this particular morning we had Bacon, Eggs, Mushrooms and Baked Beans.
Simply pre-heat your oven to Gas mark 5, 190c, 375f and oil your muffin tray (we used a little Frylight). Take one rasher of Bacon and put it in one muffin hole, wrapping it and overlapping it so the sides and base are covered. Next crack an egg into the bacon cup and give it a little sprinkling of salt and pepper.
Fill another muffin hole with a whole Mushroom or half a large Tomato. Bake in the oven for 12 minutes for runny Yolk and 14 minutes for a hard Yolk.
Serve with some Baked Beans or Toast and you are all set for the day ahead of you!
This method makes life so much easier as you don't have to stand around keeping an eye on the bacon or making sure everything is timed perfectly. It's definitely something we will be doing next time we have a lot of guests over for brunch (I'm thinking of the holiday seasons ahead of us) and the best bit is that there will barely be any washing up!
Have you used this method before? What else do you add to your muffin holes? Let me know!
