When I was in high school, my mom made sure to always prepare a big breakfast before I had a test. She always emphasized how important it was to eat well.

This weekend is finals week at UCSD. My brothers have been busy studying away. On Saturday morning, I was awake early so I decided to make them these bacon egg toast cups which I had bookmarked. I love this idea of putting all the traditional breakfast items into one. You don’t even need a knife or fork to eat this with.

These are really easy to make too. It took me only a few minutes to make. Baby Bro and the BF really liked this. I’ll have to make them again soon.

Recipe: Bacon Egg Toast Cups

(adapted from Annie’s Eats)


  • 4 slices of bacon 2 slices of bread 4 eggs salt and pepper to taste


  1. Using the top of a round glass that has an opening slightly bigger than a muffin mold, about 3.5 inches, cut circles from bread. You should be able to cut two circles per slice of bread.
  2. Grease four muffin molds. Place the bread on the bottom of each muffin mold. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  3. Cook bacon slices in a pan about 3 minutes or until halfway cooked. Place bacon slices around the edges of the muffin tin. To help them stay, you might want to tuck the ends underneath the slices of bread.
  4. Crack an egg and put in the middle of each muffin mold. You may want to leave out some of the egg white so that the yolk doesn’t overcook while waiting for the egg white to cook.
  5. Place muffin molds in the oven and cook for about 12-15 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking and bacon is crisp. I like to leave the egg yolk a little runny.
  6. Use a knife around the edges to help lift cups from the muffin mold. Season with salt and pepper and serve while hot.

    I’m taking my DAT’s on Friday, April 1st. Some protein and carbs would be excellent for the 5.5 hour test. *hint hint* :)

    This is a super idea, I shall have to try it! Mind you, I’m such a messy eater knowing my luck the bacon wont hold the egg properly and I’ll end up with the yolk all down my top! :p

      I was sort of wondering what kept it all together, but they seemed fairly sturdy. I think everything cooking together and the egg white kept it together.

    I just made my own version of these with two pieces of bread and egg whites instead of a cracked egg and wow they are still soooo good. I will definitely be making them again. Thanks for the tip :)

    I wish you were around to make me breakfast for my finals!

      Haha. I’m sure you can convince someone to make this for you!

    I made this was a slice of ham folded up in the cup. Using ham, you don’t have to worry about the bacon being done.

      That works too! I love bacon though. And I use precooked bacon now so I don’t have to worry about cooking the bacon.

    Great little idea and would be good for Christmas morning too. Only thing I would add would be some shredded cheddar on top. I have a six cup muffin pan that would be perfect for this. do you think english muffins would work too?

    • Kirbie replied: — April 16th, 2012 @ 9:38 am

      Yes I’ve done English muffins before too! They definitely work, esp if you have the bigger muffin pan. I’ve tried adding cheese on top as well and I like all the different variations.

    these would be great with a slice of cheese on the bread piece!

      great idea!
