Bacon & Egg baskets

bacon and egg baskets

It’s brunch time!
Here’s how to make easy breakfast baskets…

4 – 6 eggs
1 spring onion, sliced
4 – 6 slices or rye/ wholewheat bread
200 / 250 g fried bacon strips
half a cup cheddar cheese
1 – 2 tomatoes, sliced
salt and pepper
fresh rocket leaves

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius and grease a muffin tin. Place a slice of bread in each cup – fill the sides and the bottom completely to form a basket.
Break one egg into each cup. Add bacon, onion, tomato and cheese to each cup. Sprinkle with some salt and pepper.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Serve with fresh rocket leaves for a bit of green colour.

Enjoy your breakfast baskets!

1/2 cup cooking oil
3/4 cup milk
pinch of salt
some garlic and herb spice

Put spoons-fulls (3/4 full) in each muffin tin. Bake for 25 – 30 minutes.

Enjoy warm with some butter if you prefer. And then have another one.
