  • 8 slices maple-smoked bacon
  • 12 eggs
  • garlic salt
  • seasoned pepper
  • crushed red pepper flakes
  • dried parsley


Cut the bacon crosswise into 1-inch squares and place five squares evenly around the edge of each cup in a greased 12-cup muffin tin, keeping half the bacon inside and half outside each cup. Break 1 egg into each cup, add a dash of seasonings to taste, and bake in a preheated 325 degree oven for 25 minutes.

Carefully loosen the egg-bacon mixture with a sharp knife, then lift from the cups with a tablespoon onto paper towel to blot. Serve hot with fresh-baked bread or hot English muffins, strawberries, butter, and jams.
