Cheesy Bacon Egg Cups

Makes 6 delicious cups.

Ingredients needed:

  • 3 generous tablespoons of grated Westminster Smoked Cheddar
  • 6 slices of freshly cooked bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • 3 thick slices of your favorite fresh bread
  • A pinch of salt and pepper for seasoning
  • 6 thinly chopped spring onions

Let's get cooking:

  1. Prep the oven by heating it to 400°F.
  2. Grab a medium sized jar, or handy cookie cutter, and cut two circles into each slice of fresh bread. In a muffin baking tray, place one circle of bread at the bottom of each cup.
  3. Wrap a piece of freshly cooked bacon (we know - it’s hard to resist taking a bite!) around the edges of each muffin cup to create a casing for the delicious filling. Top tip! It’s important to use bacon that has just been cooked and is still warm to ensure it doesn’t break or crumble.
  4. Time to embrace the cheese! Sprinkle 1/2 a tablespoon of our Westminster Smoked Cheddar into each cup - it’s okay, you can add a little extra if you like… we won’t tell - and crack the egg on top.
  5. Add a pinch of salt and pepper for seasoning, and bake the dish for 15 minutes (a little longer if you like a firmer yolk).
  6. Once cooked, top the cheesy delights with spring onions and serve immediately.

    Top tip! For that added dash of flavor, sprinkle some chives on top of the egg before cooking.
