Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12 cup muffin pan with cooking spray.

  • In a large skillet, fry the bacon pieces over medium heat until browned and crisp, about 8 minutes. Drain off half of the grease. Transfer the bacon and remaining grease to a large bowl. Stir in the shredded potato, shallot and Parmesan cheese. Divide this mixture evenly between the muffin cups. Pour eggs into each cup, filling to the top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the egg is firm, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and set the dial to Broil. Place a slice of tomato onto each cupcake and return to the oven. Broil for about 3 minutes, or until toasted. Allow to cool slightly, then arrange the cupcakes on a tray and top each one with a slice avocado, if using.

I added sausage with the bacon and a little cheddar cheese to fit with my family's taste. Also since I don't much like warm tomatos I didn't broil mine. The recipe needed a little salt but was overall good. The kids liked them. Next time I may try green onions and add a little feta in with the eggs. Read More

These were liked alright by my family but not a huge success. I had wanted to freeze them for quick breakfasts for them. They did not freeze very well at all. Read More

I adjusted this to fit our taste and by what we had on hand. It is a great basic recipe to build off of and add variety even in the same batch. I think this would be great to pre-bake for camping then reheat without the tomatoes or avacado. Read More

I found this bland and dense. I even added some thyme and mushrooms. The tomatoes made the top mushy. I was so wanting to like this as I am always looking for new breakfast ideas for my farmer husband.:) Read More
