Ingredients

  • 8 slices turkey bacon or Canadian bacon
  • 1/2 cup shredded smoked cheddar cheese 
  • 8 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. finely chopped green onions, chives or scallion tops (optional)

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350. Lightly coat 8 muffin cups with olive oil or spray. Line each muffin cup with 1 slice of bacon. Place 1 tablespoon of cheese in the bottom of each. Carefully break 1 egg into each muffin cup. Bake for 15 minutes, or until set and the whites are cooked but the yolks are still soft. Sprinkle with green onions or chives on top. Let stand for 5 minutes before removing from cups to serve.
