Baked Egg Muffin- Only 300 calories
I made these this morning, and am in love with them! It is a great recipe for a Sunday morning, or a brunch. I shaved off most of the cheese, and only added half of the bacon, so I got them to be around 250 calories. Thought I'd share with you all!
6 slices bacon
1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 tablespoons maple syrup
6 slices bread, crusts removed
salt and black pepper to taste
6 tablespoons heavy cream
6 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese, or as desired
Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate; crumble and set aside.
Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease muffin cups.
Combine the melted butter and maple syrup in a small bowl. Flatten a piece of bread with a rolling pin. Brush the bread with the butter mixture. Line the muffin cup with the flattened bread. Repeat with the remaining bread slices. Bake in a preheated oven until the bread crisps, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Sprinkle crumbled bacon into the bottom of the toast cups. Crack an egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Top each egg with 1 tablespoon of heavy cream and 1 tablespoon cheese. Bake until the whites are just set, about 10 to 14 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your taste.
Yum! I don't really use heavy cream so maybe I can use a bit of half & half or milk instead. So many ideas and possibilities though!!
For a "french toast" muffin version, same thing as above recipe except for pepper, salt, cheese but beat the egg and cream together, add a bit of sweetener/sugar, and cinnamon. You could even do a sort of bread pudding muffins by tearing up bread into pieces, a little bit more cream and throw some raisins in it!
Thanks so much for sharing. :)
Evaporated skimmed milk is an excellent replacement for cream
This looks absolutely delicious! Thank you for the recipe. i'll have to try this myself sometime soon!
