A yummy breakfast idea

For our honeymoon, Thomas and I planned for several meals we wanted to make together. The first one we tried out was something I had been looking forward to ever since he first mentioned it a while back: bacon-wrapped eggs! (I love bacon, as you may recall...)

The process is fairly simple and the result is delicious. If you're at all curious, try it out. You'll like it!

Bacon-wrapped Eggs

a few strips of bacon
the same number of eggs
some cooking spray
a muffin pan

  1. Start by frying your bacon. You'll want to cook it pretty thoroughly, but not to the point that it becomes crispy - it has to maintain some flexibility to fit into the muffin pan.
  2. Preheat your oven to 375* F. Spray the muffin pan with some cooking spray.
  3. Once your bacon is ready, drain it for a moment on some paper towels and let it cool until you can handle it without burning your fingers. 
  4. Use one slice of bacon per muffin well (you don't need to fill the whole pan) and arrange it so it follows the circumference of the well.
  5. Crack an egg into each well that has a slice of bacon around it. 
  6. Put your pan into the oven; it takes about 15 to 20 minutes for them to be ready. Take them out when the egg white is no longer clear and the yolk is to your liking.
  7. Enjoy! I found it easiest to eat them with my hands. Well, I used my hands to bring them to my mouth, that is. 
(don't forget to make your meal well-balanced - we had a bagel and some fruit cocktail and a glass of milk with our bacon-wrapped eggs!)
