BACON cups

***BACON***

Now that I have your attention, I am so excited to bring you 3 Filling Bacon Cups!

These pig strip cups are not only delicious (obviously, it’s bacon), but they’re super easy to make! As a bonus, we’ll show you how we made our toppings of scrambled eggs+ veggies and homemade guacamole.

Here’s what you need for the bacon+ egg cups:

Yield: 1 serving per bacon slice

10 minute prep | 10-15minute cook time | 25minute Total

Bacon cups+ + egg-only filling

  • 1 package BACONNNNNNN (ours had 9 strips, so we adjusted accordingly)

  • 1 egg per bacon cup for as many over-easy or –hard eggs that you want

Here’s what you need if you want to try our other toppings:

Yield: enough for 2 hearty scoops into 6-7 bacon cups

5-10min prep | 5-10min cook time | 20min Total * Majority done while bacon is cooking*

Scrambled with veggies toppings (for ~6-7 bacon cups)

  • 1 egg

  • 1/8 medium sweet onion

  • 1/2 tomato

  • 1/4 cup of frozen green peas

  • 1/8 cup mushrooms

  • Olive oil

Guacamole

  • 2 ripe avocados

  • 1/8 of a medium sweet onion

  • 1/2 medium tomato or 8-10 grape tomatoes

  • 1/2 garlic clove

  • Lemon juice

To start, preheat your oven to 350F. Throw your bacon on a frying pan on HIGH for 2-4 minutes to cook the strips a little. This will make molding them into cups easier! Remove the strips onto a plate to cool, and use a paper towel to squeeze some of the grease out. Then, once they’re cooled off enough to touch, wrap the strips around the pockets in a muffin tray.

(TIP- one side of the bacon is usually wider than the other. Place the wide side on the bottom of the pocket and then wrap around the side. We also made a little tear on one side of the bacon where the bottom of the pocket met the side. This helped keep the bacon flat against the side when we wrapped)
