Add All Ingredients

24 Big Y bacon slices (not thick cut)

6 whole wheat bread slices

6 Tbsp. Big Y shredded cheddar cheese

12 Big Y large white eggs

-Big Y salt and black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 400ºF. Place some bacon, in a single layer, in a large nonstick skillet, turn the heat to medium, and let it cook for 8 minutes. Flip and cook for 5 minutes or until bacon just begins to crisp but is still pliable. Repeat with remaining bacon. Using a cookie cutter, cut out 12 circles from the bread slices, just big enough to fill the bottom of your muffin tin; place in muffin cups and wrap 2 slices of the partially cooked bacon around each circle. Evenly divide the cheese among the cups, then crack an egg into each cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook for 12 minutes or until desired degree of doneness is reached.
