Bird's Nest Cups

Hi there! Today in the Misadventures of Mindy, I'm making Bird's Nest Cups. A new thing I'm going to try is to feed my flatmate @courtneykusler my meals and have her rate them so I'm not biased. This will be the Courtney Meter.

They're basically bacon, egg, and cheese, held together in convenient little cups.

First, fry up your bacon. Don't add any butter or anything, the bacon can cook itself.

When that's done, take a silicon muffin tray (MUST BE SILICON), and wrap the bacon around inside. If your bacon is too crispy (like mine was) it won't wrap right.

Too Crispy!

Put slices on the bottom, mostly covering it, and a slice going around the inside for a walls. After that, crack your egg into the center of the "bacon cup", and then sprinkle your cut up cheese on top. I used Mature but Mellow cheese from Asda, but whatever your fancy is will also work. I put some cut up green onion on top of mine too, along with salt, pepper, and basil.

Cook in oven for 10min on 350°F/175°C.

Yummy finished product:

Yum! Easy to refrigerate for breakfast OR to grab as a snack/lunch. Just pop them out of the trays.
