Finger food or not.

I served these a few weeks ago with baked grapefruit (recipe to come), and a few other dishes, but you can also set out as finger food!

They’re a small, easy pickup food at its best!

  2. Help. On the bacon egg cups can i use pork bacon

  3. Love how the bacon crisps around the edges. I’m a crisp bacon fan, so it’s important. I asked the kids to make these for Mother’s Day.

  4. Have you ever made these and had some left over for later? Do you just refrigerate them and heat them back up when you’re ready to eat them again? I’m thinking of making these on Sunday to have breakfast prepared for the week but wonder if you’ve had any experience in them being left overs?

  5. These look and sound delicious! My daddy would add a dollop of mayonnaise to the top before eating it.

  6. I am adding this to the menu! Looks great! I’m curious about the grapefruit recipe. :)

  7. LOVE! Eggs are my go-to meal, any time of day. I love having different ways to mix it up!

  8. This would be such a wonderful breakfast, my whole family would love it!
