Maple Toast Eggs


These maple toast eggs are a nice change for breakfast..it's a one egg breakfast in a muffin cup!
  • 6 bacon strips, diced..I used maple flavored bacon
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/8 cup butter
  • 6 slices firm textured white bread..I used multigrain
  • 6 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a skillet cook bacon till crisp, place on paper towels to absorb grease, then dice and set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan heat syrup and butter until butter is melted.
  3. Trim crusts from bread, flatten slices with a rolling pin.
  4. Brush one side generously with syrup mixture and press each slice into a lightly greased muffin cup with syrup side down.
  5. Divide diced bacon among muffin cups.
  6. Carefully break one egg into each cup.
  7. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  8. Cover with foil.
  9. Bake at 400ยบ for 18 to 20 min or until the eggs reach desired doneness..I baked them for 22 min.
  10. Serve immediately..I had a little syrup mixture leftover so I drizzled it over the eggs.

  2. Wow, I've never heard of this and it looks great. What a great idea when having company for breakfast. I'm no short order cook in the morning and making this many tastely eggs at once would be a much better option. Thanks for sharing :)

  10. This sounds divine!

    Another variation of this is made by using two slices of multi-grain bread. Use a biscuit cutter to cut a round hole in one slice. Lay it atop the other whole slice on an oven tray, not in a muffin tin. (Butter the top side of the cut slice and the underside of the whole slice.) Pour a raw egg into the "nest." I put this into a toaster oven set on 300 degrees, using foil for awhile to prevent burning of the upper bread.

    The flavor of real butter on oven-toasted bread is amazing. The yummy egg is icing on the cake.
