Recipe: Bacon Egg Toast Cups, Revisited (Martha Stewart)

Inject a little sunshine into your day :)


One of the first Martha Stewart recipes that I tried and fell in love with is her bacon egg and toast cups. A definite crowd-pleaser, I decided to revisit this recipe for this month's bloghop "Cook Like Martha Stewart" that I am co-hosting. You can find the previous blogpost and full recipe here.

The best thing about these toast cups is the cute presentation. I have made this over and over again since my family loves it and never tires of them. Put this in front of any kids and they will surely eat it! Put it in front of any adult and they will give you nods of approval. I made it for Hubby for the first time this morning and he absolutely loved it. His comments were "the bread is crisp but still soft, and the eggs are "just nice" - with a lovely soft yolk".

After lots and lots of trial and error in the kitchen, I would suggest 16 minutes (in an oven without fan) as the optimal cooking time for a soft yolk. The egg white has just set and the edges of the toast is nicely browned. Try it this weekend - a very simple recipe, it only takes about 30 minutes in total to prepare and make. (Also great for Christmas day breakfast! I'm sure your guests will love it)




The look of satisfaction on Baby D's face ;) - priceless!

  16. I've seen this bacon egg in toast cups on food blogs, but I haven't had a chance to give it a try. It's a perfect brunch menu too...but when was the last time I hosted a brunch... LOL. Not after kids for sure! =P But this is definitely weekend menu. Baby D is adorable!!! I miss that age..

  17. Hi Yen,

    Baby D looks very adorable feasting his delicious breakkie cup! Revisited recipes are always reliable and good and I can clearly see that this must be one of them.
