Baked Eggs in Maple Toast Squares
1 1/2 Tblspn of butter
1 1/2 tablespoon of pure maple syrup (and more for serving optional)
6 slices of bread (tight crumb realitively thinsliced white bread works best)
3 slices of bacon cooked crisp and broken
(this recipe doubles and triples easily)
6 large eggs
6 muffin cups, I use cupcake sheets. Use regular muffin cups not mini or oversize. Ramikins will take longer to cook but you can use them.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Butter 6 muffin cups (or more if needed)
In small sauce pan melt butter and add syrup.(you can do this in a micrwave)
Remove crusts from bread. Flatten each slice with a rolling pin. Brush both sides of each slice with syrup/butter mixture.
Pat 1 slice into each muffin cup and sprinkle with bacon pieces.
Break 1 egg into each cup(do not stirr or blend) and bake until eggs are set starting checking after 5 mninutes.
Remove and serve and drizzle with maple if desired.
