Recipe of the day
Bacon and Eggs
|Food Mall: Canadian Bacon|
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
In a muffin pan, place a piece of Canadian bacon into each hole. Press it down and crack an egg into each piece of bacon. Cook in oven for approximately:
◦Runny Yolk – 8 minutes
◦Semi-Soft Yolk- 10 minutes
◦Hard, Crumbly Egg -14 minutes
Pop the egg “cups” out of the pan once they’re cool enough to handle. Whatever you don’t eat goes straight into the fridge for a snack or another meal.
