Egg Nest Breakfast

Yummy! This recipe has become one of our favs lately. You will need a muffin pan, of the large variety. Spray with a non-stick spray. Place several pieces of thick bacon on a jelly roll sheet (you will need 1 to 2 pieces per egg nest) and place in a cold 400 degree oven. Bake until bacon is about halfway done. Reduce oven temp to 350 and remove bacon. Meanwhile, as the bacon is baking, cut any type of bread into circles to fit the bottom of the tins. I have found a wine glass that is the perfect size! How wonderful! Lightly butter the top of the rounds and place them in the bottom of each section. WIth two forks as your tools, place bacon around the sides of the muffin tin sections. Depending on your bacon, you may need more than one strip - sometimes I have to cut extra strips in half to use. Carefully crack open an egg and drop on top of bread circle, in the bacon nest. Place in oven and bake until desired egg doneness. At the very end, sprinkle on some cheddar cheese and return to oven to melt. You can see the bottom of one I turned over - the bread is toasted! I have 4 big muffin tins, and can make 24 of these egg nests. People gobble them up like crazy! If you are lucky, you will have leftovers for the next day. They warm up beautifully in the microwave.
