Breakfast Cupcakes (I forgot the "original" name!)

Hello friends! Yes, it's been awhile... but the Holidays are over and I have no more excuses not to post! Hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and New Years! I know I did! :)

Let me just say, I made out like a bandit this Christmas! So thankful for all of my new wonderful cooking "goodies"! Now I really have to "cook"! hahaha  This past weekend, I decided to use one of my new pressies... A Cupcake Pan! Yep, I didn't even own one! So I decided to try one of Martha Stewarts recipes!  Like I said it in the "title", I can't remember her name of this recipe.  If you want her way of doing it, go to her website and look under breakfast recipes!

 Ingredients to make only one:  As my sister said to me; "Andersen, party of one?  Your chair is ready!" hahahahaaa.  If you want to make more, just double or triple or quadruple! Yeah buuuuuddy!

2 pieces of Sourdough. (Any will do for the most part)
Grated Cheese (Optional)
1-2 Slices of Bacon (I used 2... don't judge!)
1 Egg
Melted Butter (just a scoop)

Preheat oven to 350*

Cook up some bacon till almost done.  Set aside for later.
Get 2 Pieces of Bread (your choice) and a cookie cutter.  In my case, I used a stemless wine glass!  With the glass, push down over bread, creating two circles. If using a thicker bread, flatten it a bit with your palms.   

In your cupcake pan, lay each piece in, half covering one another and the end of the bread just barely popping up.  Coat the edges with butter.  Smoosh bread down, so it's not being a "hole" hog.

Put some cheese in, then grab 1-2 pieces of bacon.  Length wise, lay across and push only the middle down.  You want the bacon hanging over the sides, but middle flattened.  Is everyone following along? Yes, photos I'm sure would help, but I forgot! :)

Crack an egg and put it right onto the bacon!  It will pour over more than likely, but it's fine! Promise!

Let it cook till whites are done! I'm down with the yolkie yolk, so I cooked it for 18 mins.  Enjoy!

Till next time...
