12 slices Thick Cut Canadian Bacon
1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
Salt and pepper (to taste)
I grew up peameal bacon and eggs. So what is the difference between regular bacon and Canadian bacon, you may be asking? Well Canadian bacon is more like a ham than the cured bacon that most of us are used to.
However peameal bacon typically comes in circular shapes or in a large piece from your local butcher and won’t fit well in these cups. So we are still using Canadian Bacon just not circular peameal kind for this recipe.
If you want to try peameal bacon then you should go to your local butcher to see if they have it for you. Some people like to add chives to these cups or a bunch of spices, personally I think simple is best.
What also makes these Bacon Egg cups awesome is the clean up, it takes half the time than if I was to make my regular bacon and egg breakfast. Plus I can feed twice the amount of people and or have leftovers for the next few days. Talk about a ready made breakfasts eh?
Between me and my partner, we will make these cups on a Sunday and then they tend to last us for a few days of instant on the go breakfasts. You will want to serve 2 cups per person, so one tray can feed 6 people. If you have kids then one cup should be enough.
If it’s just you, cut the recipe in half and make 6 cups. Breakfast does not get any easier, healthier or quick than this.
Thicker bacon works best for this recipe, however you can use thin as well. Serve with coffee all the while not disturbing your morning routine, I hope you enjoy.
