Baked Sunny Side Up Eggs & Bacon

6 slices thick cut bacon
6 eggs
3 tablespoons grated aged goat cheese* (optional)
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 350. Spray 6 wells in a muffin tin with nonstick spray. Make a ring of bacon around the sides of each well, creating a “wall” of bacon. Some overlap with be necessary. Crack an egg into each well. Sprinkle with cheese if desired. Season with salt and pepper. Bake for 30 minutes or until desired doneness. Run a thin knife around the edges to loosen and remove the egg. Eat immediately.

My thoughts:

I am always looking for interesting things to have for breakfast. It always seems to be shortchanged in this house, I work from home and tend to just eat lunch early and my husband eats at work. But sometimes I just feel like some eggs and bacon. This is a fun, easy way to do it. It takes like 5 seconds to put together and zero hands-on time after that. I was worried it might be greasy from the bacon but the fat all drips to the bottom and stays there when you remove the eggs. My eggs were pretty dry but you could blot them off if needed. The cheese isn’t 100% necessary but I loved the flavor it added to the eggs. Sort of like a sunny side up faux omelet.
