Mini Makes #2 - Muffin Breakfast Cups

With Mother's Day in mind, this simple idea transforms a standard breakfast into something a little more special and compact; it would make a nice meal to serve to mum on the 15th.

It's also great for those families that are often short on time in the morning as you can make these in advance and reheat as and when required. You can also adapt the recipe to suit your own taste by adding mushrooms, sausage or even beans. Whatever you fancy!

Ingredients (makes 6)

3 English muffins
3 eggs
6 bacon medallions
3 cherry tomatoes
Black pepper
15g cheese

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees
  • Half the muffins and toast them lightly
  • Grill or dry fry the bacon and set to one side
  • Place the eggs into a bowl and whisk gently just to break the yolks
  • Place the muffin halves into a muffin tray. Push down the centres with the back of a spoon if necessary to keep them in place
  • Place a bacon medallion inside each to line
  • Pour the egg into each carefully
  • Dice the tomatoes and place a few pieces in each
  • Add black pepper 
  • Cook for 8-10 minutes
  • Sprinkle over a little cheese to melt


What will you be doing for Mother's Day?
