DIPLO TUMMY: Bacon, Egg and Toast Cups

I’ve posted photos of this on my Instagram and have gotten requests for the recipe. This has been in “draft” mode for a while – I’m so sorry I thought I had already posted it. I found this recipe via Pinterest, where I find most of my recipes. So here it is, the recipe from Martha Stewart after the jump!

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 35 minutes
  • Yield: Makes 6


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 8 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter 6 standard muffin cups. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and, with a 4 1/4-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with remaining butter.
  2. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium, until almost crisp, 4 minutes, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. Bake until egg whites are just set, 20 to 25 minutes. Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts. Serve immediately.

Cook’s Note

Standard muffin pans come in 6- or 12-cup size; if baking 6 items in a 12-cup pan, leave empty space in between. Nonstick pans are nice but not essential. Beware of very thin pans, which often lead to burning. Place pans on a baking sheet to make them easier to get in and out of the oven.

Try (this recipe) cooked, crumbled sausage in place of bacon or make a vegetarian version with sautéed spinach. Dress things up with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.
