Kids will love being involved in making the recipe, and Mom will love that you thought to treat with a fresh homemade breakfast.

Ingredients

Prep Time

15 min

Total Time

45 min

Yield

Makes 6 cups
  • 6 Egg
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/8 tsp Black Pepper
  • 1/2 cup Baby Spinach
  • 6 strip(s) LGCM Bacon
  • 1/4 cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Directions

  • 1

    Place each strip of bacon in a muffin tin cup, wrapping the bacon around the edge of the cup in a circle. Place in a 375ºF oven, and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and drain the excess grease from the bottom of each muffin cup. If making these with kids, an adult should help remove the bacon grease as it will be very hot.

  • 2

    In a small bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, salt and pepper. Once whisked, add the shredded cheese, then divide the baby spinach between the muffin cups, pushing it into the center of each bacon circle. Finally, pour the egg mix into the muffin cups, over the top of the spinach. Place the tray back in the oven and bake for another 20 minutes.

    After 20 minutes, remove from oven, then allow to cool slightly. Take a butter knife around the edges of each muffin cup, loosening the bacon, and remove from the muffin tin. Serve while hot!
