Did someone say the words, easy and breakfast?

It’s true.  My Sunrise Breakfast Bowl recipe requires only one muffin pan. There are no spoons, bowls, spatulas or skillets to clean, which makes this the perfect breakfast recipe for kids to make.

My girls love to cook and could crack an egg before they were out of diapers, so they’re able to make this easy recipe almost completely on their own with just a little help getting the muffin tin in and out of the oven.

4.  Heat bacon in the microwave according to directions (about 1 minute) and place one cooked slice into each egg.

Yes, I use the precooked bacon and am proud of it.  I love cooking with- and eating- bacon but hate bacon grease… what a lovely invention, this precooked stuff.  Let someone else clean the grease!

5.  Bake until egg is just cooked, or until desired consistency- yolk runny, about 10 minutes; slightly runny, about 13 minutes and cooked thoroughly, about 17 minutes.

Serve with fresh fruit.
