 Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups
“This is a lightened up version of an original recipe that called for regular bacon and eggs,” writes Aris Gonzalez from Deltona, Florida. “Everyone loves it and thinks I really fussed, but it's so easy! It makes such a pretty presentation that I often serve this to overnight guests.”
6 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 30 min.


  • 12 turkey bacon strips
  • 1-1/2 cups egg substitute
  • 6 tablespoons shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley


  • In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 2 minutes on each
  • side or until partially set but not crisp. Coat six muffin cups with
  • cooking spray; wrap two bacon strips around the inside of each cup.
  • Fill each with 1/4 cup egg substitute; top with cheese.
  • Bake at 350° for 18-20 minutes or until set. Cool for 5 minutes
