Bird's Nest Breakfast Cups Recipe

“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.”
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

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