I made 2 of these today (wanted to test the recipe before going gung-ho). Backed them about 15 minutes and used Oatnut Bread, did not use maple syrup because I don't like syrup with my eggs. This was a definite do again recipe! I will make some with syrup and some with out for variety for our next family breakfast.
I was initially so excited about this recipe but the reviews are correct. I thought I could tweak the recipe and make it work since it is a fantastic idea but their is an important tip missing that I can not figure out. The egg was over cooked. I tried letting the toast bake a few minutes before adding the bacon and egg but it didn't work. They were actually better eaten cold as left overs than while warm. They were very dry. I was disappointed.
If I ever did make this again, I reduce the baking time. In the 20 minutes recommended, the yoke was hard.
I am definitely going to try this recipe... but if the bread is undercooked and the egg is overcooked would those of you who have made these suggest that you toast the bread in the muffin pans for an extra 5 mins before adding the rest of the ingredients?
