My home's in the country, right next door to my sister and brother-in-law's. They and their two children all enjoy this dish each time I serve it as a special evening meal—although it can also be made for breakfast or lunch. —Susan Buttel, Plattsburgh, New York

Ingredients

  • 12 bacon strips, diced
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 12 slices firm-textured white bread
  • 12 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Using a slotted spoon, remove to paper towels to drain. In a small saucepan, heat syrup and butter until butter is melted; set aside.
  2. Trim crust from bread; flatten slices with a rolling pin. Brush one side generously with syrup mixture; press each slice into a greased muffin cup with syrup side down. Divide bacon among muffin cups.
  3. Carefully break one egg into each cup. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover with foil. Bake at 400° until egg whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard, 18-20 minutes. Serve immediately.
