These personal-sized bacon and egg bread baskets are one of the best ways to enjoy a fun twist on a traditional breakfast.


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 7 slices soft whole grain bread
  • 6 slices Maple Leaf Foods Natural Bacon (I used “Lazy Maple”)
  • 6 large eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Grease muffin cups and set aside.
  3. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, until nearly crips (about 2 minutes on each side). While it’s cooking, work on the bread baskets and keep an eye on it.
  4. Using your hands (or a rolling pin), press down on the bread to flatten it. Cut around the edges to form a circle (you can use a small bowl or cookie cutter to help form the large circles, about 4-5 inches)
  5. Press the circles into the muffin cups, to make a basket. If the bottoms break on any of your baskets, use the extra bread to fill in the holes.
  6. Press the top sides down around the edge of the muffin cups.
  7. Brush the bread baskets with remaining melted butter.
  8. Place a bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  9. Bake until egg whites are just set, about 20 to 25 minutes.
  10. Use a knife to loosen up the baskets and release them from the muffin cups. You can pick them up using large tongs. Serve and enjoy!
