Brush cupcake tin with melted butter. Press the bread into the muffin tin, then brush more butter onto the bread (picture 2)
slice the bacon in half then slice them each half length-ways giving you 4 strips of bacon out of each piece. Wrap a piece around each crust and then place them on a baking tray (picture 3)
Bake both the tray of bacon soldiers and the bread cups in the oven for 10 minutes
Flip the bacon soldiers over. Crack an egg into each bread cup and season with salt and pepper (picture 4)
Bake both trays again for approx 10 minutes. You want the bacon to be crispy and the eggs to be just cooked.
Serve, Dip, and Enjoy! (picture 5)
The original recipe called for twice as much bacon, but I found it was way too much around the pieces of crust. If you do not want to use melted butter, cooking spray on your pan works great and just spray a little on the bread as well. Keep an eye on the bacon during the second cook. 8 minutes I find is long enough, the bacon will crisp up as it sits waiting to be served.
