Bacon and Egg Pots

There are some things that I can only fantasize about. Like breakfast in bed. But what is possible though is I let someone else make my breakfast. My trusted oven! And see how.

Ingredients for Bacon and Egg Pots are:

Strips of bacon, 3-4 for each ramekin
1-2 eggs per each person
Finely chopped fresh parsley or chives
Sprinkle of freshly cracked black pepper
Half teaspoon butter

Throw the bacon strips in a skillet and cook till they are dark pink in color, but not crisp. Drain them on paper towels.

Line each ramekin with a little butter on your fingers. Place one or two strips of bacon at the base and another on the sides, making a “ bacon cup” inside the ramekin.

Crack an egg or two over the bacon base. Crack some black pepper over it.

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Place all the ramekins on a water bath and bake for 15-18 minutes or unless the eggs are set and the whites visible.
