Preheat your oven to 400° whilst cooking the bacon until half cooked. It should look brown but NOT crispy. That comes later.
Grab a muffin tin, grease it and begin lining each muffin cup with 2/3 strips of bacon. Wrap the bacon inside, so that it resembles a lining. We found that round bacon bought at a deli makes a huge difference for ease of lining. Be careful of the heat!
Crack an egg into the delicious looking bacon. Resist the urge to eat the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle some cheese and finely chopped herbs onto the top.
Cook for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool for a minute or two. Two of these self-contained breakfast vessels make for one sturdy serving.
