Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Remove tops, core, ribs, and seeds from bell peppers. Cut them into quarters and flatten to facilitate cutting into small dice. Heat oil over medium-high heat and saute shallots to soften before adding in peppers. Cook, stirring often, until slightly softened but colors are still bright. Remove from heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  2. Lightly grease 4 cups of a muffin tin and insert one slice of Canadian bacon into each cup. Divide bell pepper mixture among the 4 cups and carefully crack one egg into each bacon cup on top of the peppers. Bake in center rack of oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until whites are set but yolks are still slightly runny (bake longer or shorter according to taste.) Season eggs to taste and carefully remove by gently scooping out bacon cups with spoons and rubber spatulas. Serve garnished with fresh herbs.

These are OK. The eggs are a little bit rubbery. I think next time I will just scramble them like usual and serve the Canadian bacon on the side. The best thing about them is their low-carb qual...

QUICK AND EASY..I LEFT OUT THE PEPPERS BECAUSE MY HUSBAND DOESNT LIKE THEM...I ALSO WISKED THE EGGS IN A BOWL AND POURED THEM IN THE CUPS..I SPRINKLED A LITTLE CHEESE THE LAST FEW MINUTES OF BAK...

Awesome for breakfast or brunch! Yummy. Instead of greasing I used Pam, used frozen pepper strips and my biggest hint is instead of muffin pan I used ramkins so that the canadian bacon fit. I...

Wonderful!! If you make 4 approx. 1" cuts equally spaced and perpendicular to the edge of the bacon, it will fit nicely into the muffin tin without popping up.

Perfect for SBD. Adjusted slightly, mostly in size of dish. Used a large ramekin (6oz) and used red pepper, onion, shallot & mushroom for the veggie mixture (though it could hold a lot more ve...

This was really good and pretty simple. My changes were from the advice of others, whisking the eggs before adding, including mushroom w/peppers, and a touch of cheese. But I did have enough to...

Excellent & easy. I didn't have canadian bacon on hand, so I used thinly sliced smoked deli ham. Also added cooked mushroooms, spinach, and 1 tsp minced garlic. Topped the egg with shredded c...

These were so tasty, I fixed them for brunch this weekend and everyone loved them including my brother-in-law and his wife who are professional chefs by trade. They both raved about them. I se...

Great recipe for a small group. I made them even easier by just scrambing eggs with a touch of heavy cream and tossing in some dried dill and dried chives, no peppers or shallots on hand. I'll...
