Recipe Tips

  • Once the egg is cooked, use a knife to run around the edges of each cup. It will hopefully loosen the egg cups, making them easier to remove.
  • When pre-cooking the bacon, try to make sure you do not overcook it. Overcooked bacon can be dry and not very tasty.
  • You can reduce the cooking time if you wish to have the eggs still be runny. I recommend five to ten minutes if you would like the yolk to be runny. However, you might want to check regularly to prevent it from overcooking.
