Breakfast for Dinner in a Baking Cup

As a mom with a 17 month old toddler and an 8 year old that is a self-described chickentarian, dinner can be a battle of epic proportions. I swore to myself when I first had my daughter I would do everything right, including requiring that she ate what we ate.

That ended with a bombshell when she was moving from jar foods to real foods and refused, and I mean REFUSED, to eat anything that wasn't pureed and had zero spices-to include salt. My son, on the other hand, will eat just about everything you put in front of him and would take a steak over a cookie any day of the week.

You can imagine how much I scratch my head when it comes to feeding everyone. All that said, one thing this entire family can come together on is breakfast for dinner.

There is something fun, exciting, different about cooking breakfast foods where dinner should be! It just feels so right! We have plenty of nights where my husband whips up homemade waffles, hash browns, and toast. We do eggs, cereal, pancakes, and bacon! And you know with bacon, life is just about perfect.

So I wanted to give you a fun and great way to excite your family with a dinner meal that is easy, keeps everyone happy, AND made from the heart:

Biscuits, Bacon, and Egg Cups

Ingredients:

  • Biscuits
  • Bacon
  • Reynolds® StayBrite™ Baking cups
  • Eggs
  • Butter

Instructions

  1. First pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Prep your Reynolds® StayBrite™ Baking cups by either putting in a muffin tin, sitting directly on a cookie sheet, or adding to a silicon pan, which is what I did. (I wanted to test out the cute heart shaped baking pan I have with this recipe, so I added a baking cup to each well and pinched the top and bottom to shape the round baking cup into a heart.) Mainly because I am a mom and I am always looking for new ways to remind my family that I love them.
  3. Once your baking cups are set up where you want to use them, spread a little melted butter on the inside.
  4. Tear off a piece of uncooked biscuit and smash it in the bottom of your baking cup. I kept mine pretty thin to account for the rising.
  5. Fry up your bacon for about 4 minutes, making sure you flip both sides. It will continue baking in the oven, so it doesn't need to be overly crispy in this step. Once you have it cooked, I cut mine in half and put on the inside of the cups. If you prefer you can make it go all the way around or lay flat. I left two with no bacon. One for my daughter with just egg and biscuit and one with just biscuit- for the dog!
  6. Crack a small or medium egg into each cup on top of the bacon. I found that due to the size of my heart pan I needed a small cup or the egg whites spilled over. 7) Bake in oven for approximately 23-25 minutes until the eggs set.
