Ingredients: (makes 4 servings)

:: 4 slices white or whole-wheat sandwich bread
:: 1 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
:: 4 slices bacon
:: 4 eggs
:: grated cheese that melts
:: green tabasco
:: salt and ground pepper



1) Preheat oven to 250 degrees. Cover 4 muffin cups with parchment cooking paper and butter it lightly.  Remove each toast’s crust with a knife, press them slightly to be a little flat and cut them in half. Then press the 2 halves into each muffin cup, make sure that they overlap slightly. Use some extra bread to patch any gaps. Brush bread with the remaining butter.

2) In a skillet, cook bacon over medium fire for 5’, until it’s almost crispy, . Remember that it will continue to cook in the oven.  Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup  -it’s ok for the edges to be hanging outside of the bread cup-  and crack an egg over each cup. Season with salt, pepper and grated cheese.  Add 1-2 drops of green tabasco on each bread toast as long as you like them chilly hot.

3) Bake until egg whites are just set, 20’-25’minutes.  Serve immediately, while they are hot and delicious.
