Easy breakfast baskets

Easy breakfast baskets that I made for my dad on gathers day. He s a bit of a health freak and ditests anything cooked in oil esp. his eggs and bacon. He loved them and ate 3 servings to himself. This receipe can also have variations where ou can scramble the eggs making it an omlette adding baked beans, or tomatoes, onions and greens like spring onion. Very simple and oil free.

  2. 1 dozen large eggs
  3. 1 kg shoulder bacon in strips
  4. 1/4 lb butter salted or unsalted
  5. 1 salt

  7. 1 can creamcorn (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 180°F celcius and greese large muffin trays well
  2. Butter sliced bread and slightly cut each side of the bread to allow a nice fit in the muffin tray
