Baked Eggs Wrapped in Bacon

Alright! Today isn't much of a recipe but a simple idea to prepare something different for breakfast. Eggs are a quintessential part of a Continental Hot Breakfast and can be presented in different ways. It could be scrambled, fried or poached and served just by itself with toast or together with bacon, sausages, spinach and mushrooms to make a Big Breakfast.

I am not really going big today. And no recipes today either. It is just a presentation of baked eggs wrapped in bacon served with garlic mushrooms and store-bought hash-browns. A simple, yet delicious way to whip up an easy breakfast that your family will enjoy on a Saturday morning. A dash of salt and pepper and what more could they want?

To prepare these eggs, line muffin holes with smoked ham or bacon, on the bottom and the sides. Place a few wilted spinach leaves on this. Then gently crack an egg into each muffin hole. Season with salt and pepper. Bake in a pre-heated fan forced oven at 160° C for 16 to 18 minutes or until the egg-whites are just set but the egg yolk is still runny. Remove from oven and stand for 2 minutes. Run a silicon knife around the sides of the bacon/ ham and gently remove from muffin hole using a silicon spatula.

Serve hot with garlic mushrooms and hash-browns (store-bought) with a sprinkle of parsley leaves.
