I found this on a list of Betty Crocker Best of 2011 recipes. Sounds like a winner for New Year’s Day breakfast or any Sunday morning!
- 1 lb bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
- 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped (3/4 cup)
- 1 package (8 oz) sliced fresh mushrooms
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3/4 cup milk
- 12 eggs
- 1 package (2 lb) frozen hash browns, thawed
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (16 oz)
- In 12-inch skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Using slotted spoon. Remove from pan to small bowl. Cover and refrigerate. Drain drippings, reserving 1 tablespoon in pan. Add onion, bell pepper and mushrooms; cook 4 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Stir in mustard, salt and pepper. In large bowl, beat milk and eggs with wire whisk.
- Spray 13×9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray. Spread half of hash browns in baking dish. Spread onion mixture evenly on top. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese. Spread remaining hash browns over top. Pour egg mixture on top. Cover; refrigerate 8 hours or overnight.
- Heat oven to 325°F. Uncover; bake 50 to 60 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese and the bacon. Bake 3 to 5 minutes longer or until knife inserted in center comes out clean, top is puffed and cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes.

Just in time for Sunday breakfast… I saw a recipe in Everyday Food for Bacon, Egg & Toast Cups that looked so yummy and easy. Since it is in the latest issue, I couldn’t find the recipe on their site. After a visit to my friend Google, I found several websites that have the same or a similar recipe. So here you go!
4 slices of bacon
4 slices of bread
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I prefer cheddar)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 400° F. Grease 4 wells of a muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a frying pan, cook bacon about 3-5 minutes, until partially cooked but not completely crispy. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Cut out rounds of bread with a round cookie cutter or drinking glass. Press the bread rounds into the greased muffin wells. Curl a piece of bacon around each piece of bread, positioning it between the bread and the muffin tin to help keep it in position. Sprinkle a small amount of shredded cheese on top of each piece of bread. One at a time, crack an egg, removing about half of the white, and dropping the remaining white and yolk over each piece of bread, being careful not to break the yolks.
Bake until eggs are cooked through to your liking (about 10-12 minutes) and bacon is crispy. Run a knife around the edge of each muffin well and pop the egg cups out. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve immediately.
