How to make the best breakfast tortilla cups
To make this recipe you start with the bacon. Preheat a skillet to cook the bacon. You do not need any baking product because there is enough fat in the bacon.
Do not brown the bacon until crunchy. The bacon will also bake when they are in the oven. Put the bacon on a paper towel to allow the excess fat to drain.
There are a number of ways make the tortilla cups:
- Half the tortillas – this method has no food waste. Cut the tortillas in half and fold them in the muffin tin
- Cut tortilla in rings -take a cooking ring and cut smaller rings from a burrito sized tortilla and push these into the muffin tray
The tortillas used in this recipe are medium size and if you half them they will easily fit in a muffin tin.
Before you make the tortilla cups use cooking spray in the muffin tin so the tortillas do not stick to the muffin tin.
Once the tortillas are in stuffed into the muffin tin add the bacon. Then crack the egg in the cups.
Preheat the oven to 400℉ before you put the muffin tin in the middle oven and bake for 17 to 20 minutes.
If you like your eggs a little runny start checking the oven from 15 minutes. If you like your eggs well done leave them in the oven for at least 20 minutes.
Take out of the oven and sprinkle with some paprika and chives. Your breakfast tortilla is ready to serve.
