Lazy Brunch Recipe

One of my favourite things about having time off from work is being able to get into the kitchen. I'm a big fan of brunch/large breakfasts but our weekends are often taken up with errands and we're often much too lazy to cook anything ourselves that is going to create tons of washing up.

Enter: the laziest brunch ever or possibly the first time any one successfully made anything they saw on pinterest.

I've seen these in my feed a few times (although apparently I forgot to pin them every time so have no record of where they came from). While the idea isn't exactly new, I was just so impressed this I had to share it. Made up of lovely buttery toast, crispy bacon and delicious runny baked eggs, they are everything you need for a cosy holiday breakfast with your loved ones. I think they look so much neater and cuter than serving up a full english would be so they'd be perfect if you have guests over, plus they only take about 5 minutes to put together and there's no awkwardly trying to balance timings/five different frying pans. I honestly can't believe it took me so long to finally try these out but I definitely think we'll be eating them a lot more in future.

Lazy Brunch Bacon and Eggs Recipe

(Makes 6 cups)6 slices of bread (lightly toasted)
6 rashers of cooked bacon
6 eggs
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp of basil 

Lightly grease a muffin tin with butter. Use a large cookie cutter to cut out circles of toast slightly larger than the tin and press a circle of bread into each whole, pushing it to the bottom and against the sides.

Next is the fiddly bit, wrap a rasher of bacon around the sides of the tin, pressing it against the bread. Try and start with the flattest side of the bacon against the base of the tin and then tuck it in as best you can until it roughly holds its shape. Crack an egg into the hole in the middle, sprinkle with pepper, basil and any other seasonings you would like, then bake at 190c for 15-20 minutes.

  3. This looks so nice! It reminds me of something I saw on another blog not long ago, it was an avocado with an egg baked inside it. Delicious!

  4. Haha, I was surprised how good they were to be honest, we're all a bit obsessed at the moment! :) x

  5. That was my thought exactly, so much easier than trying to balance everything to be ready at the same time and so little mess! I'll never distrust pinterest again haha :)

  6. Oooh, I've still not tried avocado so I can't tell how that would be but baked eggs are great so I'm guessing delicious! You could easily leave out the bacon for veggie friends or swap the outside to anything else you prefer :)

  7. These look fabulous!!! A cofee shop near my work sells these, but it never occurred to me to actually try and make them at home. I might just do that this wkend now :)

  8. These look gorgeous! Anything with bacon is a win for me haha and love how easy they are to make aswell. You've made me so hungry haha
