  • 8 strips bacon
  • 2 slices aged cheddar cheese
  • 4 eggs
  • Salt and pepper


  1. In frying pan, cook bacon until transparent. Transfer to paper-towel-lined plate. Cool slightly.
  2. Cut four 6-inch (15 cm) parchment rounds to fit standard-size muffin cups.
  3. Criss-cross 2 bacon strips in each of four parchment-lined muffin cups. Crumble cheese and divide evenly over bacon. Crack 1 egg into each cup. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Bake in 350°F (190°C) oven until bacon is crispy and egg white is cooked through; about 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let cool 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to plate and serve with toast and watercress. Remove parchment before eating.
