Bacon and Egg Cups with Leek and Gruyere Cheese

The other day I found dome Gruyere cheese n the back of the fridge, and got the idea to dress up bacon and egg cups. My mom use to make them all the time, but always plain. I can say now Gruyere is my new favorite cheese for eggs, they were amazing.


Bacon and Egg Cups with Leek and Gruyere Cheese


8 eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped leeks
1 cup shredded gruyere cheese
10 sliced of bacon, 2 slices cut in 4 pieces (these will be the bottom of the cup)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place one of the 1/4 pieces of bacon in the bottom of a muffin tin. Take another slice of bacon and line the cup. Add 1/2 tablespoon of chopped leek to the cup. Crack an egg in the cup. Add another 1/2 tablespoon of leek, salt and pepper and a pinch of guyere cheese that equals about 2 tablespoons on top. Repeat with the rest of the cups.

2. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until eggs are set.
