Bacon Flowers

These are going to be wonderful to serve for Easter Brunch. The newsletter was devoted to breakfast this month, and while these did not make it in, they should have. I just ran out of hours to fit it all in!

These tantalizing little bites taste incredible. They are a little more work than the usual breakfast cups, but the eye appeal is all there. The secret is the turkey bacon. I have never been too impressed with it personally, but I am pretty sure it is crucial to the success of this recipe. It doesn't shrink and curl, or put out too much grease. That is key. Even better, it leaves these cute--even though, preformed--little scalloped edges that look like flower petals. I didn't even have to try! Also, I precooked the egg mixture a bit so it wouldn't just run under the bacon. That is important too.

I got a phone call and just about burned mine, so watch them closely. I am not completely sure about the oven time since I was talking, and had not yet set a timer. Oh well, that is real life! I know the hubby is going to be jealous over this one. He was out the door this morning before I had a chance to try them. I sent him off with a Strawberry Cheesecake shake. I will have to hide a few flowers for him before the guys and I gobble them all up. They taste great at room temperature too, and would be fantastic appetizers for a party. I will do these again.

These look tasty. I think some spinach or sundried tomatoes in the eggs would be a good addition.

I am ordering some sun dried tomatoes tonight as a matter of fact.
