Eggs in Bacon Hug

Ok,…I’m going to tell you something today…something I’m sure you don’t expect…Something extraordinary, …something scary,…something happy,…something new,…something I’m sure you don’t know yet…

I’m working on my first cooking book! Yes, you heard me!

It’s not like I know what I’m talking about but I am having SO MUCH fun writing it and trying to shoot decent- not flurry – not out of focus pictures that no matter if no one will buy it, I’ll still be happy and proud I actually got myself to write it!

The book is going to be bilingual (English and Chinese) and will be sold all over China and on as well!

I am soooo excited about this!

Now that I have share this little secret with you, we can move on with a new recipe!

Eggs in Bacon Hug! I made them for lunch last Sunday and I loved them!

Ingredients (serves 6):

  • 6 slices of bacon (cut very thin)
  • 5 whole big eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 200 ml (1 cup) heavy cream
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese

In a bowl combine eggs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper and chopped parsley

pour in the heavy cream

beat all the ingredients together with a fork

Cover the bottom and the borders of a muffin cup with one slice of bacon. Repeat with the others

Then pour the eggs mixture into the bacon cups

Bake at 180 C (375 F) for about 15 min or until the egg is cooked and the top got a nice brown color. Remove them from the muffin cups and serve them warm!

I think these are a great idea as finger food during a party or as a started for a dinner with friends!

And Happy Valentine’s day everybody!
