Bacon-wrapped Eggs – an Easter egg with a difference

Bacon-wrapped Eggs – individual portions of pure happiness.

Bacon-wrapped Eggs

This is a cool way to serve eggs. The bacon wraps around the egg like flower petals as it cooks. You could also wait for the dish to cool, slip it out of the ramekin and eat it cold.

Time:  20 minutes
Serves: 2


  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 2 rashers bacon

  • 2 eggs

  • salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 tablespoon freshly snipped chives

Preheat the oven to 200ºC and butter the insides of two 150ml ramekins. Line the inside of each with a rasher of bacon and place in the oven for 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and crack an egg into each ramekin. Season with salt and pepper and return to the oven for 7-8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set.

Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh chives as you serve.

    Place a slice of Tomato on top of the Bacon before cooking for 5 minutes, then add egg and Tasty cheese to top before returning to oven.
