bacon and egg breakfast cups

I had seen pictures of these bacon and egg "muffins" floating around the internet for a few months now and have always wanted to try them. So a few weekends ago, I decided to pull up a recipe and give them a go. They were ok, but there were a few things I didn't like, so I tweaked the recipe and tried again. 

My second attempt was pretty awesome. I'm a big fan of breakfast foods - whether eaten at actual breakfast time or some other time of the day (yep, "breakfast for dinner" is a regular thing in our kitchen!) so here's my take on bacon and egg breakfast cups!

the winter classic

So, while many of my friends were nursing hangovers on January 1, I was up at 5 am, driving from Windsor to Ann Arbor in order to freeze my buns off sitting on metal bleachers for the entire day. Why, you may ask?

The Winter Classic is (according to Wikipedia): " event held by the National Hockey League (NHL) on or around New Year's Day in which a regular-season hockey game is played outdoors, in an area with a resident NHL team."

That sounds pretty tame, right?
