  7. Lay one bacon slice into each cup and sprinkle with a pinch of shredded cheese.

  8. Crack one egg into each cup and season with salt and pepper then bake until the egg whites are just set, about 20 to 25 minutes.

To ensure food safety, eggs should be cooked until both the yolk and the white are firm. Consuming raw or undercooked eggs may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially for those with certain medical conditions. For recipes that call for eggs that are raw or undercooked when the dish is served, use either pasteurized shell eggs that have been treated to destroy Salmonella, or use pasteurized egg products.
