Breakfast In One Cup Recipe: a cracker for 2023


Breakfast in one is literally all those traditional and delicious breakfast recipe items oven-baked in a muffin tin at the same time

Breakfast in one
Well, I say that does not look too bad at all…

You will need some muffin or pie tins for this. I used pie tins and just smeared some butter inside to make them double non-stick for when I needed to get the breakfast thing out of the tins when cooked. A new recipe idea from The Semi-Naked Chef, Breakfast In One. Nice. A little play on the ones I did earlier from a KF Seetoh post, but I like these ones better.

I have added a few things and changed some of the order of prep. Do you think these look better? I did two of these, one for me and one for Ollie. So once you have buttered the pie tins stand them to one side.

You will need:

  • 4 slices white bread with the crusts cut off,
  • 2 eggs,
  • 4 slices of good quality cheddar cheese,
  • 3 slices of streaky bacon cut into 3″ strips (strips the length of your pie tin),
  • 2 tablespoons of freshly grated parmesan (or packet if you’re feeling lazy),
  • 2 teaspoons of finely chopped garlic,
  • Worcestershire sauce,
  • Smoked paprika,
  • Seasoning sauce (it’s a Filipino sauce, a little like fish sauce for Thai‘s – if you can’t get it really does not matter),
  • Sea salt and cracked black Kampot pepper, and
  • Olive oil.

Once de-crusted, roll the bread to very thin with a rolling pin. Then sort of lay (almost pastry-like) two slices into each pie tin and sort of squeeze the slices together to form a seal. Drizzle the bread with some olive oil. Then in go layers in this order, in equal portions into each tin of course;

  1. Lay the bacon strips down,
  2. Spread a teaspoon of finely chopped garlic,
  3. Lay two slices of cheddar cheese,
  4. Sprinkle the finely grated parmesan,
  5. Crack in the egg,
  6. Dust with smoked paprika,
  7. Add a couple of drops over the top of seasoning sauce and Worcestershire sauce,
  8. And, give a good pinch all over of cracked black Kampot pepper and salt.


Pop in an oven at 200 degrees for about 15-20 minutes until the egg is set. Uncannily that will also mean the bacon is cooked the cheese has melted and as you can see the bread has toasted.

Carefully lift them out from the tins and serve. If this was all restaurant-like. I’d serve this with a little rocket salad and some Yuzu dressing (Japanese citrus fruit – you can buy the juice in supermarkets now). 3 tablespoons of Yuzu, 2 tablespoons Olive oil, a good pinch of salt and pepper – mix well and drizzle on over.
