Mother's Day Sunrise Breakfast Bowls

Recipe For A Simple Breakfast

Recipe For A Simple Breakfast

It’s true.  My Sunrise Breakfast Bowl recipe requires only one muffin pan.  There are no spoons, bowls, spatulas or skillets to clean which makes this the perfect breakfast recipe for kids to make.

Kids are proud to make breakfast, but tiny hands are not well suited for frying, flipping or boiling.

My girls love to cook and could crack an egg before they were out of diapers, so they’re able to make this easy recipe almost completely on their own with just a little help getting the muffin tin in and out of the oven.

Sunrise Breakfast Bowls


  1. Whole grain bread- 12 slices with crust taken off
  2. Eggs- 1 dozen
  3. Bacon- 1 package precooked bacon
  4. Butter



  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees


2.  Grease a muffin tin with butter and place one slice of bread into each hole pressing down in the middle.

Precooked Bacon

4.  Heat bacon in the microwave according to directions (about 1 minute) and place one cooked slice into each egg

Yes, I use the precooked bacon and am proud of it.  I love cooking with- and eating- bacon but hate bacon grease… what a lovely invention, this precooked stuff.  Let someone else clean the grease!

5.  Bake until egg is just cooked, or until desired consistency- yolk runny, about 10 minutes; slightly runny, about 13 minutes and cooked thoroughly, about 17 minutes

    I saw this on The SITS website and I am so excited to make this for my family tomorrow and have my 9 & 7 years help me. It looks so yummy that I have been dreaming of them since your post went up!

    I just made these this morning! My husband was so surprised because I never make breakfast, but they were so easy and delicious! Perfect for Valentine’s Weekend Breakfast (:

    These can be made with Udi’s gluten-free bread (thawed). It takes a little more work to get them to stay in the pan compared to regular bread, but the recipe turned out perfectly.

      Oh, and the recipe works great for single serving portions as well!

      Thanks Gwendolyn for sharing that- we have a lot of gluten-free readers! Toni

    I made this today for father’s day breakfast and he loved it! He loved how easily the egg stayed in the bread and the hint of bacon on the side. Great easy recipe i made with my 13 month daughter. No stress; no mess.
