INGREDIENTS:
2 tablespoons butter, melted
24 wonton squares
12 large eggs
12 slices bacon,cooked and chopped
12 tablespoons cheddar cheese, shredded
Salt & pepper

DIRECTIONS:
1. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
2. Brush the muffin cups with butter and line each with one wonton square. Brush the squares with more butter and place the second wonton on top of the first at an angle so that all of the points show.

3. Divide the bacon among the muffin cups. Break one egg into each muffin cup. Top with the cheddar and, sprinkle with a little salt and pepper.

4. Place in the top half of the oven for 20 - 25 minutes, or until the egg white is firm but yolk still liquid.

5. Remove from the oven and let sit 5 minutes before carefully removing the baskets from the tin. Arrange on a decorative platter and serve immediately.
