  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Spray six 6-oz. custard cups or ramekins with nonstick cooking spray. Place cups in ungreased shallow baking pan.

  • 3 Break 1 egg into each cup. Top each with 1 teaspoon half-and-half. Sprinkle each with dash salt and pepper.
  • 4 Bake at 325°F. for 22 to 25 minutes or until egg yolks are thoroughly cooked.

In small cup or bowl, beat egg yolks. Slowly blend small amount of hot liquid into egg yolks. Return yolk mixture to saucepan; cook and stir over low heat just until thickened. Remove from heat. Stir in lemon juice. To keep warm, set saucepan in larger pan of hot water.
  • 6 To serve, place muffin halves on serving plates. Carefully slide bacon-egg cup onto each muffin half. Top each with scant 2 tablespoons sauce.
