How to make

  • Preheat oven to 410 degrees F
  • Line a large sheet pan with foil (to prevent sticking).
  • Place bacon in a single layer on pan and bake until bacon is crisp, flipping halfway through cooking, about 12 minutes total (depending on the thickness of the bacon). Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and allow to cool.
  • While bacon is cooking, use a 3-inch biscuit cutter (or the top of a small jar or drinking glass) to cut a circle in each slice of bread
  • Drain off as much bacon fat from the sheet pan as possible. Place the bread in a single layer on the pan. Place a small piece of butter in the circle in each slice of bread. Bake for 5 minutes and then flip the bread slices.
  • Crack eggs into the circles.
  • Return to oven and bake until egg whites have set but the yolks are still soft, 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Top eggs with crumbled bacon and chives. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
