Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Generously grease custard cups, muffin cups, or small ramekins.
Arrange bacon slices on a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes (depending on thickness of bacon) or until the bacon browns very slightly without becoming crisp or burned. Remove from oven and pat off excess grease with a paper towel. While the bacon is still hot (if the cooked bacon is allowed to cool, it will harden and become unmanageable), wrap the inside of each greased cup with bacon slices.
Learn how to make Baked (Shirred) Eggs. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F. Into a small dish, break one egg at a time; pour into prepared bacon-lined cup. Repeat with all eggs. Dot each cup with 1/2 teaspoon butter.
Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until whites are completely set and yolks begin to thicken but are not hard. Remove from oven and very gently unmold eggs onto individual serving plates. Season with salt and pepper and serve hot.
Makes 8 servings.
