Baked Eyeball Eggs
Add a gory Halloween effect to breakfast with this creamy baked bacon, eggs and potatoes “eyeballs” dish.
Prep Time 15 min Total Time 1 hr 20 min Servings 10
1 bag (30 oz) frozen shredded hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 can (10 3/4 oz) condensed cream of potato soup
1 container (8 oz) sour cream (about 1 cup)
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)
2 teaspoons dried minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
10 slices Canadian bacon (about 6 oz)
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, mix potatoes, soup, sour cream, cheese, onion, salt and pepper. Spoon mixture into ungreased 13×9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish, spreading evenly.
Arrange bacon slices in pairs over top of potato mixture to resemble eyes. Press bacon into mixture to form deep cups (for eggs). Bake 40 minutes.
Remove baking dish from oven. If necessary, press bacon into mixture to reshape cups. Carefully break 1 egg into each bacon cup.
Bake 20 to 25 minutes longer or just until eggs are set. Decorate eggs with ketchup “veins” to resemble bloodshot eyeballs.
The eggs bake up glossy and bright, making it tempting to overbake them, but resist the temptation. The egg whites should be set with yolks that have begun to thicken but are not hard.
