Bacon, Egg, Cheese Breakfast Cups

While visiting the blog about a month ago I found this great recipe.  Last weekend I finally got time to make it.  It is one of the best things I have eaten in a long time and I plan to make this again and again.

 Items Needed
Crescent Roles
Optional Items
Green Peppers
Red Peppers
 Take the Crescent Rolls and put them into a cupcake tin.  I have a large family so I did 2 packages of roles it took 1 and a half to fill my tin.  I then cooked eggs, onions, green peppers, red peppers in a pan on the stove.  Do not cook them completely you will want them some runny.
 I precooked in microwave some bacon and crumbled it up.
 put the runny eggs in the cupcake tin on top of rolls that are put into tin first.
 cover with bacon and cheese
 cook for about 15 minutes on 350 when done the edges of the rolls should be brown and cheese melted.
At this point use a knife to run around the edges of the cup and then pull out.  For me take 2 wonderful pictures of them as the kids behind you almost knock you down trying to get to them and eat them. With 5 of us in the family only 1 got left over (that means they went over well)  The family loved them and we will make them again.  Again you can find the original link by clicking the link above or
