  6. 5. Whisk up 3 eggs in a bowl and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  7. 6. Grate the Godminster cheese and add to the eggs.
  8. 7. Pour the egg and cheese mix into the bread cups, dividing the mixture evenly.
  9. To make 4 bacon muffins:
  10. 2. Crosshatch the rashers of bacon in the cups of the muffin tin to create cases for the eggs, cutting the bacon to size as you go.
