Preheat oven to 190°C. Lightly grease 6 standard muffin cups. With a rolling pin, flatten bread slices slightly and with a 4¼-inch cookie cutter, cut into 8 rounds. 

Cut each round in half, then press 2 halves into each muffin cup, overlapping slightly and making sure bread comes up to edge of cup. Use extra bread to patch any gaps. 

Brush bread with melted butter.

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat, for 4 minutes, until almost crisp, flipping once. (It will continue to cook in the oven.) 

Lay 1 bacon slice in each bread cup and crack an egg over each. Season with salt and pepper. 

Bake for 20–25 minutes, until egg whites are just set. 

Run a small knife around cups to loosen toasts.

Add a couple of micro herbs to the top of each cup and serve.
