Baked Hard-cooked Eggs with Citrus

This is one of our favorite breakfasts but could be adapted to dinner as well.
Hard-cook 3 eggs and remove the shells. Slice them thinly; we have a device for this purpose. Set the eggs aside. Melt 3T butter in a small mixing bowl. Add 1/2C bread crumbs and mix until the breadcrumbs are coated. Divide the breadcrumb mixture between two oven proof ramikins, spread over the bottom and press to form a crust. Set aside. In a bowl, mix 8oz. sour cream, 1T paprika, 3 strips of cooked crumbled bacon, 1t tarragon ( thyme, dill or your favorite herb), salt and pepper to taste. Spread the egg slices on top of the breadcrumbs and cover with the sour cream mixture. Top with gratted chedder cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 min.
The orange slices are topped with cinnamon. A green salad would be good for the dinner version.
