As well as being simple and quick to make, these cups are so versatile!  Because they’re made in a muffin tin, each cup can be tailored to what each person likes to eat.  This is especially great if you have kids who only want eggs and cheese, or one who hates tomatoes…or if you’re like me you can load yours up with goodies like spinach and mushrooms.  My word.  Perfect.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Cups


  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 6 - 8 servings 1x

Description

This recipe makes approximately 6-8 cups. Basically, it’s one egg per person. Although, I will say, you are going to want 2 cups per adult, at least. They’re that good.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 in package of bacon, cooked, then cut half
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 2 green onions

Optional Ingredients:

  • chopped tomatoes
  • chopped mushrooms
  • chopped Swiss chard or spinach
  • chopped bell pepper
  • chopped cooked ham

Instructions

  1. First cook your bacon.
  2. Then cut your bacon in half, and line a muffin cup with 3-4 half pieces. The more bacon you use, the easier the egg cup will slip out of the muffin tin.
  3. Set your oven to 350 degrees.
  4. In a bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and cheese.
  5. Then add and stir in the onions and what ever other additions you would like in your cups, to the egg mixture. Have fun with this part and make different ones for everyone!
  6. Pour the egg mixture evenly between the 6-8 cups you are making. The egg mixture should be just below the top of the muffin tin.
  7. Bake for 25-35 minutes. It may take longer depending on how many optional ingredients you have added.
  8. Enjoy!

    Hi!

    This looks fabulous. Just wondering, my little brother is under going chemotherapy so I’ve been searching for “meals” that can be made in batches and those that can be frozen for quick grab and go for him (breakfast as we know is a must for everyone, anyway). Thanks so much!

    Can I line the muffin pan with Phyllo cups? If so, should I pre-bake the phyllo?

      Hi Kathryn! I’m sure you can, I’ve just never tried. I think your best bet for success would be to search for a recipe that includes the phyllo as an ingredient.
