  • 12 slices of bacon
  • 8 eggs, beaten
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup (55 g) shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:30min ›Ready in:45min

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Grease a 12-hole muffin tin.
  2. Cook bacon in a large pan over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned but not yet crispy, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on kitchen paper.
  3. Line each muffin hole with a slice of bacon.
  4. Beat eggs with salt and pepper in a large bowl; ladle into muffin holes to about 3/4-full. Sprinkle cheese over the top of each portion.

I made these by method as written by cooking the bacon first. I used parmigiano reggiano due to not having cheddar available to me. Once out of the oven I served them on a "nest" of mashed potatoes patties. Mine didn't come out as pretty as the photo but were delicious. Thank you SammyLamb for the nice idea.-25 Oct 2014

This is a nice recipe but it needs some tweaks. I did not add any salt or pepper to the egg, it gets enough salt from the bacon and cheese! Added a little pepper and a dash of milk. Keep an eye on the oven, I think the cooking time is too long personally. Other than that it's pretty tasty.-31 Mar 2014

The inspiration for these bacon egg and cheese breakfast cups comes from Starbuck's sous vide egg bites. Have you tried them? They're wonderfully creamy and so delicious. The Starbuck's version uses a cooking process called sous vide, which essentially means that the food is placed in an airtight container and cooked in temperature-controlled water. It uses special equipment for the best results. That's all very well and good, but the beauty of this recipe is that you can get great results using simple equipment and your oven.

    The kids love these because they are so darn cute. Sometimes all you have to do is put the same food in a different wrapping paper and you get a renewed interest. They pick off the chives (they are green after all) and I add grated cheddar to the tops of theirs.

    You could also scramble the eggs a bit and mix in veggies but then it becomes more of a quiche and loses that pretty yellow yoke. After all, we eat first with our eyes!

    These muffin pan Bacon and Egg Cups would be perfect for a Mother's Day Brunch or breakfast in bed. Hint, hint kiddos.

    There are many variations out there, some with bread on the bottom and veggies mixed in but I kept mine straight up. Feel free to adjust them so they are more appealing to your bunch.

    I cook the bacon for about 8 minutes first then put it in the muffin pan. You don't want it to be completely cooked so that it can crisp up in the oven.

    Things To Grab


    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cross 2 pieces of bacon and place in each muffin cup, extending edges over muffin cups. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until bacon is crisp. Remove from oven. Dab cups with paper towels to remove excess fat.

    Meanwhile, heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add frozen hash browns and fajita vegetables. Cook for 5 to 7 minutes or until potatoes begin to brown and vegetables are softened, stirring occasionally. Set aside.

    Lightly beat eggs in a medium bowl. Season with salt and black pepper.

    Top bacon in muffin cups with hash brown mixture. Spoon egg mixture. Spoon egg mixture into each cup, filling three-fourths full. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes or until eggs are almost set. Remove from oven and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 2 to 3 minutes more or until cheese is melted and eggs are set. Garnish with fresh chives, if desired.
