Bacon Egg Muffin Cups

Share this Recipe!

Simple, yet delicious, these Bacon Egg Muffins Cups are like breakfast all in one bite. The best part is that you can flavor them differently each time.

Want spicy ones? Drizzle some Sriracha on top of the shredded cheese.

Want Italian? Use Italian herbs on top and even sprinkle some over the cheese before cracking the egg.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless!

Seriously, is there anything cuter, more delicious or fun for a quick breakfast? Bacon Egg Muffin Cups cover all the breakfast foods.

This recipe has quickly climbed the ranks both by my family and by my readers as a favorite recipe.

How can it not be though, I mean come on, cute little Bacon Egg Muffin Cups are a complete breakfast all in one.

And they taste amazing!

That made my job much easier and so we decided to go with this one. When we first made it, I was surprised by  how simple it was.

From start to finish, we’re talking about twenty minutes, and that’s perfect for breakfast.

How can you resist those cute little bacon egg muffin cups?

I love the little bacon cups, with the toast bottoms and the eggs are made better with the cheese and a little herbs and seasoning.

Seriously these Bacon Egg Muffin Cups are one of our favorite breakfast items ever. We make them all the time now.

The process is actually really simple.

Fill the bottom with a cut piece of bread. Smash it down in there and make it kind of fit to the muffin pan. Top with sprinkled cheese.

Bacon Egg Muffin Cups Cheese

Take your semi-cooked and slightly cooled bacon and literally create a cup with it. Tap it down so it touches the bread. The cheese will help hold everything together as it melts.

Next you’re just going to crack an egg on top, and then top with herbs, spices and whatever else you’d like. I did not take a photo of this step because nobody wants to look at a raw egg. Here’s the recipe so you can make your own.

They are a HUGE hit at slumber parties!

How to Make these Bacon Egg Muffin Cups Your Own

As you can see, we sprinkled some seasoning on the top of the Bacon Egg Muffin Cups for some extra flavor, but you can do whatever you want.

You could also add it to the shredded cheese layer if you want.

We also sprinkled a tiny bit of garlic powder on top of the bread before we sprinkled the cheese (like garlic bread) for added flavor.

The ideas are limitless.

Curious: Have you ever used a muffin pan to make something other than muffins? Tell me about it in the comments below.
I also made Cheesy Chicken Tortilla Cups in a muffin pan also… And we have these incredible Bacon, Egg and Sausage Breakfast Cups too.

I am highly addicted to things that can be made in a muffin tin, obviously.

Servings 12 Breakfast Cups


  • 6 slices of bread
  • 12 eggs
  • 12 slices of bacon
  • shredded cheese


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Heat a skillet on medium-high heat, cook the bacon and only allow it to cook for about 4-5 minutes. You are looking for flexible but not raw. While the bacon is cooking, cut two circles out of each slice of bread. I used a circle cookie cutter to make it easier.
  • Now take that extra bread and either save it for [french toast casserole|] or go tear it apart and feed it to the birds {what we did}.
  • Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray. Next, lay a circle of bread into the bottom of each muffin cup. Wrap the bacon around the edge of each muffin cup. (I did this part backwards – we did the cheese before the bacon – it made absolutely no difference) Sprinkle cheese on top of the bread slices.
  • Now carefully, crack an egg into each cup. Megan suggested cracking the egg carefully into a bowl first and then sliding it into the muffin cup. I just did it right into the pan.
  • Bake them for 10-15 minutes or until the whites have set and the yolk is cooked to your liking (less for a runny yolk, more for a cooked yolk)
  • Serve with pancakes and fresh fruit – well, we did. And by the way, you cannot eat just one. I don’t care what anyone says, you can’t. It’s impossible.

I tried this recipe 2 ways: 1: The original recipe with 1 substitution(I substituted the bread for rounds cut out from a gluten free, carb smart tortilla) bc I follow a low-carb, gluten free diet. 2. I used the same carb-smart tortilla for the bottom layer, then added a small amount of corned beef hash before adding the shredded cheese and the egg. Both turned out PERFECT and SO yummy! And were a huge hit with my picky kiddo! I will definitely make these again. I'm also going to tweak the recipe and create Monte Christo Muffin Cups...wish me luck!

I've used the muffin tin to make Pancakes.

Make up your favorite pancake batter. Grease the tins as normal (I personally use coconut oil). Fill each tin about 1/3 to 1/2 full of batter depending on how thick you want each pancake. Cook for about 20 minutes at 375 (you may need to adjust time and temperature based on your oven). There's also less mess to clean up afterwards which is a definite plus.
