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.

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.

Who wants to make Bacon Egg Muffin Cups?
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.
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.

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