Bacon Egg Cups

This was one of many recipes that I've found and pinned on Pinterest. I've been looking for some new breakfast ideas, especially since we're trying to eat together. Sweet Pea really liked this one, Rosie Jane said it was ok. I thought it was really good. Mine sure didn't turn out as nice as the ones in the original picture, but they tasted good.

Bacon Egg Cups
makes 12

12 slices of bacon
8 eggs
1/2 c shredded sharp cheddar cheese
pinch of salt and 1/4 tsp pepper

Preheat the oven to 350*. Cook the bacon about "halfway," it should still be soft, just starting to crisp up. Whisk the rest of the ingredients together. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. Wrap each piece of bacon around the inside of a muffin cup. Don't worry if the bacon falls in on itself. Fill about 3/4 full with the egg mixture. Bake 30-35 minutes, until the eggs are golden brown and don't jiggle. Run a knife around the muffin cup to get them out. Serve immediately.

You can also add a splash of milk to the eggs. They turn out fluffy that way.


  1. oh my gosh, this sounds amazing! i made something similar using won ton wrappers, eggs, roasted red pepper and prosciutto. the eggs are runny in mine, so i can't make them for my blog anytime soon since pregnant chicks have to have well done eggs, dangit! lol. will have to try this one soon :)

  2. Yes please! I need to get wifey on this asap!
