I love this because it's a quick and easy breakfast on-the-go consisting of 3 of my favorite breakfast foods combined: bacon, eggs, and cheese!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

  • Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned but not yet crispy, 7 to 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Line the walls of each muffin cup with a bacon strip.

  • Beat eggs with salt and pepper in a large bowl; ladle into muffin cups to about 3/4-full. Sprinkle cheddar cheese over the top of each portion.

  • Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on top and the egg doesn't jiggle, 20 to 35 minutes. Remove from oven and use a butter knife or spoon to remove from muffin tin promptly so that they don't stick.

Tips

Cook's Notes:

For quicker prep time you can skip pre-cooking the bacon. However, I have found that it reduces the amount of grease in the bowl, not too mention potential for grease spillage while cooking.

For fewer calories, use turkey bacon or reduced-fat varieties, reduced-fat cheeses, egg whites versus whole eggs.

For more of a western feel, add diced tomatoes with chilies and onions.

These freeze really well, so make a bunch and freeze them.

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. Read More

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. Read More
