  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. Line the walls of each muffin cup with a bacon strip.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.


  • 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 pot...

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 ...

That’s my pic you stole from a few years back. I’ve made my own version with tea biscuits as shone. Post your own pic!!!!

I make these for my grandkids when they visit me for a weekend, it's always a big hit, because you can add whatever they like to it!
