Bacon and Egg Muffins


This is a great base recipe for a quick breakfast. Customize to your taste with jalapenos, diced green chiles, bell peppers, turkey bacon, a half-egg-white-and-half-whole-egg blend, or avocado, to name a few ideas, just as you would season an omelet!

1 dozen


  • cooking spray

  • 6 slices center-cut bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces

  • 1 teaspoon butter

  • 3 tablespoons diced onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced, or to taste

  • 6 eggs

  • 1 pinch garlic powder

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 3 tablespoons shredded Cheddar cheese, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a muffin tin with cooking spray.

  2. Place bacon on a microwave-safe plate; cook in the microwave until slightly browned but still pliable, 2 to 3 minutes.

  3. Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook and stir until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes.

  4. Whisk eggs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Stir in onion and garlic mixture.

  5. Sprinkle a few pieces of bacon in the bottom of each muffin cup. Cover with half of the egg mixture. Add a few more pieces of bacon; top with remaining egg mixture.

  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top.
