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!

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

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

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

  • 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.

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

I heeded the advice of the submitter. I added spinach, bell peppers, and a habanero pepper to the mix. Having added ingredients, I had to add extra eggs and added extra bacon, well, because: it's bacon. I changed up the method too. I cooked the bacon in a skillet then used the bacon grease to cook up the veggies, instead of using butter. The timing was about the same. The muffins were ready in 25 minutes. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Easy peasy. Add what you want to the recipe. My only concern was not enough eggs to make 12 muffin tins. Next time I ll add more veggies and see. Or just more eggs. Read More
