Your favorite breakfast casserole or omelet in egg muffin form! Great for on-the-go breakfasts and very customizable to your own tastes. You can substitute any vegetables or meat that you like. I love to make a dozen of these and have them in my fridge to take on the go in the mornings to work.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 12-cup muffin tin.

  • Place green onions and bell peppers into a large mixing bowl. Add eggs, bacon, milk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese into the bowl and whisk ingredients together until incorporated.

  • Pour mixture equally into the prepared muffin cups.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

Cook's Notes:

You can use any shredded cheese you like.

Feel free to cook and chop your own bacon instead of using pre-cooked.

Made it as written. These were not only good hot out of the oven, but I tossed the rest in a bag and popped them in the freezer. They warm up nicely in a microwave, just be sure not to overcook them. Read More

Substituted cheddar cheese with mozzarella & grated Parmesan & used spinach instead of red & green peppers. Tastes so good & it's super easy to make. I'm going to make this again for sure. Read More

I baked some of it just as it was and to the rest I added hash browns. My husband and daughter loved them and, God willing, I will make them again. The pic is of the leftovers. 6 left out of seventeen made. I served them with buttered Walmart sliders halved and browned in the air fryer and fruits. Read More

I have made a version of these for many years. Called them our “Grab N Go” Breakfast. Very Tasty. Also Made a version with hash browns as the base. I will definitely try this version. So I can rate it properly. For now a 4 as I know how good mine are. Thank You for Sharing. Read More

For my granddaughter I made these using only egg, fried bacon, and cheese because I knew she wouldn’t like the other ingredients (although I plan to make some for myself, following the recipe.) WOW! She loved them (middle schooler); and it occurred to me how great these would be for kids AND adults on the run. I put leftovers in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator. They rewarm in the microwave wonderfully. Think is a keeper. Read More

I'm so glad I found this recipe. I impulsively decided to make egg muffins for the work week with what I had on hand. This is a very adaptable recipe. I had eggs, spinach, dried onions, (dont jugde LOL) left over butter milk from baking and parmesan cheese. I added 1TB Mrs Dash, salt and fresh ground pepper. I followed the measurements with my substitutes. They turned out perfect, and tastey. I sure if you made it to your tastes you will very happy with it. Read More
