How To Make Bacon and Egg Muffin Cups

  1. Prepare for baking: Preheat the oven to 350°F, and spray a muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray. Set aside while preparing the remaining ingredients.
  2. Assemble the egg mixture: If you haven’t already, cook, cool, and crumble your bacon. While the bacon cooks, whisk together the eggs, salt and pepper. Add the bacon, cheese, and onions to the bowl with the eggs, salt, pepper. Whisk until the mixture is evenly combined.
  3. Bake and serve: Evenly distribute the egg mixture amongst the 12 muffin cups and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the egg muffins are set in the middle. Let them cool for 5-10 minutes before using a knife to run around the edges to gently remove. Serve warm or store for later.

Recipe Tips

  1. You can use precooked bacon to save time. Make sure it’s crumbled into small pieces.
  2. Whisk the eggs first to ensure they are combined properly and no white or clear spots remain.
  3. Distribute the egg mixer using a measuring cup with a spout in order to create less cleanup.
  4. If you want a firmer egg muffin, increase the baking time by a few minutes.
  5. Make sure you let the egg muffins cool before removing as removing them too soon could cause them to stick.

Variations

  • Add your favorite vegetables to the egg mixture including, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, spinach, bell peppers, broccoli.
  • Use your favorite seasoning blends such as Italian seasoning, Cajun seasoning, or even Ranch dressing mix.
  • Try using a different type of cheese such as cheddar, blue cheese, or feta cheese to add a salty cheesy flavor.
  • Spice it up by adding a pinch of cayenne pepper to the egg mixture or adding diced jalapenos.

What if I don’t have Gruyere cheese?

Any shredded cheese will work in this recipe, but we recommend using a flavorful variety such as pepper jack, cheddar, or gouda.

Why are my egg muffins rubbery?

If your egg muffins are rubbery, it may be because they were overcooked. Make sure to check them regularly at the 15-minute mark and remove them from the oven when they are set in the middle.

Do I have to use green onions?

No, you can omit the green onions if desired. However, they add a nice flavor and freshness to the recipe.
