Oh goodness, friends. Do I have a treat for you! These bacon egg cups come together so easily and are just as perfect to make for serving a group as they are to make for two people! But, I even like to make large batches of these to reheat for busy mornings.

The flavor of the smokey flavor from the bacon mingled with the parmesan cheese and the creaminess of the egg are just a mighty delicious combination that we absolutely love! And that freshness from the green onion just takes them over the top!

My recipe below makes is for six bacon egg cups, but you can scale this recipe to the number that you need from one to infinity!

Here’s how I make them.

I cook my bacon for about 5 minutes or so and then arrange the bacon slices around the edges of the indentions in a muffin pan. This way, your bacon and eggs will be cooked to just the right amount once you add your eggs to the muffin pan. Also, this allows for a lot of the bacon drippings to render so that they are not part of your finished bacon egg cups.

Then, you crack an egg into egg bacon wrapped indention in the muffin pan.

Repeat until all are filled. Then, top with Parmesan cheese and bake to your preferred consistency for your eggs. About 13 minutes is similar to a soft-boiled egg (a little runny) and 15 minutes or more will yield a hard-boiled egg consistency. If I am making them to reheat again for a later meal, I will stop at 13 minutes so that they are not overcooked when I reheat them.

Once they’ve baked, I remove them from the muffin pan using a silicon spoon and top them with salt, pepper, and the chopped green onions.

Ingredients:

  • 6 slices, thick cut bacon
  • 6 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Cook bacon over medium heat for 5-8 minutes. Remove the bacon before it is fully cooked and dry on a paper-towel lined plate.
  3. Arrange each slice of bacon around the edge of each muffin cup, creating a circle around the edge.
  4. Crack one egg into each bacon wrapped muffin cup and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Bake 13 – 16 minutes, based on your preference for the egg consistency. At 13 minutes, the egg yolk will be more soft-boiled and at 16 minutes, more hard-boiled consistency.
  5. Remove each cup from muffin pan with a spoon and serve with a sprinkle of salt, pepper, and the green onions.

Notes:

Recipe can be scaled up or down to the number of bacon egg cups needed.

Make-Ahead:
If making ahead to reheat later, bake for 13 minutes, do not top with green onions, allow to cool and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or the freezer for up to a month. When ready to serve, heat, top with green onions and serve.

  1. Looking for Sand Dollars

  2. That looks AMAZING! I’ve got only one question thought…how do you clean up those muffin tins after??? I wanted to die last time I tried something similar. BTW I have 2 boys and your recipes are always a hit with them, thank you, thank you, thank you, you make my life so much easier 🙂

    • Hey Melanie,
      I spray my muffin pan well with nonstick olive oil spray or with my olive oil spritzer. I think the trick may be to make sure that the eggs rest just a minute or so before you try to remove them from the pan. Then, I use a silicon spatula to remove them and there isn’t anything left behind.

      I’m so glad your boys love the recipes! There is just nothing better than making something you know your whole family will love, is there?! xo

  3. Quick question – when you freeze these, should you that before reheating? Also, do you reheat in the muffin pan? They look great!

    • That would be “thaw before reheating” – I’m not quite awake yet :DDD

      • Hi Anne!
        Yes, if I freeze these, then I thaw in the refrigerator overnight before reheating. You can definitely reheat in the muffin pan or any other oven-proof dish that works for you. I hope you enjoy them! xo

  4. Is this a regular sized muffin pan, or jumbo?

  5. This is going on my low carb list. Looks so yummy!

  6. Cannot wait to try these, as I love all muffin tin type dishes. They are always wonderful for do ahead breakfast to help busy mornings/

  7. These are lovely. With our thick sliced Trader joe’s bacon I had to pre-cook for a bit longer than 5 minutes. Just wonderful though!

  8. How long, and at what temperature, would you reheatake in the oven?

  9. Can you use Canadian bacon?

  10. How difficult are these to eat? They look like fork and knife type foods, maybe not for very young or old, or those in a hurry?. I think I might drape another piece of bacon across the first to close the bottom of the cup…

  11. I eat 2 scrambled eggs for breakfast almost every single morning, I love them. However, my poor taste buds get bored out of their mind. I love recipes like this because it jazzes up my morning routine and the recipe is super simple! I can’t wait to try your recipe 🙂

  12. These are good – thanks Robyn
    Only thing I would say is don’t use large size eggs – i was quite surprised how full an egg filled the muffin cups
