Bacon Eggs Cups are such a delicious breakfast and brunch option! 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 smokey flavor from the bacon mingled with the parmesan cheese and the creaminess of the egg are a mighty delicious combination that we absolutely love! And that freshness from the green onion takes them over the top!

My recipe below makes six bacon egg cups, but you can scale this recipe to make the number that you need!

How to Make Bacon Egg Cups

To make these, you’ll need these ingredients:

Ingredients

  • Bacon – thick-cut slices
  • Eggs
  • Parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • Chopped green onions

Step by Step Instructions

Here’s how I make them.

Cook bacon. 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.

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

Add Cheese and Cook. 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.

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

How to Make Ahead and Store Bacon Egg Cups

To make ahead: bake the egg cups for 13 minutes as directed. Allow to cool slightly and then transfer to an airtight container.

To store: Store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. When ready to serve, reheat, top with salt, pepper, and green onions, and serve.

Bacon Egg Cups Recipe – Bacon Egg Cups make a delicious recipe perfect for serving for breakfast, brunch or snack! Great to make for a crowd or to make ahead and reheat for busy mornings!
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Servings: 6 people

Ingredients 

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

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • 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.
  • Arrange each slice of bacon around the edge of each muffin cup, creating a circle around the edge.
  • 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.
  • 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. 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. 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…

    1. Hi Nancy,
      I’ve never tried them with Canadian bacon. Hope you enjoy these – they are delicious! Thanks!

  2. 5 stars
    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!

  3. 5 stars
    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/

    1. Oh goodness, yes! They make a great low carb breakfast, brunch or snack meal! I hope you enjoy them! xo

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

    1. 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

  5. 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 🙂

    1. 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
