These Bacon and Egg Cups are easy, fast and customizable for each diner. Not all of my breakfast ideas for Christmas morning are difficult or time consuming. These would also be good for a breakfast/brunch buffet since they are easy to just pick up and eat.
I stumbled on this cute idea on Pinterest, but it was just a picture without a link to the recipe. Bummer, because I’d love to credit the original poster.
All you need to do to make them is line muffin cups with bacon (I used turkey bacon) scramble some eggs with a little milk, add your fixins, then pour into the muffin cups and bake. If you want to let the diners personalize them, pour the scrambled eggs in the pan first then let them put their extras in the cup themselves.
What extras should you add? Whatever you like in your scrambled eggs or omelets.
The egg is probably going to seep out of the bacon like in this photo.
No worries, just remove the excess egg if appearance is important. Otherwise leave it on.
Bacon and Egg Cups - Simple cups of bacon filled with scrambled eggs.
12 pieces bacon (pork, beef or turkey)
12 Large eggs (or egg substitute)
1/4 cup milk (any kind)
•spices - salt, pepper, garlic, Italian seasonings, season salt, etc.
•chopped spinach or other greens
•crumbled cooked bacon or sausage or ham
•grated cheese (save some to sprinkle on top approximately half way through baking)
•anything else you'd mix with scrambled eggs or put in an omelet
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place bacon strips around the edges of the cups of a muffin tin.
Mix eggs with milk and beat with a whisk until mixed. Add in extras. If you are going to add a lot of extras, reduce the number of eggs to about nine. Or make more than a dozen cups since you will have extra filling. Pour egg mixture into muffin cups about 3/4 full.
Alternatively you can scramble the eggs and add different fillings to each cup for different tastes.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until eggs are completely set in the middle, approximately 30 minutes. If desired, sprinkle some grated cheese on top after about 20 minutes so it does not sink into the egg mixture.
