Bacon and Cheese Egg McMuffin Cups…

Tags: , , ,

It’s Thursday!!  I am so excited for the Bertolli event coming up next week.  Can’t wait to see which of my readers gets to go with me, I pick the winner tomorrow!  If you think you can take Mon-Wed off, don’t forget to enter HERE.

Break out your Large Muffin pan folks, we are making Egg McMuffin Cups today!  I love this recipe, it’s almost too easy and too cute!

Who needs McDonalds when you can make your own delicious 4 ingredient Egg McMuffin yourself?!  These are a blast to put together and look so cute on a plate.  My kids loved this little breakfast in a cup.

I LOVE drizzling some good hot sauce over mine, definitely give it a try if you like things spicy 🙂  Have a beautiful Thursday, see you all soon!

Here’s the lowdown….press your english muffin inside Texas Size Muffin cups, line inside with bacon, sprinkle inside with cheese, break an egg inside, season with salt and pepper, bake and woo hoo you are done!!  Mmmm!

How cute?!

Bacon and Cheese Egg McMuffin Cups

3 whole english muffins, split

6 slices ready cooked bacon, not microwaved, just right out of package

1/2 Cup shredded cheddar cheese

6 large eggs

Pinches of kosher salt and fresh cracked black pepper

1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Press english muffins carefully into bottom of  a 6 cup Texas size muffin tin.  Form a little circle with the bacon and place around inside of muffin.  Sprinkle inside with cheese then top with a whole egg in each cup, keeping inside the bacon ring.  Sprinkle with pinches of kosher salt and pepper.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until egg is cooked through, not jiggly 🙂

2.  Remove and let cool for 5 minutes before removing from muffin tin.  Serve as is or with some of your favorite hot sauce and a side of fruit!!

6 servings


Have a great rest of your week and weekend, come back soon 🙂

    breakfast foods should always be high in protein and also in carbohydrates, we need food energy during the early morning ;~.

    LOVE your site. I have made a couple of your recipes so far. last night I made this one as a test drive because I want to make them for a retirement breakfast for a co-worker. LOVED by all. They were so yummy and easy! Thanks for such a wonderful site.

    Oh wow! That looks absolutely delicious, I love how you took an old favorite and added your own twist. You also did an amazing job with the pictures, I will definitely try this recipe over the weekend.

    Such a great idea! I didn’t have the big muffin pans, so the egg overflowed a little bit, but I made it work.

    I just made these with vegetarian bacon such a nice and easy breakfast option. The only problem I had was the one egg slid off at first haha had to fix the bacon tighter and use the cheese to kind of seal the edges.

    You can actually also make them by just using and english muffin or bread on the very bottom and putting the bacon around the edges and the somehow still magically stay together! leaves a little more room for egg too!

    Whenever I bake eggs (which isn’t as often as I wish) I find that the eggs are always a little too runny for my liking, especially the white part. Do these come out all ‘jiggly” or are they firmer?

    Thank you so much, this is a fabulous recipe!!! In case anyone is wondering: I used uncooked bacon, and it turned out great. My hubby and I like our bacon cooked but still wiggly, so if that’s your thing, you don’t have to worry about the fully cooked bacon. 🙂

    Recipe looks good and I am looking forward to trying. Just one hopefully helpful comment for you; Egg McMuffin is a registered trademark and you would be safer from litigation by dropping the “Mc”
