    Looks delicious! I have never heard of “ready-cooked bacon”! I will probably just put a alice of streaky bacon in.It will cook very quickly.

    I’m in the UK, where do I get a Texas size muffin tin from. commercial or domestic will do.

  3. Traci Moore

    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”

  4. Heather

    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. 🙂

  7. Lindsay

    Great, genius idea! I can’t wait to make this for my husband. He will absolutely love this!

  8. Katy

    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!

  9. Nick

    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.

  10. Becca

    I just made these (minus the bacon) one with a wheat sandwich bread and the other wish some cinnamon raisin bread – i am so satisfied now. Thank you for this! I’ll certainly be making these for my guests this weekend for brunch!

  11. Erin

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

  12. Glucometer Reviews

    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.

    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.

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

    Thanks for sharing

    I don’t eat eggs (a tragedy, i know) and I’m never up when my husband leaves for work. I’d love for him to have these at breakfast. How do you think these will freeze and reheat for a quick morning dash out the door?

  18. Marisa

    These are a huge hit in my house. I made them on a whim this weekend while we had out of town company. I didn’t have any bacon so I used good quality herb crusted turkey lunch meat and they were so good. My 4 yo keeps asking for them!!!

  19. Jen @ How To: Simplify

    I’ll definitely have to keep this on the “to make” list. These look great and I know they would be a huge hit in my house!

  20. Remodelaholic

    This seriously is genius and it is so adorable. I am making this asap just so I can look at how cute it is!

  21. ivoryfrog

    these look great, I think my kids might even eat these! 😀
    would sure help me out at breakfast time if they do…

    Thanks for sharing this fab idea. 😀

  22. Jamie

    Awesome idea Jenny! Everything I love all together for breakfast….eggs, cheese, bacon and bread. I will be giving these a try.
