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!

    Hi Jenny, Often you’re first on my bloglist and then I check – just to see that the blog wasn’t updated. Perhaps there’s a problem?
    I always love to see your blog updates! I just recognized that often I get the information that your blog is updated, but then it’s still the old post.
    Do you have any idea?
    Thank you and thanks for your great recipes!!!!

    I’m so making these clever little cups this weekend!! I think this breakfast will become a mainstay at our home. I have to admit right off the bat I’m going to have to mix(no pun intended) it up a bit and scramble the eggs before I pour them in the cups. (Sigh..he can’t tolerate eggs cooked any other style) I think it’ll work just fine.
    Thanks bunches for this yummylicious treat!

    I love it! Gonna have to get myself a large muffin tin so I can make them for my family! Total YUM!

    I gotta try these. My daughter would love one of these on her way out the door! And so easy! 🙂

    I had BT (no lettuce) on a Thomas “everything” toasted bagle for dinner tonight. Alas, I had to use that pre cooked bacon that does not need to be refrig. My refrig died Tuesday and a new one is coming this week end!

    I use thin buns for my Egg McMuffin to reduce the carbs. Several different brands available but I like that bagel the best.

    The special pan I want is a muffin top pan. Don’t you think that would work?

  6. Lauren @ Crave. Indulge. Satisfy.

    Such a great idea! My husband and I eat a version of this every morning for breakfast, just not stuffed inside a muffin cup and with canadian bacon instead of regular bacon…plus we add some tomato slices on top! This is definitely a great breakfast!

    These look really good. And seem super easy to make. Next time I have family over for the weekend I’m gonna give these a whirl.

    “3 whole english muffins plus one half, split”
    Is what you list in the recipe so what is the one half spilt for. from the pics it looks like you have a half in each tin so that’s what i plan on doing but just curious what you mean by plus one half spilt…….help a confused girl out.

    1. Jenny

      I need to edit the recipe, it should just be 3 whole english muffins, split giving you 6 halves 🙂

  9. terri

    If there are six openings in the tin, why do you need more than the 3 whole muffins? What’s the half of one for?

    1. Jenny

      My mistake, I need to edit the recipe, it should just be 3 whole english muffins, split giving you 6 halves 🙂

    Jenny, those are TOO adorable! I’m making dinner for the in-laws next week but it looks like I’m making brunch now too!! They’ll get a kick out of these.

  11. Fuji Mama

    Ok, these are so darn awesome!! I LOVE them! I haven’t eaten breakfast yet (should I be admitting that?), and now I’m starving!!

  12. Sara

    This is such a great idea! They look great and I bet they are bit healthier than the ones you’ll find at McDonalds. 🙂

  13. Mandy

    nummy! I’m definitely going to let the girls make these–making breakfast is their favorite part of the day!

  14. MamaD

    These look so yummy! Do you think they would work with the egg scrambled for those not big fans of runny eggs??

    1. Michelle

      That’s what I was thinking, I’m not a fan of over easy or runny eggs either, my yolk has to be cooked all the way or just egg whites…But they sure do look yummy especially with salsa or hot sauce. Thanks for the great idea. Do you think you could freeze them for a quick breakfast when your in a hurry to get out the door?

  15. Brittney Smith

    Oh those look delish…and we love Egg McMuffins!!! I will be trying those this weekend! Yum!
