Baked Breakfast Egg Cups

If I actually had a job or somewhere to go in the morning, this recipe would be a perfect for on the go breakfast. I see them at Costco whenever I go but because these are so easy and less inexpensive to make, I don’t even consider it.  They are egg bites. I will include the original recipe, but I rarely follow a recipe exactly. I like to use what I have on hand. Most recipes have wiggle room. I had leftover ham cubes, green pepper from the freezer and some cheddar cheese leftover from Christmas. That is what I used. These are good right out of the oven or you can freeze them for later. If you freeze them either thaw first before heating or heat on a paper towel to absorb moisture. 

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Cups 


12 slices of Canadian bacon (I used Ham cubes)

1 dozen eggs

2 T. grated parmesan (I used cheddar)

3/4 cup chopped grape tomatoes (I used green pepper)

1 T. chives (I omitted)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and spray or grease a 12-cup muffin pan

Arrange a bacon slice in each muffin cup. You might have to cut the circle half way through to fit

Crack 1 egg into each muffin cup (I mixed like scrambled eggs)

Sprinkle with salt and pepper

Put the cheese on top.  If you use chopped tomatoes, put them on top also.

Bake for 15 minutes at 400F.  When cool pop them out of the muffin cups and eat or let them cool before freezing.

When frozen warm in the microwave for a few seconds. They heat up quickly.
