Best Egg Cups!

Good morning bacon egg cups!

I’ve been making these bacon baked egg cups for as long as I can remember because bacon and eggs are 2 of my favorite things! Did I mention that’s all this recipe calls for literally only calls for bacon and eggs! You’ll have this recipe ready in under 30 and breakfast or snacks for the whole week.

Everyone loves this recipe because it is a great meal prep recipe for the week. If you are on a meal-prepping kick now or getting ready to meal prep for back to school, these egg cups are the recipe for you.

All you have to do is make a batch of egg cups, let them cool, and place them in the refrigerator for a great grab-and-go breakfast or snack for the week!

How to Make Bacon Egg Cups

Now that you know you only need 2 ingredients for this bacon and egg cups recipe, it’s time to get cooking! Set your oven to 400ºF and spray a nonstick muffin pan with cooking spray and let’s get rockin’.

  1. Create a bacon basket: this is probably the most difficult step of the whole process and it’s not even hard! Create a little basket of sorts in each egg cup. Make sure you place a little piece of bacon on the bottom so that it can catch the egg once you crack it in. You’ll likely need to use a pair of scissors to cut your bacon so that it fits perfectly.
  2. Bake: Depending on how crispy you like your bacon, you’re going to want to give them a little zap before cracking the eggs in!
  3. Crack egg: Once your bacon has firmed up a bit, it’s time to crack in your eggs! You’ll need 12 total large eggs . PS: if you’re not into yolks, you can totally skip them and just use egg whites!
  4. Bake again: Time to bake the eggs! Watch your eggs closely. The longer you bake your eggs, the firmer the yolk will be! Bake time really depends on how runny you like your egg yolks.

Bingo, bango, bongo…bacon wrapped baked eggs!

Ingredients 

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF and spray a nonstick muffin tin with coconut oil cooking spray. Set aside.
  • Next, use one piece of bacon per muffin to create a basket of sorts for the egg. Place the bacon on the inside of each muffin so that it covers the sides completely. Then, use a pair scissors to cut the remaining bacon. Use this excess piece of bacon for the bottom of your basket. Repeat with all pieces of bacon.
  • Place bacon in the oven at 400ºF for around 7 minutes. Remove before they start to get crispy.
  • Crack 1 egg inside of each bacon basket. Make sure that you use large eggs as anything bigger will be too much egg to hold in the muffins.
  • Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes depending on how runny you like your eggs.
  • Finally, season with pepper and enjoy!

How do you get the bacon to not flop over? I tried these and the bacon caved in on itself before I could even get the egg in them. And the bacon shrank so much that I had to abandon ship.

This looks great, do you think you could add small tomatoes in those as well?

P.S. I noticed today that when I comment on your blog via my phone, it doesn’t post. Only if I use the computer. Weird!

These are SO clever!! Now I am wondering if they will work with vegetarian “bacon.” I am going to have to give that a try!
