Cheesy bacon egg muffins recipe

Egg muffins are just like mini frittatas! They can be cooked ahead of time and refrigerated for when you need a quick, convenient grab-and-go breakfast or snack. But nothing prevents you from enjoying a warm egg muffin fresh out of the oven for a brunch with family or friends, too!

How to make egg muffins

The method for making egg muffins is simple and stays the same whatever ingredients you put in the mix: Preheat your oven to 400ºF (200ºC), Break eggs in a bowl, and beat them with salt and pepper. Add in your garnish – here we have cheese, bacon, pepper, and Italian herbs – and give a quick stir. Divide the egg mixture into greased muffin cups and bake in the oven until set, about 10 to 15 minutes depending on the size of your egg muffins.

1. To make the cheesy bacon egg muffins: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease a 6 count muffin pan with oil or non-stick cooking spray. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, crack in eggs and whisk together with salt and black pepper.

2. Stir in cooked bacon, cheddar cheese, Italian seasoning, and red chili pepper flakes (if using). Divide evenly into muffin cups filling each about 2/3 full. Top with more bacon and cheese if you like. Bake the egg muffins in preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until set. Allow to cool a bit and serve your cheesy bacon egg muffins immediately, or enjoy cold, or at room temp. ❤️

Tips for the cheesy bacon egg muffins recipe

  • Grease your muffin tin properly so the egg muffins don’t stick to the pan. You can also use cupcake liners to prevent egg muffins from sticking.
  • The egg muffins will puff up while they bake in your oven. So fill them only 3/4 of the way up to prevent overflowing.
  • Let your bacon egg muffins cool down a little before removing them from the muffin pan.

How to customize the egg muffins?

The egg muffins recipe is versatile enough so you can customize with what you have on hand in the refrigerator! Some nice additions would be:

  • Sauteed mushrooms
  • Leeks
  • French onions
  • Spinach
  • Olives
  • Bell peppers

How long to keep the egg muffins leftovers?

You can keep the egg muffins for up to 3 days in an airtight container in your refrigerator. Reheat gently in the microwave, or enjoy at room temperature. Keep in mind that the egg muffin can become spongy after reheating – It’s always better to eat them quickly.

Can we freeze egg muffins?

Yes! Let the baked egg muffins cool completely, then wrap individually in plastic wrap and pop them in a freezer-safe ziplock bag. They will last for up to 2 months in the freezer. To reheat, remove from the plastic wrap and heat in the microwave in 15-second increments until the frozen egg muffins are thawed and warmed through.

    The perfect substitution for my guilty pleasure of a peanut butter on wholegrain bread sammich! It's taken me a minute to get there but this is it! Another win for me and carnivores everywhere. Just don't try to cheat and use cupcake cases to try to save dishes. They leak. And the muffin sticks like nothing on earth wasting muffin. :-((

    These are easy and very good. I’m going to freeze some. I hope they freeze well

    This was wonderful! I added 3 more eggs and a cup of chopped spinach and my 5 year old said it was the best thing she had ever had! Thanks! 😊

    I made these on Sunday for a quick, grab and eat breakfast during the week - they were gone by Tuesday and were such a hit that I ended up making another batch that day. I have similar recipes in the past with the muffin cups and they just stuck to the paper, with these I just greased the muffin tin and took them out when they were still slightly warm - perfect. I will be making these again!

    Can you use a silicone baking pan instead?

  • Haddie

    I substituted the bacon with sausage and it turned out perfectly. Great recipe!

    These are so delicious and healthy. They also taste even better when thrown into the air fryer that next day for just a couple of minutes if you have left overs.

    I was looking for an easy egg muffin recipe and this did not disappoint! I added diced shallots for a little more flavor and they were perfect. My son HATES eggs and he ate them without any fuss and my husband enjoyed them as well. Will definitely be making them again.

    These were great. I used half cheddar and half colby jack cheese. Also sauteed some minced onions and green peppers and added in, as well as the bacon. Did not use the seasonings at all. My grandchildren can not have dairy, so I doubled the recipe and added 1/2 cup mayo in place of the cheese for their batch. They were even better. Didnt miss the cheese at all. A real keeper

    Great easy recipe. I added chives, smoked paprika, salt and pepper. Next time I'll skip the Italian seasoning. Not to my taste with this combination. I bought a big bag of bacon crumbles instead of cooking the bacon and making crumbles. Made the process so much easier.

    OMG, BEST, FRESHEST, TASTY Breakfast for grab and go! Never made the same batch twice. Mix it up every time. Add ons have been pimento,green peppers,green onions,garlic,sausage.LOVE THIS RECIPE! So much healthier than frozen breakfast burritos I used to buy for convenience. Getting up at 3am takes the “brain work “ out of the equation! Can’t go wrong. Don’t ever share at work tho. If they see you eating one, they want one. I’m not good at sharing EXCELLENT food..lol. Thumbs UP! Thank you!!!

    I haven't made them yet. On my list. Quick question is the serving size 1? Thanks so much!

    So easy to make, I used a bit of origano leaves just before baking tastes delish.

  • Jenna

    I am sorry that I ever made these…. Because now I have to keep making them!! I generally don’t eat breakfast because I don’t have enough time before work. These egg cups are delicious and you can change up the flavor so easily! I make mine in a smaller muffin pan that has 24 cups, they are hand held 2 bite cups that are easy to eat on the go

    I bought silicon muffin cups and they are fantastic. Just falls out of the cup. Make a big batch for the week and breakfast is so easy. Microwave 1:15 seconds

  • Rebecca

    Made these today and came out delicious! Omitted the red pepper, had ham cubes no bacon today, but it’s still pork! Lol! Really yummy, thank you!

  • Nikki

    These are so quick and delicious! I have a large 6 ct muffin pan, I use 7 large eggs. 5 eggs only filled 5 spots halfway full. Added 2 tbsp sour cream to the eggs my second time, turned out so much fluffier!! Great with Lawrys cracked pepper season salt and Lawrys course ground garlic with parsley.

  • Elizabeth

    Love them and so easy! Added a touch of pesto and chopped fresh spinach. Delicious!

  • Susan

    My secret to preventing the egg muffins from sticking in the pan is to heavily grease the muffin pan and then generously dust with baking mix or pancake mix. It adds a little extra flavor and the delicious muffins don’t stick!! I love these egg muffins. They are great for a sit down breakfast or an on the go meal!

  • Karen

    2021-08-29 07:33:41

    Delicious, my first attempt this morning. Will definitely be making again.

  • Aubrey

    5/5 stars, so good and easy to make. I couldn't find my bacon bites so i used shredded honey ham instead and it turned out delicious!

  • Katie

    2021-07-10 17:36:22

    5/5 stars it was incredibly delicious! I used some of the bacon grease to coat the bottom of the muffin pan and it gave it some extra flavoring! I even cut it into quarters and put in mini baking cups to serve at a breakfast party. Everyone enjoyed them and some even asked for the recipe, haha.

  • Cyd

    2021-03-11 18:54:13

    Yum! I doubled the recipe and fried some minced onion to add in. Perfect! Make sure you do a good job with the cooking spray because mine stuck a bit. (my fault!)

    @Karina and @Kaitlyn, I make them all the time and freeze for a quick microwavable breakfast. I only keep them frozen for about a week or two and the reheat very nicely! Just wrap in a damp paper towel and heat for about 30 - 40 seconds (depending on how many and how big)

  • Pam

    2021-02-06 20:00:27

    Yum. Added mushroom, grated carrot and zucchini, Moroccan spice, curry powder. Looked fab as they came out of the oven but sadly sank - taste was awesome tho.

  • Karina

    2021-01-26 19:31:48

    Are these best frozen for prep?

  • Kaitlyn

    2021-01-24 15:02:48

    I just have a quick question about these. Can they be frozen, and if they can be, for how long?

  • Daryl

    2021-01-17 11:29:25

    Best recipe ever and so easy. I change up the seasoning and cheese too. Great hot or cold!
