If you’re looking for an easy way to dress up your standard bacon and eggs, look no further than these delicious bacon and egg cups!
Whether you want to eat these every morning, eat them as a low carb snack on the go or serve them for a special brunch, these creamy bacon and egg cups are truly divine.
The only mistake I made was not preparing enough of them as my family gobbled them down all in one sitting. These are a go-to family item that I honestly think we could eat every day!
To take these from the classic bacon and egg cups, we stepped it up a notch by adding in a layer of parmesan at the bottom to form a bottom crust, we garnished with a sprinkle of more cheese and fresh herbs, and before baking, we finished each egg cup off with a splash of decadent whipping cream.
In addition to being such a versatile dish, this is a super easy recipe to adapt to whatever you have on hand.
Don’t have parmesan? Use cheddar.
Don’t have cheese? Skip the cheese.
Don’t have bacon? Use ham.

A standard sized muffin tin
6-12 slices of bacon
garlic salt (subs. table sat if you don’t have it)
fresh herbs such as chives or parsley
whipping cream (optional)
To perfectly cook the bacon and egg cups so you end up with crisp bacon and over medium eggs, you’ll need to partially cook the bacon before adding the eggs.
Preheat your own to 400 and bake the bacon on a baking sheet placed on the center rack until starting to brown but still easy to bend. This should take 8-9 minutes depending on the thickness of your bacon.
Let cool slightly to make it easier to handle the bacon.
Grease a standard muffin tin, wrap each muffin cup with a slice of partially cooked bacon and sprinkle a little parmesan to lightly cover the bottom of each cup.
Carefully crack one egg into each of the cups
Add a sprinkle of fresh chives and parmesan, if desired (optional)
Bake the eggs on the center oven rack for 11-12 minutes.
How long you cook your eggs depends on how you like them! Our family prefers eggs over medium, which means the yolk is mostly cooked but still has a little bit of runniness. For us, that was 11 minutes.
If you prefer a firm yolk, that will take around 12 minute.
Even if your yolks get completely cooked, they are still delicious and creamy because of the added cream and cheese.
Sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper to taste.
Serve and enjoy!
