Bacon Egg Cups

Simple breakfast recipes are my favorite!! We especially love these recipes if they are ones we can make ahead and pop in the microwave when you are in a hurry in the morning. Today’s breakfast bacon egg cups are one those recipes.

They’re quick, simple, and can be made ahead of time (similar to our Egg Muffins)! We love to make these quick and simple breakfast recipes at dinner-time too when we are in a pinch!

These baked egg cups are made with cut crescent dough, bacon, eggs and cheese. Can you go wrong with those ingredients? I think not!

How to Make Egg Cups

As we mentioned, this recipe is very simple to make. It’s also easily changed up based on the ingredients you like most.

DOUGH. Roll out the crescent dough and cut it into 12 squares. You will then place 1 square into each cup of a greased muffin tin.

FILLING. Then, you will place 3 small pieces of bacon along the sides of each cup. Mix the eggs, milk and half of the shredded cheddar cheese, salt and pepper until it is well combined. Pour into each cup until about 2/3 full.

BAKE. From there you will top with more cheese and bake for 16-18 minutes.

Tips, Variations + Storing info

You do not have to use crescent dough, but it provides a delicious base and a way to keep the egg cups together better. If you want a gluten-free version, we recommend taking out the crescent square and putting in a piece of ham instead.

Here are other ingredients that work well in these crescent roll egg cups:

  • Other Meats – Sausage, Turkey Bacon and ham all are delicious
  • Other Cheeses – Mexican, Swiss and Monterrey Jack are great
  • Veggies – peppers, onions, broccoli, spinach

STORE in an air-tight container or Ziploc bag in the fridge for up to 5 days. FREEZE these by placing in a freezer-safe Ziploc bag and placing in the freezer for up to 3 months.

To REHEAT, place them in the fridge and heat until warm. If frozen, let thaw in fridge overnight before reheating.
