How to Make Breakfast Biscuit Cups

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and prepare a jumbo muffin tin with non-stick spray. If you don’t have a jumbo muffin tin, you can also use small ramekins.
  2. Cook the bacon using your preferred method. I use my bacon cooker in the microwave for quick and easy bacon. Once the bacon is nice and crispy, allow it to cool and chop it into small pieces.
  3. Separate the biscuit dough into 8 biscuits and lightly press each one to spread it out and flatten it. Place 1 biscuit in each muffin cup, pressing the dough into the bottom and up the sides.
  4. Place some bacon and green onion in the bottom of each cup. Next, crack each egg into the cup and sprinkle the top with cheese.
  5. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Run small knife around cups to loosen. Serve immediately.

Tips and Tricks for Making Egg Breakfast Cups

  • If you want your egg to be runny, place the cheese on top of the bacon and onion first and then crack the egg on top. Bake at 400°F for 18-20 minutes.
  • Make a batch of these ahead of time for an event or large gathering. Once the egg cups have cooled, place them in a sealable container in the fridge. When ready to serve, reheat them in the oven at 350°F for 5-6 minutes or until hot all the way through.
  • You can freeze these Egg Breakfast Cups for later! Once they have cooled completely, place them in a freezer-safe container and separate each layer with wax paper. To reheat, microwave on high for 1 minute ot until heated all the way through.
  • As I mentioned, you can make these with different meats, cheese and vegetables. Try ham or sausage, green pepper or onion, or gouda or Monterey jack cheese.

Tools to Make Breakfast Egg Cups with Bacon

A jumbo muffin tin comes in handy more than you might think. Obviously, you can make large bakery-style muffins in it. But, you can also make other goodies like these breakfast cups.

I like to cook my bacon in the microwave because it’s fast and easy and clean-up is also easy thanks to my microwave bacon cooker tray.
