Equipment

Ingredients

  • 1 can refrigerated jumbo biscuits
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 4 strips bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 3 stalks green onions, chopped

Instructions

  • 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 use small, oven-safe ramekins.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Place some bacon pieces and green onion in the bottom of each cup. Next, crack each egg into a cup and sprinkle the top with cheese.

  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Run a small knife around the cups to loosen. Serve immediately, refrigerate for later or freeze for up to 6 months.

Notes

  • If you want your egg to be runny, place the cheese in with the bacon and green onion first and then crack the egg on top. Bake them 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 in 350°F oven 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.
  • 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.
