How To Make Bacon, Potato & Egg Cups (Recipe)

Bacon Potato & Egg Cups

I don’t know about you, but there are days when I crave bacon, eggs and potatoes for breakfast. There is one thing that I cook for breakfast that has all three ingredients and even some cheese too! My family LOVES the Bacon, Potato & Egg Cups that I make for breakfast.

These are really easy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 12 slices of bacon (not thin but not too thick)
  • 1 cup shredded potatoes
  • 7 eggs
  • 1 cup shredded cheese
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 tbs milk

Directions:

First place a piece of bacon in each muffin tin well and wrap around like pictured below. I don’t pre-cook my bacon but many people that make these put them in a pan for a few minutes prior to placing in muffin tin.

Bacon Egg Cups Step 1

Next you are going to put the eggs, salt, pepper and milk in a bowl and stir well. Add cheese and stir to blend in cheese.

Next you are going to put a small layer of shredded potatoes in each of the muffin wells in the tin.

Bacon Egg Cups Step 3

Next you are going to pour the egg mixture into each muffin well, about 3/4 full. Don’t overfill because you might end up with a mess to clean up.

Bacon Egg Cups Step 4

Place in oven and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

Bacon Egg Cups Step 5

After about 30 to 35 minutes, remove from oven. Remove from muffin tin, let cool a few minutes as the bacon will be very hot when you first take it out of the oven.

I have also made these with turkey bacon and they come out just as good! You can also substitute the potatoes on the bottom and put a small piece of bread.
