Ingredients to make these Egg Muffins

How to make breakfast egg muffin cups:

First, preheat the oven. Now, get your muffin pan ready. Spray the pan with cooking spray.

You can also use paper liners or cupcake lines if you prefer.

Second, roll out the crescents and push the seams together. Cut into 12 even squares.

Next, place a crescent square in each of the muffin cups.

Add the diced bacon to the crescent in each muffin.

Finally, whisk the eggs, milk, cheese and seasonings together. Pour the egg mixture on top of the bacon. Don’t overfill the cups. I like to add the egg mixture until it is about ¾ full. You can use egg whites if you prefer.

Bake these little muffins and get ready for a great breakfast. It normally takes right under 20 minutes until the eggs are firm.

Once they are out of the oven, let them sit for a few minutes before serving.

Note- The egg muffins will rise while cooking but they will settle back into each cup as the sit.

More ideas:

  • Use crumbled sausage instead of bacon. Or try both for meat lovers.
  • Meat free option- omit the meat all together.
  • Veggies- Add diced onion, red pepper, green pepper, green onion, mushroom, spinach and more. Anything you like!
  • Cheese- Cheddar, mozzarella, colby and pepperjack make great options.

Freezer friendly:

These are perfect to freeze and enjoy for a quick breakfast. Just place in a freeze bag for later. When ready to eat, I suggest letting them thaw over night in the fridge and then reheating in the microwave for a really quick breakfast option.

Try these for meal planning. You can make a bunch of them ahead of time and then keep them in your fridge to use on other mornings. They heat up in minutes for quick and easy breakfasts.

You can even make these to take while traveling. They are great for vacation and more.

  1. Yes, you can freeze them for up to 3 months and they will keep in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. I usually freeze a weeks worth in a gallon freezer bag and then move to the refrigerator the week that I will eat them and heat up the ones I need each day in the microwave. I hope you enjoy the recipe!

  2. This egg muffin is quite easy to make and suitable for breakfast. Great taste and enough nutrients
