  1. OMG I made these for breakfast today and WOW! I cant believe these dont have more reviews. So easy! I sprinkled salt/pepper on the egg before I put the cheese on. My 6 yr old loved them too which is a plus! Thanks for a do-over recipe!
  2. I don't know what went wrong... I followed the recipe. The bacon was still raw when It came out, so I had to put it back. The eggs were practically rubber by the time the bacon was actually cooked, and now I'm having a time of it trying to scour the muffin tin.
  3. Fantastic, simple recipe. Please note that the cups will not easily pop out if using a stainless muffin pan. The author probably used a nonstick muffin pan.
  4. These were amazing!!!! I put a slice of deli turkey in bottom of cup then put bacon on top of egg. I used turkey bacon.
  5. These are phenomenal! I use whole grain bread, turkey bacon and 2% cheese to keep it a little healthier.


  1. Use nonstick pan and prebake bacon before adding the eggs
  2. Don't think that 9.7g fat is low for breakfast. Use Canadian bacon or a 1g fat ham instead of bacon. I also used 2% american cheese. This will lower the fat even more.


I am a stay at home (or in the car:)) mom to two cute kids-ages 7 & 4-and one husband! He's pretty cute too....We live in Fullerton,California, which is also where I grew up. I love, love, love to cook, drink wine with friends, shop, travel, read magazines and collect cookbooks. I have zillions of them and love to sit on the couch with a good cookbook! I belong to a guild of Children's Hospital of Orange County(CHOC) and we recently just finished our own cookbook to raise funds for the hospital. I also enjoy shopping and selling on ebay-so many fun things to find out there!
