Heavenly Breakfast: Muffin Pan Eggs

I had seen many recipes lately for extraordinary uses for muffin pans.  I already tried the meatloaf in a muffin pan, and was so eager to try eggs in a muffin pan!

As usual, I saw a lot of recipes for eggs in a muffin pan and I didn’t have all the ingredients on hand for any of them.  You know what that means!  I improvised.

… and they turned out fabulously!!

So here’s how I did it!

Muffin Pan Eggs

(This was the right amount for breakfast for just my husband and me)

5 eggs

salt and pepper (the amount you would normally use for 5 eggs)

grated cheese (mozzarella, Swiss, or cheddar)

bacon bits*

2 shakes of granulated garlic or garlic powder

2 tablespoons milk


1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Whisk together the eggs, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and milk.

3. Pour evenly (to the best of your ability!) into 5 greased sections in your muffin pan.

4. Sprinkle bacon bits into each section.  Sprinkle cheese into each section.

5. Bake for 12-16 minutes.

*I have to add that I only used bacon bits as a last resort.  Fresh bacon, ham, or any other type of meat would be much better, I’m positive!  Other good ideas would be onion and/or spinach! (Can’t wait to try!)

white cheddar cheese

Pretty tasty… and cute! 🙂

    And I guess I will be trying these this week. Sounds amazing. My niece is here for a couple days, so I think I will be making breakfast. 🙂

  2. What a fun idea! 🙂

  3. You have a great blog! Your muffins look fabulous! I think next time, I’m going to use a little less milk in mine (1/2 cup is somewhat ridiculous) so that my muffin shall not runneth over. I am still looking for the name of the, uh, sections.

    Happy blogging!

    Hi Bonnie, your egg muffins do look enticing! I like the idea of using white cheddar, I am definitely going to substitute that next time! I peeked around your blog a little bit, very nice presentation! Following now 🙂


  5. What a great recipe! I’ve got to try this – nice change from regular scrambled. Since I usually put hot sauce on mine, I may incorporate some into the muffins. I just liked your FB page – glad you are on!

    • I would be interested to see how you do it with hot sauce! Sounds yummy! 🙂

      I’m glad you liked my Facebook page! Feel free to “share” any of my posts. 😉

      Thanks for commenting again!

  8. Have you tried freezing these? I was wondering if it could be made in a large batch ahead of time, then thawed on the way out the door on rushed mornings.

    Thanks for the idea! A good way to switch up the ways of eating eggs.

  10. Trevor D'silva says:

    Oh boy! I’m definitely gonna try this! Reminds me of frittata!

  11. I’m always looking for these kinds of breakfast ideas for my husband because he needs to eat and drive usually. I also think I need to make a whole pan of these but you showed me that I could make just what I need or have on hand with the amount of eggs. Thanks.

    • I’m glad you found this helpful!
      Yes, a whole pan would be easy! Also, I use large eggs (usually from Aldi) and only added a little additional ingredients to the eggs, and it perfectly fit – one egg per section. It’s really easy to know how many eggs to make to fill your entire pan! 🙂

  12. This would be perfect for my kids, and way more fun than the ‘normal’ way we cook eggs. 🙂

  13. Muffin Pan Eggs really looks cute and easy to do. Thanks for sharing your healthy easy recipes. Great ideas!

    These look great! And so easy to whip up too. I am going to make these for breakfast the next time I have many guests staying over!

  15. What a great recipe! Thanks!

    I posted this to my pinterest board a while back and finally decided to try them this morning. They were divine! It is our new favorite way to make eggs in the morning. We are huge fans of quiche and they were like super flavorful mini quiches. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Loved this, was looking for a low carb egg recipe for my Keto Diet and this fits the bill. I also experimented having the a mozzarella filling instead of garnishing it on top, and its delicious.
