Breakfast…Lunch…Dinner…you can enjoy these Egg Muffins with Bacon and Cheese all day long! They are super simple to make and can be stored in the fridge or even freeze for your enjoyment later…that is if they last that long! Fill them with whatever you desire…I had bacon on hand, so I used that for this recipe. Make them entirely vegetarian if you wish…all up to you! This recipe makes six large muffins…double it…you will want more.

Five egg muffins with bacon, spinach, cheddar and Gruyere

Cut your bacon into small bite-size pieces. Fry and brown well. Remove from pan and drain excess grease on paper towels.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, combine the eggs and heavy whipping cream. Season with kosher salt and pepper. Whisk until the egg mixture is nice and fluffy.

Grab your large muffin tin and spray generously with non-stick spray. I used a pan similar to this one. Click here. Spoon in the egg mixture to about 1/3 of each cup. Top with about a few teaspoons of spinach and a few generous pinches of Gruyere cheese.

Add more of the egg mixture on top of each…you want to fill to about three-quarters. Top that with a generous amount of bacon pieces and the shredded cheddar cheese. You should have just enough of the egg mixture left to top off each muffin.

Bake for about 35 to 40 minutes or until the eggs have set in the middle. Test with a toothpick. Remove the Egg Muffins with Bacon from the oven and allow to cool in the pans for about five to ten minutes…this will allow the muffins to set up a bit. Muffins should pop right out…you may have to run a knife just over the edge of each muffin to release. Serve and ENJOY! If you love these, you will love my recipe for Mini Crustless Quiche!

I am more than just recipes. I love fashion and style too! Most importantly, I love my Family (my Hubby and my Fur Babies). My Husband (aka my “Kitchen Bitch”) means the world to me. He’s pretty damn cool too. Not only is he one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, he also has had a lengthy career in professional hockey. Not only winning two Stanley Cups with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the early ’90’s, but most recently winning the Calder Cup with the Charlotte Checkers, amongst many other accolades. If you live in Charlotte and play hockey, or have a family member who plays, be sure to contact him!

Our life has changed dramatically in the past few years with the passing of our two goldendoodles, Vegas and Viva. We were lucky enough to have Vegas for five years (totally wish it was longer). Most recently, losing our Viva to a brain tumor in July of 2020. We welcomed our mini goldendoodle 7, almost seven years ago. We just added the amazing Hazel! Of course, I am always posting tons and tons of photos! Be sure to check out my recipe for Pet Bone Broth! This broth is super rich in nutrients and will provide your pet with a multitude of health benefits!
