Scrambled Egg Cups



I think most families are rushed to the limit in the mornings and ours is no different. I saw this recipe and thought of making a huge batch and freezing most of it to just grab and reheat on the weekday mornings. Well, we ate them this particular morning and finished them off through the week before I had a chance to freeze! We all enjoyed these; they're a healthier (no biscuit needed) and cheaper alternative to a fast food breakfast sandwich. This is also perfect for little boogers like mine who love eggs. :)


Scrambled Egg Cups
12 eggs
6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
3 tablespoons half & half (or milk)
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt and pepper to taste

Spray a 12 count muffin tin GENEROUSLY with cooking spray (I still had some stick and the pan needed a good soak before going in the dishwasher). Whisk together the eggs and milk; stir in the shredded cheese and bacon. Pour into greased muffin tin. Sprinkle some additional cheese on top of each egg cup if desired. Bake at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes.


The original recipe says you could easily change out the bacon for sausage or breakfast ham and I totally agree. Actually, I could see members of the family customizing their own with tomatoes, spinach, different kinds of cheese, etc. Fun!

  4. So glad you liked these! That's the one thing...they are a little trouble to get out of the pan, but so worth it when you do!

  7. They were good but I'm not sure they are worth the clean up for me. I sprayed each cup well and it stuck so badly. I wonder how they'd come out if I put them in pan liners..we shall see!

  9. I love the idea of having a bunch of these frozen in the freezer..I have a couple questions though..I was wondering how long you think they would last in the freezer and also how long you would reheat them in the microwave?And would you have to thaw them before microwaving?
