Total Time Prep Yield




Try cooked, crumbled sausage in place of bacon or make a vegetarian version with sauteed spinach. Dress things up with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese.

Cook's Notes

Standard muffin pans come in 6- or 12-cup size; if baking 6 items in a 12-cup pan, leave empty space in between. Nonstick pans are nice but not essential. Beware of very thin pans, which often lead to burning. Place pans on a baking sheet to make them easier to get in and out of the oven.

    I baked 3 hash brown patties alongside the muffin cups. The baking time and temp are the same. Crumble the patties over the top of the egg cups and sprinkle shredded cheese on top. Residual heat will melt the cheese or you could return it to oven just long enough to melt the cheese.

    Is the size of the cookie cutter diameter or circumference? I will probably make this again but as suggested add other seasoning. Green onions or garlic. My grandson enjoyed them ! Quick and simple to make.

    Simply amazing! So easy and guests always LOVE it! When I make these, I serve half of them with melted cheese - Basically I grate my favorite cheese on the cracked egg before putting them in the oven. I have used Swiss, cheddar and gruyere so far. Another yummy variation is using maple bacon instead of regular bacon. This adds a little maple smokiness and touch of sweet. A real crowd-pleasing dish

    Super fun and easy to make! I used wheat bread, but I would definitely try it with white next time. Also, instead of brushing the bread with butter, I may try to brush it with leftover bacon grease to give the bread more flavor. Definitely a keeper!
