    Ah this looks like such a wonderful idea! I miss the portability of a biscuit and sometimes I just make egg and sausage biscuits for breakfast. I’ll bet I wouldn’t even miss the biscuit with these! Great idea! :)

    mmm… I’ll have to make these once I get some more bacon – actually that’ll be tonight! These will be great – now maybe I’ll actually get to eat breakfast in the mornings!

    We had these this morning, my child asked me to make them everyday from now on…doesn’t even eat eggs!!! Yummy! Thanks, loving your site!!

    Thank you for the recipe.  Made this this morning and it was de-lish!  I just found your site and I’m enjoying it.  What is the “meals” tab at the top?  When I click the button, it directs me to log in, and I couldn’t find any explanation of what it was or why I needed to log in.

    do you think this would work as well with turkey bacon, which doesn’t seem to be as pliable or greasy as pork bacon??

    Yummy! I made some very similar a few weeks ago. I used shredded carrots and chopped green onions! Soooo gooood!

    • Dee says

      That’s a good idea using carrots. Now that I’m pregnant onions are too strong for my taste buds. I’ll have to try it with leeks instead.

    I am making a hatch of these right now. I used onions, bacon, tomatoes and cheese…I don’t think I can wait til morning to eat one!

    I make this every week and have tried various ways to coat the muffin pan so that the egg doesn’t stick.  I have used oils, butter, etc and nothing works.  I have to scrape out the egg muffin every time!  It’s probably my muffin pan.  So, Wellness Mama – what kind of pan do you use for these?? Help!

      I use a silicone muffin pan and they slide out every time without putting any sort of coating on the muffin pan.

      Get those silicone muffin cups! I just put them in my muffin tin. Clean up is easy because you can flip them inside out and scrub, or put them in the dishwasher. I also use them to make homemade lotion. Everything pops right out every time!

    My whole family loves these! If anyone is having issues with the eggs sticking to the muffin tin, here’s what i tried and it reduced the cleanup time: cut off 1/4 to 1/3 off of the bacon slices, place short cut piece at bottom of each cup. Line the rest of the cup with the bacon around the sides, cook in oven until fat is melting, then add veggies and egg mixture. Hope this helps!
