Bacon Egg Pancake Cups

Pancakes, egg and bacon all-in-one. These make a great breakfast treat.

About a month ago I made some bacon egg toast cups. What I really liked about them is that they have all the breakfast items in one neat package. I started thinking about how it could be better, and I realized what would be a more perfect breakfast for me is to have pancakes, bacon and eggs.

So I set out to try making a bacon egg pancake cup. It took a few tries before I got it right. Figuring out how to incorporate the pancake batter was trickier than I thought. But when I finally got it right, I really liked the results.  I like this one even better than the bacon egg toast cups, maybe because I’m not as fond of toast as I am of pancakes.

Bacon Egg Pancake Cups


6 strips of bacon (precooked like the ones you can buy at Costco will make this easier)
6 eggs
your favorite pancake mix


1. Mix up a small batch of your favorite pancake batter. About enough to serve 2-3 pancakes. I used Bisquick mix for mine.
2. Grease 6 molds of a muffin pan.
3. Put a thin layer of pancake batter at the bottom of each mold. This layer must be very thin (about 1/4 inch); thinner than when you normally make pancakes because the pancakes will rise when cooked and you want room for your eggs.
4. Preheat the oven to 350F and bake the pancakes in the oven for about 3-4 minutes, until the batter is almost completely cooked.
5. If using raw bacon, cook strips of bacon in a pan or in the microwave until they are about half done. If using precooked ones, You don't need to do this step.
6. Line the bacon around the inside of each muffin mold.
7. Crack an egg and pour it into the middle of each mold. If you are using large or extra large eggs, leave out some of the egg white, or else it will take too long for the egg white to cook and you may overcook your egg yolk.
8. Bake at 400F for about 8 minutes or until the eggs are cooked to your desired doneness.

  1. I want one of these every morning for the rest of my life.

  2. OMG that’s the perfect breakfast bite all wrapped up in one!! I’m so excited to try these soon!

  3. All the best parts of breakfast in one, yum!

  4. Did you eat these as is, or pour maple syrup on top?

    I think the maple syrup element needs to be in there somewhere, because what’s pancakes without syrup, but pouring it over the egg might be a bit nasty. Then again you use Bisquick for pancake batter so…

    What about pouring in a little maple syrup over the pancake layer after step 4? Or perhaps glazing the bacon with some maple syrup while cooking it in step 5? Hmmm, I think I am onto something here… Must try!

  5. I might try this and add some maple chips to the pancake batter.

    @Aunt Jemima, maple chips will add maple syrup flavor without the mess, so it’s still a self contained all-in-one breakfast package. They’re just kind of hard to find, so I order online. I use them to make pancake muffins with cooked crumbled bulk breakfast sausage in them.

  6. Question: Is there any way to make the eggs well done/not runny? I haven’t attempted to make these yet, but it looks as if the egg is still over-easy or medium. I like mine cooooked all the way through. Just curious if they are fully done or if there was a way to adjust?

    • Yes, you can cook the eggs however much you want. Just leave them in the oven a little longer if you want them cooked all the way through and they should be fine. I’ve done them both ways (still runny, completely done) depending on who is eating them. You can just poke the egg yolk to check if it is done if you want yours cooked all the way.

  7. omg these are ADORABLE! they don’t sound toooo hard to make either – very exciting 🙂

  8. i am a full time student and i work this recipe is a dream come true.. Only thing i would change is making the eggs scrambled thank u so much

  9. Oh my goodness these look simply delicious! May have to try these very soon!

  10. I fixed this recipe this morning, only I used turkey bacon, as that’s what I had on hand. This was really delish! It’s going in my permanent recipe file. Thanks, Kirbie!

  11. Came here cause of 9Gag. Stayed for the food.

  12. I’m going to try this with toast because i’m too lazy to whip up some pancake batter

  13. I’m so going to have to try this:)
    I found your recipe through the damnlol website

    I thought you’d find that awesome:) You’re kinda simi=famous now:P

  14. Maple bacon was the perfect thing to use for the maple flavour. These are the best!

  15. We found your recipe quite a while back, and it’s since become a family favorite. (They’ve been dubbed ‘Munchkins’ in our house.) We always use peppered bacon, and real maple syrup on the side tastes great with it. Thank you for sharing!!

  16. this looks so yummy thanks for this idea, i stumbleupon your site and i am glad.

  17. What about separating the eggs first, so that you can pour in half or two-thirds of the white, and then plop in the yolk?

    • You mean as an alternative to leaving some of the egg white out? The problem was that there was just too much egg white for the size of the muffin cups and took a while to cook. Of course you can separate the eggs too and plop the egg yolk after but I think the end result is the same.

  18. I personally do not like bacon, But I can’t wait to make these for my boyfriend! Awesome!!

  19. Fantastically breakfasty awesome !!!!

  20. this my favorite breakfast mixing my egg yolk with the syrup.. yum How about crumbling the bacon through out ? the only problem is I’m not worth much after eating . BTW You have my Vote

  21. I’m not the biggest fan of sweet breakfasts, so I plan to try this with a buttermilk biscuit mix, instead of a pancake mix.

  22. Looks good… I’ll try it.

  23. Try this with some Grouper 🙂

  24. I’m trying some Grouper with this!

  25. Excellent Recipe. I’m a novice cook and they came out great. The hint regarding the egg whites is right on. Thanks

  26. This is such a great idea. I have Celiac Disease. This recipe could easily be made with gluten-free pancake mix. Both bacon and eggs are naturally gluten-free. I am going to try it. Thank you

  27. Awesome! I used the pancake spray and precooked bacon…same great taste..but way less time! Love it

  28. Use Medium/ small eggs. That should eliminate the need to dump part of your eggs out. Worked well for me.

  29. lolololol made these for my boyfriend XD he loves them so much

  30. You rock SUPER hard.
    this breakfast awesomeness was beyond my foodyest dreams….. and i like to dream BIG! 😀
