Bacon Egg Pancake Cups


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

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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.

      Haha. I think I may get sick of it if I had it every day, but it is nice to have once in a while.

    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!

    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.

      I didn’t even know there were maple chips! Thanks for letting me know

    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?

    • Kirbie replied: — April 22nd, 2011 @ 12:13 pm

      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.

    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!

    • Kirbie replied: — November 18th, 2011 @ 10:32 pm

      Glad you liked it. You should try it with regular bacon when you have a chance!

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

    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!!

      I love the name! So glad you enjoy this recipe

    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?

    • Kirbie replied: — January 30th, 2012 @ 8:46 am

      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.

    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.

    • Kirbie replied: — February 7th, 2012 @ 9:32 am

      I’ve made a biscuit version with pillsbury biscuit dough which was delicious too =)

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

    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

    • Kirbie replied: — February 20th, 2012 @ 10:29 am

      I’m glad to know it can be turned into a gluten free version!

    Kim — February 21, 2012 @ 7:13 am

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

    • Kirbie replied: — February 21st, 2012 @ 11:06 am

      Oh pancake spray. I used to have that stuff. Forgot all about it. I’ve been using precooked bacon too. Saves a ton of time.

    clmosher — March 7, 2012 @ 1:27 pm

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

    • Kirbie replied: — March 8th, 2012 @ 9:34 am

      Yeah that does eliminate the problem. I hardly ever have small eggs lying around though. heh.
