Homemade Egg McMuffins are easy to make and taste like the favorite fast-food breakfast sandwich. They’re made with English muffins, bacon, and eggs and bake in a muffin pan for a great breakfast.
Continuing on my breakfast cup recipes, I recently tackled Bacon Egg McMuffin cups. English muffin + bacon + egg = Yum. These are a lot like McDonald’s breakfast sandwiches but better because they’re homemade and you don’t have to go through the drive-through to get them.
The English muffin develops a nice crispy exterior similar to if you had toasted it. The bacon doesn’t quite wrap around the entire muffin, but it does seem to fit right inside the muffin cup. Inside the crispy bacon wrap is the egg.
I used the oversized Texas muffin molds for these in order to fit the entire English muffin halves. Of course, if you don’t have oversized muffin molds you can cut circles out of the English muffins to have them fit a regular muffin pan.
These were a cinch to put together. It is even easier than the Sausage McMuffin cups I previously made because for those I had to cut out part of the sausage to fit the egg in.
- English muffins
- Precooked bacon – You can buy precooked bacon at Costco or precook the slices on the stove. Cook them until they are halfway done. They shouldn’t be crispy so you can wrap them in the muffin pan.
Optional: You can also add cheese, but don’t add too much. Sprinkle some shredded cheese in the McMuffin cup before you add the egg. It will melt as the egg cooks creating a cheesy base. You could also top each one with a slice of cheese towards the end of the baking time.
Grease the muffin pan with butter or cooking spray. If you have a large oversized muffin pan, you should be able to fit a whole English muffin in each mold. If you are using a standard-sized muffin pan, you will need to trim them to fit the molds.
Press the muffins into the bottom of the pan. Take a piece of bacon and place it in the mold so it is lining the muffin like a ring. Repeat this with the rest of the bacon.
Crack one egg in each McMuffin and then bake them for 15 to 20 minutes or until the egg white is cooked through.

Bacon Egg McMuffin Cups
- 3 English muffins
- 6 eggs
- 6 slices precooked bacon I use the packs sold at Costco
- Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease an oversized muffin pan. If you only have a regular sized pan, you will need to cut the English muffins to fit the pan. But they should fit in an oversized pan. Place half of an English muffin into each mold, squishing it down to the bottom.
- Wrap the bacon around. It should line the inside of the English muffin. Then crack an egg inside the bacon.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes until egg white is completely cooked. Serve while warm.

HEY! Do you think these would still be great after being frozen? I was actually wondering whether texas-sized muffin pans would cook eggs into a good mc-muffin size, but came across this which might be even better!!
Hm, I’ve never frozen them before. I don’t know how the eggs would be and bacon after freezing and reheating.
We made these for our Christmas breakfast and they were a big hit. The second batch we decided to put cheese on top….they were even better!!! can’t wait to try out a different one I’m getting hungry just thinking about it 🙂
Yay! I’m so glad you liked them!
It’ll sure be a lovely day if breakfasts are as grand as these muffin treats. I would love to wake up to a unique bacon recipe. I am sure my husband will love this too. Thanks for making breakfast extra special. Great post!
Breakfast food is my favorite, and this would make one amazing breakfast!
I usually am not a big breakfast person, but with dishes like this, I like it!
