These cheese bacon egg cups are easy to make with just three ingredients! Bake them in a muffin pan for a fun handheld breakfast treat.

When I make something I like, I tend to make it several times in a row, trying out different variations. After making the bacon egg cups, I tried several variations including ones sprinkled with cheese.

I don’t really like melted cheese on my food (I always order regular burgers and not cheeseburgers), but FH loves melted cheese on everything so he really liked this variation.

It’s just as simple as the bacon egg cups if you have shredded cheese in your fridge like I did. I sprinkled a blend of Monterey jack and cheddar cheese.  I don’t like how these look as much as the bacon egg cups because it covers up the egg yolk. It also makes it a little harder to tell how cooked the egg is, so you kind of have to guess. My eggs ended up being fully cooked for these, no runny eggs.

  1. Great way to enjoy these breakfast regulars.

  2. Would this work for scrambled eggs?

    • Hmm, i’m not quite sure how this would work with scrambled eggs. Usually you have to constantly stir scrambled eggs, and with this, you just put the whole egg into the pan and let the oven cook it.

  3. When I tried these I baked them without the cheese and then added it afterward. The egg/pan was still hot enough to melt the cheese and my yolk was nice and runny. Such a neat idea!

  4. I love how easy yet delicious these are. Your pictures are beautiful.
