Bacon, Egg and Cheese Toast Cups

by Alli

Bacon, Egg and Cheese Toast Cups are baked in a muffin tin. This is the perfect way to make breakfast for a crowd. Because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love a good bacon, egg, and cheese cup? 

On Christmas morning, I always make cinnamon rolls and mocha punch. It’s a family tradition. I also like to add a savory choice. Bacon, Egg and Cheese Toast Cups are easy to make and so delicious.

Ingredients For Bacon, Egg and Cheese Toast Cups! (See full printable recipe towards the bottom of this post!)

  • bacon
  • bread slices (white or whole wheat)
  • shredded cheese
  • eggs
  • salt and pepper

Tips on How To Make Bacon, Egg and Cheese Toast Cups

You’ll need to precook the bacon until almost done. I like to bake the bacon in the oven for about 8-10 minutes at 400º F until almost crisp. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate. 

Spray a 12-cup muffin tin with cooking spray. Line each muffin cup with a slice of bread, pressing down gently. Make sure you don’t press too hard and tear the bread.

Bake about 2-3 minutes or until barely firm. Don’t overcook it. You just want the bread firm enough to hold the toppings.

Reduce the oven temperature to 375º F. Place a slice of bacon on each bread cup. The ends will be hanging out. You don’t want all the bacon down in the bread cup-like the photo below (do as I say not as I do). Only the middle of the bacon should be in the bread cup. (Blonde moment!)

Divide the shredded cheese evenly and sprinkle on top of the bacon.

Carefully crack an egg in each cup and season with salt and pepper to taste. Bake until egg whites are set, about 10-15 minutes.
