Breakfast in a Muffin

I decided to try a new recipe this morning and it was deeeelicious. It's an entire breakfast in a muffin!

I adapted the recipe from this one... and by adapted, I mean, I took a slightly lazier approach. 

  • 1 package refrigerated biscuits (the kind in the tube)
  • large eggs (one for each biscuit)
  • monterey jack or cheddar cheese
  • butter to grease the muffin tin
  • salt and pepper
  • bacon
Grease your muffin tin. Flatten each biscuit with the palm of your hands and line the muffin tin with them. Fill every other cup... (please excuse my makeshift tins, I really need to invest in a decent one).

Place sliced cheese in the bottom of each cup. I used monterey jack because it's my favorite but cheddar would work well too. Crack one egg into each cup.

Top with a little more sliced cheese.

Bake at 375 degrees until the eggs have hardened. The biscuits seem to cook faster than the eggs. I had to cover the muffin tins with aluminum foil halfway through the baking process so they would not burn. 

Once they are cooked through, add some bacon and enjoy!

If you're feeling extra innovative, you could add some hollandaise sauce to these. I'll definitely be doing that next time.


  1. I might have to try that next weekend! the wonderful simplicity of the idea combined with the fact that I've never seen anything like it kind of cracks me looks so good!

  2. You should definitely give these a try! The next morning, I reheated the leftovers in the oven and made hollandaise sauce to go with them. So good!

  3. Yum what a great idea! And good for on the go. :)

  4. What a cute idea! I'll have to try it out! Thanks for the post.
