Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Muffins

One day I was scrollin' through Pinterest and I came across these delicious looking breakfast cups from Adventures of Our Fami-Ly and knew right away that I had to give them a try! If you don't already, stop by Sarah's cute blog and check it out, I think you will like it. She has some cute ideas, like this DIY Pedestal Bowl

This recipe was super easy, low on the ingredient count, and YUMMY!

We had made breakfast pizza before (here) and it was similar to that but even better in our opinion!

What you need:

Crescent Rolls (We used the Big & Flaky ones, 1 can made 7 muffins)
Bacon (4 pieces or more)
Eggs (5 for 7 muffins)
Grated Cheese

What to do:

Get out your muffin pan and spray it down good! Don't miss a spot. 

Preheat oven to 350.

Then open up the crescent dough and, one by one, place the triangles of dough into each muffin cup.

Some will hang over the edge. I just squished it down until it lined the whole cup and evened out.

Now, time to cook the bacon! We cooked ours in the microwave, but you can fry it too or bake it or however you normally cook bacon, do it that way!

Set the cooked bacon aside and scramble the eggs. Go ahead and salt and pepper them. You want to cook them until they are almost done, but leave them a tad bit runny because they will finish cooking in the oven.

Fill the cups with the scrambled eggs.

Top with bacon.

 Sprinkle with cheese.

Bake in the preheated oven for 15 to 18 minutes, until the crescent dough is golden brown and the cheese is melted.

Let them cool and enjoy!

Thanks again to Sarah for the inspiration for these yummy breakfast muffins!


  1. That looks so good!! I have to make this !!! Thanks for sharing this!!!

    1. Thanks Faith! They are really yummy! I hope you love them if you make them! : )

  2. I saw these on Pinterest too, but I was wondering if the eggs got chewey from being cooked twice. So, how was the chew factor? :)

    1. They weren't chewy at all! When you scramble them the first time you let them stay a little runny so that when they go into the oven they finish cooking. They were perfect and moist and yummy! : )

  3. Oh man, these look awesome!! Yummmmmmm
