Pintester: Turkey Bacon Egg Cups

I found a recipe on Pinterest that I actually had the ingredients and the gumption to prepare! Shocking. I feel like the Pintester.

On Sunday night, I caught a bought of insomnia and stayed up too late looking at recipes on Pinterest. Go figure.

I found a recipe for bacon egg cups and thought: “My husband sure would like to have a delicious breakfast ready for him when he wakes up for work in the morning.”

So I woke up at 6 a.m., which is not usual… I usually crawl out of bed at 7 a.m. and still get to work on time. (I shower in the evening and don’t work too hard to style my hair.)

But on Monday morning, I forced myself awake to function and began breakfast! (Thankfully, I purchased more coffee on my Sunday grocery trip. Two days without coffee? Me? Oh, no, no, no.)

I had to half the recipe because I didn’t have enough eggs, and because my husband and I wouldn’t have been able to finish off 12 bacon eggs cups in one morning. No way. Here are my alterations…

Turkey Bacon Egg Cups

  • 6 slices of turkey bacon
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup (ish) shredded marble cheddar cheese
  • bit o’ salt and pepper


Spray six muffin tin cups with cooking spray with olive oil. (I don’t actually know if it matters what kind of cooking spray you use, but I want to be accurate.)

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Combine the eggs, cheese and bit o’ salt and pepper (this is me being accurate) in a mixing bowl and whisk until combined.

Wrap turkey bacon slices around the inside of the muffin tin cups. Add about 3/4 of the eggs mixture per cup.

Bake for approximately 14 minutes. When I halved the recipe, I halved the bake time, but my new gas oven is apparently SUPER efficient and the cups were done in 14! I might have actually cooked them a little too long.

Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast! So fluffy. Cooking in the a.m. for the win!

I tweeted this picture…

recipe for turkey bacon egg cups…and received some lovely responses from a Twitter follower (who I’ve met in person once) and my dear friend Julia!

I love that girl… I’m the Highlander! I’m going to put on a kilt and scream off a cliff now…

I’ve had some decently successful recipes lately. Too bad I’m WAY too distracted to remember to take pictures.

Why did I use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon? I had turkey bacon… and it’s better for me than regular bacon… or some junk like that…

I miss real bacon.

Any good breakfast recipes cookin’ up in your kitchen?
