Perfect On The Go Breakfast!

One of our first recipes, when we started Tasteaholics back in 2015, was a simple Mini Crustless Quiches recipe. We used to eat our mini quiches all the time since they were so great for bringing to work with us. As long as we had a microwave around us, we had a nutritious, filling breakfast even though we rushed out the door that morning.

Our mini quiche recipe is still super popular to this day! We know you all love the portability and low carb count, of course. These tasty Bacon, Egg & Cheese cups are no different. They’re quick to bake and you can enjoy them all week.

Bacon, Egg & Cheese Cups

As with most of our recipes, you can alter them to fit your tastes. Don’t like cheddar? Use mozzarella, or feta, or even brie! Feel free to use turkey bacon, salami or perhaps even mushrooms for a vegetarian spin. These Bacon Egg & Cheese Cups are so versatile!

And, since we know people are going to ask – yes, you can make 1 giant Bacon, Egg & Cheese Cup in the form of a pie! Just lay that bacon along the bottom of your pan, prebake it a bit in the oven and assemble one giant cup! Use a pie pan, cheesecake pan or small casserole dish (note: depending on your bakeware, you may need to double the ingredients)!

Ingredients
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach (thawed, drained)
  • 12 strips bacon
  • 1/3 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt, pepper
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.

  5. In a large bowl, crack and lightly beat 12 eggs.
  6. Wring out any extra water from the spinach beforehand with a clean kitchen towel or paper towel. Stir the spinach into the eggs,
  7. Scoop 1/4 cup of egg mixture into each muffin well, filling them up about 3/4 of the way.
