These Cheesy Bacon Mini Egg Muffins are the perfect make-ahead breakfast! Pop them in the freezer and reheat in a few seconds for breakfast on the go.

My son is a serious sleepyhead, and I still hesitate to wake him up most mornings. Although he’s not a baby any longer, the phrase “never wake a sleeping baby” is permanently lodged in my brain! Lucky for me, he wakes up hungry and loves homemade breakfast like these Mini Egg Muffins!

Over time, I discovered that these Mini Egg Muffins were not only a quick breakfast, they’re also useful for low carb meal prep, and even easy dinners! If my son didn’t like what we were having, I’d pop in a few of these egg bites from the freezer, add fruit and veggies, and dinner would be served.

“So excited these came out terrific! Thank you for the recipe. I followed your recipe using…shredded Parmesan & Swiss, ham, sausage lightly sautéed w/ garlic powder, chopped red pepper & green onion.”


I bake these in the oven with a mini muffin tin. In my opinion, this is the lowest maintenance way to make mini egg muffins without special equipment.

But, if you have a sous vide machine, you can use it to make these muffins into a copycat of Starbucks Sous Vide Egg Bites, with way less money than buying them there!

I love the custardy texture of their Bacon Gruyere Egg Bites, but honestly, I definitely do not like the price! They cost a small fortune. If you decide to make these in the sous vide, you will need a silicone mold for egg bites that seals and a bit more time. Use gruyere cheese and pop them in for about an hour at 145 degrees Fahrenheit, and allow to cool completely before popping them from the mold.

For this easy recipe, you will need:

  • Whole Eggs
  • Bacon
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Milk
  • Salt and Pepper


  • Substitute chopped deli ham or turkey for bacon. A great option for a healthy breakfast!
  • Add chopped red pepper or any color bell peppers, green onions, diced onion,
  • Substitute egg whites for some or all of the whole eggs. You will need roughly 2.5 cups of egg white or egg beaters solution.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of hot sauce for slightly spicy
  • Substitute unsweetened coconut milk for the milk.
  • I like to use cheddar cheese, gruyere cheese and pepperjack cheese. Truly, use the cheese you have on hand!

I love using this oversized mini muffin pan from Amazon. Having a pan with more cavities allows you to get this recipe done super quick!


Store them in the refrigerator in an airtight container or plastic bag for up to three days. These bacon egg bites will keep in the freezer for 2-3 months.
