All-Day Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffin Cups

I love egg 🍳 and I love bacon 🥓. I eat them together but not when they are clump up and cook together like this all-day cheddar bacon egg muffin cups. It was unbelievably good when I first made them. Then I made them again and I caught myself giving an automatic thumbs-up to these umami-ful muffins. I didn’t know it will be this good at first. I thought, heh it’s just bacon and egg. What more can you expect? Ohh plenty, man. Plenty! Perhaps one of the reasons these muffins are so moreish is because I made my own smoked bacon. Hehe.

I called this all-day muffins because you can eat it any time of the day whether it’s for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner or snack. Anytime you feel like grabbing a bite, go for this muffin. It’s also awesome for parties and picnic. Plus, it’s gluten-free, grain-free, paleo-friendly, keto-friendly and carnivore-friendly. When looking to buy bacon, make sure it doesn’t contain any chemicals and sweetener (if you’re following any diet).

Let’s cook.

Hickory Smoked Bacon
Homemade hickory smoked bacon. These are my last ones.

Bacon & Cheddar
Cooked bacon (not overly done or crispy) and sliced matured cheddar. I was being kiamsiap (stingy) with the cheddar. Don’t be like me. Add more!

Cheddar Bacon Egg Muffins Ready To Bake
In each muffin cup, line it with bacon. Nope, I didn’t grease the pan beforehand as I’m using non-stick. They do stick a little but just a little bit. Then add half of the cheddar slices by dividing them equally into each cup. Next, crack an egg and top up with the remaining half of the sliced cheddar (divide equally) into each cup. Sprinkle with pinches of salt and freshly cracked black pepper.

Bake at 170oC for 10-12 minutes. And that’s it. Very simple steps and even simpler ingredients but BIG flavors. Give it a go and let me know if you like it.
