Simple and delicious – the ultimate lazy weekend breakfast or brunch. These bacon & egg muffins not only taste delicious but they look great too! 

1 serving = 1 muffin. You might want to make 2 per person though – they are so good they are gone in seconds! 


  • 2 slices smoked bacon
  • 1 large eggs 
  • parsley or chives for garnish

Bacon & Egg Muffins Ingredients


1. Preheat the oven to 180C / 350F. Using a 6 hole muffin tin, press 2 pieces of bacon around the walls of each of one of the holes. Overlap is fine and they don’t need to cover the bottom of the tin.

2. Place in the oven for 10 minutes until the bacon has browned a little. Tip the fat that has collected in the bottom of the tin out (carefully so you don’t disturb the bacon cup).
