Bacon, egg & cheese "cupcakes"

How cute are these little guys!?!  I saw these HERE and decided to give them a try.  I love when I see something online and I go into my kitchen and discover I have everything to make it.

So I'm not sure if you noticed, but I have a soft spot for cupcakes.  What's not to love about individual treats that are cute and tasty??  Well this is all of your favorite things about breakfast in a cupcake costume.  When Mr. B took a look at his plate he was like, "well what are these little goodies?"  Once he cut one open he actually gasped, "It's even more spectacular when you cut it open!"  Yeah, that much enthusiasm out of him & I know it was a success!  

These don't really require a recipe, just some assemblage and preparation of ingredients.  The amount you need will vary depending on the number of mouths you are feeding:

Biscuit Dough - Homemade, from a boxed mix, or premade will do.  If you are going the easy route (why not go that route??) and want to use premade, do me a favor... STOP buying the canned refrigerator biscuits.  The frozen ones are SO much better!  They taste almost like homemade (unlike the canned ones) and you can pull 2 or 10 out of the bag and back into the freezer they go. *For this recipe pull them out and let them defrost while you get the rest of the ingredients together.

Eggs - Prepair however you usually make your breakfast scrambled eggs.  My tip, low and slow makes soft creamy eggs.  No hard rubbery eggs here!

Breakfast meat of your choice - You can use bacon, ham, or sausage, or even a combination.  I went with bacon.  Chopped and fully cooked.

Cheese - Use any chees you have on hand.  I chose grated colby jack.

Pre heat oven to 350 degrees.  Roll out one biscuit, and top with your prepared toppings.  Crimp seams together creating a stuffed dough ball.  Place in lined cupcake pans seam side down.

I sprayed the tops with a little bit of olive oil and a light sprinkling of sea salt.  Bake 15 min or until golden brown.

How cute is this!  Give them a try, your Mr and/or your littles will be glad you did! Enjoy!


  1. Sounds yummy! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Ohhh, good idea!! I love how simple this seems :o)

  3. do u know how many calories it is?

  4. I was wondering if I could use pancake mix as the "muffin" base instead of biscuits, for a sweeter twist.

  5. What a good idea! Your recipes look great, I'd love to feature them on our site If you're interested in learning more, please email me at

    Have a great day!

  6. These look absolutely fantastic - I can't wait to try them myself. One problem though, I live in the UK and we don't have ready made biscuit dough available (biscuits over here are more what you call cookies I believe). Do you have any suggestions of a recipe for me to make my own biscuit dough? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  7. Do they reheat good?

  8. Great idea here. Problem in UK not having ready-made buiscuit dough? So easy to make, even I can do it! Not to mention "better & cheaper..."
