When I mixed up this particular batch of muffins, I actually put them in the fridge overnight. Next morning I popped a couple in the microwave, and they were good to go.

Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Muffin Cups are so easy to make. Here’s how!

Cook your bacon first. While it’s cooking, you can chop up the pepper and tomatoes.

Once the bacon is fully cooked, crumble it up.

Beat the eggs, heavy whipping cream, salt, and pepper together with a fork or whisk. Add in the chopped pepper, tomatoes, basil, crumbled bacon, and shredded cheese, mixing it all together well.

Spray your muffin tin with cooking spray.

If you choose to use crescent rolls, tear each one into a piece large enough to press into each muffin cup. If not, just skip this step.

Then pour the egg mixture into each muffin cup, filling ’til each cup is about 3/4 of the way full.

Bake at 375° for about 30 minutes or until egg is set and cooked thru.
