  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • 10 eggs
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon basil
  • 1 cup cheddar or Colby Jack cheese
  • 1 can crescent rolls optional


  • Cook the bacon first.
  • Meanwhile, chop up the pepper and tomatoes.
  • Once the bacon is fully cooked, let it cool; then 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 each muffin cup 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 the egg is set and cooked thru.
  • Serve and enjoy the Breakfast Muffin Cups while they're warm! Or you can let them cool, refrigerate overnight, and warm them up the next morning!
