I’ve been making these egg muffin cups for the last few weeks. I bake them in muffin tins as soon as I come home from the grocery store.
It’s now become part of our current weekly routine and it’s likely to stay that way for a while, since my husband and I look forward to our homemade egg “mcmuffins”.

Absolutely! In fact, please add in some finely chopped vegetables as well! Increase your baking time to about 20 minutes though to ensure it is completely cooked.

How to Serve Baked Eggs
We typically serve them egg mcmuffin style. We’ve tried placing the baked eggs on bagels, english muffins and regular bread slices and found that it’s the perfect fit for an english muffin, since you’re able to get a bite of egg every time.
To make our breakfast sandwiches, cut a toasted english muffin in half. Place the egg and a slice of cheese on top. Close the sandwich and microwave it for about 45 seconds. It is perfectly warm and gooey every time. And best of all, breakfast is served hot and ready in the time it takes me to pour a cup of coffee.
Here are a couple of different ways I like to serve them
- Diced with pre-made rice and salsa. It’s like a little breakfast burrito bowl that comes together in about a minute!
- In a bowl with sliced red peppers, cucumbers and tomatoes.
- With mix-ins like sautéed mushrooms, onions, and peppers.
- With a batch of hash browns and the muffin tin egg on the top.
- Place a hot egg on top of a thick slice of beef steak tomato and salt and pepper to top it off.
- Place an egg on a plate and add slices of avocado on top.
- Alone – no fuss. Even though they’re only seasoned with salt and pepper, the baked eggs are pretty tasty on their own and sometimes we just like to eat one or two individually for breakfast.
This is a huge time and money saver – one minute of work (cracking the eggs into the muffin tins & adding salt & pepper) saves us the temptation of going to the drive-thru for breakfast (not that it’s a regular thing around here – but we’re easily tempted on busy mornings) and we save a nice chunk of change in the process.
