This Cheesy Breakfast Bacon Muffins recipe is versatile. We call them muffins, but you can make this recipe in an 8″x8″ pan and it’s a cheesy breakfast bacon frittata, add a crust to the pan before the egg mixture and you have a cheesy breakfast bacon quiche!
My family is divided. Half of the family likes the fluffy muffins, the other half prefers the frittata. I think they are strange because it’s exactly the same mixture, just different “molds”. This recipe will have photos of both.
We love it served with Mango Honey Smoothies!

Cheesy Breakfast Bacon Muffins Recipe Directions:
Cook the bacon. I save time and mess by cooking bacon in the oven.
While the bacon cooks, prepare your ingredients.
Cut the broccoli florets into 1/2-inch pieces.
Thinly slice green onion. I use the white part for the recipe and the green part as decoration.
Dice roasted red pepper.
Combine eggs with heavy cream 1/2-tsp salt, 1/4-tsp pepper and one-ounce cheese (you’ll use the rest of the cheese to top the muffins).
Spray your muffin tins (or 8×8 baking dish) with cooking spray.
Pre-Heat Oven to 375-degrees.
Fill muffin compartments 3/4 full with your egg mixture.
Top with broccoli, red pepper, green onion, bacon and remaining cheese. If you have
If you have leftover mixture, make a bonus muffin!
Here’s my muffin tin with various stages of the topping process.
Place muffin tin in oven and bake until muffins have slightly risen and are golden brown on top (18-20 minutes).
If you are making the 8×8 pan, you’ll bake for 20-22 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool 5-minutes.
Muffins will rise when cooking, then fall back down slightly as they cool. It’s normal.
Here is what the frittata looks like out of the oven and cooled.
Serve with a garnish of sour cream and green part of green onions.
These cheesy breakfast bacon muffins can be refrigerated and microwaved for a quick snack.
