EASY WAYS TO CUSTOMIZE BREAKFAST CUPS

These breakfast cups are absolutely delicious. I know that a lot of families have picky eaters.

It is always helpful when a recipe is easy to customize for food allergies or picky eaters.

These bacon and egg cups are very easy to customize and make into something your family will love.

Here are some easy ideas for ingredients swaps so you can please all your family members!

  • Change out the cheddar cheese for pepper jack if you want the cups to be a little spicier.
  • If you don’t like bacon you could add some diced ham instead.
  • Families who don’t care for meat can leave the bacon off completely.
  • It is perfectly fine to add some veggies into these cups if you desire. Be sure not to add any liquid though…diced veggies are fine, but keep them diced very small.
  • Add a dash of cayenne pepper to bring the heat level up another notch.
  • If you are watching your salt intake use Mrs. Dash instead of salt.

HOW TO MAKE BACON AND EGG CUPS

I love that this easy breakfast recipe makes individual cups instead of a casserole. These reheat very well and are good for busy mornings!

STEP ONE: PREPARE PAN

Start off by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F.

Take a 12 cup muffin tin and grease it using non-stick cooking spray or butter.

STEP TWO: MAKE HASH BROWN MIXTURE

Take a large bowl and add the hash browns, one cup of cheese and the salt and pepper.

Stir these ingredients to combine them.

STEP FOUR: MAKE EGG MIXTURE

You can either rinse out the large bowl you used for the hash brown mixture or get a small bowl out.

Add the eggs, milk and hot sauce to the bowl. Whisk these together to they are well combined.

Pour the egg mixture evenly over the hash brown mixture in each muffin cup.

STEP FIVE: ADD TOPPINGS

Now take the remaining cheese and the cooked and chopped bacon pieces and sprinkle some of each on top of each muffin cup.

Place the muffin pan in the oven and bake for 12 to 15 minutes. Make sure the egg mixture is set up in the center and they are starting to brown on top.

Remove the pan from the oven and let them cool a little bit before serving.
