Your New Favorite Breakfast Egg Muffin Recipe

These little egg bites are all about simplicity, and they're about to become your new best friend on busy mornings.


Units Scale
  • 12 eggs
  • 4 tbsp milk
  • 4 tbsp pesto
  • 1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup arugula
  • 2 cooked pieces of thick cut bacon
  • Salt & pepper
  • Red chili flakes


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prep the muffin tin by spraying it with a nonstick oil of your choice. Using my microwave bacon recipe, cook the bacon. 
  2. In each muffin tin, add a small bunch of the arugula, then crack an egg in each muffin tin. If you would prefer to mix all of the ingredients in a bowl beforehand and then pour them into the tins until they are full, please do so. Skip to step 5.
  3. Next, season with salt, pepper, and red chili flakes; add in the milk, 1 teaspoon to each well at a time; and whisk.
  4. Top with a sprinkle of cheese, a few bacon crumbles, and a teaspoon of pesto in each muffin tin and whisk.
  5. Bake in the oven for 19 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Once the egg muffins are cool, using a knife, cut around the sides of the egg muffins to remove them from the muffin tin.
