These buffalo egg cups with bacon are your ticket to a quick and easy low carb breakfast!
If you've been following me for any amount of time, especially on Instagram, you know, I am an absolute lover of buffalo omelettes.
Over time I've gotten better, but sometimes I just can't get the flip down when making them, so I found a quick and easy, equally delicious alternative!
Buffalo Egg Cups
They are ridiculously simple to make, and even if you've tried them before, there's one new thing I tried that makes a world of a difference.
You can easily line the muffin cups with the raw bacon and set it to bake with the egg mixture. Doing so releases all kinds of yummy bacon-y flavor, making the final product even more satisfying.
I also love the gooey, runny, cream cheese in the center! Who wouldn't!?
Here's how I make 12 egg cups at a time:Print
- 12 eggs
- 12 strips of bacon (uncooked)
- 4 ounces of cream cheese
- ⅔ cup of cheddar cheese
- ¼ Cup Buffalo Sauce
- Salt and Pepper
- In one bowl beat together 12 large eggs with salt & pepper.
- Line each muffin cup with 1 strip of uncooked bacon
- Separate eggs into muffin tin and place in the oven for 10 minutes at 375 degrees.
- In a separate bowl combine 4 ounces of cream cheese and ⅔ cup of cheddar cheese. Microwave this for 30 seconds, mix, and add ¼ Cup of buffalo sauce
- When that 10 minute oven timer goes off, put 1-2 teaspoon of your cheesy mixture in the center of each (still wet) egg cup.
- Return egg cups to oven for 15 minutes or until cooked through.
