Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. We all know this. But we all also like sleep. And when you’re choosing between waking up early to make a delicious hot breakfast or hitting snooze, well, those extra minutes of sleep usually win.

That’s why meal prepping breakfast is such a good idea. You can make it ahead of time, when you have a little more time, then just heat it up in the morning before work. That just makes life so much easier.

One of our favorite make ahead breakfast recipes is this Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites recipe.

They’re sort of similar to the egg bites Starbucks sells. The flavors are different and the cooking method is different, but they’re similar in shape, size, and practicality.

Ours are better because they’re homemade and a lot more budget-friendly. But they’re also so much easier. The Starbucks version uses a sous vide technique, which isn’t really necessary. So since we skip that, we make these easier.

We also make these easier by using a FinaMill, the world’s first spice grinder with interchangeable pods. We’ll chat a little about it after the recipe — where you’ll get to enter for a chance to win one, so definitely check that out.

Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites Recipe

Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites Ingredients:

How To Make Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites:

Pre-heat the oven to 325 F.

Two pieces of bacon in a pan.

Make your bacon. Set it aside to cool completely. Break it into crumbles when it cools.

Six eggs in a bowl.

Add the eggs into a bowl.

Heavy cream pouring into a bowl with six eggs in it.

Add the heavy cream and mix.

Side note: If you don’t have heavy cream, you can use milk although these taste a little more rich when you use heavy cream.

Mozzarella cheese on top of an egg mixture in a white bowl with a spoon in it.

Shred the mozzarella cheese into the egg mixture and stir.

Green onion on top of an egg mixture in a white bowl with a spoon in it.

Cut the green onion into small pieces. Add them into the egg mixture and stir.

Crumbled bacon on top of an egg mixture in a white bowl with a spoon in it.

Add your crumbled bacon into the mixture and stir.

Egg mixture in a bowl.

Add your seasonings. This is a great place to use the FinaMill. Stir until combined.

Egg mixture pouring from a bowl into a silicone baking mold.

Take a silicone baking mold and set it on top of a cookie sheet. Make sure one of the ends of the molds lies on the edge of the cookie sheet to keep it flat.

Divide the mixture between the six cavities in the mold.

Bake for 30 minutes.

The egg cups will rise above the pan as they cook but will quickly deflate after the baking mold is removed from the oven.

Bacon And Cheese Egg Bites: Frequently Asked Questions

Can you use packaged cheese?

Any time you have a recipe that requires cheese to melt, shredding your own block of cheese is the way to go.

See, packaged pre-shredded cheese has preservatives in it that keep it from clumping together in the bag. But, those same preservatives prevent it from melting really well.

So, we always recommend shredding your own cheese. If you only have pre-shredded cheese, that’s fine, but you’ll want to make sure you use a tightly packed (not a loose packed) 2 oz. when making these.

Do you have to make these in a baking mold?

The silicone baking mold we use for these makes them so incredibly easy. You don’t need to prepare it in any way. It doesn’t have to be buttered because it’s non-stick as is. So you just pour the egg mixture in and the egg bites pop out when they’re done.

And no egg is left behind, so clean up is so incredibly easy.

If you don’t have this silicone baking mold, I highly recommend you purchase one. You can use it in this recipe and you can use it to make hot chocolate bombs or tartufo as well.

If you don’t want to buy a mold, you can use a muffin pan. Personally, I don’t recommend it because you need grease the muffin pan and then there’s still a chance of the egg getting stuck in the pan, resulting in a lot of messy clean up for you.

Can you make a version of Vegan Egg Bites?

As long as you use plant based products, like Just Egg for the eggs, plant based cheese, and nut milk, you can make a vegan version of these. Just keep in mind that vegan products may cook a little differently, so you may have to adjust your cooking time.

How do you store leftover Egg Bites?

One of the best things about these Egg Bites is that you can make a bunch at once and eat them for breakfast over the week.

To store them, put the cooled Egg Bites in an air tight container in the fridge. They’ll stay fresh for up to a week.

How do you reheat Egg Bites?

Put an egg bite on a plate and microwave it on high for 30 seconds. Flip it so it’s laying on its side, and microwave for an additional 30 seconds.

Egg Bites Varieties:

You can make these egg bites your own by experimenting with your favorite flavors. Our four favorite alternative versions are below.

Four Cheese Egg Bites

Swap out the bacon and green onions and add Feta, cheddar, and Parmesan cheese in its place. Don’t forget to keep the mozzarella cheese to make this a four cheese version.

Greek Egg Bites

Add Feta, olives, and tomatoes to eggs, heavy cream, and seasoning to make a Greek omelet version of these egg bites.

Meat Lovers Egg Bites

Add cooked breakfast sausage crumbles and small cubes of ham to the egg mixture, in addition to the bacon, to make a meat lovers version of these egg bites.

Vegetarian Egg Bites

Skip the bacon and instead, just add cheese and green onions to your mixture.

Air Fryer Breakfast Empanadas with bacon and eggs are an easy make ahead breakfast idea. Make them, freeze them, then heat when you're ready.

FinaMill spice grinder.

FinaMill Spice Grinder Review And Giveaway:

Let’s talk about the FinaMill Spice Grinder. Like I mentioned above, it’s the world’s first spice grinder with interchangeable pods. It’s one of those kitchen gadgets that just make so much sense, especially if you have older relatives. Seriously, I’m ordering one for all of our older relatives for Christmas.

The FinaMill is a battery-operated spice grinder. It requires three AA batteries that are put into the handle portion of the grinder.

The basic FinaMill comes with two reusable pods. Each pods holds a little over 2 ounces of spice. It does take a little finesse to open the pod the first time, but after that, it’s really easy. Fill the pod with spices, set it on a stackable tray, and it’s ready when you are.

Hold the FinaMill over the pod, push down, and the pod easily snaps into place. Push the button on the handle of the FinaMill and the spices grind and are added directly onto your food. When you’re done, a gentle push on the pod will unlatch it.

What’s great is if there’s no pod in the FinaMill, the button won’t push. So that really extends the battery life. What’s also great is you can adjust the coarseness of the grind at the bottom of the pod. So if you want a finer grind, you can adjust it.

There are three different pods (we only have two types) for typical spices (like salt and pepper), oily seeds (like flax seed), or for hard cheeses.

For us, this is pretty convenient. But for our older relatives who want the deliciousness of fresh ground spices (honestly, it makes such a difference) but who just don’t have the wrist strength to crank grinders, this is perfect.
