Breakfast Cupcakes With Bacon

I was woken up today by 3 children, none of which are mine (where are they all coming from?).  One yells at the T.V because he’s losing a game on Xbox and the other two were just being kids.  I go outside to see whats going on and they make sure to let me know that they’re hungry… little $#*^s.  That means I have to make something simple and fast or they will become more and more annoying, and then the fighting and crying starts. #Parenthood.

Go head and laugh at my pain,  my girlfriend does too… Oh and guess what?  Shes hungry too! Ha ha ha ha! Grrrr…

Making breakfast is a pain, because everyone wants there eggs a certain way, the bacon has to be made separately. Of course, there’s quite a few ingredients missing from my fridge this morning.

So with the limited ingredients I made some mini-breakfast cupcakes with bacon, actually with turkey bacon! But I will tell you right now, you will not notice the difference in the bacon at all!

Ingredients left to work with:

  1. Jar of minced garlic
  2. 5 Eggs
  3. Unopened package of Maple turkey bacon
  4. Ground black pepper
  5. 1 month old shredded cheese (hey, it looked like it was still good.)
  6. mini-cup cake pan


  • Set your stove to 350 and start the preheating process
  • Take a couple strips of bacon and cut them in half, and make an X out of the bacon in the cup cake pan. You can spray butter or a little canola oil, but the bacon has a little oil in it already so you kind of don’t have to worry that they will stick. But if you think it will help knock, yourself out!

  • In a measuring cup I cracked 5 eggs, and added black pepper and garlic (but fill them with anything really… carrots, olives, spinach, tomatoes, onions, caramelized onions, peppers, feta cheese, beef, chicken, pork, sea food) and mix together.
