4 stars - based on 5 reviews
| 5 Reviews

Bacon egg cups are so easy yet satisfying. They are the perfect way to start your day! Recipe courtesy Nam Nguyen of The Culinary Chronicles.

Servings: 2

Active time: 7 minutes

Total time:


  • 4 slices, thick cut bacon
  • 4 Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized egg(s)
  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • kosher salt and black pepper to taste
  • 2 Tbsp chopped scallions


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Par cook the bacon slices by frying them for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
  3. Spray a metal muffin pan with cooking spray. Taking one slice of bacon at a time, wrap the inside of a muffin cup to create a ring. Repeat with the remaining slices of bacon.
  4. Carefully crack one egg into each bacon lined cup. Sprinkle each egg with thyme leaves, parmesan cheese, kosher salt and pepper. Bake the egg cups for 10-15 minutes until the centers have set. You can adjust the cooking time based on how you prefer the consistency of your egg yolks.
  5. Carefully remove the bacon egg cups to a plate. Sprinkle the tops with the scallions and serve immediately with your choice of sides such as toast points, crispy potatoes or green salad.

Delicious! Cooked for around 13 mins on 225 degrees. Taste really good and really easy!!

I omitted the thyme. Cooking for 15 minutes renders a very well-done egg, though it was still pliable. Good taste, though! I used freshly grated Parmesan Reggiano, about 1 T.

Pasteurized equals peace of mind

Davidson's Safest Choice® pasteurized eggs taste great and are safe for all your favorite egg dishes! Davidson's gentle water bath pasteurization reduces the risk of Salmonella in eggs without changing the nutrition or flavor. In fact, Davidson's pasteurized eggs have earned the Seal of Approval for exceptional flavor and culinary performance from the American Culinary Federation (ACF).

The Raw Egg Risk

Davidson's eggs aren't just good for sunny-side up or poached eggs. Consider all the recipes that feature raw eggs, like eggnog, Caesar salad dressing, raw cookie dough, custard and more. Take homemade ice cream, for example. Over a four-year period, more than 500 illnesses in the US were traced to Salmonella bacteria in homemade ice cream, according to the CDC. The ingredient at fault? Raw or undercooked eggs.
