Bacon Quiche Cup

Bacon Quiche Cup

Here’s an easy Easter quiche. That isn’t so … “quiche-y.”

But still fancy and flavorful.

Call them quiche cups, egg muffins, cupcakes, bacon-wrapped nests, bacon-and-egg-vortices….etc. It makes no difference. They’re going in your belly!

Kids will eat this because it’s a colorful cupcake. Men will eat it because it’s wrapped in bacon.

If they haven’t already filled up on their Easter Bacon Baskets filled with my Bacon Chocolate Rees-ter Eggs, that is.

    Wow, that’s a brilliant idea! never saw it anywhere and I sure will try it. I’m thinking it could also be great with some tomatoes inside – a twist on BLT, one of my favorite sandwiches…

    Has an attempt been made to assemble them overnight?

    • hi Angie,

      I have sauteed the veggies and combined them with the egg mixture the night before!

      but I would be careful about cooking the whole thing the night before tho — esp if you enjoy crispier bacon — the eggs will likely soggy the bacon overnight 😉

    🙂 church event, I have four ovens and a team of people to assist me!

    Have you tried dredging the bacon in brown sugar and chili powder, and baking the bacon? I might do a trial run combining that method with your recipe….. It will either be really good, or really bad. The bacon chili powder method is pure awesomeness though!
    Again, thanks for the recipe idea and super fast replies!!

    • that sounds delish!

      I’ve sweet-rubbed once and hot sauce marinated once, but never the combined the sweet and hot! But my mouth is watering — so I’d predict it a hit!

      love to hear how it goes for you! best of luck for your church event! 🙂

    I had to share this with you…. I found some jalapeño bacon at HEB… I used it for my trial run today, words cannot express how good the were, I added a little bit of Irish cheddar to the eggs and some of my house seasoning. They were perfect!

Leave Some Bacon Love!
