Breakfast Cupcakes

These Breakfast Cupcakes are so easy to make and are always a family favorite. If it has the word "cupcake" in it, my kids will of course, eat it for dinner.

I have always loved breakfast foods.  I make “breakfast for dinner” at least once a week. It’s just so quick and simple, and everyone always loves it.

I know it’s going to be a “good mom” night when my kids love their dinner, and look forward to eating it, and that’s exactly what these breakfast cupcakes are.

My new favorite has got to be these breakfast cupcakes.  They have all of my favorite breakfast foods like bacon, eggs, and hash browns all cooked together in one delicious “cupcake.”

If you have picky eaters, this is a recipe I highly recommend trying. My family goes crazy for these.

sneak in extra veggies:

The other thing I love about this recipe, is how easy it is to sneak in extra veggies. If you cut them up small enough, the kids won’t even be able to taste them.

Here are a few veggies we like to sneak in to our breakfast cupcakes:

  • spinach
  • carrot shreds
  • zucchini
  • green bell peppers
  • red bell peppers
  • yellow or orange bell peppers
  • red onion
  • chives
  • broccoli
  • cauliflower
  • peas

Really any veggie could be snuck into this recipe, and still taste amazing. With the meat and cheese, you won’t ever be able to taste it.

what other meat would be good in this?

Have you seen the Office episode where Michael Scott burns his foot on the George Foreman Grill, because he likes to wake up to the smell of crackling bacon?

I feel him. Because there is no better breakfast meat out there. I do love sausage, but this recipe would be absolutely amazing in this recipe.

We used sausage in this recipe, but if you are looking to switch it up, here are a few other meats that would taste delicious on this grilled cheese melt:

  • ground turkey
  • turkey sausage
  • beef sausage
  • pork sausage
  • ham
  • bacon
  • turkey bacon
  • Canadian bacon

You could also make it without meat, but my husband has converted me to be a carnivore at every meal. I love the meats.

  1. I'm so glad you posted your recipe, I have (2) of those small muffin tins that accomodate 24 per tin. I would take breakfast into work frequently and would always use a "wonton" as the base and fill it with the egg, cheese, bacon etc. We use alot of cilantro to give it a kick and or hot sauce, sour cream etc. Thanks from one foodie to another.
  2. Depending on why you want to replace it, you could use coconut oil(for health purposes), or with softened grass fed butter(for health, and taste). Just be sure to bake them below 350(remember to adjust cooking time) to prevent the healthy fats found in grass fed butter or coconut oil from oxidizing
  3. These look great, and quick, too! A great way to clean out the refrigerator, and yet make a great batch of pop-in-your mouth goodies. For some odd reason, the rating system shows one star based on 39 reviews. Odd. Going to make these tomorrow. Thank you for sharing!

    Is 30 oz bag of hash browns right? I just filled 12 muffin cups and still have more than half the hash browns leftover... Also should the hash browns really go to the top of each cup? In the photo it looks like they're just a thin crust at the bottom. Help!

    I didn't see an answer about using the entire 30 oz bag of hash browns? I'm getting ready to make these for my book club tomorrow. Also do you thaw the potatoes first and can these be made a day ahead and just reheated in a low oven?
    • You may have some hashbrowns left over. If you have extra you could make more or just cook them up! :) Our hashbrowns were just slightly thawed. They should be fine making them ahead of time and then just heat through before serving! Hope this helps.

    Just made these! I chickened out and didn't use the 30 oz of has browns. I used half and used 5 more eggs to make up for the difference. Awesome recipe! I recommend using a foil or parchment wrap if your going to store them.
