Tips and tricks

  • Whisk your eggs and milk together well before pouring them into the muffin tin. This will help ensure that each egg muffin has an even distribution of ingredients.
  • Add a pinch of baking powder to the egg mixture for extra rise and fluffiness (optional).
  • Don’t overfill the muffin cups. Fill each muffin cup about 3/4 full with the egg mixture. Overfilling the cups can cause the egg to overflow and create a mess in your oven.
  • To make clean-up easier, consider using silicone muffin liners, paper cupcake forms or spraying the muffin tin with cooking spray before pouring in the egg mixture.

Calories 139 kcal


  • 7 eggs
  • 100 ml milk
  • red bell pepper
  • 6-7 cherry tomatoes
  • 1/5 broccoli
  • 90 g small bacon cubes
  • Cheese for topping
  • Salt&Pepper
  • Chilli powder (optional)


  • Begin by preparing your ingredients: chop the red bell pepper into small cubes, cut the stems off the broccoli and halve the large florets so that they’re about 1 cm in size, cut the cherry tomatoes into quarters, grate the cheese, and cut the bacon into 1 cm cubes.
  • Fry the bacon in a pan until it turns golden brown, then place it on a paper towel to drain off any excess grease.
  • Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F) and prepare your cupcake trays by lining them with paper cupcake cups.
  • Place 2-3 broccoli florets, 3-4 red pepper cubes, 2 pieces of cherry tomatoes, and 4-6 pieces of bacon in the bottom of each paper cup.
  • To make the egg mixture, crack the eggs into a mixing bowl, pour in the milk, add salt and pepper, and mix everything together using a hand mixer until the mixture becomes fluffy.
  • Pour the egg mixture over the vegetables and top with grated cheese.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. The mixture should rise before finishing cooking, but if it doesn’t, leave it in the oven for a couple more minutes.
