A wise man named Ron Swanson once said, “Give me all the bacon and eggs you have.” What better way to eat bacon and eggs than to put them all together with cheese and an English muffin. The crispy bacon, melty cheese, and runny yolk is a breakfast lover’s dream combination.

This recipe is surprisingly easy, extremely satisfying, and sure to get your day off to a great start. It’s also customizable. I used Oscar Mayer bacon, cage-free eggs, Cabot mozzarella cheese, and Thomas English muffins, but you can use your favorite brand or whichever brand is easiest to get a hold of. These muffins are a must-try recipe, and it’s hard to have just one.

    Cook the bacon enough that it’s cooked but still flexible.

    #SpoonTip: If you’re using precooked bacon, keep it in the pan until it’s warm and still flexible.

    Put a slice of bacon in each muffin cup so it forms a “wall” for the egg and cheese.

  • Step 6

    Add roughly a half a tablespoon or as much as your heart desires of shredded cheese in each muffin cup – just make sure theres enough room for the egg! I used Cabot mozzarella, but you can use any shredded cheese.
