Camping recipe: Muffin Tin Eggs

Muffin Tin Eggs

This is a fun way to make eggs for a bunch of people at the same time, or make eggs for some people in a muffin tin and pancakes for others in the skillet. 

Serves: 6

6 strips of bacon
6 eggs
muffin tin

1. Cut each strip of bacon in half, making 12 pieces total.
2. Put 2 pieces of bacon into the bottom of each of the 6 muffin tin cups in a cross, making a little bacon "basket."
3. Place the muffin tin on the grill over the campfire and cook the bacon until done to your liking.
4. Crack an egg into each cup on top of the hot, cooked bacon and cook more until the eggs are done.

You can make fried and scrambled at the same time!

• On occasion I've been teased that all of my recipes contain bacon! Instead of bacon, you can cook the eggs in butter.
• This dish is especially nice with a few leaves of fresh spinach cooked between the eggs and the bacon.


  1. It looks like a great combination the bacon holding the eggs together and at the same time making the eggs not stick to the muffin pan.


  2. Yes, @Rick & it sticks to your ribs, too. ;)

  3. I was just about to say how this recipe reminds me of bacon and eggs in a paper bag...and then I saw your link! I've also made these putting a piece of bread in the bottom of the muffin tin as the "crust." Love it!

  4. @Wendy You could probably put anything in the bottom and add bacon & eggs & it would be delish. :)

  5. Ooooo I am thinking these on an english muffin with some cheese...YUM! Thank you for sharing!

  6. I never thought of cooking eggs this way! My wife bought these egg cooking silicon rings that work great on camping trips. We place 4 of the rings on a cast iron griddle and crack an egg into each. The eggs come out in a perfect circle and we place them on an English muffin, a slice of bread, or just eat them plain.

  7. This is great article, thank you for sharing

  8. I'm loving this recipe. I have been looking for a better way to cook eggs than I usual do when camping and this is it. A genius idea. They look amazing and are so simple to make.
