Jalapeno Popper Egg Cups
#1
Heart 
Jalapeno Popper Egg Cups
    12 strips Bacon
  • 8 large Eggs

  • 4 oz. Cheddar Cheese

  • 3 oz. Cream Cheese

  • 4 medium Jalapeno Peppers, de-seeded and chopped

  • 1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

  • 1/2 tsp. Onion Powder

  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


Directions:

1. Get all ingredients ready. Measure out all cheese and grate as needed. Prep the jalapenos by seeding and chopping them. Save 1 jalapeno that you can cut into rings as a garnish for the top. Preheat oven to 375F.

2. Par-cook bacon so it’s semi crisp but still pliable. Save bacon grease in the pan.

3. Using a hand mixer, mix together eggs, cream cheese, chopped and seeded jalapeno peppers, leftover bacon grease, garlic powder, onion powder, and salt and pepper to taste.

5. Pour egg mixture into the wells of the muffin tin. Make sure you only go about half-way to 2/3 way up as they rise quite a lot. Oh! This is the reason you only see 4 muffins in the following pictures – I overfilled the first batch of 12 and they turned into Frankenstein muffins.

6. Add cheddar cheese on the top of the muffin, then a jalapeno. Cook at 375F for 20-25 minutes.

7. Once cooked, remove from the oven to let cool. They will slowly deflate and give you a great treat.

8. Serve and enjoy!
