These bacon and gruyere egg bits are so yummy and easy to make for an on the go breakfast!


  • 9 large eggs or 11 medium
  • 2/3 cup cottage cheese
  • 1 ½ cups Gruyere cheese, shredded or grated
  • ¾ cup bacon, cooked and diced or crumbled
  • ½ teaspoon salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly spray your muffin pan with the non-stick cooking spray. Place lower oven rack in the bottom position. Carefully add the boiling water. Move another rack to the middle position. Close the oven door.
  2. Steps 1-2: In a large mixing bowl, add your eggs. Using an electric stand or hand mixer, beat the eggs until they are light and fluffy. Add in the cottage cheese and beat until blended. Mix in 1 cup of the Gruyere cheese and the salt.
  3. Steps 3-4:  Place your prepared muffin pan on a flat surface. Sprinkle the bacon in the muffin tin, making sure to divide as evenly as possible. Add about 1 tablespoon of the Gruyere cheese into the muffin tin, dividing as evenly as you can.
  4. Step 5: Add your egg mixture into the muffin pan. For my muffin pan it took just a little over ¼ cup each. Place the muffin pan in the oven. Cook for 25-35 minutes, turning once mid-baking time.
  5. Step 6: Place the cooked egg bites on a cooling rack. Using a knife, carefully go around each egg bite. Using the knife or a spoon, lift the eggs out and place on a serving plate. Enjoy!
  6. Makes 12 egg bites
