How To Make Savoury Egg Muffins

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
  2. Combine eggs, heavy cream, dry mustard powder, and pepper. The cream will help fluff up the eggs, creating a fluffier Savoury Egg Muffin.
  3. Grease muffin tin with cooking spray or olive oil. You don’t want your Savoury Egg Muffins to stick!
  4. Divide the bacon, cheese, and green onions between the cups and pour the egg mixture on top. 
  5. Bake 20-25 minutes or until eggs are set. They’ll puff up and will sink down a bit once they cool. 

Serve immediately or refrigerate for up to three days.


These are suggestions for variations, but the options are endless. Be creative and jazz up your Savoury Egg Muffins to tantalise your tastebuds.

  • Veggies – Spinach, Bell Peppers, Peppadew Peppers, Mushrooms, or Jalapeños for a bit of zing
  • Cheese – Replace Cheddar Cheese with Feta or Mozzarella Cheese
