How to Make Easy Cheesy Bacon Egg Breakfast Bites

This recipe requires hard-boiled eggs. I don’t know about you, but to me, hard boiling eggs isn’t a fast process. You have to bring the water to a boil, put the eggs in, bring it back to a boil, then shut the heat off, wait seventeen minutes, then drain into an ice bath until the eggs are cool enough to handle. Then comes the daunting task of peeling the eggs.

You could do all of that, if you want to. Here’s my method for hard-cooking eggs for use in any recipe requiring the chopped hard cooked eggs. Fill a pot half full of water (the size of the pot is dependent on the number of eggs you wish to cook). Generally speaking, a 2-quart saucepan is more than sufficient for a dozen eggs.

Add a sprinkle of salt, heat until boiling. While the water is coming to a boil, crack the number of eggs you desire into a bowl. Since we were making a single batch of easy cheesy bacon egg breakfast bites, we’ve used six eggs for this example.

Gently pour the eggs into the boiling water. Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Keep an eye on the eggs as you don’t want them to boil over on the stove, making a mess. If necessary, reduce the heat slightly.

Once the eggs are hard cooked (and the yolk is firm and cooked through), pour the eggs in a colander to drain. Let them rest 2-3 minutes to cool.

To chop eggs quickly and with very minimal effort, place a cooling rack directly over a bowl.

Place the hard-cooked egg on the cooling rack and press it through the rack. This creates perfectly diced hard-cooked eggs.

If the eggs are still hot, you can use a flat cover, such as a Tupperware cover on top of the egg to push it through. Just place the egg on the cooling rack above the bowl, place a flat cover on top and press down firmly to push the egg through.

If you want to make these into grab and go bites, such as for tailgating, or feeding a wrestling team (or other sport team), cut them into quarters or eighths, (like a pie). This makes them truly bite size.

Other Notes: This recipe calls for cooked and crumbled bacon. We usually bake bacon to ensure it’s perfectly cooked every time. However, if you’re in a hurry, you can also use real bacon bits. The equivalent of one slice of bacon is one tablespoon. For a twelve ounce package of bacon, use 3/4 to 1 cup of real bacon bits.
