Hectic mornings are often a grab-and-go affair. Coffee? Yes! Breakfast… maybe? A latte drive-through– only if the line isn’t too long.

I’m sure you know what I mean!

Homemade breakfasts are often relegated to the weekend… and weekday morning meals are a bonus.

I have several egg bite and quick breakfast ideas at 31Daily. Probably because it is a challenge to get my family fed and out-the-door, with somewhat healthy options.

Drive through coffee is most definitely part of our lives. Which is I why I was experimenting with this particular egg bites recipe. A Starbucks Bacon Gouda Breakfast Sandwich is my son’s go-to morning morning meal.

And he is in love with egg bites. So it was a natural to begin making them at home, ready for flying-out-the-door mornings and most definitely snacks later in the day.

Ingredients for Bacon Gouda Egg Bites

Exact ingredient measurements are in the recipe card below.

  • Cooked bacon, crumbled: For a quick fix, you can buy already cooked bacon at the market.
  • Large eggs: beaten
  • Milk: Dairy milk or milk of choice. If you’re using almond milk, my family likes the sweetened almond milk best in this recipe.
  • Shredded Cheese: I’m using Gouda, which has a delicious smokey flavor, but Gruyere, cheddar, or even mozzarella is delicious too.
  • Seasoning: salt and pepper to taste and a pinch of red pepper flakes.

  1. I really want to try this recipe! Have you tried freezing them? I’m hoping to make a bunch to have an easy/mess free breakfast for kids before school. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi Kris— I have frozen these! They freeze well and are perfect for quick breakfasts or snacks. I like to thaw in the refrigerator overnight and then gently reheat in the microwave. But sometimes when mornings get hectic, I will defrost in the microwave and then also gently reheat for a few seconds.
