Bacon and eggs with a side of baked beans, all from a cup? That's my idea of a dream breakfast! So easy, so delicious, so YUM!

    1 hr 15 mins

    1 hr 30 mins

  • Yields: 3 but can be multiplied


3 regular coffee mugs to cook in

1 x 550g can of your favourite baked beans (I like Heinz BBQ)

100g diced bacon raw, or browned if you prefer that but I use raw

Cracked black pepper

Garlic powder

3/4 cup grated tasty cheese

3 eggs

3 tsp chives, finely chopped


This recipe is for 3 cups, but you can increase or decrease ingredients to suit however many mugs you wish to cook


1Line bottom of slow cooker with baking paper or paper towel, just to protect surface from the mugs scratching it.

2Divide baked beans into 3 mugs, divide bacon between mugs also.

3Add cracked black pepper to taste and a sprinkle of garlic powder to each mug.

4Mix contents of each mug to combine, then place mugs into slow cooker

5Add 2 cups of warm tap water into the bowl to surround the mugs (it doesn’t not have to reach any certain height on cups)

6Cook on HIGH for 45mins with tea towel trick in place

7Check that the contents of each mug is nicely warmed to your liking

8Add ¼ cup of grated cheese to each mug, crack 1 egg onto cheese then sprinkle with chives

9Continue to cook on HIGH, still with tea towel in place, for approx. 30 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your liking.

10Enjoy breakfast straight from the mug, with toast soldiers on the side 🙂
