Breakfast bubble up cups

February 27, 2018

There’s a new bubble up in town and I think you are all going to love these super easy and tasty breakfastย bubble up cups! They are great for meal prep and will freeze well. Feel free to add in extra veggies to suit you, I left out cheese to keep them low in points but I’m sure if you don’t mind the extra point cheese would be a great addition. I already have several ideas floating around this crazy head of mine for more “bubble up cup” creations ๐Ÿ™‚ Go make these now, I promise you won’t be disappointed, just 2 smart points each onย Weight Watchersยฎ freestyle.

Breakfast bubble up cups
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
2SP blue & purple, 3SP green/3PP each
  • 1- 7.5oz package of biscuits, see pic above, I buy mine at Walmart in the U.S
  • 6 eggs
  • ½ cup milk (I used 1%)
  • ¼ cup diced pepper (I used green)
  • ¼ cup diced onion (I used red onion)
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, diced
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400F, spray a regular size muffin tin with cooking spray *note- eggs are famous for sticking so spray well.
  2. Cut your 10 small biscuits into 6 pieces each, place the 6 pieces in each muffin cup, so you will have 10 breakfast cups in total.
  3. In a bowl mix your diced pepper, onion, tomato and garlic, divide over your 10 muffin cups.
  4. In a large measuring cup beat your eggs and milk together, add in salt & pepper.
  5. Pour egg mixture over your 10 biscuit/veggie cups and fill to the top.
  6. Bake in oven for 20-23 minutes until biscuits are baked through.
  7. Carefully remove from tin using a knife to scrape muffins out.
  8. Makes 10 breakfast cups, best stored in the fridge and will freeze well.

    would Pillsbury buttermilk biscuits be the same points? Can you post nutritional info for the ones you use so we can see if there is something comparable in ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ? Thank you!

        When I scan the biscuits I get that they 31 points for the package. I know the scanner is wrong sometimes.
        So just wondering how you are getting 17 points?

    Yes please post a Canadian equivalent for the biscuits. Or can you use 2 ingredient dough

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle March 2, 2018 at 12:03 pm

      You can still but Pillsbury biscuits here in Canada they are just a larger size so my advice would be to weigh out 7.5oz and use that, cut biscuits open then cut each piece into 6-8 small pieces, you can the 2ID but I know some used it for bubble up dishes and say it did not bake all through

    Reply Kathy E. February 27, 2018 at 9:05 pm

    These look delicious! I wonder how they’d turn out using the 2-ingredient dough that is so wildly popular on WW now? On my next day off, I think I’ll test this recipe out using that dough. Thanks so much!

    Hi I just tried making these but I couldnโ€™t use all the eggs as the cups were too full. Fully half the egg mix is left over. I used Pillsbury biscuits. Maybe they are larger than the biscuits you are using? I am using a regular sized muffin tin so not sure why this happened.

      Hi Sue, yikes.. Yeah sounds like you used a bigger biscuit pack, mine is a 7.5oz small tube with 10 small biscuits in them, I can tell you the whole package is 17SP (all 10 biscuits) if yours are bigger that would cause you too have too much egg mixture left over

        First want to say how much I love your site, Katie, your recipes are awesome, and being new to WW this has been a great help. For the breakfast bubble up, if u use half the biscuit dough and more egg, would that make them 1 pt each?

    These sound really good. But I have a question. Are you pushing the six pieces of dough into the muffin cup to make a dough cup? Or Just placing them in and egg mixture goes all around under and over it? Iโ€™m thinking itโ€™s the latter since otherwise why would you need to cut them. But Iโ€™d like your input. Thank you!

      Hi Sally, yup just drop them in then pour in the egg and it will go all around it then the biscuits bake into the egg ๐Ÿ™‚

    I used egg whites (12) and the Pillsbury Grands Buttermilk biscuits. I adapted the recipe a little a because I was using egg whites and different biscuits. I used half of the biscuits in the package and cut them into 8ths. I put 3 pieces into each muffin cup and got 11 muffins with biscuits and 1 without. I also added 1/4 cup of cheese and my WW app calculated it to be 3 FP per muffin. They baked for about 24 minutes and I’ve been enjoying them all week for breakfast. I just pop one in the microwave for about 30 seconds and dig in! These are great and super easy for meal prep to help keep me on track.

      No, each biscuit is cut into 6 pieces and placed in one muffin cup, that’s why you only get 10 because there are only 10 biscuits in the pack

    Looks like a good idea to take to work. I’d add some sausage and cheese and then, they’d go over very good. Not so good if you’re counting points unless they are “brownie points.”
