When we hit our one year marker of being on a keto diet we realized how many tips and tricks we had come up with to help us stay committed to the lifestyle. We’ve incorporated intermittent fasting, bullet proof coffee and bulk meal prepping into our day to day. But, one of our favorite tricks is Bacon Egg Cups! If you have a muffin tin, you can put anything you want in each cup, throw it in the oven and you have the most convenient meal you can think of.
We especially love this method for breakfast. Most people these days are getting up early to hit the gym or get into work early so, naturally, there is a loss of time to fill up with a hearty breakfast. That’s where these bacon egg cups come in for the win! We keep it pretty simple with this recipe while still amping up on the flavor and macros to get your day started off just right!
Our biggest tip for this recipe is to try and pack as much as you can into each cup. Don’t worry about them overflowing, that’s only a good thing in this case. Once you pop them in the oven they will rise and fall, becoming a perfectly dense, cheesy, bacon packed egg cup.
You can grab a couple before you head out the door and microwave them at work or eat them right in the car. They are the perfect accessory for the hand you won’t be using on the steering wheel hehe.
Egg Cups with Bacon: Fill Them However You Want!
The best part about this recipe is that you can fill the egg cups with any ingredients you like. You can even throw in some broccoli, chicken and soy sauce for an asian twist and eat them for lunch! Take it from the egg cup experts (that’s us!) – this tip will make your life a heck of a lot easier.
3ozShredded Cheddar Cheese
Start by cooking the bacon. This can be done on the stove top or in the oven. Since we will be using the oven anyway, I find it easiest to just use that. Bake bacon for 30-40 minutes at 350 degrees.
Allow bacon to cool. Crack a single egg into cup of a muffin tin.
Chop bacon into 1/4 inch pieces and add 1/2 strip of bacon to each egg cup.
Add 0.25 oz of cheddar cheese to each egg cup.
With a fork, break each yolk and stir the ingredients together lightly.
