Keto Egg Bites With Bacon Crust

Hey, y’all – Happy Day 13 of Blogmas! Blogmas is a series that I am bringing to the blog this year (and hopefully in subsequent years) that will provide y’all with a new recipe every day of December through Christmas. How fun is that? Today I’m excited to be sharing a fabulous breakfast/brunch item — and one that is perfect for meal-prepping: my bacon-wrapped egg cups!

What eggs do I recommend?

I love buying local eggs from people in town. That said, if you are in the store, I love Happy Eggs. They are humanely-raised and simply delicious. You can find them in many of your large supermarkets, including Kroger!

Can I use turkey bacon instead of pork bacon?

Absolutely! I prefer pork bacon; however, if you want to make this recipe healthier, turkey bacon would be a wonderful substitute!

What’s the key to the recipe?

Reshaping the bacon after cooking. The bacon will shrink as it cooks and thus not be a perfect fit around the tin. I recommend blotting out the excess grease and then reforming the bacon around each muffin indention. This will ensure that the egg cups are truly bacon-wrapped. A work around this step is to cook bacon ahead of time, chop it, and include it simply in the egg mixture. Same flavor – just a different look!

Ingredients
  

  • 12 slices bacon
  • 12 large eggs
  • 1/2 c. sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 c. monterey jack cheese
  • 2 tbsp. dijon mustard I recommend Grey Poupon
  • 1/2 c. half & half
  • 1 tbsp. minced onion
  • 2 tsp. hot sauce I recommend Cholula
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Wrap bacon around the wells/cups of a muffin tin.
  • Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and reshape the bacon around the wells/cups if moved; blot out excess grease, leaving only 10% or so of it behind for flavor.
  • In a large bowl, mix eggs, sharp cheddar, monterey jack, dijon mustard, minced onion, garlic powder, salt, and pepper until well-combined.
  • Evenly distribute in the muffin tin and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out of the center clean). If you have extra egg mixture, make it into an omelette in your skillet!
  • Enjoy!
