Keto eggs on the go
- 12 12 large egglarge eggs
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 5 oz. 140 g cooked bacon
- Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
- Place cupcake liners in a muffin tin. Eggs easily stick even to non-stick surfaces, except for silicon forms.
- Crack one egg in each form and add the filling of your choice. Choose one of our fillings below, or invent your own! We're going for classic crumbled bacon.
- Season to taste.
- Bake in the oven for about 15 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.
When it comes to the filling, your imagination is the only limit. Regardless of your choice of filling, you can increase the fat ratio by adding shredded cheese, mayonnaise, or sour cream before baking. Other suggestions for fillings are ham, turkey, salami, all kinds of cheeses—pepper jack, parmesan, blue cheese etc.—plus avocado, cocktail tomatoes, chopped onion, minced garlic and fresh or pickled jalapenos/chili pepper. Experiment and have a blast!
I did this but scrambled my eggs first then added ham, garlic, cheese, spinach. Yet when i used the paper inserts the "muffins" mostly stuck to the paper wasting quite a bit. Ive been using the silicone ones but they don't taste the same and despite how long i leave them in the oven they stay rather moist.
Standard food safety practices would apply to these. 3-5 days in the refrigerator and yes, these will freeze.
After preparing this recipe, a tip is to prepare the meat before heating the oven. I made a recipe for 12 servings, cooked at least 24 oz of raw bacon in order to get the 8 oz of cooked bacon for the recipe, and by the time I was done, my oven had been at 400* for about one hour. The next time I prepare this recipe, I'll prepare the meat and all other toppings first, heat the oven second, fill the muffin liners and top the eggs third, and bake fourth. For 12 servings, I rotated the two muffin pans in the oven after 10 minutes, then baked them for another 10 minutes. Delightful!
Also, as someone who has planned numerous meals and grocery lists over decades, my favorite feature on this site is the ability to adjust the recipe servings, thus adjusting the ingredients, thus adjusting the grocery list! If you could see me, I am bowing before you!
