The Best Keto Bacon and Egg Cups Recipe
Bacon, Bacon and More Bacon
This page is dedicated to the best “Keto Bacon and Egg Cups” recipe on the Internet. But before we tell you the delicious secrets about this recipe, let’s step back for a minute.
You may not believe me, but there are a huge amount of yummy benefits to being on a ketogenic diet. And one of those benefits is eating lots of sweet, sweet bacon. We’ve heard about bacon “dangers”, as it can cause high cholesterol, but no one ever seems to mention the benefits.
For example, did you know that bacon actually contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are the same nutrients found in fish? And it’s these particular fatty acids that actually help protect the heart and keep it functioning correctly. Bacon also contains a lot of a nutrient called choline. This nutrient is particularly important for memory and intelligence and scientists have even found it can help fight off mental impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease. Amazing, right?
So, now we’ve discovered the benefits of bacon, let’s move on to the recipe.
- This recipe could not be simpler, and will have you in bacon and egg heaven before you know it! First up, grab a muffin tray and grease with a little oil to stop the bacon and eggs from sticking.
- **Optional** If , like us, you like your bacon on the crispy side, you can fry up your bacon in a pan for a couple of minutes before you put it in the tray. Put one slice of bacon into each muffin slot, making sure that the bacon is wrapped around the sides and not on the bottom of the tin.
- Crack an egg into each slot with the bacon. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper on top, and top it off with a sprinkling of your favourite grated cheese (we used sharp cheddar).
- Get these bad boys in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees F (180 C). When they emerge the will be bubbling with keto goodness. I love to eat these hot or cold, and often take cold ones to work for a snack in my lunchbox. A truly great little snack for boosting your fat intake! Let us know what you think in the comments.
- **TOP TIP** If you prefer your eggs a bit more runny, cook the bacon in the muffin tin for 10 minutes first, and then crack in the eggs before cooking for another 10.
