These low-carb egg muffins are perfect for meal prep breakast. I like to cook up a batch on Sundays and store them in the fridge for the remainder of the week. These bites are also freezer-friendly, so if you’re in the mood to batch cook, make a bunch and freeze them for later!

If you don’t meal prep, don’t worry! These bites take 30 minutes to prepare. You can whip them up in the morning, too!

The egg muffins should keep for 1 week in the refrigerator. I usually shoot for 5 days.

How Do You Reheat Egg Muffins?

I like to use the microwave for 25-30 seconds. You can also use a toaster oven.

Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bacon and Cheese Egg Muffins (Bites) + VIDEO

Yield: 12 egg bites
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Keto Low-Carb Breakfast Bacon and Cheese Egg Muffins (Bites) are quick and easy cups loaded with your favorite meat and veggies. If you are looking for a carb-free, no-carb breakfast, you can use ham, spinach, or whatever works best. Hold the meat if you prefer vegetarian. These muffins are freezer-friendly, great for meal prep, or keto snacks on-the-go. This post includes the best low carb breakfast ideas.

Ingredients

  • 12 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 6 slices of Butcher Box bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1/2 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 medium red pepper, chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped mushrooms (any type you prefer)
  • 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, I used smoked cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl with the salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Spray a 12 capacity muffin tin with cooking oil. I like to use olive oil.
  4. Pour the eggs into each tin, only fill each about halfway.
  5. You can toss the bacon, onions, peppers, and mushrooms in a bowl if you like, to mix them up and add them to each of the tins. Or you can just divide each equally into each of the muffin tins. Place the veggies on top of the eggs.
  6. Top with the shredded cheese.
  7. Bake for 14-16 minutes or until the eggs are set. Mine were ready at 16 minutes. If you like your eggs more firm, give them additional time.
  8. Cool completely before serving. If you remove the egg bites too soon the edges of the bites will be left behind in the muffin tin.
  9. Scroll below to watch the full recipe video.

Notes

This recipe makes 12 egg bites. Divide the ingredients in half for less egg bites.

Instead of buying pre-shredded cheese I purchase block cheese and shred it with a cheese grater. It melts and tastes so much better than pre-shredded!

Feel free to use any flavor of cheese you wish.

These bites are freezer friendly. I defrost them overnight before use.

The bites will keep in the refrigerator for 5 days.

Recipe update:

I've found it's much cleaner and easier to make this recipe using silicone muffin mold liners. Eggs usually stick the muffin tin. These don't stick to the silicone and are much easier to clean.

Just made these as I have a busy week coming up with at home work and won’t have time to make breakfast. WOW these are good! So simple!

What a great way to use up those giant cartons of Costco eggs before they go bad! Will definitely be making these on the regular basis!

10/10 since there is no 5 star option to click! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
