This process is so simple. Simply combine the egg muffin ingredients in a bowl.
Spray the muffin tin with cooking spray.

Pour the egg mixture into each and then bake!

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

Low-Carb Breakfast Ideas:
The keto lifestyle can sometimes cause me to get dizzy and have brain fog. It can be really hard to focus. Each night before bed I like to drink bone broth. Kettle and Fire is my favorite brand. They have beef and chicken flavors. I add a little liquid aminos and hot sauce for flavor. You can sip it from a mug or eat it like a miso soup in a bowl.
I add 1 tablespoon of MCT oil to my coffee in the morning. This helps add additional fat to support keto macros and also helps with keto flu.
- 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
- 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese, I used smoked cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Whisk the eggs in a large bowl with the salt and pepper to taste.
- Spray a 12 capacity muffin tin with cooking oil. I like to use olive oil.
- Pour the eggs into each tin, only fill each about halfway.
- 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.
- Top with the shredded cheese.
- 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.
- 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.

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.
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.
