I’m obsessed with these cute keto Bacon and Egg Cups.  I’ve made them several times now and perfected my bacon so it becomes crispy.

They are super easy to make ahead and can be stored in the fridge or freezer for several days of healthy, protein filled breakfasts on the go.

The kids love these because they are so darn cute.  Sometimes all you have to do is put the same food in a different wrapping paper and you get a renewed interest.  They pick off the chives (they are green after all) and I add grated cheddar to the tops of theirs.

You could also scramble the eggs a bit and mix in veggies but then it becomes more of a quiche and loses that pretty yellow yoke.  After all, we eat first with our eyes!

These muffin pan Bacon and Egg Cups would be perfect for a Mother’s Day Brunch or breakfast in bed.  Hint, hint kiddos.

There are many variations out there, some with bread on the bottom and veggies mixed in but I kept mine straight up.  Feel free to adjust them so they are more appealing to your bunch.

I cook the bacon for about 8 minutes first then put it in the muffin pan.  You don’t want it to be completely cooked so that it can crisp up in the oven.
