Ingredients

Before we jump into the recipe, let’s take a look at the ingredients you’ll need:

Instructions

Now that we have all the ingredients ready, it’s time to start making our Keto Cheesy Bacon and Egg Cups. Follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This will ensure that your cups cook evenly and come out perfectly.

Step 2: Prepare the Bacon

Take bacon slices and line them along the sides of each muffin cup, creating a bacon cup. Make sure the bacon slices overlap slightly, so they hold together when cooked.

Step 3: Add the Cheese

Next, sprinkle shredded cheese into each bacon cup. You can use your favorite cheese, such as cheddar or mozzarella, to add a delicious cheesy flavor to the cups.

Step 4: Crack the Eggs

Crack one egg into each bacon cup. The eggs will cook inside the cups, creating a savory and creamy filling.

Step 5: Season with Salt and Pepper

Season each cup with salt and pepper, according to your taste preferences. This will enhance the flavors of the eggs, bacon, and cheese.

Step 6: Bake in the Oven

Place the muffin tin in the preheated oven and bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the eggs are set and the bacon is crispy. Keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking.

Step 7: Serve and Enjoy!

Once the cups are cooked to perfection, remove them from the oven and let them cool for a few minutes. Carefully remove the cups from the muffin tin and serve them warm. These cups are delicious on their own or paired with your favorite keto-friendly sides.
