Bacon Wrapped Omelet. Yes, you read that correctly. How fun is this concept? Crispy bacon around eggs? Definitely a meal prep winner! Whole30 friendly, gluten free, and delicious.
We all know that it’s important to start our days with a well-rounded breakfast, especially if you’ve got a lot on your to-do list! The right nutrients give your body the fuel it needs to stay energized, your brain the fuel it needs to process and make clear decisions, and your metabolism the fuel it needs to stay active. Most of us know this conceptually, but it can still be so difficult to prepare a proper breakfast in the morning. If you’re running late, the last thing you want to do is take the time to cook an omelet.
But what if you don’t have to? Bacon-wrapped omelets might sound like something a restaurant would serve for brunch, but you can officially add them to your meal prep recipes. Yup! This is a breakfast you make once and then get to enjoy throughout the week.
Not only are these bacon wrapped omelets about to make your weekday mornings infinitely better, they are also gluten free, paleo, and Whole30-approved! And you’ll love how moist and flavorful they are.
Salad for Breakfast?
Maybe you’re not so used to seeing salad on a breakfast plate. It might be new for you, but remember that little chat we had about how important a balanced breakfast is? We know we don’t have to tell you all of the nutritional benefits of kale, as it's one of the most nutrient-dense plants you can eat! So we think it has earned its place in a few breakfast meal prep recipes here and there.
Not a fan of kale in salad? The dressing will definitely convert you, but there's a trick to kale salads, and it's worth extra few minutes. It's called massaging the kale. It might sound silly, but that prep step, which literally involves rubbing the kale between your fingers to help soften its tough fibers, is going to significantly change the texture of your kale. The bitterness of kale plays well against the salty-savory bacon. Trust us.

How to Store and Serve Bacon Wrapped Omelets:
If you have leftover egg muffins, it’s best to store them in air tight meal prep containers in the refrigerator. They will last for 3-4 days in the fridge.
You can also freeze them for up to 2 months. Just place them in a zip-lock bag or airtight container and ensure it is properly sealed. When you’re ready to eat your egg muffins, microwave them for 30 seconds or heat them in the oven for 10 minutes.
They can be easily reheated and enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. There are a few ways to reheat them, so they taste just as good as the first time. You can either microwave or heat them in the oven. The key here, since they are already cooked, is to warm them up just enough; otherwise the eggs can become a little rubbery.
You can air fry them as well. In a preheated air fryer, you'll be able to get a nice crisp to your bacon. You can do 400 degrees for 1 minute.
For best storage results, I use a FoodSaver vacuum sealer.
