Delicious and Easy Bacon Egg Bites

Bacon egg bites are a go-to for busy mornings. It's all the best of breakfast, in a portable, keto-friendly bite!

Bacon, eggs, and cheese. What could be better for breakfast? We might not always have time to make such a classic combo during busy weekday mornings, but that doesn't mean you have to miss out on a breakfast of substance. The trick is to do a little prep ahead of time (even the night before will do), so you can have a delicious and high-protein meal prep ready for you in the morning, in 20 minutes. Set them in the oven while you shower or pack lunches.

Bacon Egg Bites Ingredients

  • 5 large eggs
  • ¼ pound cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ½ tsp. Italian seasoning, optional
  • ½ tsp. red chili flakes, optional

How to Make Bacon Egg Bites

You'll love how easy these are. Simply whisk together the eggs in a large bowl with the salt and pepper. Stir in the crumbled bacon and shredded cheddar, along with the Italian seasoning and chili flakes, if using. Divide the egg mixture among muffin tins that you've sprayed with cooking spray, and bake for about 20 minutes. It's that easy!

Make-Ahead Tip: You'll probably want to make the bacon ahead of time to speed up the prep, as this recipe calls for cooked bacon. You can also, if desired, whisk everything together and pour the eggs into the muffin tins and cover the whole pan with foil the night before. Then, all you have to do in the morning is preheat the oven and bake these egg bites while you get ready for your day.

How to Store and Serve Bacon Egg Bites

These will meal prep great, so feel free to seal them in airtight containers for a few days. We like to serve this alongside anything green, whether it's a handful of baby spinach or arugula, or maybe some steamed broccoli (we may have a bit of a broccoli fixation around here, but it's ok, right?) Eggs and potatoes are a classic combo. If you've got an air fryer, you can heat up some frozen French fries or tater tots while the eggs bake. Easy, and then you have what one might call a complete breakfast. Otherwise, a quick piece of multigrain toast makes a nice accompaniment to these egg bites.

You can eat these bacon egg bites cold if desired, or reheat them in the microwave on low heat until hot. If you don't have a microwave, then wrap them in foil and pop them into a 350-degree F oven for about 5 to 10 minutes until they're heated through.

Substitutions and Alterations

Oh, you can so vary these!

  • Use JustEgg for a vegan replacement and of course skip the bacon. Use vegan cheese and add lots of chopped veggies instead of bacon.
  • Double the recipe and meal prep for the family for the week.
  • Use turkey bacon instead of regular bacon.
  • Use your favorite cheese—it doesn't have to be cheddar. Monterey jack, Gruyere, mozzarella, Havarti, the list goes on. Feta and goat cheese are good, too.
  • Saute some garlic, onions, or shallots and add those to the egg mix for extra-savory flavor.
  • Toss in some finely chopped and sauteed greens such as kale or spinach for some extra vitamins and fiber.
