Apple, Bacon, Onion & Cheddar Breakfast Squares
Fall in love with the sweet and savory flavor combination in this Apple, Bacon, Onion & Cheddar Breakfast square recipe that is made in one pan. Gluten Free. Low Carb.
Raise your hand if you are all about that one pan recipe life?! And raise both hands if you are all about that bacon life!! Yup, we have dreams about bacon at night. Our obsession is real. We won’t deny it. Plus, apple, bacon, and cheddar? It’s like a sweet and savory match made in (breakfast) heaven.
Just 10 ingredients, 1 bowl and you are on your way to making the easiest, gluten-free, low carb breakfast around! We made this recipe into breakfast squares to change things up, but you could easily make them into egg cups if those are easier to transport for your meal preps. And, like you hear us say ALL THE TIME you can add in or swap out ingredients to make this fit your palate.
You could use pears instead of apples, swiss instead of mozzarella, sausage in place of bacon. Vegetarian? Leave out the bacon. Paleo? Leave out the cheese or use a grass-fed cheddar. Want more veggies? Add some spinach, kale or zucchini!
Although we call this a breakfast recipe, we will be honest, we enjoyed it for lunch and dinner several times too. It comes together so quickly. We added a baked potato on the side and had a complete meal of protein, healthy fats and carbs ready in minutes!
