The Best Keto Bacon and Egg Cups Recipe
Bacon, Bacon and More Bacon
This page is dedicated to the best “Keto Bacon and Egg Cups” recipe on the Internet. But before we tell you the delicious secrets about this recipe, let’s step back for a minute.
You may not believe me, but there are a huge amount of yummy benefits to being on a ketogenic diet. And one of those benefits is eating lots of sweet, sweet bacon. We’ve heard about bacon “dangers”, as it can cause high cholesterol, but no one ever seems to mention the benefits.
For example, did you know that bacon actually contains omega-3 fatty acids, which are the same nutrients found in fish? And it’s these particular fatty acids that actually help protect the heart and keep it functioning correctly. Bacon also contains a lot of a nutrient called choline. This nutrient is particularly important for memory and intelligence and scientists have even found it can help fight off mental impairments such as Alzheimer’s disease. Amazing, right?
So, now we’ve discovered the benefits of bacon, let’s move on to the recipe.
What you should know about this delicious recipe, is that it’s full of the all-important protein keto dieters need. This is not only due to the lack of sugary carbohydrates, but because it’s main ingredients are bacon (you guessed it!), eggs and cheese. And just to let you know, it’s pretty much impossible to find three ingredients that contain as much protein as these. So, for anyone trying to get their fat intake up, whilst keeping their other macros down, these little cups are perfect.
We recommend eating these for breakfast, as they’re very quick to make. For example, there’s only four steps to the entire recipe, whilst our last step is just a top tip to learn how to cook the eggs exactly as you like them. They’re also perfect as a protein filled snack if you’re having a particularly ravenous morning or evening.
Even though they take 25 minutes to prepare, twenty minutes of that is actually cooking time! Result! If you’re always in a bit of a rush, though, feel free to cook these in bulk and freeze them. It will save you so much time, that you can then spend on more important activities, such as caring for your kids or having extra leisure time! Be careful if you wish to recook these, however. Make sure they have fully defrosted and are piping hot when taking them out of the oven. You can test the temperature with a kitchen utensil and don’t burn yourself by eating them right away.
