In my quest to “quit sugar”, as Sarah Wilson- former editor of Cosmopolitan and qualified Health Coach with the Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York and author of, “I Quit Sugar”– would say, I have been trying lots of new recipes that make breakfast easy without cereals, toasts, bagels, muffins, etc. And THIS- This was the easiest and honestly, the most AMAZING egg bake, I have ever tried!
5 Simple Steps
Total time- prep and bake combined- 20 minutes or less!
Step 1: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease muffin cups with butter or organic, unrefined coconut oil. I just discovered this lovely new butter that I am in LOVE with! I’m not sure what it is about it- maybe the fact that I’m always buying unsalted butter for baking and I finally splurged and bought salted butter (which my sister always says is disgusting on toast because, “It tastes like Canola oil,” ha!) The brand is Finlandia and I found it at my local Shoprite and I just noticed that it comes up in Google at Walmart.com and Swagbucks are offered!
Step 2: Line muffin cups with 1 piece of bacon, bake 7 minutes. This gives the bacon a head start so that it will crisp nicely without overcooking the eggs. I always use bacon that does not contain nitrates.
Step 3: Remove from oven and crack an egg into each bacon-lined muffin cup. Cook for about 10 minutes.
Step 4: Add some chopped cheddar cheese on top of each egg. I like to chop my cheese from the block because it has less preservatives and additives than most packaged, shredded cheeses.
Step 5: Cook about 3 more minutes or until egg whites are firm.
These babies came out of the tin so easily and they were unbelievably delicious with perfectly cooked centers!
