Bacon, Cheddar and Chive Mug Cake

Lunch > Keto Recipes

When you think of a mug cake, you might think of one of the sweeter options. But, savory mug cakes can be made too! Not to mention, they’re pretty freakin’ awesome. Cheese really helps these things out with the texture too. It gives a more moist, more delicious, more hearty and filling dish that you can actually use to replace a full meal – breakfast or lunch!

Just in case you did miss our sweet series of mug cakes, you can check them out below:

The delicious bacon, the butter, the cheese all coming together with flavorings from the chives and Mrs. Dash Table Blend. I used to be a hater of pre-made spice mixes but this one is actually awesome! It’s one of the few I regularly keep around because it compliments almost any dish. Vegetables, meat, seafood – sprinkle it on top of anything you’re cooking or sauteing and you have yourself a nicely seasoned meal. Of course, don’t forget the salt and pepper – this is salt free.

I literally always have some sort of bacon cooked in my house, whether it’s chocolate covered, spice rubbed, cured, or the good ol’ plain stuff. I suggest you do the same! Cook up 2 baking sheets worth (that’s about 20-24 slices) and keep them in the fridge, ready to go at all times. Don’t forget to save the bacon fat off of those either, it’s a perfect way to render a ton of fat and keep it for your own personal uses. This stuff is like gold in my house, and when I see it disappear I know someone’s getting a lecture about it.
