Bacon Crusted Frittata Muffins

Keto Recipes > Breakfast

These are one of my favorite things to cook; they’re easy, pretty fast, and they save extremely well. Cook them in bulk and then you have breakfast for the entire week!

When I cooked these, I tried 2 different methods of making the bacon basket. The way listed below had the best results – with the others, the eggs leaked completely through to the sides and the bacon curled up as it was cooking – making it more of a frittata muffin with a curl of bacon in the middle.

They save extremely well. You can freeze or refrigerate them. I prefer to refrigerate them so that I can have them for breakfast again when I am in a rush. I will normally put them in the microwave for 45-60 seconds, and they come out great!

As always, let me know how you like them in the comments below, or tell us your own twist.

Yields 7 total “muffins”

The Preparation

  • 18 slices bacon
  • 7 large eggs
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • 4 tablespoons heavy whipping cream
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper

The Execution

1. Preheat your oven 375F.

2. Cut your bacon slices in half and mold them around the outsides and bottom of each well in a cupcake tray. You should use about 2 slices of bacon per well, sometimes more to fill in excess gaps.

3. Bake the bacon baskets in the oven for 15 minutes to pre-cook them. While the bacon is cooking, whisk together some eggs, cream, and your spices. Feel free to add any extra fresh herbs of your preference.

4. Put 1-2 tbsp. of cheddar cheese at the bottom of each bacon fritatta. Put about 1/4 cup of egg mixture into each bacon mold, trying your best to not let any egg leak out. Put them into the oven for an additional 12-15 minutes or until they start to brown on the top.

5. Remove from the oven and let cool. Serve or store for later!
