Bacon & Egg Muffins

bacon and egg muffins recipe
A Bacon & Egg Muffin and a Low-Carb "Faux" Waffle. (Don't worry, the black stuff in the muffin is just pepper!)
Before work
Wife: So it looks like we're having breakfast for dinner tonight.
Husband: Does that mean we'll have bacon?
Wife: It can.
Husband: OK, then, we're having breakfast for dinner!

After work
Husband: Bacon and eggs for dinner, bacon and eggs for dinner!
Wife: Well, I wanted to make something like bacon and egg muffins.
Husband: What?
Wife: It's like scrambled eggs, but I'm going to bake them.
Husband: But they'll look like muffins. [hesitates] Alright. Just because I love you. Do whatever floats your boat.

After dinner
Husband: Not too shabby. I'd eat those again!

Bacon & Egg Muffins
Serves 2

2 eggs
4 egg whites
2 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
4 teaspoons shredded part-skim mozzarella

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a standard size muffin pan with nonstick spray.

Whisk the eggs, egg whites, bacon and spices in a small bowl or measuring cup. Pour the egg mixture into the prepared muffin pan. (Remember: You're filling only four muffin cups!) 

Top each with 1 teaspoon mozzarella. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until set. (When a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, you're good.)


Each "muffin" is about 97 calories, 5.5 g fat, .25 g carbs, 0 g fiber, and 9.5 g protein


  1. I'm all about breakfast for dinner. This looks fantastic. Isn't it funny how you can use so little (2 slices of bacon), but if it's spread properly, the guys never even know!

  2. I LOVE having breakfast for dinner! These sound great!


Thanks for taking the time out of your day to show my space a little love.
