I make new variations of egg muffins just for myself quite often, but these Keto Egg Muffins with Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese were such a tasty combination that I had to share the recipe!

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 12 egg muffins

Ingredients

  • 4 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 tsp. olive oil
  • 8 slices bacon cooked until crisp
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 3 sliced green onions
  • 18 eggs

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375F/190C and spray silicone muffin cups with non-stick spray.
  • Cut up enough fresh broccoli to make 4 cups broccoli florets.
  • Heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the broccoli about 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring several time. Broccoli will not be fully cooked but it should turn bright green.
  • Spray silicone muffin cups with non-stick spray, put them on a baking sheet, and divide the broccoli between the muffin cups.
  • I used pre-cooked bacon from Costco that I just cut into short strips and crisped in the microwave, but if you’re using raw bacon you need to cook until crisp in a frying pan and probably drain on paper towels.
  • Divide bacon strips between the muffins cups and then put some cheese in each muffin cup over the broccoli.
  • Put some sliced green onion on top of the cheese.
  • Beat eggs until they’re well combined.
  • Pour some egg into each of the muffin cups, let it sink down, then add some more until all the egg is used.
  • I like to use a fork and gently “stir” so ingredients are well-distributed.
  • Bake about 30 minutes, or until eggs are completely set and firm on the top.
  • Serve hot. Egg Muffins can be kept in the fridge and reheated during the week.
