bacon and egg nests

Happy Friday. ­čÖé I know this recipe might be confusing for some of you since you probably know by now that I don’t really eat meat….I mostly stick with a plant based diet and eat eggs and seafood occasionally. My man on the other hand does eat meat and I am totally fine with it. In fact I even cook him chicken and bacon once or twice a week. I always make sure that the meat I buy him is organic and hormone free. If you are going to consume animal products I feel it is your duty┬áto buy the best you can afford. I also make sure any dairy I buy for him is also organic. My man is a personal trainer and a Crossfit fanatic, he is currently training┬áfor a competition and he wanted to cut out bread from his morning routine. We brainstormed a bit and after seeing a few of these breakfast cups on pinterest, we decided these would be a fast and filling┬ábreakfast solution. If you don’t have time like he does to make breakfast in the morning, these are a perfect solution. You make a big batch on the weekend and then just reheat 1 or 2 in the morning. It’s a bit strange posting a recipe I didn’t try myself but my guy┬ásaid that these were filling and delicious. Problem solved! ­čśë

Paleo Breakfast Egg and Bacon Nests
Recipe type: Breakfast
Cuisine: Paleo, Gluten Free
Serves: 12
  • 12 organic eggs
  • 4-5 medium organic potatoes (peeled)
  • ⅔ cup of aged cheddar cheese
  • 4 strips of organic bacon, chopped (cooked)
  • ½ tsp dried oregano
  • ½ tsp dried basil
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbs olive oil
  • coconut oil cooking spray
  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees. Take a muffin tin and spray it with your coconut oil.
  2. Now grate your potatoes and cheese (I used my food processor grater to save time). In a bowl mix together the eggs, cheese and oil and season with salt and pepper. Distribute the potato mixture evenly between the muffin cups spreading out the mixture to cover the sides and leave a nest in the middle. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
  3. Beat together the eggs and season with salt, basil and oregano. Pour the egg mixture into the potato nests and top with bacon bits.
  4. Put back in the oven at 350 degrees for 15-20 more minutes.
  5. Make sure the egg is fully cooked and then let cool.
  6. Transfer the nests and serve or put them into your freezer.
  7. Note: If you don't use an oil spray to coat your muffin tins you may have a hard time getting them out after they are cooked....I learned the hard way.
