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.
