Breakfast Ideas - Phase 1 - Bacon, Egg and cheese cups - Easy AND Delicious!

This recipe was originally posted in the main forum by Shesaninja.

I made this recipe from recipezaar last night that I just have to share:

Bacon, Egg and Cheese cups

6 eggs
6 slices of turkey bacon
shredded cheese (I used cheddar)

Cook the bacon til it crisps up a little (don't cook all the way).
Put the bacon strips in a muffin tin (I used liners and sprayed them with pam) so they cover the edges and leave the bottom open.
Crack a single egg into each bacon ring.
Top with shredded cheese.
Bake at 350 for 18-20 minutes.

I doubled the recipe and made them last night. I just nuked a couple (1 minute) for breakfast and they are delicious. I paired them with a glass of V8 and I'm totally satisfied.

These were great! It's a nice twist to just scrambled eggs and bacon! Thanks! :carrot:

I add a little bit of chopped veggies - maybe scallion, bell pepper, a bit og you some veggie and reduces amount of calories - just scramble the egg - add the veggies and a dash of tabasco....YUMMY!!!!!

Silly Q but what kind of liners do you guys use paper/foil? I want to make sure it's micro safe

KO - I didn't use any wrappers, I just did a quick spray with Pam. They come out really easily. I also put a lot of pepper in them because I LOVE black pepper w/ my eggs.

My Grocery was out of Turkey bacon (bizarre!) So I thought 1 of 2 things.
1 do a regular quiche cup with ham broc and cheddar or make a "cup" out of the ham.
Any thoughts?

Am I reading your ticker right? Have you really lost 106lbs? Have you done it all on the SBD?:bravo:

Which poster are you talking about? KO? Hmacneil? I don't think either of them has lost that much. Reading back, I guess you mean Beachgal. Yes, she has lost all that weight on SBD.

By the way, your ticker isn't working. Holler via PM if you need help.

I made these last night and had one for breakfast. I loved it. How many servings does this make? I only ate one with some v8 and it was pretty satisfying, but I was snack ready by 1030.

The recipe is only 144 calories for a single egg and bacon slice with a slice of reduced fat cheese. Maybe two would be a better breakfast serving. You could also have raw veggies along with the V8 to hold you longer.
However, depending on your breakfast time, 10:30 is about the right timing for being ready for a snack.
Nice to see you back, Nullgal! :hug:

do these freeze well? also, does the egg come out overhard or a bit overeasy?

These freeze quite well, and the egg comes out fluffy. Mine did retain a lot of moisture from freezing, but that was easily remedied by patting them with a paper towel.

I tried these this morning and they were great! I added some garlic powder for taste and used turkey bacon. I made enough to carry me through the first week of phase 1.

Def. going to try this, thanks for posting

I also added veggies to this one. Instead of yellow cheese I threw in some fat free parmesan cheese. I also put spinach at the bottom of the cup, crumbled up the bacon and then also covered it in finely chopped onion. YUMMY!

Can't wait to try this one. Today is my first day on SBD. I am hungry now. I think that if I add a hardier breakfast I may do better. Thanks for the recipes here.
