The other day we were thinking about fun low carb breakfast ideas. These Breakfast Bacon Baskets made the cut! They’re super yummy, easy to make and will be ready in 25 minutes!
The bacon strips hold the eggs like a basket shape in the muffin tin. The flavor is mouthwateringly good with the bacon, egg and cheese flavors melting into each other.
There’s also some spinach to give it a healthy and colorful kick!
Make these for a quick breakfast or brunch dish. They are also a delicious breakfast on the go if you’re in a hurry. They pair well with sausages and fruit for a low carb breakfast.
But if that isn’t your thing, then toast or hash browns are totally acceptable sides as well. They’re fun to dip in ketchup, which is especially fun for kids.
Watch our video tutorial to see how to make them:
