prep time: 15 minscook time: 25 minstotal time: 40 mins

ingredients:

  • 12 ounces bacon, chopped*
  • 1/2 cup diced yellow onion
  • 3 cups chopped broccoli florrets 
  • 12 large eggs
  • black pepper, to taste

instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375℉ and line a 12-hole muffin tin with silicone liners (silicone liners work best to prevent sticking).
  2. Place a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add chopped bacon and sauté for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Carefully drain off the bacon grease if desired (I left it in. It adds great flavor!)
  4. Add onions to the pan with the bacon and sauté for about 3-4 minutes or until onions are translucent.  
  5. Finally, add the chopped broccoli to the pan. Cook for 3-4 more minutes and remove pan from heat. Allow mixture to cool for a few minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a large bowl. 
  7. Add bacon/broccoli mixture and whisk to combine.
  8. Season with black pepper to taste.
  9. Evenly portion the egg mixture between the 12 lined muffin tin holes.
  10. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until egg cups are puffed up, cooked through and slightly golden brown on top.
  11. Once done baking, enjoy warm or allow to cool completely before storing in an air-tight container in fridge for up to 5 days.

NOTES:

* Look for bacon without added sugar, artificial nitrates, or nitrites. Read the labels to be sure.
