The New Year will be here in days and I’ve got the Keto Diet (ketogentic diet) on my mind. I know that there will be slips and lots of cheating between now and then; in fact I planned them! It’s the Holidays; a time to celebrate and with celebrating comes delicious food.

So while I am celebrating, I am also preparing a Keto menu plan for myself so that when I’m ready, I won’t have to fumble for Keto breakfast recipes. Preparation is key.

I will get back on track! (New Year’s Resolution).

I came up with something delicious; breakfast keto egg muffins, using only 3 ingredients, bacon, eggs and chives. It has simple ingredients and it’s a easy recipe for an easy breakfast! It’s also a great Keto Meal Prep item.

These low carb egg muffins work for Whole30 diet, low carb diet, the Paleo diet, and are gluten free. Bonus!

Some people make this with just egg whites, but I prefer having the egg yolks too. It’s more filling and they are good for you! Keto egg cups are also commonly made with cheddar cheese too. I’ve also heard of spinach egg muffins or adding eggs to the top of the sausage patty! The ideas are limitless!

However you decide to make these keto bacon egg muffins, they are a great keto breakfast idea.

It’s best to use cage free, hormone free eggs and all natural bacon without nitrates or nitrites like COLEMAN NATURAL® Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon. This delicious no-antibiotics-ever uncured fresh pork bacon is the perfect partner to fresh eggs and make a great bacon egg cup.

I have to say that the COLEMAN NATURAL® Uncured Hickory Smoked Bacon is what really gives these all the flavor. I added just a little pepper but the bacon adds so much flavor already, there’s no need for salt.
