Light, fluffy and flavorful, these Easy Bacon Egg Bites are quick to prepare and Keto-friendly. They are so easy to make and reheat well! What else is there to ask for?
I created this recipe as a replica of the egg bites served at Starbucks. During the low-carb and Keto craze of late, egg bites have become a popular food to prep for those trying to watch their waistline. Baked in a muffin tin, they are super simple to whip up and even easier to reheat in the microwave.
Easy Bacon Egg Bites have been an absolute hit with my boys! In the morning, they pop them in the microwave by themselves (lucky me!) and gobble them up as we head out the door to drop them off at school. Sometimes, we even pack them in their school lunches. I can rest assured that they are getting the nutrition they need for breakfast, while also not having to heat up a pan and make them fresh eggs myself. That’s what I call a “win-win”!
Homemade Egg Bites vs. Starbucks Egg Bites
Starbucks created a knock-out product that people can’t get enough of. However, making my recipe for Easy Bacon Egg Bites will save you money and allow you to experiment with different egg bite flavor combinations.
Here’s some great options to add to your egg bites:
- Veggies: onions, bell peppers, mushrooms, green onions, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, spinach, kale, potatoes, and any and all types of herbs.
- Meats: bacon, ham, steak, grilled chicken, turkey, Canadian bacon and sausage.
- Cheeses: mozzarella, parmesan, jack cheese, cheddar, feta, goat cheese and pepper jack.
Get creative! Don’t feel limited to my recipe. Pretty much any combination you would have in an omelette will work in an egg bite.
Serving suggestions: Pop a piece of bread in your toaster and pair your egg bites with a side of fruit. My boys really like to squish an egg bite between the halves of a toasted english muffin for a quick breakfast sandwich. If you are trying to stay low-carb, top your egg bite with some fresh avocado, salsa or more cheese.
Tips for Making Bacon Egg Bites
- Be sure to whisk your eggs with cream before adding bacon and cheese. This will make for a more uniform egg bite.
- Make sure to spray your muffin tin with cooking spray before adding the egg mixture. You don’t want your bites to stick to the pan!
- Use a ladle or a measuring cup to pour the egg mixture into the muffin tin.
- Chop your egg bite additions in a similar size. The more even your chopping, the more uniform your egg bites will bake!
Storing Egg Bites
Prepping egg bites ahead of time means a no-fuss breakfast. If you have a large family, I suggest making double or triple batches. Here are my tips and tricks to storing egg bites in the freezer or refrigerator:
Freezing Egg Bites (Long Term)
Let your egg muffins cool down completely. Then, wrap each one in plastic wrap and place them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag. When stored properly, you can keep egg bites frozen for up to three months.
When you are ready to reheat, unwrap the egg bites and wrap them in a wet paper towel. Place them on a microwave safe plate and defrost them for 1-3 minutes (depending on the strength of your microwave).
Refrigerating Egg Bites (Short Term)
Let your egg muffins cool down completely. Then, place them in an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. When you are ready to reheat them, place them on a microwave-safe plate and cook them for about a minute.
