Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.
  2. Cook and stir bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a bowl, reserving bacon grease in the skillet.
  3. Combine spinach, mushrooms, green bell pepper, onion, salt, and ground black pepper to taste in the skillet with bacon grease; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture to a bowl and place in the freezer to cool, about 5 minutes.
  4. Whisk eggs and cream together in a bowl; stir in 1 cup Colby-Jack cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Add cooled vegetables and bacon to egg mixture and mix gently.
  5. Scoop 1/4 cup egg mixture into each muffin cup; top each with remaining Colby-Jack cheese.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until egg cups are set, about 20 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Substitute any cooked meat or any cooked veggie. Make sure if you're low carbin' it, that they are low-carb ingredients though.
  • Cheddar cheese can be used in place of Colby-Jack, if desired.
  • I use silicone muffin cups, but the greased muffin tin is fine.

Since I lacked some ingredients I went with what I had, eggs, milk, bacon, cheddar. Still though, you can use anything and they came out splendidly! Delish!

Was cleaning out my refrigerator for hurricane Matthew, and I added more cream and ricotta cheese, and extra spinach and mushrooms, so they don't have to be thrown out. Plan to warm them on a ca...

I cooked the bacon first before cutting it. I garnished it with fresh basil and it added to the flavor.

Absolutely scrumptious & great to grab on the go or to pack in your lunch! I utilize various veggies I've got in my fridge; and love adding sautéed asparagus, mushrooms, red pepper & Maui sweet ...

I changed the cream to sour cream, used about 1/3 lb of sausage and baked 15 minutes. Perfect!! I also dropped my temp to 325. Served with salsa and sour cream for a little taste variation.

I just used onion, garlic and fresh spinach and bacon bits. Worked out great in my opinion

Excellent recipe. Easy as can be. I needed to change a couple of things for dietary requirements. I used 90g of shredded goat cheese instead of dairy (lactose intolerant) and back bacon (heart ...
