Canadian Bacon Baked Eggs

* Gluten Free * Healthy * Low Carb * Paleo *

Every once in a while I see a recipe idea on Facebook and my brain just has a minor implosion. Swooning ensues … you get the picture. A friend of mine posted this simple recipe for a healthy, quick and delicious breakfast and I just had to try it as soon as possible! And of course I made a few minor adjustments to make it perfect!

Canadian Bacon Baked Eggs
Serves 4-6      

12 pieces Canadian bacon
12 large eggs
2 green onions, sliced
Freshly ground black pepper
Coconut oil spray (can use olive or canola)
Optional: Freshly grated cheese, chopped tomatoes, herbs, peppers, etc.

Preheat the oven to 375˚ and place a rack in the center.

Carefully spray a 12-cup muffin pan with the cooking oil spray. Place a piece of Canadian bacon into each greased cup so it creates a little holder for the egg. Gently crack one egg into each cup. Top with freshly ground pepper and scallions. (You can add anything else your heart desires at this step – cheese, tomatoes, etc.)

Place in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes. You want the whites to be set and the yolk to be runny so check often to ensure they’re cooked perfectly to your liking. Let cool 5 minutes and serve. Enjoy!

Editor's Note: Cooking for one? No problem - just refrigerate the leftovers - they'll keep for a few days and reheat easily for a quick snack!
