Keto Bacon Wrapped Mushroom Egg Muffins Recipe
The only thing that can possibly make egg muffins better is wrapping them in bacon! That’s exactly what I did in this keto bacon wrapped mushroom egg muffins recipe.
Convenience on Keto
One of the things that was kind of a drag when I first started keto was that I had to cook. All. The. Time.
Gone were the days of mindlessly eating out several days a week or picking up prepared meals at the store.
For the most part, it ranges from hard to impossible to get grab and go foods that work in a ketogenic diet.
But that meant I was spending a lot of time cooking. Since then I have figured out ways to cut down on my kitchen time while eating delicious, healthy, and keto meals.
This recipe is a great example of that.
I don’t know about you, but I’m certainly not going to eat 12 egg muffins in one sitting. That’s what makes this recipe perfect, because you can make it ahead on Sunday and have breakfast ready to go all week.
Obviously, if you’ve got a large family you might have to scale up.
It doesn’t take a ton of time out of your weekend, and they heat up quickly in the mornings. I suppose you could eat them cold, but I prefer to take the time to warm them up a bit.
How to Make it Even Faster
If you’re really looking to cut some time out of this recipe, you’ve got options. They might cost you some cash, but there are definitely ways to speed it up.
First, buy chopped frozen spinach. That way you don’t have to mess with washing and chopping it yourself.
Just make sure the spinach you buy is just spinach, and it doesn’t have any sauce or other ingredients that may not be keto.
There is some time involved with heating it up, but you can work on other things while that is happening.
Next, buy canned mushrooms. You can usually find “pieces and stems” that may already be small enough for your liking, and they’re super cheap.
You can sometimes find onion that has already been chopped, so that will save you some time and tears as well.
