Full recipe in video below


  • 10 slices good-quality bacon (center cut or bacon)

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, sliced (optional)

  • 3 cups packed organic spinach

  • 6 large eggs

  • ¼ cup milk

  • Freshly ground salt and pepper

  • ⅓ cup feta or goat cheese crumbles (or any cheese you'd like)- I used fat free Feta

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Add bacon slices to muffin pan (we’re only using 10 of the muffin cups) and wrap bacon in a circle around the edges of the tin. The bacon will likely overlap a bit, but that’s okay. Bake for 15 minutes.

  • While the bacon is cooking, you can saute your veggies: In a large skillet, add in olive oil, garlic and mushrooms; saute for 5 minutes or until mushrooms cook down and begin to turn a slight golden brown. Once that happens, add in spinach and cook for another 2 minutes or until spinach wilts. Set aside.

  • In a large bowl, whisk together eggs and almond milk. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

  • When bacon is done cooking, remove from oven and rearrange the slices. You can drain some of the grease if you’d like but it I like to keep it in because it helps the muffins not stick to the pan. Most likely they will have shrunk up during baking; simply pull the slices back with a fork towards the edges so that’s there’s enough room to add in the veggies and egg mixture.

  • Evenly distribute veggies between each muffin cup, then pour egg mixture in each cup, filling a little more than halfway, or so that there is even distribution. Sprinkle with feta cheese. 

  • Bake for 15 minutes. Once done, cool for two minutes, then run the edge of a knife around each egg cup and remove from pan. Serve with a side of avocado slices. Makes 10 egg cups. 1 serving = 2 egg cups.

Jenn, these are amazing and were so easy to make. Even after not reading the directions fully and not pre-cooking the bacon, they came out great. I love all your meal ideas and you're such an inspiration of perseverance and stick-to-it-tiveness!
