Noms.


The other day I tweeted that I was making some lil egg bite thingys and I would post the recipe. So here we are. The boyfriend and I are on our second week of Paleo and it's going great! It's actually super easy (as long as I don't think about chips) and we're both feeling amazing already. It's incredible how your body truly feels good when you eat good, and feels like crap when you eat crap. So breakfast is really our hardest part, we've been boiling eggs at night to take for breakfast in the morning, but that's getting boring already. So I made a more exciting morning egg meal!

Like the other 2 recipes I've posted, this will be really simple AND you can really make it however you want. I'm all about simplicity. So although you can add whatever you like, here's how I made mine. 

Eggs
Bacon
Spinach
Red and green bell peppers

If you're not on Paleo, feel free to add some cheese. And I've seen some recipes that have used sausage, mushrooms (barf!), chicken, onion, ...anything really! But simple is the name in my game. <- corny.


First, I pre-heated the oven to 425. This is really important to me because I never used to pre-heat an oven until the bf told me I had to. I had read it a million times in instructions of french fries and stuff, but didn't know why. So I just never did. Ooops!

I cut up the peppers, one of each, and a couple handfuls of spinach and set them aside. Then I took about 5 pieces of bacon (not enough!) and cut those up and threw them in the pan to cook. While the bacon was cooking, I started cracking all the eggs into a bowl and "whisking" them. I used " " on whisking because I broke my whisk last year and now use a fork. 

Stop judging. 

Anyways, I used 12 eggs, but I think that was too much. You'll see why in the below picture, total overflow. Poof! I seasoned the eggs with salt, pepper and garlic powder, but season however you like. When the bacon was done, I filled the muffin tins about 3/4 full of the eggs (grease the pan with olive oil or something similar like PAM spray), then added the peppers, spinach and bacon. 

I had the oven pre-heated to 425 and let them cook for about 20-25 minutes. Ovens vary so I suggest checking them at 20 minutes. 


As you can see, they definitely puffed up way more than I expected. Next time I will try a few less eggs, fill the spots a little less, and add MORE BACON. 

If you try these out, let me know how it works out for you. Tweet me your pix!

  7. I love to make mini fritattas. I will have to make this version for the mister. I will just eat the bacon part bc my middle name is bacon. Well, it should be. My parents were so rude and didn't name me aptly.

  14. I have these in the oven right now! They smell delicious and I might just have to have one as a late-night snack, instead of waiting till breakfast! I used sausage from our local farm instead of bacon (it is all frozen) and kale instead of the spinach. OOOHmanohman do they look delicious! We will be freezing them to make sure they keep all week, and just heating them in the micro every morning.. I am so excited!! :)

  16. Maybe, next time you make them, freeze a single one and try it in about a week or two. That way if it's terrible (which by ingredients there is no reason it shouldn't freeze beautifully) you haven't wasted much. :)

    Ps. I'm making these tonight! No more up at 5 am to make hubby breakfast for me. Woop woop. ;)
