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.
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.
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!
