What You Need:

  • Eggs – I use fresh eggs from our hens; a true dream come true for me, I will never not be excited about it 🙂
  • Milk – I used whole milk to help makes these as creamy and tender as possible. You can use your milk of choice
  • Turkey Bacon – you can use regular bacon as well
  • White Cheddar Cheese – I buy the block and shred it myself, it melts the best this way
  • Fresh Spinach – for nutrition, flavor and color!
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Avocado Oil Spray

Recipe Tips:

I love creating recipes that you can easily customize to your preferences and still have a delicious outcome. Here are a few tips/ideas for this recipe….

  • I used whole milk for added flavor and creaminess, you can lower the fat content by using a skim milk or your preference. It will still be super yummy!
  • I used turkey bacon but you can use regular bacon or even chopped Canadian bacon
  • The white cheddar has great sharp flavor and creaminess, but feel free to switch it up with your favorite cheese (mozzarella will lower the fat)
  • Make sure to cook these turkey bacon egg bites until just set for the best texture
  • To prevent sticking I love to use these silicone muffin liners
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days
  • Re-heat in the microwave for 45 – 60 seconds
