Sometimes you just need an easy, fuss-free breakfast meal and these air fryer egg cups are the perfect option! They are not just keto but also carnivore in case that's the diet you follow.

They are easy to scale up or down so you can make just the amount you need. One to two egg cups will be enough for one serving, especially if you serve them alongside some sliced avocado or tomatoes, bell peppers, roasted mushrooms or cooked spinach.

The eggs yolks will be fully cooked but if you prefer them runny, simply reduce the cooking time by a few minutes.

Recipe Tips

If you don't have an air fryer, simply bake these in the oven. To do that bake the bacon at 200 °C/ 400 °F (fan assisted), or 220 °C/ 425 °F (conventional) for about 10 minutes and then add the remaining ingredients and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes (depending on whether you prefer softer or fully set egg yolks).

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
