I’m loving these easy keto Bacon Cheddar Egg Cups! They’re the perfect poppable on-the-go breakfast option. They also work wonderfully as a meal prep option, keeping for about 3 days in the refrigerator.

I like to eat these with a touch of hot sauce (have you tried our Fermented Sriracha?) or even unsweetened ketchup (you can make your own low-carb ketchup too!).

Be sure to use small or medium eggs in these as large eggs may spill over in the pan.

Ingredients (makes 6 cups)

  • 6 medium eggs
  • 1 cup grated turnip or kohlrabi (130 g/ 4.6 oz)
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked (180 g/ 6.4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese (57 g/ 2 oz)
  • pinch of salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Place the bacon in a hot pan and cook for a few minutes. Turn and cook for a few more minutes. The bacon should be cooked but still soft (not too crispy).
  2. Preheat oven to 190 °C/ 375 °F (conventional), or 170 °C/ 340 °F (fan assisted). Divide the grated turnip between 6 silicone muffin molds. Place a strip of bacon into the mold around the edges.

Hi! The ingredients list says eggs whisked but the eggs are whole in the phot snd the directions sat to crack an egg into the bacon cup!


Apologies, my mistake, that was a typo. You could use whisked eggs and mix them with the shredded cheese to make "frittata" cups though 😊


That's what I thought, thanks!
