Two American classics rolled into one today! These crispy bacon cups are filled with a low-carb creamy spinach and artichoke dip and are seriously good.

I love to serve these bacon cups as an appetiser or to take on a picnic. I took them to a BBQ i was invited to last week and, they went down a storm but they’re also great for a quick, on the go keto snack.

They store well in the fridge for up to 3 days and can also be frozen and reheated in the oven. Enjoy, guys.

Food is one of life’s most powerful medicines. I’m a true testament that once you find the right approach for you, you can overcome poor health through the healing power of food.

I believe the secret to radiant health starts and ends with a healthy gut so my recipes are all grain, gluten and refined sugar free. Most are also dairy-free.

Oh wow, Jo! This recipe is bananas! Bacon and spinach make such a great combination! What temperature do you suggest I use to bake the bacon cups?


Thank you Kelly! I've used other options for similar recipes - you could try parma ham (prosciutto do parma) or even this simplified Fat Head dough: Easy Keto Mini Brie Tarts
