Keto Breakfast Bacon & Egg ‘Muffins’

These little zero carb keto breakfast ‘muffins’ are something of a mini-frittata. They are very rich, so one batch could last you a couple of mornings (they store well in the fridge). Pop them in the microwave for a quick keto-friendly breakfast. Do change up the filling – mushroom, peppers and different cheese all work well. If you can’t be bothered with cleaning the muffin tin (eggs are notorious for sticking), use cupcake cases. One serving = 2 muffins.

Fats of Life® is a blog I run as a hobby. I love spending time on it, but did you know that I am also the author of two best-selling cookbooks? KETO KITCHEN (2020) and LAZY KETO KITCHEN (2021) – both available worldwide and very well-priced. I have a third book on the way: BUDGET KETO KITCHEN, (coming mid-2022).
Perhaps its time to start building up your Keto Kitchen collection if you have not already done so. Not only will my books make beautiful Christmas stocking fillers for loved ones interested in a low carb lifestyle, but you could simply treat YOURSELF! Your family (whether they live keto or not) will not be disappointed with all your exciting, delicious creations!

Calories: 327kcal | Carbohydrates: 0g | Protein: 22g | Fat: 27g


  • 8 rashers streaky smoked bacon, chopped
  • 6 eggs
  • 120 g (4.2 oz) unsweetened almond milk
  • 70 g (2.5 oz) Cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • salt and white pepper
  • 1 TB unsalted butter, to grease


  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven). This is 200°C for conventional ovens (or 400°F / gas mark 6).
  • Fry the chopped bacon in a hot pan and set aside to cool.
  • Whisk the eggs and almond milk and add the grated cheese and bacon bits. Season with salt and white pepper.
  • Grease a muffin tray with the butter and scoop the mixture into 8 parts of the muffin tray tin. (Do not pour the mixture, as all the bacon will end up in the last few ones. If you scoop, you will have an even distribution of bacon)
  • Bake for 20 minutes. Use a sharp knife to loosen around the edges and remove.

A new-and-improved version of this delicious recipe features in my cookbook KETO KITCHEN.
