Breakfast Bacon Bites

Bacon is back in my life.

It wasn't a normal part of my diet for a couple years--not because of diet restrictions, but primarily because of popularity. I know, stubborn. 

You know when you've heard one of your favorite songs on the radio a bunch of times and then you are sad because you don't want to listen to it anymore? Same logic was used towards bacon. If you all don't recall, a couple years ago it was cool to make everything with bacon- cupcakes, ice cream, every sandwich known to man--heck there's even bacon flavored gum! It was cool to eat bacon. I got tired of it and moved on.

I lost my dang mind.

It's worth a public confession... I don't know what I was thinking! Bacon has now re-entered my plate and has been a daily grub for Lang, LeBron and I. Whew. The dark days are over, my friend.

So here's one of the baconator recipes consumed this week. I was inspired by this post I saw on pinterest. It's absolutely genius. We had fun with this one and it was a great success. If you have your staple omelet, I'd encourage you to try that as your egg mixture. There's a lot of flexibility here! My twist is down below.

Breakfast Bacon Bites
*my recipe is for half a muffin tin; just double it for a full 12 muffin tin

6 strips of bacon
4 eggs
1/4 cup diced onion
1/3 cup chopped spinach
1/4 cup feta cheese

Preheat the oven to 350.

1. Slightly Pre-cook Bacon
You can do this in the microwave or in a skillet on medium high heat. I had my bacon warm up and sizzle for less than a minute and then took it off the stove and laid it flat. Barely cooked. This helps with the crispiness.

2. Whip up Egg Mixture
Saute onions in the bacon pan. Meanwhile, whip the four eggs. Once the onions are translucent  add them to the egg mixture along with the spinach and feta. If using a different cheese, add a dash of salt.

3. Assemble cups!
Lightly grease a muffin tin and wrap the bacon slices around the cups. It doesn't have to lay directly against the pan. Once set, use a 1/4 measuring cup to pour in the mixture.

Put the eggs in the oven for 25-30 minutes, depending on your oven.

These suckers can be removed almost immediately from the pan. The perfect grab and go breakfast and reheat really well. Make them for the week and you're set!
