Smokey’s Scrumptious Low-Carb Egglets
Eggs are not just for breakfast anymore. We enjoying making them for dinner or even appetizers, every once in awhile. They’re creative and can be fun for for all. You can add any vegetable or meat to these egglets and the outcome will be deeeeelish. We like ours a very basic egglets, with mushrooms, bacon, and cheese.
This recipe takes us roughly 20 minutes to prepare and then an additional 30 minutes to bake.
When you’re heading to the grocery store, all you need to purchase are…
- 14 Eggs
- 2 8 oz. Cans of Mushrooms
- 1 Cup of Half & Half
- 1 tsp. of Pepper
- 1 Pkg. of Bacon
- 1 Small Container of Sour Cream
- 1 Small Pkg. of Shredded Cheese of Choice
We begin by placing our bacon in our skillet, cover, and will cook on medium heat, until the bacon is to your liking. My husband likes his bacon crispy and I like mine a little more tender. So, we cook our bacon accordingly
When our bacon has fully cooked, we’ll place the bacon on paper towels to soak up the excess grease and will then chop into tiny pieces. We’ll keep our grease in the pan and will not yet discard.
We’ll then place our bacon aside, drain our canned mushrooms, and will fry our mushrooms in our bacon grease. This will give our mushrooms a smokey bacon flavor.
We’ll then drain our mushrooms and place them aside for later.
We’ll crack our eggs into a large mixing bowl and will then beat until well whipped.
Next, we’ll add our cream, pepper, and will continue beating until our mixture is fully blended.
We’ll then take our muffin pan, spray with cooking spray and will ladle enough of the egg mixture to fill half of each muffin indentation
Next, we’ll add a little bit of bacon to each dish, followed by mushrooms, and then will top each with a pinch of our shredded cheese.
We’ll then preheat our oven to 350F degrees and will place our muffin pan in for approximately 30 minutes.
The way we can tell whether or not our egglets are done is by poking each egglet with a toothpick. If the toothpick, when removed, is clean and absent of any egg mixture, your egglet has fully cooked.
Also, if the egglet pulls aways from the pan, that is another way to determine whether the egglets are fully cooked.
When our egglets have finished cooking, we’ll remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5-10 minutes.
We’ll then remove and will place on a serving plate.
This recipe made us 15 scrumptious and moist egglets.
We enjoy our egglets with a dollop of sour cream, a spoonful of salsa, and sometimes a pinch of shredded cheese. .
