This is one of my favorite new recipes because it’s easy, it’s delicious and it’s perfectly portioned. I make them over the weekend and store the leftovers in the refrigerator. I give them a quick reheat and enjoy the egg cups for the next couple of days. For less than 300 calories, the nearly 20 grams high-quality protein and fat really work together to keep you satisfied for hours.
- 8 slices of lean Canadian bacon
- 8 eggs
- 1/2 cup chopped scallions
- Pepper to taste
Bake in a 375-degree preheated oven for 12-15 minutes till the white looks set but the egg is set and yolk is still slightly runny. Top with chopped scallions and serve.
Servings: 4 (2 baked eggs is one serving)
