As my CrossFit Gym is one a 30-day Paleo diet challenge, it has inspired me to eat these baked eggs in Canadian bacon cups.
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.
Two baked eggs has 290 calories and nearly 20 grams high-quality protein. Partner them with some fresh fruit and your coffee or tea and you’ll be 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)
