Bacon-Wrapped Egg Muffins

Bacon-Wrapped Egg Muffins_700x366
I have been working on a breakfast muffin that could essentially be used as a substitute for many of the breakfast sandwiches you find at coffee shops.

My thinking behind this: “Why can’t I/you have a convenient, healthy, and tasty breakfast option to go with my morning coffee, but that I can make my own?” I can and so can you. Primally packed with protein, healthy saturated fat from coconut oil, organic vegetables, and a small amount of gluten-free flour, coconut flour in this case.

I used chicken sausage in this particular recipe, but a good wild-boar sausage or pork sausage would be work as well. I really liked the chicken/bacon combination. One or two muffins (or three for you big Primal boys) can be your breakfast. I usually eat one or two throughout the day for the perfect snack! Gluten-free bacon wrapped egg muffins…

Ingredients:

Dry:

Wet:

  • 2 links natural chicken sausage (1/2 lb)
  • 10 organic eggs
  • ¼ cup green bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup tomato, diced
  • ½ cup carrots, shredded
  • ¼ cup red onion, diced
  • ¼ cup green onion, diced
  • 2 Tbsp. coconut oil (similar to this one)

Other

  • 12 strips natural bacon (I used Applegate)

Directions:

1.)    Heat oven to 350° and grease 12-muffin tin with coconut oil.

2.)    In medium sauce pan, cook chicken sausage about ¾ of the way. As chicken cooks, dice vegetables. Set aside.

3.)    Add dry ingredients to large mixing bowl. Add wet ingredients and mix it up!

4.)    Wrap 12-muffin tin with a strip of bacon.

5.)    After mixing batter completely, pour equal amounts directly into bacon in the muffin tin.

6.)    Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes. Enjoy!

    These look amazing! I have never used potato starch. Do you think Tapioca Starch/flour would work as an acceptable substitute? Thanks :)!

      Hey Sarah, I actually prefer tapioca to potato, BUT sometimes I run out. You can sub potato/tapioca interchangeably with no issues!
