There are many different kinds of low carb baked egg cup recipes, but I particularly love the layering effect and all the different flavors in this version. Once you start making these breakfast muffins you'll see how versatile they are – and I'm sure you'll think of your own combination of ingredients!
How to Make Low Carb Layered Breakfast Muffins
Spray a six-hole muffin tin with non-stick spray. For the first layer, add some chopped cooked bacon, then add some baby spinach leaves on top (stalks removed). You can roughly chop the spinach if you like.
Whisk together eggs and heavy cream, then pour it over the spinach.
Grind over some black pepper and finally sprinkle the muffins with shredded cheese.
Bake them in a preheated oven for around 10-12 minutes until the egg has set. They will be all puffed up straight out of the oven, but will deflate a little as they cool.
Leave for a few minutes to cool, then remove from the pan and serve.
