Egg & Bacon ‘muffins’

This is only the second recipe on my site featuring bacon.

As a predominantly plant-based eater I guess I feel somewhat weird about posting such things but... I do love bacon.

Only last year did this newfound love launch and it was born from sampling real bacon. Quality meat, cured and prepared with skill and respect, cooked with love. What a difference!

Despite the title of this post, let it be known that the bacon in this recipe is completely optional.

If it's not your jam - simply leave it out. I have and the recipe is still delicious!

This recipe is absolutely winning for a quick breakfast in the morning.
My hubby was a HUGE fan when I last made them.

Plus they taste great as leftovers so enjoy them cold and in a flash before your workday.
