Bacon & Egg Bouquets

This morning I was browsing through my Comfort Food Cookbook Diet by Taste of Home and came across a recipe they called “Bird’s Nest Breakfast cups” I got inspired and added my own twist on it and since I think they look like little roses I’m calling them Bacon & Egg Bouquets. They’re really good, and totally healthy! I originally planned to have these ready for Scott but unfortunately for him, time was tight and the weather was bad. The OCD blogger in me would not let him even try 1 until I snapped about 200 photos. He had to leave with out even a tiny taste. Sorry Babe, better luck next time! So I had these delsih bouquets all to myself! I’m so cruel.

Serves 4 – Makes 16 Mini Muffin “Bouquets”

Ingredients:

16 Pieces Turkey Bacon

1 ½ Cups Egg Whites (I used the whites from 10 Eggs)

½ Roma tomato- Diced

½ Avocado- Diced

Salt & Pepper to taste

Goat Cheese

Fresh Basil

Pre-Heat oven to 350°F.

Cook bacon on oiled/cooking sprayed griddle over medium-high heat. Do NOT cook fully just a minute or two on each side. Just enough to cook but not crisp.

Remove bacon from griddle and set aside.

Spray mini muffin cups with oil/cooking spray.

Line the muffin cups with one piece of bacon each; wrapping it around completely.

In a small bowl (preferably one with a pour spout, I used a large liquids measuring cup) whisk the egg whites.

Stir in tomato and avocado. (Or any other filler ingredients you choose)

Season with Salt

& Pepper

Slowly pour egg mix into each bacon bouquet.

Top with Goat cheese crumbles.

Bake for 15 minutes or until all egg bouquets have set.

Remove and let cool slightly and plate them up.

Top with fresh basil.

Enjoy!!!

  1. Love how its wrapped in bacon..great presentation! Guests would be totally impressed too : )

  2. the bacon doesn’t unroll..you have so many cute ideas

    • Nope! It stays perfectly placed. The egg kind of “glues” it together. Some egg may spill out around the sides but it comes off easily if you want a cleaner look.
      Thanks! I appreciate the compliment, always thinking over here!

    Wow! You put a lot of time and thought into this….I don’t think you’re any part-time blogger. I think you have a serious Sandra Lee tendencies! I admire how her work grew out of her life story. Really.

    I’m going to be making my vegetarian recipe tonight as part of our dinner. I was thinking of just pairing with tater tots and having a sort of “breakfast for dinner” night but if you have any other suggestions on sides that I could serve with it, please let me know.

  14. These look awesome! We love turkey bacon in our house and I think my family would like these. Very clever.
