I created this yummy new way to eat your eggs. It gives you that craving for a breakfast pastry, but without all the flour and carbs! It’s all egg! This is great for my Type 1 Diabetes condition because it is all protein and no harmful processed carbs that would spike my blood sugar!
Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:
The addition of bacon and cheese make this recipe a meal I would recommend to only eat occasionally if you are an individual with heart disease or high blood pressure.

1/4 cup grated mixed cheddar cheese (any kind that you want)
1/4 cup chopped chives
1/4 cup crumbled bacon (cooked)
pepper (to taste)
1. Separate eggs, putting egg whites in 1 large bowl and yolks in 2 separate bowls.
2. Whip whites until stiff peaks form, looking like whipped cream.
3. Carefully fold in the cheese, chives, and bacon.
4. Spoon into 2 mounds on to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Make a deep well in the center of each mound.
5. Bake mounds at 450 degrees for 3 minutes. Then take out of oven.
6. Then add 1 yolk to each mound’s well and season with pepper.
7. Bake back in the oven until the yolks are set and the egg whites are golden. Around 2-3 minutes. Leave in for longer if you do not want runny, sunny-side up styled eggs.
8. Serve and enjoy!
