The keto diet, which is short for ketogenic, is a low-carb diet which triggers the body to produce ketones, causing your body to burn fat. Although the keto diet has been around for a long time, it has become popular again in the last year or so. You can find out more about the keto diet at this link.
If you would like to prep these keto muffins ahead of time, you can store just the egg mixture in the refrigerator and add the rest the morning of cooking.
Cheesy Bacon Egg Keto Muffins
To begin making the cheesy bacon egg keto muffins, gather the ingredients: eggs, melted butter, bacon crumbles, havarti cheese, chopped chives, garlic powder, ricotta cheese, and salt and pepper. Preheat the oven to 350.
In a small bowl, or large measuring cup, whisk the eggs. Then add in the ricotta cheese. Whisk until well combined.
Next add chives to the mixture. I recommend using fresh chives, rather than dried chives. Fresh herbs always pack a punch and gives a brighter flavor. If using dried chives, cut down a on the amount (about 2 teaspoons of dried herbs versus 2 tablespoons of fresh).
Now add in the garlic powder and salt and pepper. Give everything a good mix. If you would like to prep these keto muffins ahead of time, you can put a lid on this mixture and save it until cooking day.
Next add the crumbled bacon to the bottom of each greased muffin cup. There should be enough for 6 keto muffins.
Pour the egg mixture into the muffin cups, only filling about 3/4 of the way full.
Now it is time to add the cheesy goodness! If you have never had Havarti cheese, it is a semi-soft mild cheese which originally came from Denmark. Some people compare the taste of Havarti cheese to Monterrey jack, but the longer it ages, it takes on a sharper, nuttier flavor. This cheese is what makes these keto muffins.
Bake the keto muffins for 15-20 minutes, or until they have risen and are set in the middle.
