Recipe: Bacon Nests - Post Workout Low Carb Breakfast - Perfect for Lunchboxes too!

350g streaky bacon
300g spinach, steamed, well drained.
6 large eggs
1,5 block feta cheese, crumbled
freshly ground black pepper to taste 

Preheat oven to 230 °C.
Grease and line a muffin tray, a 6 tart tin (not loose bottom) or 6 ramekins with tightly arranged streaky bacon to form 6 bacon nests/baskets.

Roast in the oven for 20 – 25 minutes or until the bacon is 95% cooked with crispy edges. The bacon may curl and buckle a bit when baked, don’t worry! When you add the filling the shape will be retained.

Make sure all the liquid is squeezed out of the steamed spinach and roughly chop.
Sprinkle the bacon nests with feta and spinach then crack and whole egg into each one. Sprinkle with black pepper and bake for a further 6-8 minutes or until the egg is set to your liking. Some of the egg may leak through the bacon, this is perfect!

Carefully use a palette knife to remove from the tray and serve immediately.

Tip: These are rather lovely served at room temperature or chilled for the lunchbox or picnic. Just make sure the egg yolk is cooked through to prevent a mess.
