What is eating "healthy?" One of the sayings I carry with me from my mother is "moderation in all things." That, to me, is healthy. With very few exceptions, most food is neither good or bad in itself. It's how you use it that matters. (My main exception? Processed sugar! VERY BAD!)
I love eggs, and have recently discovered, as you know if you follow my viewpoints, that fat in and of itself can have a key role in our diets. Mainly, it helps you feel full, or satiated, and also provides important nutrients. Clearly, the more natural and unprocessed the source, the better.
That is why I love to pair my sister's home-laid duck eggs with Applegate Farms bacon. Add a fresh green salad with avocado and I'm good to go!
High Fat Low Carb Bacon Egg Nests
2 slices bacon
1 oz Colby Jack cheese (or cheese of choice)
Preheat oven to 400. Cut bacon to line the bottom of rounded muffin tin (I love this orb cake pan, but you can use a regular muffin tin if needed), 1 piece per tin. Bake bacon for about 15 min, then crack an egg into each bacon cup and top each egg with 1/2 slice of cheese, salt and pepper. Bake 7-10 more minutes or until whites of egg are cooked, cheese is melted, and yolk is set to your liking.
