Pro Tips and Timesaver Shortcuts

  • You can make these the evening before and store in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
  • You can use bacon bits, but real bacon is so much better.

Variations, Notes, and Substitutions

  • You can substitute egg whites for the whole egg.
  • You can substitute crumbled sausage for the bacon.
  • You can substitute turkey bacon for pork bacon.
  • Add other items such as fresh spinach, Parmesan cheese.
