Keto Egg Muffins with Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese

I make new variations of egg muffins just for myself quite often, but these Keto Egg Muffins with Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese were such a tasty combination that I had to share the recipe!

One of the most popular posts on my blog is the Low-Carb and Keto Egg Muffins Master Recipe, and that post gives guidelines for making egg muffins out of what’s in the fridge. I do have a couple of specific egg muffin recipes on the blog, but mostly I use that master recipe and make egg muffins for myself with whatever strikes my fancy or what’s available in the fridge. But when I made these Keto Egg Muffins with Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese it was such a wow combination that I decided I had to make them again and take photos so I could share the recipe on the blog.

This new egg muffin variety uses broccoli, bacon, cheese, green onions, and eggs and those are all things I’d normally have in the house. I hope that’s going to be true for you too, but use the tips in the master recipe if you need to adapt to what’s in your fridge. This recipe uses 18 eggs to make 12 large muffins, and one of these tasty muffins is breakfast for me. The egg muffins keep well in the fridge and are easy to reheat in the microwave, and this is a perfect recipe for Weekend Food Prep, where you cook things on the weekend that you’re going to eat all week; enjoy!

What Muffin Cups Did I Use?

I always use silicone baking cups for making egg muffins. I’ve had various sizes through the years, but now this Jumbo Muffin Cup from Chambers Bay (affiliate link) is the one I use most consistently. This muffin cup is 3.5 inches across and 1.75 inches deep. And I love the pastel colors!

How to Make Keto Egg Muffins with Broccoli, Bacon, and Cheese:

(Scroll down for complete recipe including nutritional information.)

  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C and spray silicone muffin cups with non-stick spray.
  2. Cut up enough fresh broccoli to make 4 cups broccoli florets.
  3. Heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and cook the broccoli about 5 minutes over medium-high heat, stirring several time. Broccoli will not be fully cooked but it should turn bright green.
  4. Spray silicone muffin cups with non-stick spray and divide the broccoli between the muffin cups.
  5. I used pre-cooked bacon from Costco that I just crisped in the microwave and then cut into short slices, but if you’re using raw bacon you need to cook in a pan until crisp.
  6. Divide bacon between the muffins cups and then put some cheese in each muffin cup over the broccoli.
  7. Put some sliced green onion on top of the cheese.
  8. Beat eggs until they’re well combined.
  9. Pour some egg into each of the muffin cups, let it sink down, then add some more until all the egg is used.
  10. I like to use a fork and gently “stir” so ingredients are well-distributed.
  11. Bake about 30 minutes, or until eggs are completely set and firm on the top.
  12. Serve hot. Egg Muffins can be kept in the fridge and reheated during the week.

    1. Preheat oven to 375F/190C and spray silicone muffin cups with non-stick spray.
    2. Cut up enough fresh broccoli to make 4 cups broccoli florets.

    7. Put some sliced green onion on top of the cheese.
    8. Beat eggs until they're well combined.

  1. Do you have any suggestions for using your egg muffin recipes to make Instapot egg bites? I always love your egg muffin ideas.

    • Sorry I haven’t ever made those. I vaguely remember seeing them but I don’t even know enough about them to give any suggestions. Glad you’re been enjoying the egg muffins though!

  2. What size is the cup used for measuring the broccoli and cheese?

  3. Would these muffins freeze well?

    • Some people do freeze this type of egg muffin, but when they thaw the frozen muffins release a lot of liquid. I greatly prefer just to keep them in the fridge where they stay good for at least a week, probably longer.
