Feta-tastic, Egg, Veggie and Bacon Bites

IMAG1527-1-1-1My friend David posted a video of an amazing looking recipe on my FB wall the other day and it involved bacon, of course.  So, I decided to make some adjustments and make my own version and I was thrilled with the results!  Paleo friendly and protein rich, these breadless bites made an excellent dinner with a side of fresh greens and some grapes.

Ingredients:

1 package of Maple flavored Bacon

six eggs with yolk, separated

1/2 cup feta and bleu cheese mix

salt and pepper to taste

pinch of oregano

crushed red pepper flakes

pureed avocado

1/2 cup diced tomatoes

crushed garlic

1/3 cup diced onion

1. Cook bacon – but not too crispy

2. Wrap bacon around cupcake pan and place a small piece of bacon in the bottom of each cupcake tin. 

3. Combine egg whites with garlic, onion, tomatoes,  salt and pepper. 

4. Spoon 1/4 cup of the mixture into each tin. 

5. Top each cupcake with egg yolk.  Top egg yolk with 1 tablespoon of cheese mixture. 

6. Season with oregano to taste.

7. Once cooled, add avocado to the top. 

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.
