Turkey Bacon Egg Boats (95 calories)

A while back I had a pack of turkey bacon to use up & wanted to try making egg boats with them in the muffin tin. (I have a weakness for food made in muffin tins!) I found a lot of recipes using regular bacon, but I wasn't sure if the times & temperatures would be the same. After a while I stumbled on some cooking directions here. They turned out so tasty, and low-cal too!

For each boat you will need ~

1 large egg (70)
1 slice of turkey bacon (25-35 calories)
Dash of salt & pepper (0)

1) Preheat oven to 350. Overlap the ends of a slice of turkey bacon and place in muffin tin, flat edge down.

2) Fill the center of the bacon with the egg and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Bake for 17 minutes (or 15-16 minutes if you are planning on reheating them later).

Tips -
  • Anything with egg can be a pain to clean from the pan, so you may want to spray or rub a little oil in the bottom first (it might add 5 calories).
  • The bacon does not crisp up in this recipe & is more like a slice of ham. If you like a crispier bacon, try cooking it in a frypan before adding it.

    These egg boats are super quick to make, and just as simple to make for 1 person or a large crowd. You can play around with toppings like cheese and green onions, and they are easy to customize for picky eaters. You could also beat the egg first and try adding in some veggies & potatoes! Though some days, simple is best. :)
