Start the Day Right with Bacon and Egg Cups for Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Thus, breakfast should both be nutritious and filling. I cannot reiterate enough how I make it a point to make sure that my family and I always have breakfast every day. Normally I would just cook bacon in the baking rack and serve it with toast and fried eggs. However, as I was watching Food Network, I decided that these bacon and eggs breakfast cups are a nice twist to the usual bacon and eggs breakfast.

This recipe takes a bit longer to cook so what I do is pre-cook the bacon the night before and just keep it in the fridge. The next day, when I cook it with the eggs, the bacon strips are still crispy. Saves time and effort in preparing breakfast!

Bacon and Eggs Breakfast, Anyone? 

Bacon, when eaten moderately, can be nutritious, too. Since bacon is made from pork, some people avoid eating it due to a number of health concerns such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure. However, bacon contains 50% monounsaturated fat which mostly consists of oleic acid. This is the same fatty acid that olive oil is known for. The high-fat content in bacon is essentially healthy and is not as harmful as we thought it was. However, due to the high salt content of bacon, you may want to consume it as a minimum especially if you have high blood pressure or kidney problems.

On the other hand, eggs too were initially thought of as high in cholesterol. Eggs are a rich source of protein. Just like bacon, people thought that eggs are high in cholesterol and should not be eaten by those with cholesterol problems and high blood pressure. However, recent studies have shown that eggs are good for heart health because they contain betaine and choline. In addition, the cholesterol found in eggs is good cholesterol or HDL. Still, make sure you eat them in moderation.
