  • 1 egg, divided
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 piece cooked bacon, crumbled
  • 1 Tablespoon green onion, chopped
  • 1-2 Tablespoons cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/2 toasted English muffin or gluten-free muffin, hash browns or greens


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet by covering with a piece of parchment paper.
  2. Separate the yolk from the egg white. Keep the yolk in it's own bowl. Place the egg white in the bowl of an electric mixer.
  3. Beat egg white until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in bacon, green onion & cheddar cheese.
  4. Place mound of egg white on cookie sheet. If making more than 1 serving make sure they don’t touch.
  5. Place in oven for 3 minutes. Remove, make small indent in top and slip egg yolk into center carefully. You don’t want the yolk to break!
  6. Place back in oven and bake 4 more minutes.
  7. Remove from paper carefully and place on English muffin. Serve immediately.
