Egg bites with turkey bacon and chives


  • 8 oz. turkey bacon, finely chopped
  • ½ tbsp butter
  • 16 large eggs
  • 1½ cups whole milk
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 tbsp dried chives or fresh chives, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C) and line a 13″ × 9″ (33 x 23 cm) baking dish with parchment paper — the paper should come up the sides of the dish. Place the dish in a deep roasting tin (large enough to comfortably fit the dish you’re using for the egg bites). Add hot tap water (not boiling) to the roasting tin until it reaches about 1-inch (2.5 cm) up the outer sides of the baking dish.
  2. Finely chop the turkey bacon. Add butter to a large frying pan over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the turkey bacon and fry until crispy.
  3. Crack the eggs into a large bowl and add the whole milk, salt, and pepper. Mix with an immersion blender until smooth. If using a hand whisk, pour the egg mixture through a sieve after whisking to remove any remaining lumps or egg shells.
  4. Pour the egg mixture into the baking dish lined with parchment paper. Sprinkle with crispy bacon and chives. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour.
  5. Let the egg bites cool slightly, then lift them out of the dish by holding the sides of the parchment paper. Cut into 24 squares (if making 6 servings), which is 4 egg bites per serving.


You can use precooked turkey bacon or deli turkey to save time.

Bake them in a muffin tin for individual servings. Brush the muffin tin cups with a little bit of melted butter and proceed with the recipe. Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Serving suggestions

Top each egg bite with a dollop of sour cream and more chives.

Smoked salmon makes a wonderful alternative to bacon.


These egg bites stay fresh for up to 5 days in the fridge in an air-tight container.


These are great cold, but if you prefer a warm breakfast, reheat in the microwave for 30 seconds.
