Gluten Free Bacon and Egg Nests

Gluten Free Bacon and Egg Nests Recipe

When I was a kid, we didn’t often eat eggs for breakfast – we were a more of a “Continental Breakfast” kind of family – toast, cereal, juice, that sort of thing.

Eggs for breakfast in our family were usually reserved for special occasions, being ill, or feeling blue. In the case of feeling blue and needing a little cheering up, my mom would make toad in a hole – bread with a circle cut out, into which went an egg and the whole thing got fried up.

I was more of a “protein for breakfast” kind of mom when it came to raising my own children and eggs were a constant staple at our breakfast table. Which meant in order to keep things interesting, I needed to come up with new ways to serve eggs.

I love these Bacon and Egg Nests – everything I love for breakfast in one pretty little package that also happens to be delicious! It also happens that if I were feeling blue and was served these eggs, I would be certain to cheer right up!

Recipe notes: I use nitrate free bacon, pastured, cage free eggs (like Nature’s Yoke) and chives for my herbs. You can use any herb or combination of herbs you like. For dairy free, simply substitute the Parmesan with dairy free Parmesan substitute.
