Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup grated mixed cheddar cheese (any kind that you want)
  • 1/4 cup chopped chives
  • 1/4 cup cooked crumbled bacon
  • pepper

Instructions

  1. Separate eggs, putting egg whites in 1 large bowl and yolks in 2 separate bowls.
  2. Whip whites until stiff peaks form, looking like whipped cream.
  3. Carefully fold in the cheese, chives, and bacon.
  4. Spoon into 2 mounds on to a parchment-lined baking sheet. Make a deep well in the center of each mound.
  5. Bake mounds at 450 degrees for 3 minutes. Then take out of oven.
  6. Then add 1 yolk to each mound’s well and season with pepper.
  7. Bake back in the oven until the yolks are set and the egg whites are golden. Around 2-3 minutes. Leave in for longer if you do not want runny, sunny-side up styled eggs.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
