How to Make These Keto Salami Egg Cups


First, preheat your oven to 400F. Then prepare all the ingredients.

Step 1: Line Your Egg Cups

Then, shred the cheddar cheese by yourself to save money. Store-bought shredded cheese often has additives to prevent the cheese from bulking up.

So, definitely get your cheese unshredded!

Grease a regular-sized muffin pan. You can do this with olive oil and a silicone brush.

You can also use a non-stick cooking spray. Olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil sprays would all work great and still be keto-friendly.

Line each muffin section with four slices of thin-sliced salami. Do try to cover all the muffin section.

When the salami cooks, they are going to wilt down and create a crispy cup for the egg.

It’s kind of like making your own muffin liner, but this one is edible and delicious!

When you are done creating the salami cups, you can add the cheese.

Add about one tablespoon of shredded cheese to each of the muffin cups.

Step 2: Fill the Muffin Tins with Eggs

Carefully crack an egg, one at a time, into each cup.

If you are nervous about potentially getting eggshells into the cup, there’s a chef trick for you!

Simply crack each egg into a small ramekin or bowl first. Then pour into the muffin cups.

This will prevent any eggshells from getting into the rest of the food. You have the chance to clean it out before pouring it on top of the cheese.

Sprinkle the eggs with the seasonings. Bake in the 400F oven for about 12 minutes.

Let the salami egg cups cool for a few moments before trying to remove them from the pan.

Remove them from the pan and serve.

You can eat them alone or as a meal. Don’t forget to try some of the dipping sauce choices!

How to Store These Breakfast Cups?

You don’t need to eat all the egg cups right away. You can store them in the refrigerator for an easy grab-and-go snack or breakfast.

It’s best to store them flat in an air-tight container like this one. You could even freeze them!

Freezing them would be a great idea if you are eating lunch on the go.

That’s because they will be frozen when you leave the house. But, by lunchtime, they will have thawed and ready to enjoy or reheat.

Finally, they can be kept in the freezer for 3-6 months.
