Serve warm and add optional chopped chives.
You can have 2 muffins, just double the nutrition facts and carbs.
Try to find the lowest sugar possible in your bacon.
It's best to buy block cheese instead of shredded as shredded cheese has potato starch in it.
You can wrap the remainders in plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. If you double the recipe and have more, you can wrap and freeze as well.

How to Make Bacon in the Oven
When I am making these Keto Egg Muffins or just Bacon for a Keto snack, I use a baking sheet and wrap in aluminum foil.
Add the bacon to the pan or use a cooling rack on top of it and place the bacon on that. I set the oven at 425 degrees and put the bacon in the oven immediately. In 15 minutes it is usually cooked just right. When I take out the pan, I set it on an angle with something under the edge, so the bacon grease drains from the bacon. I later pour the grease into a jar for the refrigerator to use with other Keto recipes.
I usually turn my kitchen fan on so the whole house doesn’t smell of bacon. That is up to you.
If you are looking for a great recipe book that shares Keto Diet for Beginners, this is my favorite one for reference.
