I think it’s quite obvious we love farm fresh eggs around here, along with adoring our chickens who produce them!  That’s why I’m happy to partner with Nellie’s today to bring you this delicious breakfast recipe in celebration of National Egg Month.

Farm Fresh Asiago and Bacon Egg Bites

Though we raise our own chickens, there are time when I need to supplement our egg reserves, especially around holidays and picnic time, when we are using plenty for recipes!  When I need to do this, I’m very conscientious of what eggs we choose because we certainly don’t wish to serve our guests anything less than the farm fresh best and as a chicken owner, I only wish to support companies that treat chickens the way we do – with loads of respect!

Nellie’s is a company that fits my criteria.  They are committed to providing better lives for hens by ensuring humane treatment and working with small family farms who offer sustainably produced eggs. The are the first Certified Humane® producer in the US. The chickens are never caged and Nellie’s adheres to the strictest standards of humane animal treatment, safety, and environmental sustainability.  That’s a company mission that certainly matches my personal values.

To celebrate National Egg Month, I’m sharing my new favorite breakfast recipe to make with Nellie’s eggs.  I saw egg cups being offered in our grocer’s freezer recently and thought for sure I could whip up something better and fresher at home.  This inspired a little experimenting, tweaking some older casserole-type recipes handed-down to me to come up with a muffin version.  A variety of cheese, meats and herbs later, I settled on my favorite version which features Asiago cheese, bacon and simple spices.  The result is truly wonderful, a little gourmet egg bite that’s terrific for breakfast or brunch and pairs well with your morning cup o’ Jo.  Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!
