Bacon Freak Keto Feta and Bacon Breakfast Bake
This Bacon Freak Keto Feta & Bacon Breakfast Bake is an easy, baked strata recipe that uses eggs as its main ingredient along with Bacon Freak Firecracker Chili Bacon. Strata recipes always use eggs as its base and incorporate other ingredients to enhance on the flavor. This time it includes feta cheese, spinach, peppers, onions, and bacon. What makes this recipe extra easy is that it can be prepped ahead of time and popped in the oven in the morning. While preparing it ahead of time is easier, you can also cut corners using pre-cut peppers and onions. This also makes it the perfect casserole to meal prep for a brunch as well as a lunch with a side salad.
What inspired this Breakfast Bake?
I recently had gotten some new bacon that I wanted to try called Bacon Freak. While I certainly could have used some plain bacon, I made a point to use this flavor-enhanced bacon for my keto-friendly breakfast bake. I had gotten Apple Pie Bacon as well as the Firecracker Chili Bacon. My instinct was that the firecracker Chili Bacon would give it that extra kick of flavor and i was right. It was delicious!
For me, the combination of the kicked up bacon with my other strata ingredients made for such a flavorful breakfast casserole.
A breakfast casserole recipe?
Typically people only make these for special occasions because of the baking time. However, I make these on the weekend alotting for enough for leftovers as it reheats amazingly!
Because it is so simple in preparation, during the baking time allows me time with family.
So, after cooking the bacon until crisp (not overcooked) and crumbled, I added to my egg mixture with the vegetables and poured into my baking pan to bake the strata for about 40 minutes in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees. Next, I broiled it, while I watched it, for an additional minute in order to add get the top a little more golden in color.
Why this bacon?
In this brunch dish, I’m using Bacon Freak Bacon, which is a line of bacon that enhances the flavor of any dish or meal and will easily become a staple in your home. There are twenty-eight flavors from regular to Blackened Louisiana Bacon to BBQ flavored. To kick it up a notch, I’m using the Firecracker Chili flavor. All of the bacon is supremely delicious.

Bacon Freak Bacon makes cooking extremely easy. In fact, all you do is cook the bacon in a pan then add it to any meal or dish. I love that the bacon is seasoned – which ultimately makes this meal a kicked up version of ordinary strata.

What are good toppings?
