Ditch the tortillas and bake up these gluten-free keto breakfast tacos!
Who needs a taco shell when you can have bacon holding together all your keto breakfast favorites? Use it to weave together a crunchy taco shape that you can fill up with eggs, avocado, pico de gallo, and more!
How To Make A Bacon Taco Shell
The key to making a durable tortilla replacement is to look for bacon with a moderate amount of fat. Bacon that is too lean (like turkey bacon) will result in a thinner “tortilla” that might crack when folded. It’s best to opt for thick-cut pork strips to make it sturdy enough to hold all the fillings.

When weaving the bacon, you’ll want to keep the slices as close together as possible. Start by laying down four slices of bacon side-by-side. Fold up the bottom half of every other strip. Lay one strip of bacon perpendicular to those strips, flush up against the back of the folds. Unfold the bacon strips back down over the perpendicular strip of bacon. Repeat with the remaining 3 strips of bacon, alternating the strips that are flipped to create a weave pattern. Keep your weave snug, since the bacon tends to shrink and shift during the baking process.
To shape the taco shells after the baking process, you’ll need to use a makeshift cooling rack. We balance a butter knife between two cans and fold the bacon weave over the knife. Let it cool for about five minutes, so that it can crisp into place.
Customize It Your Way
You can also add guacamole instead of avocado slices, or sub in fresh salsa in place of the pico. Chopped cilantro, sautéed mushrooms, and fresh spinach also make great additions.
Helpful Tips To Get Started:
- Enjoy these breakfast tacos right away. For the best flavor and texture, you’ll want to serve them as soon as they’re done.
- Make more for larger crowds. These tacos are on the small side (think street tacos), so double up the recipe for hungry appetites.
- Use a baking sheet with raised edges. This will catch the bacon grease and prevent it from spilling over.
- Use the bacon shells for lunch or dinner. Is breakfast time over? Stuff them with chicken or steak.
