First, you will need eggs, which have several health benefits. They have been shown to change harmful cholesterol to the beneficial kind in your body, promote healthy bones, and improve vision. They are also a warehouse of many nutrients, vitamins, and protein.
We recommend that you buy pasture-raised eggs as these tend to contain more healthy fats and fewer chemicals than conventional eggs.
You will also need bacon. You can fry it in a pan or bake it in the oven.
Also, bacon contains a large amount of essential fatty acids and proteins, which are very useful for athletes and pregnant women alike.
For your sauce, you should use homemade mayo. When you prepare mayonnaise yourself, you can be sure that it doesn’t contain any hidden sugars and artificial additives.
A few slices of Cheddar cheese will complete our bites. Cheddar contains a significant amount of vitamins and a low content of carbohydrates. Besides, it positively influences the function of the nervous system and improves attention.
To cook this dish, you need to cool hard-boiled eggs and cut them in half. Top each egg half with homemade mayo, a slice of bacon and cheese and microwave for 30 seconds, to melt the cheese.
Close mini sandwiches with the other egg halves, secure with toothpicks and enjoy!

It’s always a good idea to have hard-boiled eggs on hand. You can make these by adding eggs to boiling water and cooking for about 10 minutes. You can also bake them in the oven with the shell on to hard boil them! Some stores even sell hard-boiled eggs.
Slice the hard-boiled egg in half.
Then stuff with mayo, bacon and cheese.
Heat the ‘sandwich’ slightly until the cheese melts.
Next, top with the other half of the egg, and stick with a toothpick so it stays in place!
