Low-Carb Spinach Artichoke Bacon Cups

Two American classics rolled into one today! These crispy bacon cups are filled with a low-carb creamy spinach and artichoke dip and are seriously good.

I love to serve these bacon cups as an appetiser or to take on a picnic. I took them to a BBQ i was invited to last week and, they went down a storm but they’re also great for a quick, on the go keto snack.

They store well in the fridge for up to 3 days and can also be frozen and reheated in the oven. Enjoy, guys.
