Low Carb Breakfast Egg Muffins
(To go 12 muffin full throttle, just double the batch)
1 bell pepper (your favourite colour)
3 spring onions
4 little cherry tomatoes/one normal tomato
1 tsp salt
12 slot muffin tin
Optional - these all go great. Add whatever you fancy!
2 slices cheese; around 50g (eg. cheddar)
Handful spinach/green leaves
2-3 splashes of hot sauce or curry powder
2 tsp of sambal oelek
Baking paper or muffin cups
Preheat the oven to 200°C/ 390°F.
Wash and dice the pepper, onions and tomatoes and put them in a large mixing bowl.
Add the eggs and salt and mix well. Pro tip - crack the eggs separately before adding. That way if you get a dodgy one, it won’t ruin the whole meal.
Optionally add some hot sauce, curry powder...whatever you like. Hot sauce is great!
Grease the muffin tin with oil and kitchen paper/baking brush and pour the egg mixture evenly into the muffin slots. (If you think they might still stick to the pan use some muffin cups or cut out some baking paper and to use as cups - definitely saves time on doing the washing up ;)
If you’re so inclined then layering some cheese over the top of each muffin before they go into the oven is a delicious addition! You can also mix in the cheese to the batter.
Pop the tray into the oven for 15-18 minutes or until the tops are firm to the touch.
When we first came across these Low Carb Egg Breakfast Muffins it suckered us in instantly, but also looked a little fiddly and time consuming. After a few (a lot!) of trial and error efforts we drastically cut down the prep and cooking time and are happy to say we have a really easy but really tasty recipe to share with you.
The end result is a crazy high-powered egg hybrid thing that tastes like an omelette, looks like a muffin and is packed full of protein and delicious veggie nutrients. You can eat them hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner or as a post-workout snack (my favourite). I love to layer a good bit of cheddar cheese over the top, but each to their own of course!
You can also freeze them!
