LOW CARB Breakfast Muffins

Preheat oven to 350°
Makes about 16, depends on the muffin tins you use

  • 12 eggs
  • 1 lb breakfast sausage
  • 8 oz cheese (I use Cheddar)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.
  1. Brown the sausage, grate the cheese. Mix all together in a large bowl.
  2. Pour into greased, or Pam sprayed, muffin tins ( I haven't tried it, but maybe you could use the cupcake papers) bake at 350 for about 25-35 minutes.
  3. You can add other things that you might put into an omelet, if desired, but this is the basic recipe. I make the whole batch, then refrigerate them, (after cooling first), or freeze. I just pop one in the micro, when I need a quick breakfast, lunch, or whatever for about 15 seconds. You can eat them cold, but I prefer them warmed up.

Breakfast Muffins

  1. Take your muffin tins place two slices of bacon crosswise in the muffincup.
  2. Break an egg into the cup
  3. Add a bit of shredded cheddar (or your fav shredded cheese).
  4. Fold the bacon over the top of the egg and cheese
  5. Bake in oven at 350 - 375 F for about 20 - 30 mins.
  6. Sometimes I add some halved cherry tomatoes, maybe a bit of tabasco sauce (a drop or two) or a teaspoon of sour cream.
Breakfast Sausage Muffins
  • 1 16oz. pkg. Breakfast Sausage
  • 8 lg. Eggs, beaten w/2T. water added
  • Grated Cheddar Cheese
  • Flaxmeal
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a super-sized muffin tin, line the 6 spaces with the sausage, making sure to cover the bottom and sides.
  3. Plop some grated cheddar cheese in each sausage cup.
  4. Fill each muffin tin with the beaten egg and sprinkle some flaxmeal on top.
  5. Bake in the 350 degree oven for approx. 30-35 minutes. Let cool completely in the muffin tin.
  6. Through trial and error I found out that it's a really good idea to place a cookie sheet under the muffin tin while baking. The grease from the sausage tends to spill over the sides. The flaxmeal on top isn't neccessary. Add it for a little extra flavor, fiber and crunch.

Hey girl, look my computer is actually working today! love the muffin ideas and I haven't made any in a very long time. It's about time I revisited this idea. So thank you. However DO NOT use paper cupcake liners...the foil ones might work, the paper is a disaster in my experience... Yikes I tried to make these for me to carry to work and thought the liners would make them more portable... ha ha... they work just wonderfully without the liners, but if someone wants to use them, please don't use paper.
Just thought I'd pass that little bit of experience on.
Hugs, take care,
Vikki
