Low-carb egg, and cheese veggie muffins perfect for on the go. You can make them ahead and reheat in the microwave a few seconds. A great change from the usual low-carb bacon and eggs!

Instructions Checklist

  • Cook and stir bacon in a skillet over medium-high heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Transfer bacon to a bowl, reserving bacon grease in the skillet.

  • Combine spinach, mushrooms, green bell pepper, onion, salt, and ground black pepper to taste in the skillet with bacon grease; cook and stir until softened, about 5 minutes. Transfer vegetable mixture to a bowl and place in the freezer to cool, about 5 minutes.

  • Whisk eggs and cream together in a bowl; stir in 1 cup Colby-Jack cheese, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. Add cooled vegetables and bacon to egg mixture and mix gently.

  • Scoop 1/4 cup egg mixture into each muffin cup; top each with remaining Colby-Jack cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until egg cups are set, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute any cooked meat or any cooked veggie. Make sure if you're low carbin' it, that they are low-carb ingredients though.

Tips

Cheddar cheese can be used in place of Colby-Jack, if desired.

Tips

I use silicone muffin cups, but the greased muffin tin is fine.

Since I lacked some ingredients I went with what I had, eggs, milk, bacon, cheddar. Still though, you can use anything and they came out splendidly! Delish! Read More

Delicious!!! Even my picky 9 year old Daughter said she loved them!!! Used 5 slices of pre cooked turkey bacon instead of 4 slices of thick cut regular bacon. And to replace the bacon grease to cook the veggies I used coconut oil spray and a few hard shakes of Smoked Paprika to help impart the bacon flavor. Used 1% milk instead of heavy cream. We estimate that these switches made these yummy egg muffins closer to about 100 calories each! Read More

Was cleaning out my refrigerator for hurricane Matthew, and I added more cream and ricotta cheese, and extra spinach and mushrooms, so they don't have to be thrown out. Plan to warm them on a cast iron pan on a fire later when power goes. These were great! Read More

I cooked the bacon first before cutting it. I garnished it with fresh basil and it added to the flavor. Read More

Absolutely scrumptious & great to grab on the go or to pack in your lunch! I utilize various veggies I've got in my fridge; and love adding sautéed asparagus, mushrooms, red pepper & Maui sweet onions to them. I also add shredded Parmesan cheese to the top! Highly recommend & super easy to make! Read More

I changed the cream to sour cream, used about 1/3 lb of sausage and baked 15 minutes. Perfect!! I also dropped my temp to 325. Served with salsa and sour cream for a little taste variation. Read More
