Egg Muffins (Pinterest Win!)

Pinterest has been an addiction of mine since its early Beta stages.

I find it much easier to search Pinterest (and hey, its a lot more fun, too!) for recipes that fit my wants and needs. In an effort to try and help my early morning routine, I knew I needed to find something I could make quickly and grab as I was going out the door for my morning walk.

I don’t have many options (at least not that I have learned yet) since being switched to a lower carb way of living.

I landed on Egg Muffins. Extremely simple. Every pin I found had a different set of ingredients so I just improvised a little bit.

I also had 11 muffin liners.

Basically my recipe consisted of Oscar Meyer Turkey Bacon. I cooked half the package, let them cool, then crumbled them into smaller pieces. I didn’t have any regular bacon on hand. I’ll be honest – I buy what is on sale.

I beat 8 eggs, added 1/4c skim milk, salt, pepper, cheese flavored sprinkles, garlic and onion powers. You can add your own amounts to your taste. Omit garlic and onion if they aren’t your flavors. I know some people add hot sauce to theirs. Also, feel free to add full-fat milk, 2%, or even try non-dairy alternatives. I used cheese flavored sprinkles, you can certainly use real cheese. I just didn’t have any one hand at the time.

Divide between the muffins, sprinkle in some turkey bacon, and then I baked on 350 for 30 minutes.

Once they were cool I put them in a giant Tupperware container in the fridge.

In the morning I pop them in the micro for 10 seconds while our K-cup coffee machine spits its brew. Out the door we go.

One thing I learned, spray the liners before putting the egg mixture in!
