    Oh love these for the kids lunchboxes! Can these be frozen?
  2. Lynn
    I would like to know if these can be frozen. I cook for one.
  3. Joni
    Lynn, I'll let you know, going to make a big batch now for brunch & will freeze one or two as an experiment to defrost on Wednesday!
  4. Emma
    Hi Joni, How did you get on with freezing these?
  5. Karen
    Roughly how many should I expect to get from these quantities please.
  6. CRK
    You should get about 6. I doubled it and got 12.
  7. Marian
    I've made my own such mini quiches. Just like a pie sized quiche, you can freeze these.
  8. Jodi
    Does anyone know how many days they last in the fridge?
  9. Geraldine
    I should be able to cook these in the microwave , my oven's not working? Normally I can cook a muffin in three minutes......
  10. Diane
    I am new to all this so my question is.... is the bacon in the egg muffins cooked before being added to the egg/cheese mixture?
  11. Barbara Simoes
    Yes, sausage or bacon would be cooked ahead of time. This would be perfect as I made the pizza finally last night, only I used sausage instead of pepperoni, and I have a bit left over. I can put that in the muffins...and, it's already cooked! Easy peasy!
  12. Ana
    I made them and they were very tasty, but collapsed like souffles. Why might that be?
  13. Linda

    8 June will this work it goes against everything I have been told about diabetes
    I am thinking of trying this the recipes look great and normal food nobody has asked for any money is it really free
  15. Samantha
    Yes, it's a free diet ?. My husband is a type 2 diabetic who has had incredible results since he cut out carbs... almost 3 stone weight loss and even better his blood sugars are finally controlled and he has reduced some of his medication. My husband started by reading 'The 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet' book and has found it easy to follow. If you're on Facebook, there are support groups for this diet which have been brilliant for him.

    Thank you Samantha will give you a progress report in a few days I am clearing out my cupboards at the moment and buying all fresh food
    Got that book and planning my food diary for the week be in touch glad it's free
  17. Samantha
    No problem. I checked with my husband and the FB group is actually called the 8 Week Blood Sugar Diet, it would definitely be worth looking into because it provides free ongoing support from people in the same position.

    Hi Michelle smart!

    Yes, you can! Good luck!

  23. Lisa
    Are these made in mini muffin pans or regular muffin pans?
  24. Stef
    Any problem with the high fat content and cholesterol?
  25. Elis
    I can see the 2g of carbs (amazing) but how many grams of protein and fat is there??
  26. Elis
    Also, how many kcal is ther per one? How many is 'one serving'??
  27. Daina
    Hi everyone, the best way i have found to get your grams and protein and fat found out is to enter the recipe into an app like fitness pal. It will calculate all of that based on the ingredients you put in the recipe and the quantities.
  28. Hi Elis!

    We don't recommend calorie counting so we do not state the calories.

    But you can calculate everything if you really want (per serving below). ?

    (27/2)*2 = 27 gram protein
    (71/2=)*(4/9) gram fat =16 gram fat
    2*4 + 27*4 + 16*9 kcal =260 kcal

    Can this recipe be made without the breakfast meats? I have high blood pressure and my doctor prefers that I avoid breakfast meats until it is under control. Thanks!

    Hi Sam!

    You can absolutely leave the meat out all together or replace with similar amount of cooked shrimp or smoked salmon. Good luck!

  31. Clare
    Mine all stuck inside the cases :(
    Should I have greased them?
  32. Louise
    Mmmm yummy made these this morn as having real problem with eating so many eggs at mo.I've never been an egg person so having to have so many as I'm on week one has got my stomach rolling yuck! But these are lovely & can definitely eat these first thing no problem. Think I'm going to try salmon in the next lot 😋

    What is red pesto?

  34. Karen

    What is red pesto?

    Red pesto is made of sun dried tomatoes
    Green pesto is made of basil
    Both have pine nuts, parmesan, oil and garlic

    Both very yummy and easy to stir through vegetables, diced/sliced meats and stired in with creme fraiche/cream etc - see the Pesto Chicken Casserolle recipe for example which is simply declicious!

  35. Jack
    Can these be cooked the night before and stored in the fridge ready for the next morning?
    Thanks
  36. Kathy
    What Facebook group?
  37. Jason
    Dumb question, but what is considered a serving? 1 muffin?
  38. Jenn
    I would like to know the serving size as well
  39. Mel
