    I make these and variations of these every week. Great fast meal when on the go. The egg has a better texture when cooked at 325 vs 350.

    I made these last night to have through the week as a test for when I start back to work. I used bacon instead chorizo.
    I reheated this morning and they were testy and pleasant enough, I will have them again and they will be a good speedy morning choice when I have myself to get ready and children to get ready for school. I don't believe I will ever use anything but bacon though.

    I used more cheese than in the recipe and they came out great. Plus, I had no problem getting them out of the muffin pan. I buttered the pan but not much. For next day enjoyment, I brought to room temperature and smeared philly cheese on them. GOOD!

    Just made these as per the recipe using a non-stick buttered muffin tray. Turned out really well. Very tasty.

    AWESOME! I made half the recipe for 6 egg-muffins with veggies (sauteed on grass-fed butter spinach, broccoli, and cabbage slaw that I shredded) and to the beaten eggs I added chipotle instead of pesto. They came out great, I love the taste and texture and will take one for lunch at school, now and then... as we start next week and I have to stay focused on my diet. I know that I will do this often. Thank you for such good recipes.

    I would flash freeze them on a sheet pan and once frozen pop them into a resealable bag. These would be good in the freezer for about 3 months.

    Hello, not a fan of bacon, chorizo, sausage...but want to try this.
    Would omitting the above meats still make it a keto meal?
    Thank you.

    You may want to add a bit more protein.

    Hi, how would you recommend serving this as part of a meal? I love the thought of having these as part of my breakfast but on their own they're not enough to keep me going. Very yummy though!

    The 6 serving recipe should yield 12 muffin at 2 carbs each.

    You could add in some avocado. This will increase the carbs, but may help keep you satiated.

    I make a batch of these every 2-3 weeks - they are gorgeous. A few comments - 1. find they keep for up to a week in an airtight container with a sheet of kitchen roll between layers, to absorb moisture 2. I use silicone muffin cases and getting them out is therefore a breeze. 3. I strongly recommend adding cheese AFTER having poured the egg mixture into the cases - if you put the cheese into the egg mix before filling cases, the cheese sinks to the bottom of the mix and so doesn't distribute evenly when pouring into cases. Hope that helps!

    Hello. I believe there is an error in the recipe. The ingredient list should say 5 oz. of cooked bacon or “chorizo,” not “salami.” Step 3 in the recipe says to add the “bacon or chorizo” to the bottom of the tin.

    Yes, you can eat these daily if you like.

    Great recipe. I used chicken sausage chorizo for half the cups and mushrooms and onion for the other half. Thank you.
  23. Mela
    My new favourite breakfast! Everyone loved them! I used fillet instead of bacon since it has less fat and didn’t put onion in.

    I always thought I would like these. Made them this morning for the first time, as I had a lot of eggs. Added mixed herbs, which went well, as I didn't have pesto. These are easy to make and very versatile.

    I agree with the versatility of this one. It keeps the recipe interesting over time and helps you to satisfy all the members of your household.
