    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.

    Thank you.

    You may want to add a bit more protein.
