    Is it 2g of carbs per muffin or per serving? You have some conflicting answers here in the comments. If 1 serving is 2 muffins, and each muffin is 2g, then wouldn't it be 4g of carbs?

    All Diet Doctor recipes list the nutrition information per serving. In this case, there are 2 muffins per serving so the nutrition information covers 2 muffins. Two muffins are 2g net carbs for both of them.

    hands down one of the best savory egg muffins out there! I'm not a fan of cold eggs but these taste cold as delicious as they are when eaten hot! and you can pretty much make them with any deli meats (my fave is prosciutto) and any cheese (feta or mix of cheddar and pecorino romano is amazing), I love them, cant imagine week plan without them! and they hold very well in the fridge! YUM!

    I can’t wait to make these, quick question what is the best way to reheat next day?

    Made these this morning. Used chopped ham vs bacon and added some mushrooms I had leftover. No pesto so I added a bunch of Italian seasoning to the eggs, plus a little salt and pepper. Put the cheese on top per one of the suggestions. I cooked mine for a bit longer due to my oven being off. No other issues, they came out tasty. These are a good base to work from, you can basically load up any omelet ingredients in them. Used cupcake liners to make cleanup a breeze.

    Lauren, I put them in the microwave at 50% power for 1 minute. They were nice and warm but not too too hot.

    Tried these today and loved them. Very yummy with chopped linked sausage and Mexican blend cheese. Very easy to make and better warmed up. Thanks

    I guess not all pesto is made equal. I added 2 tablespoons and it's all you can taste.
    2 teaspoons would have been far more appropriate in my case
