    The recipe for the veto breakfast muffins does not tell you to grease the muffin tins.

    So glad the directions have been modified, as the version I have omits a few steps. Overall, I was expecting to like this and I really....did not. After reheating, they were chewy and weird and just not good at all. I think I'll stick to the latte and coffee for breakfast.

    Just discovered do not use paper cupcake cases as they stick. Thankful I only used half the receipt as I have a small muffin tin. Try again after I have eaten what I can get out of the cases for this batch.

    Tried these, and was a little disappointed. Tasty when fresh, but chewy and has a weird texture when reheated in the microwave. I'll make them again just to have in the freezer for emergencies, but they're just OK

    Yes, fry the bacon first then cut it into small pieces

    When I first made these they were really great but when I reheated them in the microwave they were super salty. I was excited about the chorizo ‘cause I’ve never had it before and it smells good but I think it or the pesto contributed to the saltiness a lot. I would mix them both and add Italian sausage instead if you’re sensitive to saltiness. But I’m a student and don’t have time to make breakfast and this is super convenient. I have to make a lot though to meet my daily protein.

    Made this recipe this morning. Excellent taste. I increased the cook time to about 25 minutes for a firmer texture ;)

    Using a silicone muffin pan makes a lot of difference. Mine didn't stick at all. I've made all kinds of egg muffins before, and no matter what kind of non-stick method I use they still stick to metal. Paper cups are just as bad. I made these with bacon, and thought they reheated just fine this morning.

    I really like these muffins and I want to have them again. I tried to add them to a personal meal plan as a lunch recipe, but the meal planner refuses to allow it. I can add it as a breakfast but not as a lunch. I've noticed this happening before but thought I must be doing something wrong. But no, the meal planner does not like meals that are classified as breakfasts being slotted in as a lunch. Can this be changed please - I don't see why the meal planner should restrict people in this odd way.

    Made my version of this recipe over the weekend to prepare for my work week. I swapped crumbled bacon in place of chorizo and opted out in favor of the pesto. Using a blend of cheddar cheeses , green onions and finely chopped green pepper. I use a hand blender to mix up the eggs and used a splash of heavy whipping cream to the mix. Filled muffin cups as directed and baked as directed. Egg muffins came out beautiful, fluffy and just the way I like them. Great for breakfast with a cup of Bulletproof coffee!
    * side note: no matter how much I buttered the muffin tin .. they still stick!

    How many should you eat for a meal?

    That depends on how hungry you are and how they fit in your personal carbohydrate allotment.

  16. Susan
    Texture is weird the first day. Can’t imagine reheating these. So many better ways to combine these ingredients.
  17. Michael Freeman
    cannot just butter the tin. needs spray. whoever wrote this recipe failed miserably with that part.
  18. Anita K
    We made these for a church brunch. They were very tasty but we had to scrape them out of the muffin tins even after we sprayed them with cooking spray very good. That doesn’t make very a very nice presentation.

    This recipe makes 6 servings. You can eat more than 1 serving if you are still hungry.

    I have made these twice and I have not had an issue with my muffins sticking to the pan, I use a NON-STICK muffin pan and I still rub my pan down with avocado oil and they bounce right out. The only modification I have made to the recipe was not adding the scallions or chorizo, I used bacon cheese and spinach they were a hit with my family.

    That should be fine! You can read more about fasting here - https://www.dietdoctor.com/intermittent-fasting

    I made them in fluted silicon muffin cups and it was a little hard to get them out. smooth cups or muffin tins would be better.

    I'm not surprised people who warmed them in the microwave thought the texture off. eggs reheated in the microwave are just gross! the texture of these was fine (to me) when reheated in the oven or toaster oven. do not wrap in foil when reheating or they will be a bit soggy.
