I adapted this this from recipe by BuzzFeed Food to be lower in carbs, you can make it your own by adding any ingredient you’d add to an omelet! Bacon, sausage, onion, seafood, etc! Just be sure to adjust your net carbs whenever you do.  It’s all good and so simple to throw in the microwave as you run out the door!  They’ll stay a multitude of days in the fridge so you can cook once and eat all week!

Of course you can make these easy egg muffin cups in a regular muffin or cupcake pan. Just be sure to spray well with a non-stick so they come out whole. I tend to like using a silicone muffin pan so I don’t have to spray and they pop out clean every time! I even have some individual ones that are heart shaped that my grandkids love but I am looking at ordering these adorable flower silicone molds right now! Won’t they make cute muffins in a minute too?  I just have to have them!

  1. Looks delicious, and I’m sure the taste is scrumptious! I would add chorizo and a little cilantro; or some taco meat, then add taco toppings to serve. Thanks for the recipe! And you are absolutely correct on the flower molds!

So... what's YOUR take on this?
