LOW CARB BREAKFAST MUFFINS
These muffins are packed with protein so you can get through the morning without any carbs. This can lead to blood sugar spikes that can deplete you before lunch.
Choose the protein or cheese you prefer. The eggs are beaten up, but each muffin contains (more or less) one egg.
• 1 cup of pre-cooked turkey sausage crumbled
• 1 cup of diced red pepper
• 12 eggs
• Salt and pepper to taste
• 1 cup of low-fat cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 12-cup muffin pan with non-stick spray. Divide the turkey sausage crumbs between the 12 muffin tins. Top with the peppers.
Whisk the eggs in a large measuring cup. Add teaspoons of each salt and black pepper. Whisk again to mix.
Slowly pour the egg mixture over the sausage and peppers. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the dough.
Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until the eggs are cooked through. Cool muffins on a wire rack. Store in the refrigerator after cooling. Warm up in the toaster or microwave.
