We like to call it our “kitchen sink” meal because you just clear out your fridge of what ever ingredients you have on hand and whisk them with some eggs and bake them in muffins/cupcake tins. After a few minutes in the oven, these keto egg muffins fluff up so beautifully. There’s portion control too because each egg muffin cup is an individual serving. We also love adding extra cheese like feta cheese, goat cheese, gouda, swiss, cheddar. The possibilities are endless. What ever you decide to add, make sure to add some topping options because the toppings make these egg muffins over the top! Salsa, avocado, guacamole and chopped jalapeños are just a few options that make these muffins the best part of breakfast and brunch.
