FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Are these low carb or keto-friendly?

Yes they are! So if you are on any of these diets or have to stick to low carbs then these will work.

Can I add any other vegetables?

You can swap out the vegetables to your liking. Some other vegetables that will work are: mushrooms, onions, green bell pepper, etc.

What other cheese can I use?

If you are not a fan of cheddar cheese you can absolutely switch it up with Monterey Jack, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack, Mozzarella, Gruyere, Parmesan, etc. Use any of your favorite cheeses in this recipe.

Can I add some spices to these?

Yes, if you find them bland with just salt and pepper then you can maybe think about adding: basil, oregano, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, garlic powder and/or onion powder.

Can I use real bacon bits?

Yep! Do what works for you! I usually make a bunch of bacon on Sundays so that I have it for breakfast during the week and for BLT’s and salads. Just make sure that you use enough as called for in this recipe.

How do I store leftovers?

These can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator where they will keep for up to 3 days. They can also be frozen. Place cooled Breakfast Egg Muffins in a freezer container and they will keep for up to 3 months. To defrost, remove from the freezer and place in the refrigerator until thawed. To reheat you can do this in the microwave in 15 second intervals until heated through (this helps them not become soggy or rubbery.)
