Easy Egg Muffins

This morning I tried something new. Egg muffins!

1) I mixed two eggs, a bit of sour cream, and some sea salt in a bowl. Poured 1/2 in the bottom of a buttered cupcake tin.

Added in some chopped veggies, bacon bits, and cheese. Then topped with the rest of the egg mixture.

2) Popped in the oven and baked for 15 minutes at 350.

The finished product! I ate all three. 🙂  I was able to pop them out and eat them by hand. Plate and fork were not necessary, so this would be a very convenient food to eat on the go. It wasn’t crumbly at all. Very tasty and easy!

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~

Low Carb Pizza

Pizza is my favorite food. I used to work in pizza places, then managed some, then even co-owned two. I LOVE pizza! All kinds. My favorite around here is Three Brothers. We (used to) get Papa Johns a lot, as they’re nearby. Dan’s favorite (but my least) is Dominoes. I also like Ledo’s. Thick, thin, crispy, chewy… it’s all good!

Now that we are eating low carb… the one thing I miss most is pizza. I don’t really miss bread or pasta. But I do miss pizza! I’ve tried several online crust recipes and they were awful. I tried one on Linda’s site and so far it’s the best.

I woke up this morning craving pizza for some reason, so I made some and remembered to take photos.  It’s a pretty easy recipe.

1) Crust

In a bowl, mix an egg and a handful of cheese and a bit of garlic powder. We always have cheese in the house- I’ve used mexican 4 cheese, cheddar, and mozarella. Use whatever is your favorite.

Spread it out on a stone if you have one, or a very well greased cookie sheet. I’ve tried well greased foil and it was awful. It sticks and the whole point is a real crust. It doesn’t take like real crust if half of it is stuck to the foil.

This is the egg/cheese mixture before baking. It looks like mac and cheese, but it’s not. 😉

Bake at 450 for 5 minutes, then turn down the heat and bake at 400 for 5 more minutes.

2) Top the cooked crust with your favorite toppings.

Pizza sauce is the only real carb source here. Mine has 6 carbs per serving and I only used about 1/2 a serving.

I added a handful of cheese, and 4 peperoni. I would have also added veggies, but I didn’t feel like cutting them up.

Put back in the center of the oven on Hi Broil for 5 minutes.

Here is my finished product:

Doesn’t it look scrumptious?!

It has a bread-like crust consistency where you can pick it up and eat it by the slice in your hand. And it takes like pizza, not like egg. It’s crazy to me that eggs and cheese can taste like pizza crust, but it does!

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~

Low Carb Cookies

I wanted to make something off of Linda’s low carb site, so I found a recipe that I already had the ingredients in the kitchen. I changed her recipe a little, here’s what I did:

1) Put these in a bowl in the microwave for 20 secs to melt:
2 teaspoons peanut butter (2 carbs)
2 teaspoons butter

2) Mixed in:
1 egg white
2 scoops chocolate whey protein powder (6 carbs)
8 tsp equal
3 tsp water

3) Dropped on wax paper and microwaved at 20 second intervals
It took me a total of 70 seconds.

Here is what they looked like coming out of the microwave:

It made 8 cookies, for a total of 1 carb each (total, not net).  I’m not sure why her recipe only makes 4 cookies. Mine were a pretty good size.

This was incredibly easy. It only took me a matter of minutes. I ate one right away and it was surprisingly good! My husband LOVES these!

Enjoy! And be blessed! ~
