Omelette Muffins

I saw this great low carb recipe on Diet Doctor while I was searching breakfast recipes. So there is a story behind the low carb research, but that will be another post at another time. Anywhoodle, after reviewing the recipe, which I changed up a lot, but I still used items that were on the low carb menu.  I will say as a disclaimer, I am not a doctor or nutritionist, so I can only offer suggestions based on what I am trying. I did not calculate the serving sizes or calories, I just can speak for what I did for my breakfast meal prep. The below recipe made 12 muffins and I put two for each morning. I used Texas style biscuits as the base, but I cut each biscuit into three pieces. The biscuits which are 16g of carbs per serving (1 serving is 1 biscuit), I used 4 biscuits. That calculates to approximately 5g of carbs per muffin. Feel free to use what you would like from the recipe and I would love to read comments on possible substitutions for certain ingredients. If you would like to find out how these were made continue reading..

I wish I had more pictures of me prepping, but I didn't think about it, until after I tasted the finished product. However,  it was super easy and cooked within 20 -25 mins. 

What you will need
  • 6 eggs 
  • 2 oz ground sausage (I used 1oz HEB maple ground sausage and 1oz HEB italian ground sausage)
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cup onions
  • 1 cup green peppers
  • 4 HEB Texas Style Buttermilk Biscuits 
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • Pam spray 
  • Muffin Pan
  • 1/4 cup of milk (I used SO Delicious Dairy Free Unsweetened Coconut Milk) optional
P.S. I would definitely try it with bacon, if you are like me and LOVE bacon

Preparation

First I preheated oven at 400 degrees and sprayed the muffin pans with Pam, while I cooked the sausage. After cooking the sausage, I opened biscuits and cut each biscuit into three pieces and placed each piece into the muffin pan. I did use garlic powder, onion powder, and seasoned salt to flavor my eggs. I mixed milk into the eggs to make the eggs fluffier, plus it stretches the mix. 
For the first six muffins, I placed some spinach, peppers and onions into each muffin, then I placed in the sausage, next I poured the egg mixture and topped with cheese. These are why these are more yellow, because the cheese is on top.
For the second set, I placed the cheese on top of the biscuit, then I put in the spinach, peppers, onions, and sausages. Lastly, I poured in the egg mixture on top of each.
I placed the both sets in the oven for 20 mins or until golden. 

These were really tasty. Enjoy!

These are the second batch that had the cheese near the bottom and more sausage than the first batch.
These are more yellow because I placed the cheese on top and less sausage than the second batch.
Although the picture is pretty blurry, you can see each muffin is a pretty hefty size
And I prepped the finished product for my breakfast for six days.
