Author Notes

Fill a bunch of muffin cups with half a dozen beaten eggs and a handful of veggies, set to cook in the oven for 20 minutes, go take a shower and voilà! A delicious low-carb, gluten-free and protein-rich breakfast that you'll love biting into. No fuss, no hassle, and you can keep them in the fridge to have on hand for the rest of the week. They're great as an on-the-go breakfast option too. —Mylittlejarofspices

Grrreat idea--even if I weren't diabetic and always looking for things like this (balance of protein and vegetable carbs) it would be great. I just haven't figured out how to not have the baking powder foaming away when I pour the mixture into the cups. All those air bubbles disappear in the cooking and then I don't have enough egg mix in my muffin. Thanks for the recipe!
