Breakfast : Let’s make it simple : Three-ingredient egg cups/muffins

You may have seen a previous post of mine titled ‘Take three ingredients’ here … well this simple breakfast recipe suggestion follows on from that …


Whether you call it an egg cup or egg muffin this keto/low carb breakfast is a simple single-portion breakfast by Sahil Makhija that you can make in minutes. Simply beat eggs, cheese, and ham and microwave in a buttered ramekin.


Ingredients
One Serving
1 tsp butter
2 large eggs
1¼ oz. smoked deli ham, chopped
¼ cup (1 oz.) cheddar cheese, grated
salt and ground black pepper, to taste
Instructions
1. If not using a microwave, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).
Steps 2 to 5 can be seen here


Tips
Feel free to substitute the cheddar cheese or ham for any other cheese or deli meat you have in your fridge.
Meal prep
i) If you make more than one serving, beating the eggs in a bowl is easier.
ii) You can bake these in a muffin tin and store them in the fridge for 7-8 days.


Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated 😊

“Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods money can buy – they are a natural source of many nutrients including high quality protein, vitamins and minerals. A medium egg contains less than 70 calories. Eggs are naturally rich in vitamin B2 (riboflavin), vitamin B12, vitamin D, selenium and iodine. They also contain vitamin A and a number of other B vitamins including folate, biotin, pantothenic acid and choline, and essential minerals and trace elements, including phosphorus.” Read more about eggs here

Eggs are incredibly nutritious, but I appreciate that in some countries, at present times they are becoming expensive. If your budget and any health issues, or allergies, allow for eggs to be included in your menu plans I hope you may be able to give this recipe suggestion a try.


You will find a variety of recipe ideas within this blog, and not all may be suitable for you. If you may have any food allergies, or underlying health issues these must always be taken into account. If you are a diabetic and not sure how certain foods may affect your blood sugars, test is best, i.e. use your meter. If you have any concerns about your health, it is always advisable to consult your doctor or health care team.

All the best Jan
