What can I cook for breakfast?  Do you ever ask yourself this question? I do…     Today I thought I’d help out by sharing my Easy Low Carb Egg Muffin Recipe.  

In fact, you can make this breakfast casserole muffin the night before if you like.  Just cook and store in an air-tight baggy or bowl in the frig.  I do it all the time.  Even better, I freeze them individually and have them on hand for times I need a quick healthy breakfast on the go.

Having prepared breakfasts ideas made in advance is a great time saver

This recipe is low carb, gluten free and keto friendly.  Trying to lose weight?  Here’s ya a great hot breakfast recipe.

A Secrete You Should Know… The best $7.99 I have ever spent!

Before we begin, I’ve got to tell you!  I love making meals in advance and putting them into the freezer to have on hand.  Sadly, my muffins were always a mess.

You know the “paper” muffin pan liners, I had used them for years.  They baked really well, came out to the muffin pan well, and even went into the freezer easily. But when you took them from the freezer and put them into the microwave to heat…

The paper liner would STICK to the muffin and you had to peel if off in tiny little pieces.  Not sure honestly how many papers pieces I have eaten over the years.  Finally getting tired of hearing the complaints about the tiny paper pieces,  I went on a mission to figure something out!

That’s when I came across these reusable silicone baking cups!  The best darn $7.99 I have ever spent.  In fact, after I tried them one time – I ordered another set.  I now own 24 of these wonderful backing cups!

They are so simple to use.  Just place them into the muffin pan, fill and bake. No greasing or lining needed!  It has been a great time saver for me.  And the family is happy too.

When the muffins come out of the oven, let them cool and simply dump onto the platter!  Wa-la simple!!!

Then clean them up with soap and water as with any other baking dish.  I LOVE THEM!!!

Now its time to scoop into your silicone baking cups.  When I fill my baking cups, I find that using an ice cream scoop works really well.  I have one like pretty much like this one and filling one scoop fills my baking cups to a good level.

Once you have your baking cups filled, place in the oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.

When my timer goes off, I check them to make sure they are done in the middle.  Normally 45 minutes is perfect in my oven.

Some have ask me why I use pink salt and I thought I’d take a brief minute to explain why…

What’s so Special About Pink Himalayan Salt?

Pink Himalayan Salt is better for your health.  If you are trying to eat healthier, lose weight, feel better, or have more energy, it is just the better choice for you.

It is normally mined by hand using traditional methods so therefore there is no pollution or waste byproducts.

It contains 84 minerals and trace elements including iron, calcium, magnesium, copper and zinc that your body needs to be healthy.  So it really does more than just make food taste better.

White refined salt is very heavily processed and its minerals have been eliminated as a result.

If you’d like to read more about pink Himalayan salt and its benefits, take a look at about this article The Benefits of Pink Himalayan Salt that Makes It Superior to Table Salt.

Other Health Benefits we Experience from Pink Himalayan Salt

Himalayan salt has many other benefits as well. The list just continues to grow as I do more research on it.  Here are just a few:

  • Supports thyroid and adrenal function
  • Acts as a strong Antihistamine
  • Supports hormone balance
  • Helps regulate blood sugar levels
  • Since hormones are balanced, sleep is improved
  • Helps to reduce muscle cramps
  • Detoxes the body by balancing pH
  • Trace mineral found in pink salt help to improve hydration
  • Supports weight loss by balancing hormones and improving energy

So with all this said. I’m hoping that you see the significance of why I so highly recommend using Pink Himalayan Salt in place of regular table salt.   It’s the only salt I use for everything.

I realize I’m way off subject of my Low Carb Egg Muffin Recipe but when you are passionate about something, I think we should tell the people who matter. And you matter to me.
