About this Recipe

If you’re like me, shake up your morning routine with these quick & easy Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies. They are vegetarian, low-carb, gluten-free, and can be made ahead of time. It’s the perfect breakfast when you’re in a hurry. Leeet’s do this!
Ingredients for Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies
For this recipe, you will need 11 simple ingredients: eggs, milk, mushrooms, bell pepper, olives, cherry tomatoes, spring onions, basil leaves, Feta cheese, and salt & pepper. Of course, if you like to switch it up, feel free to add your favourite veggies. These Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies are not only packed with veggies but the veggie combinations are endless. That’s why they are a great way to use up leftover veggies since you can add in almost anything you’d like. I added crumbled Feta cheese but feel free to use your favourite cheese instead (e.g., grated cheddar, parmesan, or mozzarella). Also, I highly recommend NOT to omit the milk as it gives the breakfast muffins a more fluffy texture.
How to make Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies
Easy-Peasy. Basically, all you need to do to make these Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies is (1) crack your eggs in a bowl, (2) whisk them together with the milk, (3) stir in the veggies and Feta Cheese, (4) season with salt & pepper, (5) spoon the mixture into your muffin pan, and (6) bake them for about 20 minutes. Do NOT forget to spray-oil your muffin pan, and make sure that every inch (including the sides!) is coated or otherwise the muffins will stick to the pan.
How to serve Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies
These Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies are great for breakfast BUT you could also serve them for lunch or dinner (or as a quick snack on the go!). I usually pair mine with toast (or English muffins), avocado, and cherry tomatoes on the side. By the way, you can eat these fluffy savoury muffins hot OR cold. They can be refrigerated, in an airtight container, for up to 2 days. Just make sure to let them cool completely before storing them. To reheat your breakfast muffins, simply pop them into the microwave for about 15-30 seconds (use the oven or a pan if you don’t have one!). Please keep in mind that microwave times can vary so you may need to adjust the time. Enjoy your Low-Carb Egg Muffins with Veggies!
