SOUTH BEACH FRIENDLY EGG MUFFINS

My husband and I are trying to be healthier and lose some weight so we are doing the South Beach diet.  It has worked for us before and we both love it.  I actually don't like eggs but my husband loves them.  This recipe for egg muffins is one of his favorites.  They are incredibly easy to make and even easier to take to work every day.  


SOUTH BEACH FRIENDLY EGG MUFFINS
{Serving size: One dozen}

Ingredients:
6 large eggs
2 bell peppers (diced)
3-4 slices of turkey (chopped)
8 slices of salami (chopped)
1 cup of grated cheddar cheese
garlic salt, pepper & seasoning to taste

Honestly, you could pretty much add anything you enjoy in your eggs...the possibilities are endless!!!








I cheated and used pre-shredded Kraft cheese because I was rushed for time and this cheese just expired yesterday so I need to get rid of it.



Directions:
1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2.  Whisk all ingredients in a mixing bowl (I used my mixer because I was lazy and because I try to use it any excuse I get).





3. Place cupcake liners in your muffin tin and coat with non stick spray.  I have tried to go without the cupcake liners but the egg stuck to my muffin tins and it took forever to get it out.  Also, I use these cupcake liners that are cardboard as opposed to the thin cupcake liners because the thin ones stick to the muffins and you will be eating paper along with your muffins! 

I use an ice cream scoop to fill the cupcake liners a little over halfway with the egg mixture.





4.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.  I usually watch for the tops of the muffins to start browning a little.


I let them cool and then pack them in sandwich bags for the week.  I stick one bag in the fridge for the next day and the rest in the freezer.


I usually make these on a Sunday so that I can have them ready for the week.  My husband likes to eat three each morning so they only last him 4 days.  This is a great way to have breakfast ready for him every day, it's so full of protein and it is fully South Beach approved for Phase 1 as well. 

I'd love to hear how your egg muffins turn out and I'd love to hear if you have any other South Beach approved recipes.  Have a great week everyone!
