For these low carb breakfast bites you’ll need a bowl that’s big enough to mix all of your ingredients in and a mini muffin pan like this one.

Add into your bowl 3 large whole eggs, 2 large egg whites, 4 tablespoons of parmesan cheese, 1/4 cup of a Mexican blend cheese, 1/2 cup of cottage cheese, and a couple squirts of some optional chili sauce to give them some heat.

Take out and coat your mini muffin pan with some non-sticking cooking spray and then evenly distribute your mix into your muffin spots. You should fill them almost all the way to the top.

Sprinkle over the top of them 1 tablespoon of bacon bits and anything else you want.

Put your mini muffin pan into the oven and bake them on 350F/176C for around 20 minutes or until they fully rise.

Remove them from the oven once they look done and top them with some ketchup or chili sauce.

      Hi Jordy! 4-5 days would be the max for me! Hope this helps

    Derek, I’m gonna start calling you “da Muffin Man”! Some good ideas in here. I never thought about putting cottage cheese into them. Kind of an omelette in a muffin shape!
