What You’ll Need

Making these takes just 25 minutes including preparation and cooking time, it’s always best to be prepared!

It’s time to get down to your local supermarket and stock up with the following ingredients so you can make them whenever you’re ready.

You’ll need the following items and ingredients to make twelve delicious muffins:

  • A wire rack
  • Non-stick cooking spray or Keto-friendly cooking oil (to make sure that your egg cups slide out easily)
  • 90g / 3.2 oz of sweet potato, shredded
  • 65g / 2.3 oz of cheddar cheese (grated)
  • Six strips of bacon, crumbled
  • Ten large eggs
  • 20ml of semi-skimmed milk
  • One teaspoon of salt
  • Three grinds of freshly ground black pepper
  • A muffin tray (at least ten holders)

How to Make Them

  • First, pre-heat your oven to 220 C / 430 F (adjust accordingly if you have fan or fan-assist)
  • Then, take a standard size muffin tray (with room for at least 10 muffins) and spray lightly with your cooking spray
  • Next, it’s time to divide up your sweet potato, bacon and cheese ingredients equally into the bottom of each muffin holder
  • Crack your eggs into a generously sized mixing bowl
  • Add the semi-skimmed milk
  • Add the salt and grind in the pepper
  • Whisk the mixture until everything is blended well.
  • Next, you pour equal amounts of the mixture into each muffin holder, on top of the ingredients that you’ve already placed so that each holder is approximately ½ full. If you have any mixture leftover just top up each muffin holder but be careful not to go over the ¾ full mark.
  • Now it’s time to bake!
  • Place your muffins on a tray in the middle of the oven.
  • Allow your muffins to bake until they are lightly brown around the edges. This will take approximately 12 to 14 minutes, depending on your oven speed.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool down on a wire rack (this should take two or three minutes).
  • Then, carefully run a butter knife lightly around each muffin holder. This should loosen up your muffins so you can remove them easily.
  • Serve your muffins warm or enjoy them cool, it’s up to you!

Simply store them in the fridge or freeze for use at a later date.

Always allow them to cool right down before storing and place in an airtight container before transferring to your fridge or freezer.

  • Add a little Keto-friendly tomato salsa (make your own!) and some freshly sliced green, yellow and red peppers for a Mexican twist
  • Combine the mixture with fresh spinach for extra Popeye strength!
  • Add a little shredded smoked salmon (instead of the bacon) and some finely chopped chives for a really tasty treat and serve with a dollop of sour cream
  • Just sprinkle some cayenne pepper into the mixture if you prefer something hot or for really hot, try chili powder, or even fresh chili (make sure to remove the seeds). This makes a real zingy flavor but beware your mouth might tingle!
