  • Serves 6
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook/Bake Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup riced broccoli
  • 3/4 cup shredded white cheddar (sub in your favorite cheese if preferred)
  • 1/3 cup cooked bacon, plus additional for sprinkling
  • 9 large eggs
  • Splash of almond milk or water
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt & pepper
  • Avocado (optional)
  • Oil for spraying tin

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.

Directions

  • For the riced broccoli: wash and dry broccoli (include stalks too by peeling the outside so they are more tender), cut into small pieces, and load them into a food processor. Then pulse the processor until you have small bits of broccoli.
  • To a bowl, add the riced broccoli, cheddar, and bacon bits. Mix gently to combine. Spray a muffin tin liberally with your favorite oil spray. Then split the mixture evenly and spoon into the muffin tin.
  • Crack your eggs into a bowl and add the garlic powder, salt, pepper, and a splash of almond milk or water. Whisk until light and fluffy.
  • Then pour the mixture evenly into the muffin tin, over the top of your other ingredients. Sprinkle additional bacon bits on top, if desired.
  • Bake at 350° for 20-22 minutes until eggs are puffed and cooked through. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving. The puffed eggs will relax back down as they cool. Add avocado slices for garnish if desired.
