EASY Pesto, Turkey, Roast Beef & Smoked Salmon Egg Muffins

I did a major food haul this last weekend. I wanted to make bacon egg muffins but I couldn’t find sugar-free bacon at the 3 healthy stores I went to. So, I gave up and found Applegate’s roast turkey & roast beef deli meat at Whole Foods. I don’t usually buy deli meat but Applegate’s is organic, humanely raised, hormone-free, etc etc and most importantly tastes and looks like real meat. Not like fake meat substance (think bologna).

Now I know ya’ll have seen a million egg muffin recipes before. It’s really easy to scramble up some eggs and chopped veggies, pour them into muffin tins and bake. I’m pretty frickin lazy and after making egg muffins that way once I was over it. I started to just plop whole eggs into the muffin tins and I actually like them a lot better this way! They taste like little bun-less Egg McMuffins. Add any type of protein you want and you’ve got yourself a great little snack.

I’ve done these Egg Muffs before but my girlfraaaan Nicole told me she puts sweet pot slices at the bottom of the muffs so I tried that too and I LAVA it!

I packed 3 for breakfast this morning and I was filled up. I put the rest into containers & now I have breakfast or a filling snack for the work week.

PESTO TURKEY, ROAST BEEF OR SMOKED SALMON EGG MUFFINS

EASY Pesto Egg Muffins  (Turkey, Roast Beef, Smoked Salmon) - Paleo Catwon

 

INGREDIENTS:

  • cooking oil (I used a coconut oil spray from Trader Joe’s)
  • 1 egg per muffin tin (I made 18, so I used 18 eggs)
  • sugar-free turkey, roast beef and/or smoked salmon (I used all 3, separately)
  • 1 medium sweet pot
  • pesto (I found some dairy-free basil pesto at Berkeley Bowl)
  • black pep

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • coat muffin tins with coconut oil
  • slice sweet pots into coins
  • place one sweet pot coin into each muffin tin
  • line sides of tins with the protein of you choice
  • break a single egg into egg cup
  • sprinkle black pep to taste
  • drop a dollop of pesto on top of each cup
  • bake for 20 min

*Note: 20 minutes at 350 degrees gave me an awesome cooked egg with a 5-10% yolky-yolk! If you don’t want a yolky-yolk and you want that yolk cooked through allllllll the way, then give it a few more minutes. You can test it by sticking a toothpick or chopstick into the yolk and if it’s too goopey for you, leave them in longer & just watch them.

*Note #2: Turkey comes out moist. Roast beef comes out a tad dryer. The smoked salmon is salty enough – don’t add salt! BACON WORKS THE BEST. If you can get your grubby little hands on bacon, try that! :)
