Bariatric Breakfast Muffins
  • Vegetable cooking spray
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup evaporated or whole milk (fat free milk wont puff as high)
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper, from a jar, cut into fine dice - about ½ cup
  • One handful of fresh spinach leaves, rolled up and cut crossways into fine shreds
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat parsley OR ½ teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup regular or smoked provolone
  • 4 ounces cooked and finely crumbled Italian sausage or chopped ham (meat is optional)
  • ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees - spray a twelve cup muffin tin with vegetable cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs and milk until smooth; add the red pepper, spinach, seasoning, salt and pepper. Stir in half the provolone, and if using, ham.
  3. Using an ice cream scoop or ¼ cup measure, scoop the mixture into the muffin tin. Fill 8 to 10 of the cups to about ¼ from the top, then top with a little of the remaining provolone.
  4. Bake until the egg is set, the tops are puffed above pan and cheese has turned golden, 12 to 15 minutes.
  5. Cool for 2 minutes. Generously top with the Parmesan cheese. Run a butter knife around the outside of each muffin and gently remove from the tin with a large spoon.

      Ladies, we do NOT calculate the nutrition info for you as there is too much variety in this recipe based on what you add, how many muffins you make. Learn to calculate your own stats as its foolproof. There are too many people blogger types who put false numbers on recipes in order to be popular!

    IMHO, it is OUR own responsibility to look up and track our own stats. Use my fitness pal, you can type in the Url, address & it fetches & figures stats for you. You can also scan in ingredients of products you want to use, and it adds the food/drinks into you’re journal. Easy peasy! Just my opinion. 😉

    It’s true about Fitness Pal, very easy to use….AND true about variables. Like Egg Beaters instead of the regular eggs. I used soy milk and it was great!

      Hi Audrey, you can definitely freeze them individually. I would pop them in the microwave on a piece of paper toweling for 10 second bursts til warm.

    Not being mean, but I’ve been looking for a good breakfast muffin receipe but without all the nutritional information up front to see if it’s within my daily ‘price range’. It makes me look at it for two seconds and then pass it over. Why not include basic nutrional info?
