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!
