This is our favourite thing to make for Sunday breakfast because it’s quick and easy to throw together, yet tastes so good – way better than those fast food breakfast muffins that are loaded with carbs. The basic recipe for the muffin or bun is the standard One Minute Muffin recipe that’s all over the internet. There are several variations, some call for a blend of almond and flax meal, or even coconut flour. I sometimes mix it up depending what I have on hand, but I find the best texture comes from using only almond meal.
For the Muffin –
1 large egg
1 tsp olive oil, butter or other fat
dash of salt
half a teaspoon baking powder
4 Tablespoons almond flour / meal
For the Filling –
2 large eggs
salt and pepper
bacon bits or anything else you like, such as cooked breakfast sausage
First, make the Muffin – mix the egg and oil in a small bowl. Add the dry ingredients and mix well. Microwave for 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave. Set aside.
Now make the Filling – in another small bowl whisk the eggs and add a bit of salt and pepper. Microwave about one minute. If there is a little liquid left, that’s fine as it’s going back in to cook more, but if there’s a lot, you might want to cook another 20-30 seconds. Add the remaining ingredients and put back in the microwave for 30 seconds. Cover with a small plate, if desired, to melt the cheese if it hasn’t already melted.
Loosen the muffin from the bowl with a butter knife, cut it in half to make a top and bottom bun and butter them, if desired. Loosen the filling and put it on half the muffin and top with the other half. Enjoy!
