So this week will be a challenge for me since we are heading out of town for five days and will be basically eating out for every meal while we are gone. Hoping that my log sheet will be a reminder of what I need to be doing!
So I'd like to share another recipe this week (I couldn't read Stephanie's mind and should have saved my chicken recipe for this week). And I'm sure some of you will read it and think, "wow, that's not healthy." Let me try and justify.....if I eat protein in the morning then I am usually full until lunch, never thinking about a snack all morning. That is why I'm sharing this recipe. It is something you can bake ahead of time put in the freezer or fridge to quickly heat in the microwave as you are headed out the door. It will fill you up and tide you over until lunch!
Quiche Muffins (makes 12)
16 oz cottage cheese
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup flour, feel free to substitute for flax meal or almond flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2 cups shredded cheese, any flavor will work
10 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled, could use sausage, ham or turkey bacon
1/4 cup onion
Process cottage cheese in a blender or food processor until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl. In a medium bowl, beat eggs. Add milk, flour, baking powder and salt to eggs and mix until smooth. Add egg mixture to cottage cheese and mix. Stir in shredded cheese, bacon and onion.
Pour into muffin tins and bake at 375 for 12-15 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Store in the fridge or freezer.
You could also add other veggies like peppers or tomatoes!
