This low carb muffin is a delicious breakfast option. The texture is more like eggs than a muffin but still tasty. Italian sausage and cheese add tons of flavor. We loved that the recipe makes exactly 6 muffins. A great meal prep option. Make these on Sunday and you'll have breakfast prepared for the week. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
