Ham & Cheese Low Carb Breakfast Muffins

Paula Todora


If you beat the eggs well, the muffins will be light and airy. Full of cheeses, ham, and spinach, they are the perfect start to a perfect day. Make ahead and heat 2 minutes the microwave in the mornings for a great, warm, low-carb breakfast. These are our favorites.

These low carb ham and cheese muffins may not be the prettiest, but man are they flavorful. The combination of all the cheeses is fabulous. They're almost like a mini crustless quiche. Savoriness of the Swiss cheese and ham is the perfect complement to the spinach. The best part is these heat up wonderfully. No excuses to not grab a healthy breakfast. An easy make-ahead breakfast so they're a perfect meal prep recipe. The Test Kitchen
