Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 cups broccoli chopped
  • ¼ cup onion diced
  • ¼ cup red bell pepper diced
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • ¾ cup Pepper Jack cheese shredded
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup cottage cheese
  • 3 slices turkey bacon chopped
  • Pinch salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • Cooking spray

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F.
  • In the meantime, heat the avocado oil in a medium pan. Cook the broccoli, onion, bell pepper, and turkey bacon until the veggies are slightly softened and aromatic, ~5 minutes. Set aside.
  • In a blender, add the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and pepper. Blend until smooth.
  • Coat 12 standard muffin cups with cooking spray. Divide the broccoli and bacon mixture evenly. Do not press down. Leaving the space allows for the egg mixture to fill.
  • Divide the egg mixture into the 12 cups over the broccoli and bacon mixture.
  • Sprinkle the cheese mixture evenly over each cup.
  • Cook 20-25 minutes until the eggs are set.
  • Cool for 2-3 minutes. To release, lightly run a knife along the edge of each bit.

Notes

Freeze in a sealed container and reheat in the microwave for breakfast on the go! Serve with broccoli coins.
