Tips and Variations
- Storage - Store in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Store in the freezer, in a sealed container, for up to a month. Do not leave these out overnight as they contain dairy and can easily spoil.
- Reheating - Reheat in the microwave or oven.
- Add other ingredients - You don’t have to use the fillers I used in this keto egg muffins recipe. Want mushrooms and green onion instead? How about bacon and mozzarella cheese? What about egg muffins with sausage? Go for it! As long as you keep the base recipe the same, you’re good to go on the fillers you want to add as long as they’re keto-friendly.
- Make them mini - If you want to use a mini muffin pan instead, you definitely can! This is a great option when it comes to serving these to kids.
- Add cheese - The best way to add even more flavor to these egg muffins is by adding cheese. I like to add some to the egg mixture before cooking and then more to the top after pouring the mixture in the tins.
- Add more spices - Another great way to add flavor is adding more spices! You can go for the garlic powder, some fresh garlic, cayenne, paprika, etc.
Common Questions About Keto Egg Muffins
How Do You Keep Egg Muffins From Getting Soggy?
The ingredients you use have a lot of water. Making sure your cream is properly whipped with your mixture helps water to cook out of the muffins faster. If you are still having trouble, you can saute your onions prior to mixing to help remove even more water. It’s also important to not store them when they’re still hot. If you put them in a sealed container, condensation will build up and cause your egg muffins to get soggy. Nobody wants a soggy breakfast!
Why Do My Egg Muffins Deflate?
The fluffiness of the muffins comes from the eggs and the cream. Keeping the eggs fluffy and light comes from the premix. Make sure everything is very well beaten and the cream really starts to thicken up! Also, if you skip the cream altogether, your eggs will definitely deflate. The dairy adds some of the fluffiness and sturdiness of the recipe. Since these don’t have a crust, they have to be beaten more than a quiche because they need that extra support. The air helps add the support.
