The opposite day as I used to be holding again bursting right into a rousing rendition of a Duran Duran hit. I noticed this product within the frozen part: Dealer Joe’s Egg Frittata with Swiss Cheese and Cauliflower. I scanned the protein-packed ingredient record and ooooh cool it seemed like one thing that might work on my plan. I tossed a field in my cart. They had been 2.99 for a pack of two teacup saucer-sized frittatas. 12 grams of protein and simply 5 grams of carbs per frittata. They had been tremendous handy (you simply warmth within the microwave from frozen) and engaging. Good breakfast on-the-go or add a veggie or salad for lunch or dinner.
As I used to be consuming them I assumed I really want to attempt to recreate these… they’re tremendous much like the Egg Bites I make. I scribbled down the essential ingredient record earlier than I tossed the field out… eggs, onions, cauliflower, swiss cheese, chives and per week later I experimented and got here up with this copy cat, knock-off model. They had been fairly darn shut, tremendous yummy and will likely be on everlasting rotation at my home.
Shelly’s Cauliflower Cheese Egg Bites
1 (10 oz.) Frozen Package deal Riced Cauliflower (I used Birds Eye Steamfresh Cauliflower with Italian Cheese added*)
1 Yellow Onion, diced
5 Eggs, crushed
1/three cup Shredded Gruyere Cheese (Swiss will work too)
three Inexperienced Onions, diced (I did not have chives)
half of teaspoon Onion Powder
half of teaspoon Salt
a couple of twists of Black Pepper
Prepare dinner Riced Cauliflower per bag directions. Empty right into a mesh strainer. Put aside to permit to empty and funky. I used Italian Cheese seasoned riced cauliflower *In case you use plain I would add a Tablespoon or 2 of grated Parmesan Cheese. Saute yellow onion until golden. Put aside to chill barely.
Preheat oven to 350.
Combine all substances collectively. Spoon right into a evenly greased (Pam non-stick spray works nice for this) mini muffin tin.
Bake for 30 minutes at 350. Allow them to cool a couple of moments they draw back and pop proper out. Makes 24. Preserve in fridge for a number of days, they reheat nice within the microwave or toaster oven… or freeze.
