Freezer Meal Breakfast recipes
I'm at an age now where I need to watch what I eat to lead a healthier life. To do that I decided to cut my intake of carbs down. I am eating a lot healthier now.
As you probably know breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
Until recently I have never been a breakfast eater.
Getting into the habit of eating breakfast has been challenging.
I wanted something on hand that was a little more filling than cereal or yogurt that I could eat once in a while.
I decided to make these low carb breakfast muffins and freeze them. I figured if I had something on hand that was easy to prepare in the morning I would be more likely to eat every morning.

I made these breakfast muffins with turkey sausage but you could use any type of sausage or bacon that you like.
You could also add some fresh spinach. The bottom layer of the breakfast muffin is a layer of steamed cauliflower.
It's a great way to get an extra serving of vegetables during the day.
Breakfast Muffin Fillings
The world is your oyster when it comes to breakfast muffin fillings. You can use any type of breakfast protein you would normally eat like breakfast sausages, Canadian bacon, pork bacon, or turkey bacon.
Or you could go for all vegetable breakfast muffin fillings like spinach, peppers, onions, cauliflower, tomatoes or even cooked squash.
Mix and match your favorite vegetables and meats to come up with your own personal flavor of breakfast muffins you can stock the freezer full.
