Cottage Cheese and Bacon and Egg Breakfast Muffins

August 22nd, 2019


One of my favorite “low-carb conscious” recipe websites is Kalyn’s Kitchen.  She has creative recipes for South Beach, Paleo and Keto diets to name a few.  David has been on the Keto diet for long enough for it to have become a lifestyle choice.  Sometimes he craves more than bacon and eggs for breakfast.  These muffins made with mostly almond flour fit the bill.  There is a small amount of flour in the mix, but not enough to give him pause.  The muffins are spiked with bacon crumbles, green onions and Parmesan cheese.  I love them too.


I thank Kalyn for this wonderful recipe.  I may serve them when the whole family comes for the Labor Day Weekend.  They are quick to assemble and will be an easy breakfast for 14 people all on different schedules.  Let the fun begin!  Happy Fall.



  • 2/3 cup cottage cheese (regular or low-fat)
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup white whole wheat flour

    I can’t wait to try these! I’ve been doing keto/low carb for the last 6 months! I’d love for you to share some of your husband’s favorite meals! I could use some new recipes!

      Thanks Sally. David loves cauliflower mashed potatoes with steak or chicken, grilled vegetables, keto friendly sausage balls which I blogged about, my last post of Bulgogi lettuce wraps and stir fries with cauliflower rice.

    I didn’t realize you had a garden, Penny. I should have tomatoes & peppers to bring next week. These look yummy for our big crew! Can’t wait to see you guys!

      That is the other Penny who has a garden Darla, not me. Looking forward to the fun. I may or may not make these muffins. I already have a freezer full of blueberry muffins, orange muffins and homemade biscuits.
