Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup cottage cheese (I used low-fat)
  • 1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese (+ 1 T for topping muffins if desired)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (white, can use soy flour for gluten-free version according to Heidi)
  • 2/3 cup almond meal (I used Bob's Red Mill almond meal, you can use 2/3 cup almonds ground in food processor for this, which makes it slightly chunkier)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 4 eggs (beaten)
  • 3 strips bacon (cooked until crisp, fat blotted with paper towel, then crumbled)
  • 3 tablespoons green onions (thinly sliced, scallions)

Been making these for months now, added cubed pumpkin, smoked bacon, wanted more flavour from onions so used 1/2 brown onion, topped with grated Parmesan. Cooked 25 mins 190 C fan forced. Freeze, thaw in oven makes these crispy!

Very tasty. I made them in the past but I think I may have cooked them too long

They're now one of my go-to breakfast items. I have them at least once a week! I always make mine with ham but I plan to explore some other meats to see how they compare.

They're delicious! I make these for my teenage daughter who never seems to have time to eat a descent breakfast during the week. My husband and 21 year old love these too.
