But this recipe which I’m sharing today is a solution for many. You actually are going to have your breakfast like a king. So right from this Easter day, you can start doing this.

Muffins, are a sweet baked dish for majority of us, right? But these days, the savory muffins are getting popular. These breakfast egg muffins are winning the hearts of millions due to its health benefits. There are different types of muffins. English style muffins which are yeast raised and cooked on a griddle, may date back to the 10th or 11th century in Wales.
American style muffins are ‘quick breads’ made in individual molds. Quick breads (chemically leavened as opposed to yeast leavened) were not developed until the end of the 18th century. This took place in America, where pearlash was discovered. Pearlash is a refined form of potash, and it produces carbon dioxide gas in dough. Amelia Simmons published recipes using pearlash, and we exported some 8,000 tons to Europe in 1792. Baking powder was not developed commercially until 1857.
These muffins are quick and easy. We are foo-foo people. Hence I added a generous amount of Nando’s extra hot chili sauce and tabasco sauce. Bell peppers and spinach are two things which are very nutritious and low carb in nature. I added plenty of spinach as we all love it and its very healthy. Tomatoes are the only carbs added to this. But that is healthy anyways. I used unprocessed cheddar cheese blocks, which adds on to proteins and gives the extra flavor to your senses.
Chicken mortadella is optional, it can be replaced with sausages or any form of chicken or meat your prefer. I just gave a quick fry with some butter, chopped it roughly and added to the muffins. These additions will give you fullness feeling since you are low on carbs. Add on these extra dishes to your Easter brunch table and delight your guests to the core!!!! Don’t forget to let me know how your Easter turned out.
