How to Make Cauliflower Muffins Recipe
To make this recipe, combine riced cauliflower, diced onion, shredded cheddar cheese, Italian seasoning, and egg. Scoop into muffin tins and bake. It's very easy if all the ingredients are already prepped.
Keep packages of cauliflower rice in your refrigerator or freezer for impromptu cauliflower egg muffins anytime.
Using muffin tins makes the cooking process very, very easy. Regular or mini muffin tins coated to prevent sticking will work. We are partial to the mini size which cooks quickly and also becomes bite-sized. It's the same thinking we used for our Zucchini Egg Muffins recipe.
Note that pressing down with the back of a spoon or fingers will compact the mixture for a nice firm muffin that does not easily crumble.
Have these for a healthy snack.
Or, as a side for breakfast or dinner....if you have any left after you pull them out of the oven. 🙂
