Serving Size: 2 muffins
  • Protein - 15 g
  • Carbs - 9 g
  • Fat - 29 g

Ingredients

  • 1/2 link all natural kielbasa (~ 6 oz.) or 1/2 pound ground sausage
  • 3 cups almond flour
  • 3/4 cup organic heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs, whisked
  • 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes and green chilies, drained
  • 1/2 cup red bell pepper, diced
  • 1/4 cup green onions, finely diced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Cooking Utensils

  • 12-count silicone muffin tin
  • large non-stick skillet
  • large mixing bowl

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 F.  Prepare silicone 12-count muffin baking pan.
  2. Brown the sausage in a skillet. If using kielbasa, cut into small pieces and sauté until it’s browned. If using uncooked ground sausage, cook until it’s browned and crumbled. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the almond flour and heavy cream. Add the eggs and whisk until well combined.
  4. Add the browned sausage and remaining ingredients: 1 cup ROTEL, red bell pepper, green onions, salt, cumin, garlic powder, and pepper.
  5. Using a melon ball scooper, fill each muffin holder to about 3/4 full. You will have leftover batter, so you have the option of using a 2nd baking pan or waiting until the 1st batch is done.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cool and serve.

 

Notes:

For the non-paleo version: add 1 cup organic cheddar cheese, mexican blend or mozzarella shredded cheese

Store leftovers in an airtight container and leave in the refrigerator up to 5 days.

If you are only making this recipe for 1-2 people, you may want to 1/2 the recipe!

If you would like to use an aluminum baking pan, add muffin liners and coat with olive oil cooking spray.
