How Do You Like That, Cupcake?

I know you’ve been anxiously awaiting another recipe post. Ever since I made that Meatza masterpiece, I’m sure you’re thinking “what can’t this girl do?” Besides stick to a lower-carb diet, cook, run fast, or avoid alcohol. So that’s why I was happy that my Crossfit trainer finally gave me the recipe for Paleo Egg Cupcakes. Unfortunately, I was also trying to count out 100 flutter kicks at the time and I’m horrible at retaining any information that isn’t celebrity related. So this is the recipe I came up with from what I remembered.

Paleo Egg Cupcakes

Ingredients:  (You can customize most of these.)

  • One dozen eggs, whisked  (I had leftovers, so you could probably use 10 or 11 eggs)
  • 1/4 lb lean ground beef, cooked
  • 1/4 red, green, and yellow pepper, finely chopped
  • 1/4 onion, finely chopped
  • Mushrooms, finely chopped
  • Jalapenos, finely chopped
  • Spinach, finely chopped  (I forgot this, but I meant to put it in there and that counts for something.)
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic salt or powder

1.  Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

2. After preparing all veggies and meat, add them to whisked eggs and whisk some more. Don’t argue, just do it. (You can make life easier and use a food processor instead of hand chopping. Process spinach last so it doesn’t liquefy.)

3. Spray cupcake pan with non-stick spray. Spray it like it’s mace and the pan is your attacker or all your cupcakes but 2 will stick to the pan.

3.  Add 1/4 cup of the mixture to cupcake pan.

4. Bake for 20 minutes.

5.  Eat ‘em up, Buttercup!

These turned out pretty good! They’re a really healthy, low-carb snack for when you’re trying not to drink and eat ice cream pie before races. 😉 I used 1/4 tsp. of salt and garlic and it wasn’t enough, so I increased those for the recipe but you may need to experiment with them. They’re especially good topped with cheese, salsa, or hot sauce. Or my new fave, Ortega Green Sauce. (yum)

  1. OMG I need to try those…they look delicious! I wasn’t sure what to expect when you said…but…mmm!

  2. I made something similar when I was in college. They freeze well too!

  3. These are so cute! Just so you know, I’m expecting weekly recipes now. You’ve set the bar, and we want more!

    I’ll be making those, most definitely. In case anyone is interested, I figured out the breakdown: Each one has around 100 calories, 6 grams of fat, and 8 grams of protein.

    I”m going to try your Paleo egg cupcakes! They look yum-o. I just printed out the recipe 🙂

    Random question: any guesses on how long those would last in the fridge? I want to make them but am debating making a half or a whole pan based on how fast I could get em in mah belly. Just wondering.

  7. Paula! Im always so proud of you for your cokoing and memory recipe!!!

    Those look amazing! I don’t know if it’s my attention to detail or what, but I had to read this twice looking for where the chocolate was. Then the lightbulb turned on. Holy moly. Thanks for exercising my brain this morning :).

  9. You are so domestic, I can’t freaking stand it! Next, I’d like real cupcakes. With buttercream frosting. Get on that, will you please?

    I love recipes that are easily adaptable. Although I think I’d rather have a real cupcake 😉

    Wow! I can’t believe I won!!!! I and my feet thank you!!
    Also, that egg cupcake recipe looks complicated. I only do recipes with 5 ingredients or less. Basically, I’m a terrible cook.

  12. Those look great. I wonder if you could freeze them?

  13. That actually looks good, in a non-cupcake kind of way! Too much work for my taste though. Could you make these for me, freeze them, and them send them my way so I don’t have to cook at all? Thanks!

    “Like mace” – cracked me up. You were on when you wrote this one – I laughed out loud (enough that I thought it deserved to be written out in full as opposed to an lol). Looking forward to next week’s recipe – possibly souffle – that’s not complicated at all — or maybe something requiring a white sauce.

  15. Think I’ll be making these lovelys for the Silk Marvelous Mornings House Party I’m hosting this weekend (yep got another house party…that makes 3 since moving to Columbia, and only had 2 in Orlando…hmm).
