IQS Breakfast Energy Meffins
coconut oil or butter for greasing
1 lb. ground pork or beef
1 C. chopped leftover or par-cooked-and-frozen veggies, such as carrot, squash, peas and zucchini
8 oz. cottage cheese
several T. freshly chopped herbs (I use sage and thyme) and/or 2 tsp. dried herbs and spices (perhaps a pinch of nutmeg)
handful of grated Cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 3 500 F and lightly grease a 12-cup muffin pan. Brown the meat in a frying pan with a little oil, then remove and set aside. SautÃ© the veggies in the pan using the fat from the meat. Beat the eggs in a bowl, then add the meat, veggies, cottage cheese, herbs and spices. Spoon into the muffin C. and sprinkle with the grated cheese. Cook for 15-20 minutes. Best served warm.
