- Using a silicone muffin tray makes it so easy to remove the muffins from the tray. If you are using a standard muffin tray you may want to grease the tin with some butter for ease of removal.
- When you pour the egg mixture on top of the salami, it may run into the bottom of the tray. This is fine and won’t affect the outcome at all.
- These muffins can be stored in the fridge for up to a week or in the freezer. These are great to store in the freezer and grab out the night before for a quick and easy breakfast.
- If you aren’t a fan of salami you can use any of your favourite deli meat like ham, sliced chicken or sliced turkey.
- The cherry tomato makes these keto egg muffins look pretty, but you can leave it out if you are not a fan of tomato.
