South Beach Diet Extravaganza!!

This was an entire day of cooking. We made egg muffins to have for breakfast through the week and then  dinner and dessert for that night.

Egg Muffins My recipe goes something like this:

12 eggs, beaten

4 oz low fat cheese, grated (I used pepper jack)
4 oz turkey sausage, browned
1 red/green pepper
1/2 onion

Brown, turkey with pepper and onion. Season with salt and pepper. Line muffin tins with cupcake liners and spray VERY WELL with non-stick spray. Spoon sausage and veg mixture evenly throughout muffin tins. Top each with cheese. Pour eggs over top and bake at 350 for 30 minutes-ish or until eggs are set.

Spinach Souffle Stuffed Chicken
This is one of my tried and true South Beach Diet Cookbook recipes. It awesome every time. It’s something I’d consider eating everyday. It’s best served with mashed cauliflower and the sauce that the recipe instructs. Decadent even.

Mocha Creme Somethings
This is my second attempt at a South Beach Cookbook dessert. BLEH BLEH BLEH. Nothing I’ve ever made is any good. I will stick to my fudgsicles.

Here's the recipe I used for my Egg Muffins:
Kalyn's Kitchen Egg Muffins 
(Note: I've used this website a couple of times now.  There are a lot of healthy and delicious recipes on there.  Definitely check out some of the other recipes on there, too.)  So, the muffins are great.  This obviously can be changed based on the vegetables, cheeses and meats that you have on hand.

The chicken recipe I used was the same exact one that Meredith used.  South Beach has never tasted so good!  I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but it was kind of a messy prep.  Well worth it, though.  The spinach souffle was surprisingly very flavorful.  I'd definitely make this again.  The best part was, when I brought it into work the next day, my friend commented on how delicious it looked.  She couldn't believe that it was made with a frozen food product.
 And finally for that disastrous dessert.  Obviously, something went very, very wrong because my eggs tasted scrambled instead of custard-like.  I won't make that ever again!  Lesson learned!


  1. Great recipe! Why do not adding ham to this great idea? ;)

  2. Mmm... actually the next week I swapped the sausage for ham in the egg cups!
