    Honey I don’t eat meat or eggs I’ve been that way for a long time now when making a salad I can’t go out and order one cause I’ll eat onion green pepper pineapple chunks basil lettuce and baby spinach Not al restaurants serve those other veggies A lot of your recipes include avocado egg tomatoes or meat and I don’t eat any of those things Is there not anything that you have that I can get excited about making without it involving the oven so much Just a thought that’s all I fell asleep around 6:00 last night cause I was tired and never had any supper I’m in such a rut in my eating If you have any ideas I’d appreciate it and would love to hear it Thank you

    looks Delicious and is this soy free or can you make something that has no soy in it

  3. Linnea Hoffmann says:

    Is this 375 degrees celsius or fahrenheit?

    1. Auntie-Aku says:

      Most probably Fahrenheit. My oven doesn’t even go past 300 deg Celsius.

  4. tess says:

    oh… the eggs inside were still liquid after 20 minutes…. what have I done wrong? :((

  5. Alisha says:

    If these are made and I want to save them for a later day in the week, how long would they last in the refrigerator??? They are so tasty so I would like to make them ahead of time and eat them for a couple meals throughout the week. 🙂

  6. Kelsey says:

    These are such an awesome idea. What a great idea! Love savory muffins too.

  7. Pam says:

    I didn’t have turkey slices, so I tried just making these in greased muffin cups. They tasted so light and fresh and flavorful, they were good enough to dig out of the pan with a spoon (which is what I had to do, since the batter stuck to the cups mercilessly with no turkey!). If anyone has experimented and found something that can be used to replace the turkey, post it here please!
    Great recipe!

  8. Hannah says:

    Can this be made vegetarian? What can I use instead of turkey and how would that affect the protein content? Thanks!

    1. Me says:

      I was thinking to replace turkey with tofu for the same reasons 🙂

  9. Monica says:

    I added quinoa to this…soooooo good and filling!

  10. eli says:

    I just made them – they were SO SO SO GOOD! Thank you so much Cassie!!!

  11. Jenny Olatunji says:

  12. Omg, these look very good!

  13. Carly Freeman says:

    Would we be able to use Tofurky instead of Turkey?

    1. Em says:

      Absolutely! As long as it will hold up like turkey, you can use any clean substitute.

  14. Malak says:

    These look FANTASTIC! Can tomatoes be substituted for the bell peppers?

    1. blogilates says:

      sure, whatever you want!

  15. I’m so glad it’s backkkkk!! This is great for portion controlling.

  16. Great idea, Cassey! We’re so blessed in this generation to have so many great and healthy recipes, and the whole notion of taking fun but still healthy food to school. It’s like I wish I had that knowledge when I was younger. 🙂 And hot sauce is my must have ingredient for every meal–it’s an addiction, really. 😉
