Low FODMAP egg muffins with smoked salmon

A few weeks ago I shared the recipe for the crustless quiche with you and I have been eating it several times since.

I really love the recipe and therefore, I want to share a variant of it with you today: low FODMAP egg muffins with smoked salmon!

The crustless quiche recipe was such a good recipe concerning calories and protein that I really wanted to take a piece of quiche with me to work for lunch.

But because that totally isn’t practical, I thought I could better make it into egg muffins instead and I gave a twist on the recipe. The result were delicious egg muffins with smoked salmon and grilled bell pepper!

Update 2022: the serving sizes for red bell pepper have been updated in march 2022. Red bell pepper is low FODMAP up to a serving of 43 gram.

Grilled red bell pepper from a jar has not been tested, therefore I stick to the same serving sizes as for fresh red bell pepper. It is always smart to test for yourself how you react to products that have not been tested yet. 

This recipe uses 200 gram of grilled red bell pepper and makes 10 muffins. Therefore, two muffins are a safe low FODMAP serving size.

How to serve the low FODMAP egg muffins

You can make 10 muffins with this recipe and one muffin only contains 80 calories and has 9 grams of protein! 

Because the muffins are high in protein, they fill you up quite well. I love eating them next to a salad or with some low FODMAP bread. 

I also like having the muffins as a snack. I regularly bring two muffins with me as a snack and I find it a nice pick-me-up for when I get hungry.

The muffins are also perfect to serve with a brunch or festive breakfast. A very versatile and handy recipe!

    Hi! I am going to make your banana bread recipe and was looking for something to make from the leftover 3 eggs from a 6 egg package 🙂 I think I am going to make these, but I don’t think local shops carry canned grilled bell pepper (France/Switzerland border area). Any ideas what to substitute? Maybe if I oven roast fresh bell pepper? Or some other veggies like zucchini?

    • Hi Lucie, you could definitely roast your own fresh bell pepper, but you could also just put pieces of fresh bell pepper in the muffins. Other veggies would also be fine!

    I have just bought the ingredients for these, but accidentally picked regular Quark. Will this be an issue?

  • Elisha says:

    Hi! What type of smoked salmon do you purchase? I’m writing from Colorado. Many thanks!

    • Karlijn says:

      Hi Elisha, here in the Netherlands we just have one kind of smoked salmon haha. It’s just plain smoked salmon with no extra ingredients added.

  • Barbara Mullock says:

    We really enjoyed this dish. It was easy to make and very sustaining. I made it with sheep’s yoghurt, frozen spinach, and bottled roasted bell peppers.

  • Lynn says:

    Can you substitute the yougart?

  • Viola says:

    Hey, how long do these muffins keep in the fridge? I am wondering if I made 10 to have 2 per lunch would it keep 5 days?
