Fajita Ground Turkey Egg Muffins

One of the things I do every Sunday night, in order to be prepared for the week ahead, is pre-make some quick and easy foods. One of our favorites are the egg muffins. The spicy sausage egg muffins are a huge favorite in our house, however, since joining Weight Watchers, I wanted to make some that were less points. Today I decided to use ground turkey and make fajita ground turkey egg muffins! You guys, they are so good! Even better…they are low in points. I like that, just as much as I like how they taste! Gotta love low point Weight Watchers recipes!

Fajita Ground Turkey Egg Muffins

Super easy recipe, perfect to make ahead, fajita ground turkey egg muffins. Only 1 point on Weight Watchers per ground turkey egg muffin!

Course Breakfast
Keyword eggs, freezer recipe, keto, low carb, weight watchers
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 27 minutes
Total Time 37 minutes
Servings 12 people

Ingredients

  • 1/2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 lb Extra Lean Ground Turkey brown
  • 1/2 packet McCormick's Gluten Free Fajita Seasoning
  • 6 large Eggs
  • 1 cup Egg Whites
  • 1/2 medium Red Bell Pepper diced
  • 2/3 cup Shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 tbsp Minced Onion

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare your muffin tin. I use a silicone muffin pan that I really like. 

  2. Brown your ground turkey. Sprinkle half of the packet of McCormick's Fajita Seasoning onto the ground turkey while you are browning it. I purchase the gluten free version, but if you don't need it, just purchase the regular one!

  3. While the ground turkey is browning, dice up your red bell pepper and set aside. Beat your eggs and egg whites and set aside.

  4. Once your ground turkey is browned, place a little bit of turkey in each muffin well. Next add your minced onion, red pepper, and cheese to each muffin well. Slowly pour the eggs over top of it all.

  5. Bake in the oven for 27 mins. Immediately remove the egg muffins from the muffin pan and allow to fully cool on a wire rack. Once cooled, store in an air-tight container in the fridge for 5-7 days.

If you are following Weight Watchers, these work out to just 1 point per ground turkey egg muffin! How cool is that?!? Simply reheat them in the microwave in 30 second increments until they are hot and you have a quick and easy breakfast for those days when you are running out the door. Since I’m up and out the door early to get my son to school (it’s about 40 minutes away), I’m starving and need something quick. These are perfect!

You can customize these fajita ground turkey egg muffins to your liking! Don’t like red bell peppers? Take them out! Add the veggies of your choosing! If you want to make a bunch at once and freeze them, you can! Just make sure you wrap them tightly and I would only store them for about three months. I plan on doing this right before my knee surgery I have scheduled for October 10th. This will help things out a lot in the mornings when I am laid up!


Gluten Free Apple Spice Pumpkin Muffins

My kids love muffins. They normally will leave several bananas to get super ripe so I will make them banana muffins with peanut butter and chocolate chips. I really can’t blame them. They are really good! Since my husband and I are both doing Weight Watchers, I wanted to make muffins that he would be able to enjoy too. These gluten free apple spice pumpkin muffins are not only delicious, but they are Weight Watchers friendly too!

Apple Spice Pumpkin Muffins

Delicious recipe, perfect for the fall! This apple spice pumpkin muffin recipe is 2 pts per muffin on Weight Watchers!

Course Breakfast, Dessert
Keyword apple spice, muffins, pumpkin
Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 21 minutes
Total Time 31 minutes
Servings 14 People

Ingredients

  • 15 oz Canned Pumpkin
  • 1 3/4 Cup Splenda
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1/2 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
  • 1 Cup Dice Apples
  • 1/2 cup Water
  • 2 1/4 Cup Gluten Free Flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. 

  2. Place the canned pumpkin, Splenda, unsweetened applesauce and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend well. 

  3. Add all of your dry ingredients, one by one, mixing each one before adding the next. While you are mixing this, you will want to add the half cup of water. Your mix will be very sticky. 

  4. Dice your apples and fold into the mixture.

  5. Because your mix is sticky, you will not want to use paper liners. Spray your muffin tins well and add the apple spice pumpkin muffin mix to each muffin well. 

  6. Place in the oven and bake for about 21-22 minutes. 

Recipe Notes

If you would like to make this with regular flour, use the same amount of your flour as this recipe calls for!

I am not a fan of cinnamon, but I took one for the team and tried one of these muffins to make sure that they turned out well (minus the cinnamon part). And guess what, they did! They are more the consistency of a bread as opposed to traditional muffins. But all in all, minus the cinnamon, these gluten free apple spice pumpkin muffins are very good!

A Few Tips for these Apple Spice Pumpkin Muffins

I’ve tried several different types of gluten free flour. This Namaste Foods Gluten Freeapple spice pumpkin muffins is my absolute favorite. You don’t need to add anything else to it. Just sub it in place of regular flour. Likewise, if you are looking at this recipe and you are thinking, “but I just have regular flour”…that’s OK! Use it!

Wilton 2103-1112 Scoop-It Batter Spoons, Set of 3Wilton 2103-1112 Scoop-It Batter Spoons, Set of 3Wilton 2103-1112 Scoop-It Batter Spoons, Set of 3

These batter scoops by Wilton is my favorite thing in my kitchen. It makes perfect sized muffins and cupcakes every single time. If my Silicone Muffin and Cupcake panapple spice pumpkin muffins was clean, I would have totally used that. It was probably the best thing I ever purchased. So far, nothing has ever stuck to it!

If you are following Weight Watchers and you are planning on making these muffins, please create the recipe in your app with the specific ingredients you use. While it came out to 2 points per muffin for me, I would hate for you to use slightly different ingredients and have your numbers come out differently. Also, please note that I used Splenda because that is what I had on hand. If you make it with white sugar, your points will come out differently. You could always make it into mini muffins!

Turkey Cabbage Soup

Fall is here and I love nothing more than the cool weather outside and a warm bowl of soup inside! I’ve told you before about my favorite soup, Chorizo Chicken soup. If you haven’t made it yet, do it! It’s so good! Being that I am on Weight Watchers, I wanted to make a soup I can enjoy, but that was not very many points. I threw a bunch of veggies together with extra lean ground turkey and made the most delicious turkey cabbage soup.

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 2 hours 30 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 45 minutes
Servings 8 People

Ingredients

  • 16 oz Extra Lean Ground Turkey Breast brown
  • 10 oz Rotel Tomatoes, with Habaneros
  • 29 oz Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 med Orange Bell Pepper cut into chunks
  • 4 med ribs Celery chopped
  • 1 small Onion cut into chunks
  • 1 med Yellow Summer Squash cut into chunks
  • 1 small Head of Cabbage cut into chunks
  • 6 cups Fat Free Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 tsp N'Orleans Cajun Seasoning
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place your extra virgin olive oil in your frying pan and brown the extra lean ground turkey breast.

  2. Place the browned turkey in an 8 qt stock pot. Add your cans of tomatoes. 

  3. Cut up all of your vegetables and place those in the stock pot.

  4. Add your seasonings and pour the chicken broth over top of all of the ingredients. Next add your 2 cups of water. If the vegetables are not completely covered, it's OK!

  5. Cook on medium high and bring your soup to a boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for about 2.5 hours, or until the cabbage and celery are nice and tender. 

This turkey cabbage soup is absolutely delicious! I’ve made cabbage soup before, but this is the first time I thought to add the cajun seasoning. It was a great decision. The cajun seasoning will forever be added to my cabbage soup! The nice thing about cabbage soup is that you can change up the vegetables to your liking. The only reason I added the yellow zucchini squash is because I felt the soup needed another color! Things like green beans, green pepper, etc would also be good to add to your soup! You really cannot go wrong! If you prefer beef broth over chicken broth…use it!

The fact that this turkey cabbage soup is zero points on Weight Watchers is the icing on the cake! I read once that our body burns more calories digesting cabbage than there are in cabbage. How great is that? It’s like you’re working out while you eat your soup! If you are interested in learning more about Weight Watchers, check out how my first week went! Signing up is easy.

Weight Watchers Ranch Dip – 0 Points

One of the things I don’t like with my new journey with Weight Watchers is that regular ranch dip is like 5 points. I don’t know about you, but I don’t want to spend 5 whole points on 2 TBSP of ranch. As I was walking through Target, trying not to spend a billion dollars, and I remembered that my husband told me non-fat greek yogurt is 0 points. And then I got an idea on how to make my own Weight Watchers ranch dip!

If you aren’t familiar with the Weight Watchers Freestyle plan, things like veggies are zero points. This is awesome for me. I love veggies, but more than that, I love ranch dip. You can dip anything in ranch. Just ask my kids. Making a zero point Weight Watchers ranch dip is a total snack game changer!
