  • 1 tablespoon Mrs.Dash® herb seasoning blend
  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 2 cups Special K® cereal

Preparation

  2. In a skillet over medium heat sauté the onion, nuts and seasoning blend in olive oil. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well. 
  3. Divide the mixture into 12 muffin cups (approximately 1/3 cup each) and bake for 30 to 40 minutes until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Rest for 5 minutes; remove from muffin tin to cool.

Helpful hints

  • Place entire recipe into a greased casserole dish and bake for 45 to 60 minutes. Serve plain or with low-sodium gravy as a meatless meatloaf. 
  • Add green or red pepper, jalapenos or other vegetables of choice, if desired.
  • Try as a high protein dessert muffin with cinnamon and sugar or maple syrup and even chopped apples instead of onion and seasoning mix.   
  • Substitute the Greek yogurt for cottage cheese or tofu. Cottage cheese is higher in sodium. Check the label for the brand lowest in sodium.
  • Bake, covered with foil if you prefer a softer texture, or bake longer until rich golden or dark crust if you like a little crunch.
