For years, I lived down in Mexico with a broken microwave. I'd read and read about the "One-Minute-Muffins" in all the various low-carb forums, but never had the opportunity to TRY one! I finally moved into an apartment with a working microwave and gave one a shot. O ... M ... G!!!

Since then, I've been making all sorts of flavors! This is about my 8th flavor combination, so far (on the website, anyway). I wanted to try something different, though. No more SWEET flavors, and no just plan breads, either. I wanted something interesting, unique and special! The kind of think you could serve in place of a bread basket during a nice meal and NO ONE will question you about the lack of "bread" ... they'll just gobble THESE tasty things down and beg for more!

I chose to go "savory" this time, starting with a zucchini base. I then incorporated bacon, parmesan, fresh herbs and a simple topping of cream cheese!

Pretty, tasty and ... pretty spectacular, too!

Method:

  1. In a wide mouthed coffee mug, combine your flax, almond meal, parmesan, baking powder and salt. (I like to grease my mug first, but I don't think it's necessary)
  2. Squeeze the water out of your zucchini, by squeezing it within your fist, over the sink. Un-clump the zucchini, so it is back in strand form.
  3. Mix in your zucchini, pecans, egg, bacon fat, half of the bacon bits and half of the thyme.
  4. Microwave on high for 60 seconds (90 seconds if using a weaker microwave)
  5. Garnish with a nice layer of cream cheese and then sprinkle the remaining bacon bits and thyme on to the top!

Hi Unknown ... um ... not sure. I assume several of them do. I think I have one or two in the 5th volume of the Low Carbing Among Friends serious. I know that there are literally hundreds of recipes on the internet, if you just google it. I hope this helps!

Loving the beginning of my journey; would like to know which cookbook contains the one minute muffin recipe.

Hi there, Kentucky_Lea! I'd probably quadruple it ... should work quite well! :)

Do you think if I tripled this it would be the right quantity for a standard loaf pan? I've got zucchini overflowing like crazy and looking for good uses... Thanks!

YAY! Thanks for the kind words, Tammie! Your little buttered bread sounds divine! No wonder your hubby was so happy! :)

DJ...your recipes are the best ever and have made our low carb life so much more satisfying. I wish you had a show on cooking network! I saw this recipe and only had bacon to use so I made one with bacon, bacon grease, cheese, and pepper. I thought my husband would turn up his nose over the flax seed meal but having buttered "bread" with bacon inside made him speechless. He is a fan! Thank you for posting so many easy recipes for us "simple" cooks.
