They can be prepared in less than 30 minutes and are very good as meal prep. The great thing about these is you can make them early and keep them in the fridge for when you want to eat them.

Really they are good as a snack at any time of day, but they are really good as a quick and easy high protein and low carb breakfast. Just heat them up in the microwave and take them with you for a warm low carb breakfast to go.
