Savory Zucchini, Bacon and Herb OMM

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!

  • 2 tbsp golden flaxseed meal
  • 2 tbsp almond meal
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 dash salt
  • 2 tbsp grated zucchini
  • 1 tbsp chopped toasted pecans
  • 1 large whole egg
  • 1 tsp bacon fat melted
  • 1 tbsp real bacon bits divided
  • 1/2 tsp chopped fresh thyme divided
  • 3 tbsp full fat cream cheese warmed


  • 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)
  • 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.
  • Mix in your zucchini, pecans, egg, bacon fat, half of the bacon bits and half of the thyme.
  • Microwave on high for 60 seconds (90 seconds if using a weaker microwave)
  • Garnish with a nice layer of cream cheese and then sprinkle the remaining bacon bits and thyme on to the top!
