Like so many others, I suffer with IBS which causes major bloating. It’s actually made you can go from a little 24inch waist to practically looking full-term pregnant. Food can be a massive trigger and a specific one I’ve found to cause irritation is gluten. Therefore I’ve adopted a (pretty much*) gluten free diet which has seemed to keep my bloating attacks down!
*I say ‘pretty much’ because I’m still eating the odd bit if I want it, I just suffer after sometimes!
So, I’ve been experimenting in the kitchen, making some nice clean, high protein recipes. I’ve started with a new trainer now so going all out on the nourishing food that will compliment my intense workouts.
That’s when I came up with these little beauties. They’re great for any meal of the day or even as a snack, as they’re such general ingredients. They’re really filling and comforting whilst still remaining clean and nourishing. It’s highly likely you’ll have all of the ingredients at home already, so give them a go!
Here’s what you’ll need
- One large potato (peeled and grated)
- 2 whole eggs
- 1/2 table spoon of flour (ordinary, GF or any alternative)
- Seasoning – I used garlic powder, dried chives, pink Himalayan salt, ground black pepper and mild chilli powder (you can use anything you like)
- Cooking spray e.g FryLight
- Muffin tray
- Kitchen roll
- Pre heat your oven to 180•
- Remove all excess moisture from your grated potato using kitchen roll. This will help make them crispy and not fall apart!
- Add flour and seasoning and coat evenly
- Coat the muffin trays in oil spray to avoid them sticking
- Add a heaped spoonful of the mixture to each muffin space and press firmly with a table spoon, compacting the potato mixture and creating a groove where you’ll add the egg later (I made 4)
- Pop in the oven for around 15 minutes, or until slightly firm.
- Remove from the oven
- Crack your eggs inside (2 will be just egg white and 2 will have the yolk due to the eggs being too big to add one to each!) I sprinkled a little chilli powder on at this point.
- Bake for a further 10/15 minutes or until egg is completely cooked.
- Voila! Enjoy warm.
