The Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook

This recipe comes from a new cookbook: Dirty, Lazy, Keto Cookbook by Stephanie Laska and William Laska. There are 100 affordable recipes that all have less than 10g net carbs per serving. Stephanie has a different approach to the Keto diet. She wrote the cookbook with this in mind: You don’t have to be perfect to be successful at losing weight. Weight loss is possible without so many strict rules. There is more than one way to Keto, and I’m going to introduce you to mine. Stephanie lost 140 pounds eating her version of the Keto diet, and she has kept that weight off for 6 years now. She did it all while still enjoying her favorites like light beer, tortillas and chocolate. It’s an interesting concept, and for sure intriguing for those who have been trying to eat Keto!

Here’s a sampling of recipes you’ll find in the book:

  • Slow Cooker Taco Bell Soup
  • Big Mac Salad
  • Cool Ranch Dorito Crackers

How to make Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites:

This is a very easy recipe! You’ll need a muffin tin (this one is my favorite). And you’ll spray 6 cups of the muffin tin with nonstick spray. Eggs are whisked together with Swiss cheese, cottage cheese and a little salt and pepper. Then the egg mixture is divided between the 6 muffin cups. Before baking, you’ll top each one with cooked, crumbled bacon. They bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

Try making different variations of egg bites. Ham and cheese are a good combo. Use all vegetables. Try cheddar or another cheese in place of the Swiss cheese. Be creative… the possibilities are endless!

How do these compare to real Starbucks Egg Bites?

They’re a pretty good copycat. The egg bites are Starbucks are made in a sous vide cooker. So they will have a different texture than this copycat version. Making them at home vs. picking them up in the Starbucks drive-thru allows you to be in control of the ingredients. This Copycat Starbucks Egg Bites recipe avoids “fillers” like potato starch that are commonplace in commercial production.

    Do they use cottage cheese too? Starbucks?
    What would happen or be the difference if I didn’t do the cottage cheese bit?

    • Lori Lange wrote:

      Not sure!

  • Anne wrote:

    I was not Able to reproduce the creamy texture of Starbucks egg bites. I thought the cottage cheese would do it, but you just end up with cottage cheese lumps in a firm scrambled egg mixture. I wonder if they use something like heavy cream to achieve their craziness? Or perhaps if the eggs and cottage cheese were blended in a blender first to pulverize the cottage cheese it might work. Still searching for the best recipe!

    Would the cook time be the same if you use just egg whites?
