egg muffin carb question.
Hi I'm new but,I have a favor to ask.Can some one who is good at breaking down carbs in recipes help me out? I made egg muffins this morning and want to know what the carbs are.
6 eggs
4 slices Bacon
3/4 c shredded Mexican blend cheese
2 T half and half
1/2 t baking powder
2T chia seeds
Baked into eight muffins.
I thought it would of made 6 but I had pour 2 more. I was wonder what the carb count was thank you sorry if this sounds dumb. I just terrible at that kind of stuff.

Here's a link to the USDA database where you can look the individual items up:
Foods List

Also, use the product package info that you have as well, because brands can vary quite a bit.
So if I say your cheese has 4g carbs for that 3/4 cup, your actual brand may have potato starch or something in it that makes it 6g.

I think I got it. Each egg 1 carb,Tbls of chia seeds 6 carb, the cheese I used was 1 carb for 1/4 c
The Bacon had zero carb. Divided by 8.
2.6 carbs per muffin. Maybe next batch ill only add 1 T of chia seeds. I used heavy cream not half and half.

I'm not sure if you're doing "net carbs", and unfortunately I don't have time to check...but the Chia is really high in fiber, which effectively cancels out the carbs. Check your chia package for the carb/fiber ratio.

Ok, I'm home and I checked my chia package.It says 5 carbs per Tbls. All fiber so I don't count it,right? Sorry this all new to me. So now I figured out that they are 1.1 carbs per muffin. Whatever they were they were good.
