I know what you’re thinking…REAL ORIGINAL JULI…and you’re right. This recipe isn’t a original. Really almost any paleo blog you look at out there, you can find some kind of egg muffin/egg cupcake/egg round, but that’s because it’s simple. And that’s what people like. Simple sh*t. Most people don’t like to spend hours in the kitchen, they’d rather be flirting with men at Whole Foods. That’s just me actually. Whatever. I’ve never even talked to a man at Whole Foods. I have hopes of that occurring though. Someday…someday.

Guess what I got this weekend!?!? PaleOMG Black Tanks!!!! Yes I did! Check out the link to buy your own from Renegade Fitness {NO LONGER AVAILABLE}!! We will be getting something even cooler in soon! Just you wait!

no one will even know you did burpees in your PaleOMG shirt!

Anywho, even though this recipe is a bit dumb, it’s still super special to me. You know why?!? Because it was the first video I made of myself cooking!! So exciting! I’m not really good with being on camera. But I tried. I talked about a lot of random sh*t…but that’s what I do in my blog posts so I guess it makes sense. If you think I look stupid in the video…you’re correct. Special thanks to Tom who helped me edit this video and spent hours putting up with me and to Laura (the roomie) for recording me on a Saturday afternoon. She’s pretty damn awesome. And btw, the cooking video is on my YouTube station which has all my wod videos I had to turn in when I did the AgainFaster Wod Series. Some embarrassing. Ignore those. My b.


On-The-Go Egg Bites

  • Yield: 6 1x


  • 1lb ground pork mild italian sausage
  • 12 eggs, beaten (if preferred)
  • 12 narrow sweet potatoes, sliced
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add your ground pork to a large skillet over medium heat. Use a spatula to break it up into crumbly pieces
  3. While the pork is cooking, slice your sweet potatoes a little bit thicker than a chip would be…I’d say the thickness of 2 quarters stacked together. Real technical. Then beat your eggs (unless you are going to crack them directly into the egg cups).
  4. Once the meat is cooked through and there is no pink remaining, transfer that to a plate (a slotted spoon will be best because it will keep the leftover fat in it, but just pouring it works as well).
  5. Now add your sliced sweet potatoes to the pan with the leftover fat and turn the burner on high.
  6. Cook for about 5 minutes per side, depending how thick they are but you want them to be soft so they will cook through fully when they are in the oven.
  7. Now place a cooked sweet potato slice into your silicone muffin pan or greased muffin tin, top it with a little ground pork, then another slice of slice potato and top it all off with some beaten eggs or crack an egg into it, it will bind it all together!
  8. Cook for about 10-15 min or until nothing oozy is moving around in the tins when you check them.
  9. Let cool, top with hot sauce!!


I got about 13 cups made with these ingredients!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. How long do you think these will last? Like, staying fresh wise. It is doubtful they will actually last until the go bad -but I’m just afraid of eggs in my fridge. i don’t know why. I can’t even keep hard boiled eggs in there.

  2. Loved the video! So cool to have a voice to go with your ramblings haha! How the heck are you still single? You’re such a cool chick!

  3. We absolutely LOVE the video!! You rocked it!! I also have to say thanks for showering before you filmed it! 🙂 You look amazing on camera! Can’t wait for the next one!

  4. You’re exactly like I imagined you! Except with an even sexier butt since you always talk about getting fat off nut butters…whatever girl. Keep eating those nuts!
    So one comment — I totally feel you on the tea hatred, I love coconut milk lattes with maple syrup, it’s my kryptonite. BUT! You have to try Good Earth brand original tea. Most tea tastes like dishwater, and if you add coconut milk it tastes like dishwater with coconut milk added, but good earth is truly glorious. It’s sweet — naturally — and kinda spicy, and it keeps me awake at work until I am free to dash to the coffee shop and spend too much money on delicious delicious espresso.
    You are amazing and I tell everyone about you with even the slightest provocation. “Oh you’re engaged! That’s awesome! Speaking of awesome, check out PaleOMG! Maybe you can get in shape in time for your wedding…er, what?”
    Ok, I’m done verbally molesting you. Party on!

    1. Hahahaha Thank you SO much for the support Juniper, I seriously appreciate it soo sooo much!! I’ll have to try that tea out. But it’s the last one I’m trying. I have so many stupid boxes of tea at this point.

  5. Juli that video was absolutely hilarious! It was a nice way to start a Monday. Loved the spontainious white girl dancing! Can’t wait to see what you have in store for next time.

  6. Sooo excited to have a video finally! Very nice addition to your already engaging site! 🙂 Congratulations… the video was exactly as I expected it to be from you… FUN and easy to relate to and watch! BTW – purchased a black tank the minute I saw the photo on the site!! Even before I started reading your entry and watched the video! 🙂 Looking forward to more fabulous dance (err… I mean cooking) videos from you! You rock the spandex by the way… no more comments about your a$$ and nut butters!!! I’d love to have your a$$! Wait.. that didn’t sound right did it? Well, you know what I meant! 🙂

    1. Lol you can’t even see my ass in the video Rebecca. I wear black pants for a reason 😉 Thanks so much for your support Rebecca, you freaking rock!

  7. Great first video, I am looking forward to more! I think as you make more and get more comfortable on camera you will start killin’ it!! Well you were killin’ it with the dance moves already lol.

    Thanks for all the awesome recipes, it helps keep paleo from being boring!

  8. I may or may not have laughed out loud in class watching this haha. Awesome job!

    Totally laughing with you, not at you, of course


  9. Your video was awesome! and I can’t wait to try these out especially because I can have them on my Whole30. Also I want a black tank so I can show off my fav blog! 🙂

  10. Fun! haven’t tried egg muffins like this yet, but they sound super yummy! Totally great video too! love the dancing interlude…. might have to incorporate that into my cooking routines as well… my hubby will LOVE it! 🙂
    oh- and just ordered a rockin’ black tank – yeeeiah! stoked to spread the paleomg love!

  11. ugh last comment. i am boring myself. by good life i meant enjoy life chips. which you knew b/c you are probably as cool as me. 🙂

  12. I don’t think you’re too bad a dancer. Let’s see some more. Would you please tell me what that song was?

  13. Just made these tonight! Only burnt one finger (why do I always forget that things muffin tins are hot when they come out of the oven??) Of course mine look way messier than yours but we’ll see tomorrow if they taste just as good! I added bacon because…i love bacon….

  14. You look amazing!! Cool to see you in action, both cooking and dancing =) What size tank are you wearing in the video? I’ve got to get one now that they are in black!!

  15. I’ve only been paleo for a few weeks so i’m looking for new things: you made a comment in your blog somewhere about losing weight on paleo (which is my goal) and you said eating too much sweet potato and you gain weight, so now i’m freaked out, I cannot find on all the paleo sites i’ve visited a clear way to do this diet to lose the weight 🙁
    i love that i already feel better but if i could get a cute ass like yours i would be sooo thrilled! 🙂

    1. Hey L! Any sort of more starchy veggies like sweet potatoes, squash, and even super sugary fruit can lead to weight gain depending on your body composition. I gain weight very easily so having veggies such as sweet potato spike my insulin pretty easily which leads to gaining weight. If you have more questions, just check out my aboutme page and email me!!

  16. I finally got the opportunity to watch your video and I loved it! You do a great job including the audience and being real. You are so funny! And you totally convinced me to try and make these egg muffins…they look better than any others I’ve made before. I love the sweet potato idea! Thanks for great recipes!

  17. Mom appreciates the apology. Awesome video! You make cooking fun – -and your food is always wonderful. Just like Matt, I laughed out loud! And loved the dance. Can’t wait for the new video.

  18. JULIE!!!

    OMG, where have you been all my life? Kidding. No, I’m not. Don’t tell my wife. She’ll cut my head off and make it into soup. How’s THAT for paleo?!

    ANYWAY…just found your site, peed myself laughing at this video (no really, it was bad). Putting up my own site very soon. I think you’re me in a different body. An American one. Yes. Otherwise, we are like twins, humour wise. Isn’t it lame when you think someone’s funny cuz they remind you of YOU? Yeah, thought so.

    You should make more videos!!! Gotta pick up one of your tanks. Keep up the hysterical, awesome work =)

    1. Lol yes, another video will be coming! It’s not as thrilling. I was half asleep. But it will have to do. I’m excited to meet you some day. I’ve always wanted to know what my male version was like

  19. Dude… J Bizzle (that is my new nickname for you hope you dont mind) …

    Just made these tonight for the first time. Pretty freakin bomb. I added some sauteed onions and used spicy Italian. Yum.

    Nice work!!

  20. I just made these bitches and they are fantastic. Today is our 3 year anniversery and I look forward to making one of your recipes for dinner.

  21. Amazeballs! The egg muffins and your video! Thanks so much for the recipe…will save me on those days when I am running late in the morning, which is of course Mon-Fri! Keep it up!

  22. OMG! I just made these. I don’t usually like egg muffins but these are fabulous! The sweet potato makes all the difference in the world. My tummy is doing the happy dance.

  23. First time I’ve visited the site. First I’ll just say that your awesomeness is very apparent even for someone that I’ve never met. Second, I totally lost my shit around the 9:16 mark with “pour all the GOOBS”. I will forever refer to egg whites as goobs from this point forward. So thanks for that. Great video (make more, dancing is optional but encouraged), great recipes all around from what I’ve seen, keep living the dream.

  24. Just made these and I’m just venturing into Paleo, they’re awesome!! The video made me excited about cooking them because it showed how easy they really are!!

  25. I love that you said that you try to love tea but you don’t! I have so much tea that I don’t drink!

  26. Just made these and the were a hit for the entire family! My 4 year old calls them “Egg Cupcakes” haha Thank you!!

  27. Holy eff! If I made cooking videos, this would totally be how they would turn out! I love small-kitchen-dance-parties! (And you totally don’t have a man voice!) (Enough exclamations yet?)

    Never thought of using sweet potato layers–great idea. I will make these as soon as I can get some pork sausage. Thanks for posting!

  28. Thanks for a great recipe! I live in Australia and I’m new to paleo & am constantly looking for yummy recipes to try. Having just tried these (I used beef mince with herbs & garlic) I think they’ll be a favorite, especially when working night duty! Loved the video too 🙂

  29. Awesome job on the video, Juli! I can’t believe it took me this long to discover your site. What an awesome wealth of information and I love the way you write! It’s so refreshing to find someone else that refuses to take working out/eating healthy too seriously. 😉

    Looking forward to diving in deeper here!

  30. Juli! Can you send the link to where you purchased your silicon baking cups?? I tried looking online and there are mixed reviews on some. thank you

  31. Your recipe calls for a sweet potato but it looks like you’re actually using a Yam in your video. (Yams are more orange than sweet potatoes) Which should be used?

  32. I have been making these every week. I call them my breakfast cupcakes. I make a big batch and eat them throughout the week. I work nights so when I come home in the morning I eat two of them and then pass out. On the topic of cupcakes do you have a red velvet cupcake recipe paleo style?

  33. HAHAA I always cook in my uggies too. super comf. Lovin ur work all the way from Australia. Keep it up chika. U should head over here. Heaps of hot fit single surfer dudes.

  34. Well my first batch of these are in the oven! Had a few minor mishaps. Forgot to take the paper off the bottom of the meat at first, that was fun. Discovered I only had five eggs then four because my toddler pulled the carton off the counter. Then I forgot to save the larger slices of sweet potatoe for the top, so there are little midget sized slices on top lol. Whew, through all that they are baking!! And I’ve been drooling over the recipe for weeks, can’t wait to try them. 🙂

  35. Hi, just found your site and LOVVVVIINNNGGG it, by the way you totally sealed it on my loving ur outlook with the phrase “I keep trying to like tea but I don’t”…..literally lol’d! this is me, I have a “tea cupboard”, extremely well-stocked (cuz the stuff never gets used) and a single coffee container (which gets refilled every time I go grocery shopping!) can’t wait to try out some of your recipes!! 😉

  36. I’m making these as i watch your video! Thanks for the company! 😉 Can’t wait to taste these. I used mix of 85% lean beef and turkey and used chorizo seasoning to make the meat mixture! House smells … smoky! 🙂
    I also tried making the spinach/egg cups and it was a big hit! Yum!
    Thanks for motivation and your awesome spirit!!!!
    Cheers from sunny San Diego!

  37. How do you store these? I have tried freezing them and they always taste pretty gross afterwards. I guess it is just something that you need to eat that day…

  38. Hi!

    I hope I’m not being redundant, if somebody already asked this question.. Instead of using a whole egg can you use egg whites? Will it cook the same?

    -May be a silly question but I am cooking newbie!


  39. I made these little bad boys for breakfast this morning, and they were a definite success!!!! My kids are scarffing them down as we speak. Thanks for all the yummy recipe ideas! And your bad a$$ writing style. Lovin paleomg. ;D Happy Sunday!!!

  40. Juli – I started the lurong paleo challenge and have been looking for good recipes. Most of them are boring. I finally found your site and love all of your recipes! So I tried one today, this one, the Egg Bites Muffins. OMG LOVE THEM! Thanks for the great recipe, cant wait to try more of yours! I am so glad I finally found a paleo recipe site by someone who loves food as much as I do! Keep up the great work! 🙂

  41. Thank you for posting your recipes in this video form… it makes the process of actually cooking much easier to follow and to first hand see the results. This recipe was my first pick to attempt from your site. It came out so incredibly good that i cannot wait to try some more! I have already promoted your site to nearly everyone I know! YOU ROCK! p.s. this was the first time i have EVER eaten sweet potatoes and like it!!!

  42. Hi Julie! Love this recipe and can’t wait to try it. Quick question–think the egg bites would stay good if they were frozen? I’m in college and a quick breakfast is always best. Thanks for all these great recipes!

  43. Hey Juli,
    I just came across your website looking for some Paleo recipes and found yours. (I have Lupus and I’m just discovering that the grains might be part of the problem so I’m hard at work to revamp my food.) So anyways I tried the egg cups and they’re great! I put a bit of kale in there too and it was perfect. Thanks so much!

  44. Funny you mention grocery flirting.. I found myself flirting at the Whole foods salad bar one time! I happened so quickly, I was quite shocked because that doesn’t usually happen to me. I am new to your blog but loving it! Good Luck!

  45. JB,
    OMG I am in love with this lemme tell you why. This is a PERFECT Zone/Paleo snack! I feel like a good chunk of your website/blog viewers are CrossFitters (myself included) which a lot of CrossFitters follow a Zone/Paleo diet (myself included). ..So basically I wanted to suggest that you maybe make a Zone/Paleo tab that could possibly have different 1, 2, or 3 block snacks and meals!?? I really love all that you do on here but sometimes its hard to fish through and make sure the recipes are balanced blocks before I make them! Again, just a suggestion and I’m not even sure if you’ll notice this comment but I really hope you do because that would be paleoOMG awesome!!
    P.S. Ive just ordered a black tank cant wait super excited yeeee!

  46. Hi there! I really enjoy your videos and recipes! You’re a great pick-me-up when I’m feeling down! And holy bajoly I am the laziest when it comes to cooking so I highly appreciate your easy peasy recipes. I would like to buy one of those awesome tanks. On the Renegade site I can’t find a sizing chart (please tell me if I’m just a complete knob and it’s totally there right under my nose). For a 6′ tall 148 lbs gal what size would you recommend? It looks like they are a lovely long fit.

  47. I seriously don’t know why you are not on the cooking channel, I’m pretty sure they can move past the whole not professional thing once they saw how hilarious you are and how good the food is!… and I can’t find the shirts 🙁 help?

  48. Just made these and LOVE them! I only used 1 sweet potato. My kids loved them too. Thanks for sharing the recipe. I will add it to my list of great recipes to make over and over and over….

  49. This is the first video of yours I’ve watched & I loved every minute! Keep it up, looking forward to watching more, I was rolling with laughter! ;)ty

  50. I have made these twice and they are delicious, easy to prepare, and very handy to pack and take to work. A dozen is enough for a light breakfast for my entire work week. Thanks Juli!

  51. I think you’re awesome!! I get all of my recipes from your site and just ordered your book and am trying to find the tanks too. Everyone at work always tries my soups and can’t believe they’re paleo. Anyways, I’m rambling, but you’re very inspiring and thanks for what you do!! Also, love this recipe, delicious!

  52. Love the video made me giggle and you are too damn cute! Your energy Reminds me of myself 25 years ago! Have to go paleo due to digestive probs and can tell the difference the first day. I believe this is the best thing I’ve ever done for my body. Anyhoo can’t wait to try the recipe ,
    Thank you!

  53. These are so amazing!! I just add different veggies and feed them to my Parrot for breakfast and myself 🙂 we love them!!!!
