Hey friends! Today I wanted to share something a little different. I haven’t done a recipe in awhile, but this one I really wanted to share. I have been counting macros, and realized I have a hard time getting in protein. I don’t like to eat eggs by themselves, so I finally found an easy way to get in a little more protein by making egg muffins.
They are super simple to make, here are the ingredients:
– 1/4 cup of cheddar cheese (shredded)
– One carton of egg whites
-One bag of Birds Eye protein southwest blend from the freezer aisle
-spray bottom of a 12 cup muffin tin
-preheat oven to 350
-warm up protein blend in the microwave for 4 minutes
– spoon the blend into the cups evenly
-distribute cheese evenly into the 12 cups
-fill the cups with a carton of egg whites, use the whole carton
-Bake at 350 for 20 minutes
You could really use any veggie blend from the freezer aisle at the grocery store with this recipe, but I prefer the southwest blend because it has more protein, and it has a little kick to it which makes the muffin not taste to much like eggs.
I can eat two or three egg muffins at a time, so it’s a great protein source! Also, you can put them in a bag and freeze them, and pop in the microwave for a minute or so for an on the go breakfast with staying power. Here are the nutrition facts per muffin:
Protein: 7.1 grams
Fat: 1.5 grams
Carbs: 9.5 grams
Enjoy! I would love to hear if you decide to make these, or what other blends/veggies you use instead.
QOTD: Are you a big egg eater? What is your go to breakfast food?
