Grab & Go: Egg White Bites



Egg whites: a healthy food and perfect breakfast (or snack) that can now be grabbed to go during your morning rush! No excuses to stop and get a donut now! It is crucial to start your morning in a healthy way; it will influence you to continue the rest of your day on a healthy streak! 
All you need is a carton of egg whites, a mini-muffin or muffin tin, olive oil cooking spray and your favorite vegetables! It was the quickest process and they tasted delicious.
Ingredients:
¼ onion, diced
½ pepper, diced
Handful of spinach
egg white carton (24 T. total is used)
olive oil cooking spray
black pepper

Instructions:
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Spray each muffin tin with olive oil cooking spray so it lightly coats the bottom
Add your favorite diced vegetables!

I added ripped-up spinach leaves, diced red pepper, and diced onion
Fill each muffin tin with egg whites. When using the mini muffin tins, it only took about 1 T. of egg whites to fill it. 
Lastly, sprinkle the tops with some ground black pepper for a little flavor.
 Toss them in the oven! 
The mini muffin tins took about 10 minutes. If you are using regular sized muffin tins, let them cook for about 20 minutes. 
Once they are cooled, enjoy! You can also add your favorite toppings- my favorite are avocado and salsa!


 Mine lasted in the fridge perfectly for 4 days (I couldn't keep them in there any longer... they were too yummy and too easy to grab and take on the go!)
Each egg white bite only has 10 CALORIES!
I had 8 for a snack which equaled out to about 80 calories! Unless you top it with avocado, the egg white bits have no fat, cholesterol, or sugar.
ENJOY!

  3. I like this idea a lot. Not a fan of eggs from a box so I'll probably use real eggs. Thanks :)

  4. Thanks for the stellar idea. Mine are baking right now. I'm never hungry first thing in the AM (but eat out of habit) and was looking for a low carb, egg white based solution that I could take to work. Hope these turn out as good as they look.

  7. Can these be frozen and reheated to make them last longer? I'm just one person and, as tasty as I'm sure they are, I don't think I could eat them all within 4 days :)

  17. I made these last night; used the normal muffin tins instead of the mini's. 1 full carton of egg whites made 12 "muffins". I added peppers, onions, 4 drops of Frank's Red Hot sauce, topped with pepper and then 2 minutes before they were done, added some shredded cheese! I cooked them for 20 minutes as suggested above at 350 degrees and they came out perfect! I think this will be my new staple for breakfast. I hate 2 and 2 hours later I am still full :) Thanks for the post!

  28. Oh My Gosh! Made them today....Amazing! Since egg whites can be a little bland, I added garlic powder, used red unions instead of regular. I also added feta cheese and diced a little ham for a few of them to test the differences. I have my go to breakfast for ever! Next will add a few strings of shredded hashbrowns. The possibilities are endless!!

  30. What are some other vegetables that could be used. Would mushrooms be a good choice? Because I'm not a onion fan.
