D: Sunday, Eggy Sunday.

Guys!! I wanted to hop on really quickly to share a recipe with you! Jeannette, I’m looking at you (try this one, you will love it I think).

Egg Muffins a la D.

You can use whatever veggies you want/like/have in your fridge, but the following recipe will be according to what I used.

  • 2 bell peppers (green), diced
  • white mushrooms ( I bought the pre-sliced ones), diced
  • ~ 1/2 cup red onion, diced
  • ~ 1/4 cup chopped green onion, diced
  • ~ 2 cups baby spinach, chopped
  • ~1/4 cup diced sundried tomatoes
  • 2 tsp pureed garlic
  • 4 Laughing Cow light cheese wedges
  • ~ 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1200g egg whites (I bought the 500g cartons at the grocery store and used roughly 2.5 cartons)

1. Sautee the veggies (including he spinach) in a skillet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.

2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a muffin pan down with cooking spray.

2. When the veggies are soft, add in the salsa and let it all simmer together for until the veggies are tender-er :D.

3. Put the cooked veggies + salsa aside in a bowl.

4. In a large bowl, mix veggies, laughing cow wedges (I break these up as I add them to the bowl with my fingers), and eggs.

5. Scoop the egg mixture into the muffin pan ( I used a muffin pan with 12 hole thingies)

6. Bake in the oven for about a  half an hour (until something poked into the “muffins” comes out clean)

7. Pop out of the muffin pan (you may need to loosen them with a knife) and let cool.

8. Once they’re cool, store them in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 10 days. You can also freeze these bad boys for a month!

So, I ended up with 20 muffins altogether, which is perfect because I wanted enough to bring for lunch all week (M-F) – so, I will have 4 a day. Nutritionally, I estimate these guys to be roughly 150 calories, 1g of fat and 30g of protein per 4 muffins (so 37.5 calories, 0.25g of fat and 7ish grams of protein per muffin).

    Hey D
    I made them for lunches this week!! They are pretty good. I think my muffin tins are smaller and so it made almost 30 which was WAY too much…but all in all they were really tasty!!

      Hey! I should add that they are best doused in hot sauce 😉 Glad to hear that turn they came out ok – albeit in mass quantities ;0
