Most of us know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But sometimes eating is the last thing on your mind when you’re running out the door. We bake these in the oven with added steam so the texture is that of “sous vide” eggs—soft and fluffy!
These egg bites are great to prep for those busy mornings. Enjoy them as a high-protein snack or slip one between a whole grain English muffin as a healthy brekkie.
- 6 eggs
- 3/4 cup low fat cottage cheese
- 1/2 cup low fat, plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1 cup chopped spinach
- 1/2 cup chopped roasted red bell pepper
- 1 garlic clove minced
- Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
- Red pepper flakes, to taste
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Add ingredients into a blender and pulse until well combined. Lightly grease a silicone or mini muffin tin then divide egg mixture evenly among the muffin cups.
Fill a casserole dish with ½ to 1 inch of water, then place the egg muffin tin into the dish. If the muffin tin doesnt fit inside, just place the water on the baking tray below the muffins.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until the egg bites are cooked through.
Makes 4 to 6 servings or 12 to 14 egg bites. Best eaten within 3 to 5 days.
