These are protein and veggie packed muffins. Filled with egg whites, a few whole eggs, vegetables, cheese and bacon. Great breakfast or quick meal any time of the day. Also freezer friendly!!
You can use whatever vegetable or protein you have on hand. I used spinach, tomato, bacon, and cheese. Perfection. I ate two of them as soon as they came out of the oven. And if I get hungry later in the day, these will be a great low carb, high protein snack!!
I first layered the muffin tins with my vegetables, bacon, cheese, and lastly the egg mixture. They baked up perfect like this.
Try these out today, and store them in your fridge for the week!!!
