Equipment

  • Muffin pans
  • Parchment cup cake liners
  • Ninja Blender

Ingredients

Blended egg mixture

  • 7 large eggs
  • 1 cup of liquid egg whites
  • 1 cup 4% small curd cottage cheese
  • 1 cup shredded cheese

Optional Ingredients

  • 1 oz diced sauteed sweet onion
  • 1 oz diced sauteed white mushroom
  • 4 slices of high quality diced and cooked bacon I use Hempler’s
  • 1 oz cooked crumbled breakfast sausage
  • 1 oz diced sauteed bell peppers
  • Any other vegetables or breakfast meat you like

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pan filled with water on the bottom rack of the oven, this adds moisture to the oven and egg bites.

Blended egg mixture

  • Place eggs, liquid egg whites, cottage cheese, and shredded cheese in a blender (I use a Ninja blender). Blend it until you can no longer see cottage cheese chunks.
  • Line cupcake pans with parchment cupcake liners. Divide optional ingredients evenly between the lined cups. Pour blended egg mixture over the optional ingredients evenly between cups. Place in the preheated oven and bake for 25 min, or until they look done.
  • Cool and store in an airtight container in the fridge. Reheat in the microwave for 1 min covered.
