Egg White Muffin Cakes

Friday mornings are similar to a Saturday or Sunday morning for me. I don’t have to be in to work until 12 so I have plenty of time do whatever I need to get done. Instead of going grocery shopping or returning some things at Target I took the time out to create myself a new breakfast.

Egg Cupcakes? That sounds disgusting. Egg Muffins? Kind of reminds me of McDonalds. How about Breakfast Muffins? Ground breaking, I know. If you can think of something more exciting feel free to let me know 😉

These are SO simple and really don’t take much time. They’ll also last you for a couple of days which is great when you are always in a rush and almost late to work (not that I would know or anything….)

Breakfast Muffins

Ingredients

  • Egg Whites
  • 2 pieces of bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • Salsa ( I chose chunky)
  • Pearl sized Mozzarella balls
  • Non stick Cooking spray (Olive Oil)
  • Silicone Pan
  • Fresh Ground Pepper

Directions 

  • Spray your silicone muffin pan with cooking spray and preheat your oven to 400 degrees

  • Cut up your bacon and start to fry while you prepare other ingredients

  • Fill up muffin pan about 1/2 or 2/3 of the way with egg whites. I did 1/2 but it wouldn’t hurt to do 2/3.

  • Drop 2 pearl sized mozzarella balls in each

  • Your bacon should be done now and looking like this (if you are vegetarian you would leave this out, duh)

  • Add a sprinkle of bacon to each muffin compartment evenly and add some fresh ground pepper on top. I don’t recommend adding salt because you are adding bacon and mozzarella

  • Lastly add a spoonful of salsa to each and stir well

  • Stick in oven for 28 minutes (depending on how much egg you used)

  • Let cool for however long you can stand it and then gently remove
If eggs could be cute these would be the cutest eggs ever.
Bacon, Cheese, Egg Whites and Salsa in the form of a muffin…yummmmay.
I ate two of these and wrapped the other 4 up for Adam because I know he’s going to be jealous I made these while he was hard at work. I’m so thoughtful 🙂
When you save your leftovers just wrap them individually so you can just pop them in the microwave.
I should also mention that I was impatient when the muffins were cooking and made my new favorite peanut butter sauce with an apple.
I’d say its a Happy Friday indeed.

QUESTIONS: What is your breakfast of choice when you are in a rush??

Italy is Eataly

Adam and I slept in until 10 am yesterday! 10 am!? That is unheard of for me 🙂 Naturally I was starving when I woke up so I headed straight to the kitchen. If you follow me on Facebook you are already aware that I made a delicious breakfast pizza.

One egg (plus a little extra egg whites), 1 piece of turkey bacon crumbled, crabmeat, 4 cheese, old bay on a low carb tortilla.

The best apart about it? It was a dippy egg!

My absolute favorite. This breakfast is so easy to make – If you’re interested I will do a post on how to make one 🙂

After our bellies were full we headed into the city to check out a museum I had a groupon deal to.

I won’t be posting any pictures from inside for your sake.

When we were heading back to the Path (public transportation from NYC to Hoboken) we came across this.

I’ve read reviews from a couple of bloggers so I knew we had to eat lunch here!

If you live in the NYC area and you haven’t been over to check out Mario Batali’s Eataly, get over there now! It’s awesome. Eataly boasts thirty-two thousand square feet of Italian delights. The first floor of the building  houses an epic Italian specialty foods market and multiple restaurants which pair gourmet foods with artisanal wines and beer. It’s crowded but worth it! And the second best part is the eight thousand square foot rooftop brewery/beer garden/restaurant which just opened. The first being the gelato, of course 🙂

SO many choices

I chose a spicy pepperoni and provolone panini

I ate half and saved the other half for dinner… Had to save room for gelato!

I ordered the vanilla with chocolate covered cornmeal cookies (right) and Adam ordered banana and raspberry flavors (left). We ended up switching after a couple of minutes because we both liked each others way better than our own. Plus, his had more 😉

We enjoyed our meal outside because it couldn’t have been more beautiful out.

Call geico?

After walking for a total of 5 hours we came home and passed out. Who would’ve thought walking and eating would’ve made us so tired?? Good news is, I have no work today…

But, I still do have that to do list I’ve been working on for over a week now. Seriously, how did I ever work and get everything done before?? Gotta get to it! Vacation in 5 days 🙂

QUESTIONS: What helps you cross everything off your to-do list? I keep getting sidetracked and need some tips!!
