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??

Isn’t it ironic?

This morning I got up wanting to knock out 4 miles outside because the weather has been gorgeous and running outside > running on the treadmill. On mile 1.5 this song came on:

and what do you know? It started pouring rain. Everytime I see people running in the rain I think they are crazy. Today I was one.

Attractive, I know.

To get that image out of your head I’ll share with you yesterday’s outfit.

Whew, much better! I purchased everything on sale for a total of $50 at J. Crew…score.

Yesterday’s breakfast was a warm one. I toasted 2 Van’s Waffles and made my own peanut butter spread to top it off with.

Anyone still own Peanut Flour?? Try this.

1 tsp of Peanut Butter (I used White Chocolate Wonderful) 1 TBSP of Peanut Four (Trader Joe’s) and 1 1/2 TBSP of Chocolate Almond Milk.

Mix it to get more peanut butter with all of the taste and none (ok, less) of the calories.

Spread your waffles with your beautiful creation

Top with an abundance of fruit. Enjoy 😉

This surprisingly kept me full for hours. I didn’t eat lunch til 2:30! I have gotten a little more comfortable with my chef’s at work and now I request my own meals instead of ordering off the menu.

Is that bratty? Oh well, I’m a healthy brat. I had them saute up some fresh veggies (no butter) and add it to a tiny bit of whole wheat pasta and some chickpeas with a ladle of marinara sauce. I couldn’t even finish so i still have half saved for today. I wont bother them with my brattiness 😉

For dinner we had something I made 2 weeks ago and stuck in the freezer. Mama Pea’s Zucchini Quinoa Lasagna.

When Adam came home and asked what was for dinner I told him and he said I neeeeed meat I’ll never be full.

One piece and he was “stuffed” and it was “realllly good” Vegan Meals/Alyssa 1 – Adam 0.

Oh before I forget the cake batter protein that I use is Muscle Milk Light. It’s actually on sale right now on this website. I add it to Oatmeal, Shakes and even cookies 🙂

Time to get ready for work. For today’s Thirsty Thursday I highly suggest one of these.

QUESTIONS: What is your favorite type of protein? What are you drinking on this Thirsty Thursday?
