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??

Rejuiceanation

Friday I treated myself to a lunch out in Hoboken. I usually wouldn’t do this. Especially because I’m currently unemployed, but I had a Living Social deal so it was kind of free?

The restaurant’s name is Rejuiceanation. Their about us section on their website says “Rejuiceanation makes it a priority to promote nutrition and its vital role in helping people uphold healthy and active lifestyles.”

When I got to the restaurant I was overwhelmed by all of the choices on their build a salad menu… I had to be choosey though because everything was quite pricey. $1.75 for avocado? $1.75 for artichokes? $1.00 for asparagus? $2.25 for grilled chicken? $1.00 for sprouts? Add that to my $2.00 lettuce bed and we were looking at a $10 (HALF) salad.

The salad was small but good… It had a lot of avocado (not complaining) but I could’ve made the same thing for A LOT cheaper.

I also ordered one of their fresh squeezed juices. Red Velvet – Apple, Beets & Carrots

That was another $5. My total was around 16 or 17 dollars for the salad and juice. Whole Foods might even be cheaper than that!?

I’ll go there again, but only because I have enough left on my gift card for one more salad and juice. After that I don’t think I’ll be visiting there unless I’m feeling REALLY lazy. Which probably means in 2 weeks.

Adam got home early from work (weeeee) and we wanted to see Horrible Bosses so I made a quick Taco dinner.

Ground Chicken, Vegetarian Refried Beans, Romaine Lettuce, Salsa, Mexican Cheese, Greek Yogurt (used as Sour cream)

I made a taco salad with all the fixins and made us each half of a cheese quesadilla on a flat out.

We took public transportation to the movie (eh, i need to get used to this).

But the view ended up not being so bad.

Even if the people were a little creepy 🙂

Horrible bosses in our opinion was hilarious. It’s definitely a crude type of comedy but the laughs were consistent and I’m always down for a night of giggling. We snacked on a small popcorn which made my belly sad but there’s something about movie theater popcorn that tastes SO GOOD!

I think were heading out to explore NYC. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

QUESTIONS: Have you seen horrible bosses? What is your favorite type of movie? I like a good romantic comedy (typical girl)
