Simple & Healthy Breakfast Egg Bites


Description

Egg bites loaded with veggies like sweet potatoes and broccoli and topped with crispy turkey bacon.  They are the ultimate on-the-go breakfast or quick snack to grab as you’re heading out the door.  Make them once and enjoy them all week long!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil (split into thirds)
  • 2 cups sweet potato, cubed (approx. 1 medium potato)
  • 1 cup broccoli, chopped (approx. 1 broccoli head)
  • 6 pieces turkey bacon
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1/4 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp mixed herbs (any herb mixture works here, I used a parsley and onion blend)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1/3 cup cheese of choice (optional, I used Kite Hill cream cheese)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F
  2. In 3 separate skillets, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil in each over medium-low heat
  3. Add chopped sweet potatoes, chopped broccoli, and turkey bacon to separate skillets and cook until soft
  4. While veggies and bacon are cooking, whisk eggs, egg whites, nutritional yeast, herbs, and sea salt thoroughly
  5. Line a muffin tin with liners or grease each cup with olive oil
  6. Fill the bottom of each cup with sweet potatoes (you just want a couple cubes to cover the bottom of the cup) then add 3-4 pieces of broccoli on top
  7. Cut turkey bacon into thin strips and place a couple pieces on top of the broccoli
  8. Carefully pour the egg mixture into each cup, filling about 3/4 of the way to the top (you can use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop the mixture and pour into each cup)
  9. Finally, top each cup with cheese, if desired (spit the 1/3 cup cheese into thirds and crumble over top of each row)
  10. Bake in oven for 20-24 minutes, until the edges turn a golden brown and the middle is firm
  11. Serve immediately or store in fridge for up to 5 days*

Notes

*Note : To heat up egg bites from the fridge, warm in microwave or toast in a toaster oven for 30-45 seconds
