Megan Koscinski, MS, RD
For the days when you’re pressed for time or need to eat on the go, don’t skip breakfast. Make our dietitian-approved egg white bites instead!
These single-serving ham and veggie egg white bites are excellent high-protein and low-carb post-op meals. Diced bell peppers and spinach add a pop of color and nutrients. Ham and egg whites provide protein and are the perfect comfort breakfast. Use this bariatric recipe in your meal plan as a tasty way to support portion control.
Swap the ham for the veggies if you need a quick and delicious vegetarian option.
1 tbsp olive oil
2 cups bell peppers, diced
2 cups baby spinach, chopped
1 cup mushrooms, diced
¼ cup crumbled feta cheese
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 ½ cups liquid egg whites
⅓ cup fully cooked ham, finely chopped
Preheat the oven to 350 °F. Grease a non-stick muffin tin with cooking spray.
Mix the egg whites, bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach, feta, ham, and garlic in a large bowl.
Scoop ⅓ cup of the mixture into each muffin tin cup.
Bake for 25 minutes or until the eggs are set. Carefully remove from the hot pan and enjoy!
Freeze or refrigerate leftovers in an airtight container for convenient egg bites on the go.
