Healthy Egg Muffins with Turkey Bacon
These Healthy Egg Muffins with Turkey Bacon are easy to prep, taste amazing, and can be stored and reheated the next day for a delicious grab-and-go breakfast! They're a perfect way to start the day.
- 12 slices of lean turkey bacon
- 20 oz. egg whites
- 3 small eggs
- 2½ oz. lean turkey sausage
- 2½ oz. red bell pepper
- 2 oz. baby spinach or chopped regular spinach
- 3 oz. yellow onion
- 1 clove garlic
- ½ Jalapeno chili
- 1½ tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. pepper
Heat the oven to 350 F (175 C).
Coat a muffin pan or 12 muffin forms with a little cooking spray.
Wrap a slice of bacon around the inside of each muffin form. Place a little spinach at the bottom of each one.
Finely chop the onions, jalapeno, and garlic. Lightly coat a medium pan with cooking spray, then add the chopped veggies and sauté for a few minutes over medium heat until the onions are translucent.
Take the onion mix off the stove and divide it evenly between the 12 muffin forms, placing it on top of the spinach.
Chop the sausage and bell pepper, then distribute between the muffin forms.
In a mixing bowl, combine the egg whites, whole eggs, salt, and pepper. Whisk everything together.
Pour the egg mixture into the muffin forms, adding enough so that it just covers the veggies.
Bake for 25 minutes on the middle rack.
This recipe is for 12 servings. Each serving is 1 egg muffin.
To reduce the calories, you can omit the turkey bacon. However, I recommend including it because it adds saltiness and flavor, plus it's relatively low in fat and high in protein.
You can substitute the bell pepper, onion, or jalapeno for other veggies if you prefer.
These egg muffins are great reheated, so they're a good choice for meal prepping.
They can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.
