Perfect Prep Breakfast
David Arcemant, MS, CSCS
Here is an easy to prep meal for early starters looking to simplify their morning!
Serves 12 egg muffins
Calories per muffin: 145
However, we can drop the calories of each muffin by substituting for egg whites or beaters. Personally, I like to have one substitute with two regular egg muffins for breakfast.
Here is a breakdown of the calories using egg substitute.
With 1/4 cup egg white/substitute
Calories per muffin: 95
After the main ingredients, you can add in any sorts of vegetables you normally enjoy with eggs. Below are a list of suggestions.
-OR- egg whites; egg substitute (1/4 cup each muffin fill)
16 oz. Turkey sausage
2 cups Chopped spinach
1/2 Chopped onion (Optional)
Assorted peppers (Optional)
Ground your turkey sausage and chop your spinach, onions, and any peppers you decide to add.
Prepare baking by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil your muffin pan and place approx. 2 tablespoons of cooked turkey sausage into each hole.
Next, add in your spinach, onion, and any other peppers and cheeses you want to add.
Lastly, place one egg or 1/4 cup egg white into each of the 12 muffin holes.
Place the muffin pan into the oven and bake for approx. 10-12 minutes.
Let cool and prep up for your next breakfasts!
These pair well with Kodiac Cake muffins. Below is the standard mix and how we can change it up to shave off calories!
