Simple Egg Bake Recipe

Hello there! Hope your week is treating you well. I’m thrilled that tomorrow is Friday!

I wanted to stop in and share a quick recipe post. The recipe is for a simple egg bake. I’ve been wanting to incorporate more protein into my breakfasts since mine are typically carb-heavy (e.g., granola bar, toast with peanut butter, cereal, etc.), and protein keeps me full longer. However, taking the time to cook something in the morning is just not happening for me. I like sleep too much. 🙂 This week I made an egg bake that I can simply heat up in the morning. Doesn’t get easier than that. Check it out . . .


Simple Egg Bake by Ali Pinkerton

Ingredients 

  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of liquid egg whites
  • 1/2 of a small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 medium zucchini, chopped
  • 8 small turkey sausage links, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 1/2 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease an 8×8 or 9×9 pan with cooking spray.

2. Chop the veggies and turkey sausage. (I chose bell peppers, onion, and zucchini, but you can really use whatever you want. You can also choose different meat or no meat at all to make it vegetarian.)

4. Add egg whites.

5. Season with salt and pepper. (The turkey sausage adds a lot of flavor and spice, so I stuck with salt and pepper, but you could certainly use different spices.) Whisk eggs and egg whites together.

6. Add the chopped veggies and turkey sausage to the egg/egg white mix. In addition, add in the cheese and stir it all together.

Voila! Breakfast for the week. To reheat, simply microwave a piece for 45 seconds.

I cut mine into 9 pieces. I entered the ingredients on MyFitnessPal, and these are the nutritional estimates per serving:
