Ingredients needed to make this recipe
How to make egg white muffins
- Prep the veggies. Chop up the mushrooms, peppers and spinach.
- Sauté the mushrooms. This is very easy to do. Heat up about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium size pan then add in the sliced mushrooms and cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes. Add in a pinch of salt and pepper and toss them in the pan right at the end to get them nice and golden brown. Set them aside to cool.
- Combine everything together. Add the mushrooms, spinach, peppers and ¾ of the cheese to a mixing bowl along with the egg whites and stir everything together to make the muffin mixture. Sprinkle in the chives and some salt and pepper.
- Pour into a muffin pan. Use a ⅓ cup measuring cup to pour the mixture into the muffin cups evenly. It should fill up all 12 muffin cups about ¾ of the way full.
- Bake. Cook these egg white muffins at 350 degrees F for 22-25 minutes until the eggs are fully set and the edges of each muffin are lightly golden brown. Remove and let cool for a few minutes.
- Serve. Run a butter knife around the edges of each muffin to carefully release them from the pan. Serve warm ad enjoy! Expert tip: To ensure they do not stick to the pan, make sure to coat the muffin cavities really well before pouring in the filling and let them cool completely before trying to lift them from the pan.
