I don't know if this dish is actually a side dish, but I think it fits more effectively in this category than my other ones. This recipe is super simple to make, fairly healthy, and is high in protein. These baked eggs are great for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a snack. In fact, the first time I made them, I made them as part of a "Breakfast for Dinner" night. Super delish!
I found the original recipe on Pinterest (are you surpised??? LoL!). Find the original recipe here! I tweaked it a little, and here they are!
Cheesy Baked Egg White Muffins
2 whole large eggs
6 egg whites (save the yolks, you can make homemade mayo, and/or hollandaise sauce, like I did!)
dash of your favorite hot sauce
salt and pepper
handful of your favorite shredded cheese (I used cheddar, but pepper jack would also be delish)
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease muffin tin with cooking spray (this makes 6 muffins... I just used 1/2 my tin (mine holds 12) but you could double the recipe and make a full tin).
Beat together whole eggs and egg whites. Stir in salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Fold in shredded cheese. Pour into greased muffin tin. Bake for 15-20 minutes.
