Happy Sunday, and Happy Feast day of St. Blaise! St. Blaise worked hard to improve the physical and spiritual health of his people. He is the patron saint of sore throats…something we have been battling here in my house for the last month it seems. Anyone else with big families deal with the month long viral attacks?!
Pertaining to the physical health aspect of St. Blaise’s life, I decided to whip up a healthy breakfast idea to help you with your health journey. I like to make these egg cups on Sundays and have them for the rest of the week. They are so easy to whip up, and they warm up perfectly. I hope you love the recipe!
Egg White Breakfast Cups
You will need:
- 16oz carton of egg whites
- 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
- 2 scallions (green onions), dark green ends chopped only.
- 5-6 slices of honey ham, (or cooked bacon, turkey, or meat of your choice) chopped into small pieces
- 1 medium vine ripened tomato, chopped. (I discard the seedy inside to reduce excess liquid.)
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
To get started, preheat your oven to 325*F. Spray a muffin pan with nonstick spray. I prefer to use a silicone muffin pan with this recipe as it guarantees nothing will stick. You can also make this recipe in an 8×8 casserole dish and cut into squares. Either way, grease your vessel with non-stick spray!
Add all of your ingredients into a mixing bowl. Give everything a gentle stir. Spoon into the muffin cups ensuring each cup has the same amount of solid ingredients. Spoon the remaining egg white liquid into each cup. If you are using a small casserole dish, you can pour everything into one dish and spread it out with a spoon to make sure each part of the dish is evenly layered. This recipe makes enough for 12 full muffin cups.
Bake at 325*F for 25-30 minutes. Let the cups rest for 15 minutes before removing them. You can eat them now, or you can let them finish cooling completely to be packed in a container for the fridge. These are easy to warm up. Just pop a couple on a plate or paper towel, microwave for 45 seconds or so, and eat! Enjoy them alongside some fruit, toast, or just by themselves. I usually eat 2 or 3 in a sitting. They are pretty delicious, so don’t be surprised if you end up reaching for more. Have a blessed week!
Lots of love and many blessings,
Lift up, O gates, your lintels;
reach up, you ancient portals,
that the king of glory may come in!
