These Mediterranean Egg White Breakfast Cups could be made ahead of time and refrigerated for up to a week.
So convenient, then when ready to consume, you can just reheat them, or if you are like me – just eat them cold (no time!).
I used roasted red peppers (from a jar), green olives (black or Kalamata could be substituted), green onions, spinach and feta. The combination of ingredients is one of my favorites and you know that.
I could have added sautéed mushrooms, but I felt that there are already too many ingredients in these mini breakfast cups. Feel free to add mushrooms, if you’d like.
I eat eggs pretty much every day. Most of the time for breakfast, but also for lunch and dinner. There are so many things you can cook with eggs.
I’m so tired lately. I’ve been sick. Too busy! I had to cancel travel plans. I even had my first root canal. Can you believe it? I’ve always tried to take care of my teeth, but unfortunately this happened. But I need a break from all that has happened to me lately! This month (February) has been terrible for me.
Thankfully I’m doing ok now and I’m in an “active mode”. I’ve started to work out, go for long strolls with my son and make nutritious meals like these Mediterranean Egg White Breakfast Cups.
Have a great week!
