Hey there W+A friends. What a beautiful weekend we had here on the Island. Unfortunately our mom and daughter trip to Savannah was cut short this week due to hurricane Irma. It was a bummer, but I sure am happy my mom and I got back to New York safe and sound and were definitely thinking about all of our friends, family and those down South getting hit by this crazy hurricane. It was definitely an interesting 24 hours to say the least, but I wouldn't have wanted to spend it with anyone else! We made the best of it and still got to experience some good ol' Southern eats along the way! Would you think otherwise? I decided to do some weekly food prep since John is back to work and we like to plan our meals for the week. I had bought some fresh veggies at Trader Joe's on Saturday and decided I could use some for our breakfast. I love prepping breakfast stuff since cooking in the morning doesn't always fit into my schedule. For anyone who has tried the egg white bites from Starbucks, I absolutely love them. But almost $5 for breakfast can be steep, so I deiced to make my own. Here's what you'll need.
2 cups of egg whites
1 cup of mini pearl cherry tomatoes
1 small onion
3 slices of Canadian bacon
1/2 cup of part skim mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp of grated cheese
salt + pepper
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray your muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray. My recipe yields nine muffins. Saute tomatoes and onions in a nonstick pan on low heat. Once softened, add your diced Canadian bacon and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Once veggies and bacon are done cooking, let cool for about 5 minutes. Then scoop a table spoon of mixture into each muffin tin. Season your egg whites with salt and pepper and scoop into muffin tins. Top each muffin with part skim mozzarella and grated cheese. Bake for 20 minutes on 350 until tops are golden brown. Let cool and place in Ziplock bag for the week. Easy and delicious!
Each morning I like to take one muffin out and nuke in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds. You can also let sit until it gets to room temperature and then enjoy. I'm hoping to food prep a bit more this week for our dinners. Its always easy to have food cooked on days that seem to be a bit busier than others. I've also been doing some research on air fryers. It will definitely be my next kitchen purchase. I would love any recommendations on what your favorites are and what you like to cook in your's. Share your recipes and suggestions! We hope you all have a great start to the week. Stay tuned for more recipes too :)
