Southwest Egg White Muffins

February 2, 2017

I’ve been trying to get back in the swing of this whole healthy thing, and it’ so much easier for me when I have healthy options made and ready in the fridge. The bestie and I made some egg white muffins two weeks ago, and we decided to make them again. When I went to the store, the only package of ground turkey left was “taco” seasoned so I went with it. Southwest theme it was! I opted for black beans (extra protein) and diced jalapenos with a pinch of cheddar on top. These are super easy and great for anyone who is on a low-carb diet.

The recipe for this can be easily changed- omit fillings you don’t like and obvi add ones you do -I mean, duh.  But, the point of this post is really recommending the best way to make these- I’ve tried several different ways and baking dishes and these turned out great!

Usually when I post a recipe on the blog, I have one or two people tell me they tried it. I wasn’t planning on posting this one (this is just an iphone photo from insta), but I had so many requests- here it is!

  6. Pour egg whites directly from carton over the turkey mixtures. (Don't overfill!)
