  • 4 pieces turkey bacon, cooked + chopped

  • 1 cup egg whites⁠

  • 8 eggs⁠

  • 1 cup cheddar cheese⁠

  • 2 cup cremini mushrooms, sliced + cooked

  • Olive or avocado oil spray⁠

  • Salt and pepper (as desired)⁠


  1. Preheat oven to 350

  2. Spray muffin tin with olive or avocado oil and set aside

  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, salt and pepper.

  4. Into the muffin tin, add a small spoonful each of cooked mushrooms and turkey bacon. Then, pour the egg mixture over top, filing so there is a bit of room at the top. Finally, sprinkle a bit of cheddar cheese into each muffin cup.

  5. Place into the oven and cook for 17-20 minutes. (Note: If the top isn’t golden, feel free to broil for 1-2 minutes at the very end.)

  6. Cool for 10 minutes before taking a knife or spatula and scooping each “cup” out of its container and onto a clean dish.

  7. Serve immediately, or wait to fully cool before placing into storage containers for easy breakfasts throughout the week.
