Egg white breakfast cups

February 13, 2017

These tasty breakfast cups were inspired by my usual breakfast that if you follow me on InstagramΒ Β I am sure you see quite often, egg whites, bacon and home fries cooked with peppers & onions.. I probably eat this at least 3 times a week and I figured why not throw them all together and make some easy grab and go egg white cups out of it. The end result was a delicious breakfast cup filled with all my favorites and just 1 smart point each! To see the home fries I use and the nutritional info you can refer to my product review.

Egg white breakfast cups
Author: 
Recipe type: Breakfast
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
 
1SP/1PP each
Ingredients
  • 1.5 cups frozen home fries
  • ¾ cup diced green pepper
  • ¾ cup diced onion, I use red onion
  • Dash of salt & pepper
  • ½ tsp cajun seasoning
  • 4 slices low point bacon, cooked (I use Wegman's center cut bacon)
  • 2 cups liquid egg whites (in the carton)
Instructions
  1. In a large frying pan over medium heat cook your home fries using a little cooking spray, add in your diced peppers & onions, salt & pepper and cajun.
  2. You can cook your bacon at this time in a separate pan, drain, crumble and add to home fries.
  3. Preheat oven to 375F.
  4. Once home fries are cooked (about 15 minutes) spray a 12 hole regular muffin pan with some cooking spray, best to spray well.
  5. Add ¼ cup of home fries mixture to each muffin cup, then pour your egg whites over the mixture until cup is full. Repeat for all 12 cups, you may require a little more than 2 cups of liquid egg whites.
  6. Bake in oven for approx 20 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes then carefully remove cups using a knife to scrape around edges.
  7. Makes 12 cups at 1 smart point each (1PP) *Please note I did not figure the nutritional info out for these, simple math tells me that because the only ingredients with points is the home fries (8SP) and bacon (4SP) then each cup is 1SP, the egg whites per muffin has a 0SP count, if you have 3 or more at 1 time then I would add 1 point for the egg whites.
  8. Best stored in fridge, after 2 days I would freeze.

    How do get your egg whites to not stick in pan? I have tried oil Pam butter all to no avail. Thanks. Love your recipes we use them all the time

    Have you tried using the paper cupcake liners? I wonder if they would work? I really want to try these!!!

      No, I am not sure if they would just stick to those and make a mess, but if you try let me know the outcome please πŸ™‚

        They stick to The paper liners so you lose a good portion of your egg

          I did not use paper liners as I knew they would stick, I did not reference to use them in the recipe..

    Is it possible that the measurements for the home fries are incorrect? 1.5 cup of fries divided by 12 is way less than 1/4 cup per tray? Still they were very good though πŸ™‚

      Hi there, your forgetting about the peppers/onions, the 1/4 cup in each muffin cup includes them as well πŸ™‚

    can you tell me what home fries you are using?

    I made these today and my family raved about them! There were 2 slight differences. I used McCain’s sweet potato fries instead of hashbrowns because I didn’t have any. And for some color, I added a pinch of shredded lowfat cheese to each so the points may be up by one. I also used Pam as the cooking spray as they came out of the pan beautifully.

    I have made these a couple of times now, I love them! I do tend to freeze them after 2 days, then take out and put in fridge for breakfast in the morning! I also changed bacon to turkey bacon as no bacon on hand!
    Thanks for the recipes!

      Hi Jacque, glad you enjoy the egg cups and good to know they freeze well thank you πŸ™‚

    How would the points change if I used the whole egg, not just the whites? (New to this… thanks!)

      Hi Toni, eggs are 2 points each.. so say you wanted to use 6 eggs, you would add 1 point extra to each cup

    would this work in a cup in the microwave?

      Reply Drizzle April 30, 2017 at 2:27 pm

      Hi, good question, all I can say is give it a go.. as long as your potatoes and veggies/bacon are cooked

  • Reply Niki June 9, 2017 at 10:16 pm

    Hello! These look delicious! How long do they stay good in the fridge? And do you just pop them in the microwave in the morning?

      Mine usually don’t last much more than a day in the fridge just because they get eaten quickly πŸ˜‰ but a few days should be ok, sometimes the onion will discolor though.. you can freeze them too.. and I like re heating in oven for 5 minutes or toaster oven, not a fan of heating food in the microwave

  • Reply Mary Ann June 12, 2017 at 7:38 pm

    I made these and they were delicious! However, I froze them and found them quite dry when I reheated them. Any tips to avoid this?

      Reply Drizzle June 13, 2017 at 4:14 pm

      Hi Mary Ann, I personally have never froze them, they always get eaten in my house πŸ˜‰ maybe someone else will see them comment who have frozen them and can offer up a tip πŸ™‚
