Turkey Bacon Egg White Muffin Cups

These muffin cups are the easiest way to start your day with a healthy breakfast – they are perfect for those on-the-go or those who like to meal prep at the beginning of every week. The egg whites and turkey bacon pack in the protein, while the vegetables add in key nutrients. In this recipe, the turkey bacon crisps perfectly and makes a great mold for the egg and vegetable contents. You can change up the vegetables each week to avoid recipe wear out.

  1. I love being able to get in as much protein as I can throughout the day! These muffin cups look like they are an easy way to do that. I’ll bet they are super tasty as well! Plus, turkey bacon is usually cheaper than traditional bacon which makes this recipe even better!
