Oven Baked Egg Whites Recipe

Ingredients for Oven Baked Egg White Bites

All you need is seven ingredients for this quick and easy breakfast recipe. This recipe is gluten free and can easily be made dairy free. You will need:

  • egg whites
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • roasted red bell peppers
  • bacon
  • cheese- use dairy free cheese or omit cheese for a dairy free recipe

For the egg whites, either leftover egg whites or the liquid egg whites from a carton can be used. This is a great recipe to make if you have needed to separate eggs to use only the egg yolk for another recipe. Don’t let the extra egg whites go to waste!

How to Make Oven Baked Egg Whites

Step One: Preheat oven and prep pan

To start, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Then, spray non-stick cooking spray or olive oil spray into a 12-cup muffin pan or muffin tin. (This can also be made into 24 mini muffins.)

Step Two: Add mix-ins to pan

Next, chop the roasted red pepper and divide them into the muffin cups. Then, add the chopped bacon and shredded cheese.

Step Three: Add eggs

In a medium-sized bowl, combine the egg whites, salt and pepper. Whisk them to combine well. Pour the egg white mixture over the cheese. Be sure to divide the mixture evenly so they bake evenly.

Step Four: Bake eggs

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until slightly golden on the edges and the eggs are set. Once cooked, remove from the oven and let cool. Either enjoy these egg bites right away or let cool and store in an airtight container for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

If you decide to save these for a delicious breakfast throughout the week, pop a couple in the microwave for 30-45 seconds when you’re ready to eat them.

How to Separate Egg Whites and Egg Yolks

A really quick way to separate eggs if you are using whole eggs is to crack them all into a bowl and then gently using your fingers, pull out the egg yolks.

The most common way of separating eggs is to crack the eggs in half and bounce the yolk back and forth in the shell until all of the egg white is separated from the yolk. This process works but is not as fast as cracking them all into a bowl at one time.

Recipe substitutions

This recipe is really easy to change from the kind of seasoning, meat, vegetables and cheeses used. If you enjoy these egg white muffins give these other combinations a try:

  • Seasoning- onion powder, garlic powder, hot sauce, cayenne pepper
  • Meat- sausage, cooked ground beef, cooked ground chicken, cooked ground turkey, turkey bacon
  • Vegetables- spinach, tomatoes, onion, green onions, red onion
  • Cheese- cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, cream cheese, feta cheese, colby jack cheese, cottage cheese
