To eat: Baked Egg "Cupcakes"

My co-worker shared this recipe, and I love it! This is a fast, easy, and healthy way to make breakfast for a few days (or mid-morning snacks).


  • 9 whole eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 C spinach
  • 4 slices prociutto
  • 1/4 C parmasan cheese
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
To make:
  • Pre-heat oven to 350
  • Mix all ingredients except olive oil in a bowl
  • Oil a cupcake pan (12-cupcake sections)
  • Pour mix into the 12 sections
  • Put pan into oven and cook for 30-minutes
  • Let cool
  • Enjoy!
Why they're good:
Eggs have tons of nutrients - top of my list right now is DHA (gotta make those boys smart!)
Procuitto has protein and a lot of sodium which is helpful for long runs (or spin classes in my case)
Spinach has a ton of iron and calcium - great for growing bones
Parmesan is packed with calcium

I'm going to guess these tasty eggcakes pack ~100-150 cal each, little fat, and negligible carbs (from the veg) making them a perfect snack food (on top of breakfast).
