Bacon, cheddar, broccoli egg bites



  • 1 cup egg whites
  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
  • 1 cup broccoli florets chopped
  • 2 strips cooked bacon chopped
  • 4 ounces grated fat free cheddar
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400° F, 205 C
  2. In a mixing bowl, gently whisk corn starch into egg whites
  3. Mix remaining ingredients into egg white mixture
  4. Spoon mixture into a nonstick muffin tin, taking care to distribute liquid and solid ingredients evenly. Avoid filling cups over 2/3 full - mixture will expand while cooking.
  5. Cook approximately 20 minutes


This recipe is the result of my efforts to make a lower calorie, higher protein version of Starucks's egg bites. These come out dry and spongy (likely because I've been mixing the ingredints in a blender). In my ideal recipe, they would have a custardy texture. I'm considering adding some egg yolks.
