I received this recipe years ago from a Weight Watchers leader. It's fantastic! You can adjust and play around with the ingredients as you like (I'm not a fan of spinach) You can also make them not-diet-friendly by adding sausage, bacon, ham, other cheeses - I like jalepeno in mine with onion and mexican blend shredded cheese. Plain old pepper and egg are good too. AND they can be frozen - so I grab a couple and head out the door to work, by the time I'm there a min or less in the microwave warms them up and I'm ready to have a healthy breakfast. LOVE this recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
This makes a great low-carb breakfast. I have made these many times in the past. You can make up a batch and store in the fridge for several days..just warm them up in the microwave for a few seconds and you have a quick breakfast. Sometimes I will add some diced ham to them and they can also be made with 3 large eggs instead of eggbeaters.
I did not have egg substitute on hand, I used three extra large eggs instead. I also used regular sharp cheddar. This was okay--edible but bland. If I were to make it again, I would play around with the recipe a bit to make it more flavorful.
I love this recipe - easy, healthy and tasty. I make mine "greek salad style" - Along with the base of eggs and spinach, I use low fat feta cheese, add a tsp of dried oregano, red and green bell pepper and onion. They are tasty and easy - freeze well, and are great heated in the microwave on a slice of whole grain toast. One note: make sure you spray your cupcake pan well, or use foil muffin liners:)
