Not a fan of 🍳whites?!
I don’t blame you, they literally have no flavor and for some can be a major texture issue. Usually if they taste 🤢 it’s because you need to add flavor and/or some mix-ins. This recipe has both! These can also easily be made with whole eggs to up the fat content but just keep in mind the nutritional value will change substantially. Save this post for next time you meal prep or tag someone you think should try this! 🙌
🌶Sausage and Pepper Egg Muffs🫑
♦️ 2 1/4 cup egg whites
