This is a hugely popular breakfast choice at Starbucks and we’re bringing you a copycat recipe for you to make on your own. It’s a great on-the-go breakfast option packed with protein.
Recipe makes 8 bites
3 whole eggs
4 egg whites
1/2 cup low-fat organic cottage cheese
1/4 cup feta cheese
1/4 cup finely chopped roasted red peppers
sea salt and black pepper
olive oil or coconut oil spray cooking spray
- Put a pot of water on to boil. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Set out a large baking sheet and a 12 piece muffin tin. (You are making a water bath, aka a Bain Marie.) Spray the inside of tin with olive oil or coconut oil cooking spray.
- In a food processor, combine whole eggs, egg whites, cottage cheese, and cheese. Blend on low until incorporated. Add roasted red peppers and blitz 1-2x to incorporate (we don’t want to puree the red peppers!)
- Pour about the egg mixture evenly into 8 of the cups. Once they are all filled, carefully pour the boiling water into the 13×9″ pan until it comes about halfway up the sides of the muffin sections. Carefully transfer baking dish to preheated oven.
- Bake at 300 for about 30-40 minutes, or until centers are set. Let cool slightly. Run a dinner knife around the edges of each egg bite and gently tip them out onto serving plates.
