  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir spinach until wilted. Remove from heat and cool spinach. Squeeze spinach to remove excess moisture.

  • Whisk egg whites and egg yolks together in a large bowl; add Parmesan cheese, Mexican cheese blend, garlic powder, sea salt, and spinach and mix well. Pour egg mixture into the muffin cups almost to the top. Place the muffin tin on a rimmed baking sheet and pour water halfway up the sides of the muffin tin to create a water bath.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until muffins are set in the middle, 20 to 25 minutes.

I added some chopped up red bell pepper for sweetness..came out great! I also used a small carton of egg whites rather than separating 12 egg yolks. Will be great for an on-the-go snack! Read More

Wouldn't go thru the trouble of separating 12 egg yokes again but the recipe did give me an idea. These were dry and could have used a few more of the yokes or mayo to moisten them up. Read More

I think this is a great recipe and you can do all kinds of variations. For instance, I go to Weight Watchers and I use spinach, cherry tomatoes cut in half, and the egg whites. These are so tasty and they have no points. You can add red bell pepper, and next time I intend to saute some of the red pepper and onions to the cups. Put in whatever you would like: bacon bits, turkey sausage, artichokes - there is no end to the good things you can add to this recipe. Read More

Made as written and these were good. I don't think the parm was necessary but that is just my opinion. Read More

Excellent! I didn t have hot sauce so I added 2 small pinches of red pepper flakes. Next time I might reduce the salt just a tiny bit. Read More
