Egg White Breakfast Bites

These low-calorie, low-fat egg white bites make a quick weekday breakfast and they're equally as convenient for midday snacks. In order not to waste egg yolks and to save time, I like to use a carton of liquid egg whites. Egg whites tend to be rubbery, so adding in the cottage cheese helps make them creamier. You can store extras in the freezer and reheat as needed.

  • cup roasted red peppers, drained and chopped
