Whether you’re looking for a new breakfast option or healthy snack ideas, egg white frittata bites always come to the rescue. Not only are they easy to make, but they are also packed with protein and are perfect to take on the go. The best part is that you can customize the recipe and add your favorite ingredients.

What’s a Frittata?

A frittata resembles an ‘open’ omelet, baked instead of fried. Usually, the recipe requires whole eggs, but you can use just the whites if you prefer a lighter and fluffier texture. Again, you can modify the recipe and add your favorite ingredients to the eggs.

No Specific Ingredients Needed

When gathering the ingredients for your frittata, most people go for a combination of meat, veggies, cheese, and seasonings. A veggie combo we recommend trying is spinach, onions, peppers, zucchini, and mushrooms. However, this would work with whatever is in your fridge. You can add cooked chicken, bacon, or beef chunks for some extra protein.

Some seasonings you can try are chili flakes, garlic powder, hot sauce, or herbs. Of course, don’t forget to add salt and/or pepper to taste. Just get creative and mix and match!

The Benefits of Egg Whites

Egg whites are super rich in protein and won’t add too many calories to your frittata. One egg white provides 4 grams of protein, zero grams of fat, and just 18 calories, making it ideal for gym lovers or people simply trying to live healthily. A frittata will make you feel fuller for longer, and thanks to its rich flavors, you won’t have to go for all those sugary snacks.

How to Make Egg White Frittata Bites

Snack bites are the best way to make these. What you need to do is make your frittata base.

For every six large eggs, you’ll want to mix in ¼ cup of milk or cream, ¼ cup of cheese, and about 3 cups of meat or vegetables.

Wehn prepped (it really is that easy), simply pour the mix into a greased muffin pan. Bake at 400°F for about 15-20 minutes until the bites get slightly golden on the outside.

You can have the egg white bites while they’re still warm or store them in the fridge for up to 3 -4 days and reheat them later.
