If you’re getting tired of grabbing a quick protein bar or bowl of cereal in the morning, there’s a new quick and simple breakfast option hitting store shelves that will make you feel like you had time to enjoy a healthy, full breakfast.
You simply place them in the microwave for 45 seconds and they’re all ready to eat with your morning coffee, take on-the-go or quickly pop into your mouth if you’re in rush.
The egg bites come in four flavors. Meat-lovers can try out the bacon and cheddar cheese bites, or the bites with ham, bell peppers, onions and cheddar cheese. For vegetarians, there are bites made with roasted red pepper and mozzarella cheese, or Italian-style bites that include sun-dried tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese.
All four varieties are gluten-free and have 16-18 grams of protein per pack. They are available in packs of two in retail stores nationwide including Whole Foods and select Target stores.
The brand Nellie’s Free Range Eggs also makes egg bites using a gentle sous vide cooking method, so they are extra fluffy. Available in three flavors — uncured ham and swiss, broccoli and cheddar, and uncured bacon and pepper jack — you can find them at retailers nationwide.
If you don’t want to make your way to the store or can’t find them where you live, you can also try your hand at making your own on-the-go egg bites.
This recipe for keto breakfast eggs is actually a copycat recipe for Starbucks’ egg bites. The low-carb recipe from Flavcity calls for eggs, cheese, cottage cheese and your favorite toppings. You’ll also need a baking dish and muffin tin.
If you’d rather take the time to make a full omelet, IHOP has unveiled the trick to making their omelets so fluffy. The secret probably won’t surprise you when you really think about it: It’s pancake batter!
The restaurant chain claims to add pancake batter to the eggs before they’re cooked up into omelets, and that’s what gives the omelets their flawlessly full texture. Of course, this isn’t likely something you’ll have time for every morning, but if you’re making both pancakes and eggs, you may want to consider mixing the two together!
