Egg Bites Recipe


  • Nonstick Muffin tin
  • Blender
  • Steamer Basket


  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 cups fresh spinach, 3 ounces


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a nonstick muffin tin with olive oil.
  2. In a blender, place the eggs, cottage cheese, salt, and several grinds of pepper. Blend until smooth.
  3. Place the spinach in a steamer basket and set over a pot filled with 1 inch of water. Bring the water to a simmer, cover, and steam for 1 minute, or until the spinach is wilted. Alternatively, you can steam spinach in the microwave without a steamer by placing the leaves in a microwave-safe dish with a tablespoon of water and covering it with a microwave-safe lid or plastic wrap with a small vent for steam to escapeMicrowave on high for 1–2 minutes, or until the leaves are wilted and tender. Transfer to a strainer and squeeze out the excess water. Roughly chop.
  4. Place the spinach in a medium bowl and add the peppers and scallions. Toss to combine and measure ¼ cup of the mixed vegetables. Set aside.
  5. Evenly divide the remaining veggies among the muffin cups. Pour a scant ¼ cup of the egg mixture over the vegetables in each well. Divide any remaining egg mixture evenly among the wells. Evenly sprinkle the reserved ¼ cup vegetables on top.
  6. Bake for 18 to 22 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan.
