I am always searching for easy and healthy breakfast ideas to make our mornings run a little smoother, and these Mini Italian Egg Bites totally fit the bill. Healthy. Easy. Delicious.
When my good friend Jaime shared her Mini Egg Bite recipe with me, I knew I’d love them instantly, so I came up with a version my family loves and we can’t get enough of!
The great thing about Egg Bites is they’re super versatile, so you can customize them however you like. We love ham, but you could also use bacon, or breakfast sausage, or keep it vegetarian by leaving out the meat all together! Use your favorite cheese, seasonings, and fresh herbs always add a nice touch.
For this recipe, I use Perfect Pinch of Italian for a unique earthy flavor; along with freshly grated parmesan cheese, and Italian parsley.
These Mini Italian Egg Bites are light and fluffy thanks to the cottage cheese, which also makes them super moist and tender. Plus, cottage cheese adds a good amount of protein making each bite worth 5 grams total! And if you’re not big on cottage cheese, I promise you wont even know it’s in there.
I like to make a double batch and freeze the extra to have on hand when I need something quick and filling. Just reheat in the microwave and you have a super fast protein filled breakfast.
Mini Egg Bites are also a great addition to any brunch. They are an easy no-mess finger food that can be served at room temperature. Everyone will love them!
A few of these Egg Bites with a side of toast and cup of coffee or tea, is a complete and satisfying meal!
