Ingredients

  • 6 large eggs
  • 1 cup egg whites (or another 6 eggs)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 orange bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped broccoli
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

Directions

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Coat 12-cup muffin pan with cooking spray, or line with silicone baking cups. (I coated the silicone baking cups with spray.)

Whisk eggs and egg whites in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat a skillet over medium with oil. Add chopped veggies. Cook 5–6 minutes, until they’re a little soft and the onions are fragrant.

Add veggies to eggs. Add in feta and parsley, and mix well.

Use a measuring cup to pour egg mixture evenly into muffin cups, about 1/3 cup each. Bake for 17–20 minutes, or until the egg cups are no longer jiggly and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Allow cups to cool before refrigerating, or enjoy immediately.
