INGREDIENTS FOR EGG BITES
You will need:
- 10 eggs
- 1 cup Monterey Jack cheese, finely shredded
- ¾ cup fresh spinach, finely chopped
- ½ cup fire roasted jarred red peppers, finely chopped
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Cheese: You could pretty much use any type of cheese you prefer in your egg bites. Monterey Jack is a great option because it’s not too sharp or too mild. Other great options are cheddar, Colby Jack, mozzarella, provolone, gouda, or pepper jack for a bit of spice! Just make sure whichever cheese you use is finely shredded so that it melts properly.
Veggies: The Starbucks egg bites are made with just spinach and roasted red peppers, however you could change this up in your own egg bites. Feel free to take out veggies or add others in, such as onions or mushrooms. You could also use fresh peppers (any color) in place of the fire roasted red peppers.
Egg: If you are trying to keep things a bit healthier, you could make your egg bites with egg whites and forego the yolks. You could also make the recipe half and half, using the whole egg for some and just the egg whites for others!
Protein: You could easily add a bit more protein to your egg bites. Try sprinkling in some bacon bits or adding in chopped chicken or ham or ground sausage.
