Egg White & Chicken Sausage Quinoa Cups


A couple of weekends ago I made a breakfast dish for our work week that is easily a new favorite of ours. It's pretty healthy, easy, filling, delicious and saves a little time in the mornings. I'm always concocting dishes made with chicken sausages and quinoa, I can't get enough of either. Yum! 


Healthy Breakfast

Ingredients:
*makes 9 egg cups

6 oz egg whites
1 cup quinoa, cooked (I cook mine in chicken broth)
Large handful of fresh spinach
1 cup cheddar cheese (or whatever kind you prefer)
3 chicken sausage links, sliced up (image below of what I use from Sam's Club)
Sprinkle in a few dashes of garlic powder for seasoning

Preheat oven to 350 & spray a regular size muffin pan with cooking spray. Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl until they're mixed well. Scoop mixture into each muffin pan cup, you can fill them pretty full. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove and let them cool a little before removing them from the pan. Enjoy! 

I put them in an airtight container and kept them in the refrigerator all week. We'd take 1 or 2 out and pop them in the microwave for about 20-30 seconds, so so tasty.

Here is the type of chicken sausage we use from Sam's, delicious and oh so flavorful! 


Healthy Breakfast

Do you have any favorite breakfast dishes that can be prepared ahead of time?

I hope you all have the BEST Christmas with your families. We'll be spending ours in Kansas with my in-laws and I'm looking forward to some quality time away with our family. I'll be back next week with a new must have lip product. MERRY CHRISTMAS FRIENDS! 

*Reminder, don't miss the $115 Sephora gift card giveaway! Also, I'm participating in a fun little loop giveaway on IG tomorrow so don't miss out. Follow me along on Insta here.

  4. I have gotten into a kick of making pumpkin spice quinoa pudding in advance. I make it individually in mason jars and grab one as I'm leaving for work each morning.

  18. These look so delicious. I like the idea of a quick breakfast because I don't usually have time to create a whole meal. I should make a vegetarian alternative to this.
