Swaps Or Alternatives
The beautiful thing about this egg white bite recipe is that it’s super easy to customize it based on your preferences and/or ingredients on hand.
If you don’t have turkey sausage, you can substitute pork sausage or chicken sausage in its place. Alternatively, if you don’t have any kind of sausage, bacon would work great here, too!
Any kind of shredded cheese will also work great in this recipe, so feel free to substitute in the one that you prefer. I’ve tried this with everything from pepper jack to mozzarella cheese and it’s always delicious.
When you take your high-protein egg white bites out of the oven, allow them to cool for a few minutes before taking them out of the muffin cups. This will allow the egg white bites to congeal and will make for simpler removal.
If you don’t like the texture of cottage cheese, you can emulsify it by using a mixer to blend it in with the egg whites. If you want to add more flavor, throw in some veggies!
