CHEAP, FAST & EASY - Egg White Breakfast Sandwich

CHEAP, FAST & EASY - Egg White Breakfast Sandwich

I need protein in the morning or I'm starving before 10! I like to sleep until the last minute possible, but need breakfast on the go. I was buying those Jimmie Dean Egg White sandwiches, when I thought "I can make these MYSELF, and CHEAPER too!" I cook up a dozen egg whites at a time - the LAZY way--I spray a silicone muffin pan with non-stick spray and place 1 egg white in each muffin cup and bake at 400 until done (about 15 minutes). I let them cool and freeze them in ziplocs. This is a great way to use up your eggs before they get old and saves me time in the morning. By the time I toast my multigrain thin (or you can use a light english muffin) the egg white are heated up in the microwave (about 30 seconds). I slap them on my toasted mutigrain thins with a slice of cheese and head out the door!Submitted by: WISHICOULDFLY
