Ground Turkey and Egg White Bake

I’ve been trying to make better food choices lately and breakfast is always hard for me. I wake up, get ready for work and walk out the door.  Now, if you’re anything like me you stop to get coffee and grab something fast. Which isn’t always a bad thing… but I tend to lean towards the breakfast options with a ton of carbs. So, for me, I need to prep my breakfast otherwise I feel tired and sluggish by 10 A.M..

“Egg Bakes” are a great thing.  Typically a one pan (or casserole dish) meal and they make 4-5 days worth of breakfast which helps me stay on track for the week.

Because I’ve been trying to eat better I used ground turkey, egg whites and veggies.  I picked up egg whites that come in a carton which helped me save on wasting the yolks.
