High Protein Egg Bake

This high protein egg bake is perfect for a healthy weekend breakfast or as meal prep for the week. Eggs are full of good nutrients so I always like to combine whole eggs and egg whites to keep the good nutrients from the yolk, but also increase the protein by using some egg whites.

I have eggs for breakfast every morning, but I’ve been trying to figure how to save time in the morning and still have a hearty savory breakfast. I’m so excited to make my morning easier by having breakfast ready for the week.

Wanna know how much I love this recipe. I first shared this recipe in March 2021 and I’ve been making some version of an egg bake every week since then. I don’t always put sausage in it, but I’m always glad when I do!

I typically have mine with whole grain toast, chopped up inside a whole wheat tortilla with hot sauce, with a protein muffin or with a side a fruit.
