Servings 6 egg bites

Ingredients  

  • 4 large eggs
  • 12 tbsp egg whites, (about 6 egg whites)
  • 1 1/2 cups crumbled goat cheese
  • 1 1/3 cups low fat, small curd cottage cheese, (300 grams)
  • 6 slices turkey bacon, cooked
  • kosher salt
  • freshly cracked black pepper

Instructions 

  • Preheat water bath using immersion circulator to 185 degrees F.
  • While it's preheating, whisk together eggs, egg whites, and cottage cheese until completely smooth.
  • Pour mixture evenly between 6 1/2 pint sized jars or small Weck jars. To each jar, add: 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese, 1 crumbled slice of turkey bacon, 1/4 tsp kosher salt, and 1/4 tsp freshly cracked black pepper. Stir contents of each jar to evenly distribute.
  • If using canning jars (not Weck jars), add undamaged lids to jars and screw to just finger tip tight, meaning you only tighten with the tips of your fingers. You want air to be able to escape the jars while cooking to prevent them from cracking.
  • Carefully drop the jars into the preheated water bath using silicone oven mitts or jar lifter. Cook for 30 minutes.
  • Remove jars from water bath and let cool on the counter for about 10 minutes. Serve or refrigerate.
  • To reheat, remove lid and microwave at 70% power for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Notes

Calories are based on Trader Joe's goat cheese, Nancy's Low Fat Probiotic Cottage Cheese, and uncured turkey bacon.
Play with the add ins but keep the base the same for some other variations on high protein, low fat egg bites!
