Egg White Muffins

Egg White Muffins

Pretty, delicious egg white muffins make a gorgeous brunch dish, or a quick weekday breakfast – you can make them in advance and refrigerate. They really puff up in the oven, like a soufflé, then slightly deflate as they cool. I generally believe in using the whole egg (yolks are very healthy), so I tend to make this dish only when I make something that requires yolks and leaves me with leftover egg whites, such as zabaglione.
