Yellow Hockey Pucks!

Or, "portable eggs " (which sounds a lot better.)

For an on-the-go protein, I've started making "yellow hockey pucks."

  • Heat oven to 350degrees.
  • Lightly oil a 12-cup muffin tin.
  • in the blender put 16oz of eggbeaters, plus four egg whites (or add a yolk or two if you wish)
  • add a dash of salt. Blend.
  • in the bottom of each muffin cup, put a spoonfull of:
  • canned chopped green chilis, or
  • minced green onion, or
  • sauted white onion or mixed veggies, or
  • whatever you want, or
  • nothing
  • Fill each muffin cup (probably to the brim) with egg mixture
  • Bake for about 35 minutes.
  • Take out, and cool on racks.

These are interesting to watch cooking: at about 20 minutes they look like cups of liquid egg. At about 30 minutes they've puffed up like a souffle. They will deflate as soon as they cool.

They keep well in the fridge for a week, so I make two pans on the weekend (24 hockey pucks) and have 6-8 proteins available for the week.

So there you have yellow protein hockey pucks. I eat 3 for a protein, sometimes 4. This is definitely an on-the-go protein, paired with a carb muffin.

Bon appetit!

Wow, these look great! And a nice change from the microwaved egg whites at work! Thanks for the suggestion!
