These little guys are light, low carb, and high protein! You can make a batch of them, refrigerate and have a quick and healthy breakfast on a work day! Or prepare them one day and bake them the next. You can get creative and add ingredients that you like. You can even use less of the light ingredients if that's what you like. If you would like to make this recipe even lighter, use 5 whole eggs and 7 egg whites, then omit the ham slices or turkey sausage and add more veggies.
