6 egg, scrambled
6 slices bacon, cooked (or ham)
6 (1 ounce) slices cheddar cheese
Separate the eggs (save the yolks for a different recipe...creme brule???), and whip the whites for a few minutes until VERY stiff. Slowly fold in the whey protein and onion powder if using. Then slowly fold in the cream cheese into the whites (making sure the whites don't fall). Grease a cookie sheet very well. Spoon the mixture onto the pan making 6 large molds. Place a scrambled egg, cheese and chopped ham or bacon on each mold. Top with additional egg white batter and smooth the top with a spatula. Bake at 375 degrees F for 25 minutes until lightly browned. Enjoy! Makes 6 LARGE servings.
