High Protein Egg, Yam & Cheese Breakfast


Ingredients for 1 serving or 12oz jar:

  • 2 eggs
  • 3 egg whites
  • 100g grated yam (or sweet potato)
  • 1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 1/8 cup (or 2 tablespoons) diced red onion
  • 1/3 cup shredded spinach
  • 1/4 cup reduced fat shredded parmesan (optional)
  • Seasonings:
    • 1 ½ teaspoon herb seasoning
    • pinch of sea salt


Step 1

Peel then grate the yam into a bowl and set it aside.

Step 2

In a separate bowl, beat eggs & egg whites with herb seasoning.

Step 3

Add bell pepper, red onion, spinach and a little parmesan (if desired) to the eggs. Mix together.

Step 4

Spray a hermetic jar (at least 12oz in size) with olive oil then add the grated yam. Pat it down so it covers the bottom part of the jar.

Step 5

Pour in the egg and veggie mixture, then place it on a baking sheet.

Step 6

Top it off with a few sprinkles of parmesan (as garnish), then bake in the oven for about 30 minutes at 375F.
