Tasty Tuesdays : Breakfast Cupcake

I call this my breakfast cupcake.  Let's face it, it sounds better then egg white muffin.  This is great for anyone that is busy and would like something healthy.  Each "Cupcake" as prepared is 75 calories.
what you will need:

cupcake tin
cooking spray
bell pepper
egg whites ( i use 100% egg whites from a carton)
cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Lightly spray cupcake tin with cooking spray

pour 1/4 cup (4 tbsp) of egg whites into each cupcake cup

chop mushrooms
place 1 tbsp in each cup

repeat with bell peppers
1 tbsp in each cup

 dice onion
place 1 tsp in each cup

when oven is done being preheated.  place in oven for 40 minutes.

Pop out of cupcake tin.  
 Looks ugly... but we will cover it up  :)

 Ice your "cupcake" with 2 teaspoons of salsa

no cupcake is complete without sprinkles!
Top with 1 tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese.

I make a couple at once to last me a week.  refrigerate the left overs.  To reheat, wrap a damp paper towel around cupcake and pop it in the microwave for about a minute.
