9 eggs

1/2 cup spinach, chopped

1/4 cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped

1/2 cup nonfat cottage cheese

1/2 tsp kosher salt


INSTRUCTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350F

In greased muffin pan, evenly distribute spinach, tomatoes, and feta.

Tip: In the picture, a metal muffin tin was used, but admittedly even with greasing it the eggs still stuck a bit on the bottom. A silicone pan (you can find on Amazon) was tried as well and it was completely non-stick so if you do make these, pick one of those up!

Rest Day Recipe

Garlic Butter Chicken Meatballs with Cauliflower Rice

1 lb (450g) ground chicken (or turkey)

1/2 cup shredded cheese of your choice (mozzarella, cheddar, provolone…)

4 cloves garlic, grated + 2 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/2 teaspoon red crushed chili pepper flakes, optional

1 crumbled bouillon cube, optional

1/2 cup chicken stock

Salt and fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

1/2 cup fresh chopped parsley (or cilantro)

3 tablespoons butter, divided

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1 tablespoon hot sauce of your choice (we used Sriracha)

1 medium cauliflower head, grated (or a packet of riced cauliflower)


DIRECTIONS

1. To make the chicken meatballs meal prep: Make cauliflower rice with a large grater or food processor. Transfer to a shallow plate with 1/2 cup water and cook covered in the microwave for 4 minutes.

2. In the meantime, in a large bowl, combine ground chicken, cheese, grated garlic, Italian seasoning, crumbled bouillon cube, red chili pepper flakes, chopped cilantro, and black pepper. Mix well with your hands or fork and form medium balls. Arrange on a plate and set aside.

3. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Cook the chicken meatballs for 8 – 10 minutes on all sides, until browned and cooked through. While cooking, baste the meatballs with the mix of butter and juices. Remove to a clean plate and set aside.

4. In the same skillet melt remaining tablespoon butter; then add lemon juice, chicken stock, hot sauce, minced garlic, parsley and red pepper flakes (if you want). Cook for 3 or 4 minutes, stirring regularly until the sauce has reduced a bit. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and garnish with more cilantro or parsley if you like. 4 servings
