Egg White Souffle Dinner Cakes – For 1

We all have those nights… regardless of whether we live with a roommate, a significant other, our parents, siblings.. where we are on our own for dinner.

In all honesty – these are some of my favorite nights – when I get to do my own thing – and can eat things that I like – and it doesn’t necessarily have to appeal to the tastebuds of the above mentioned individuals.

What can be difficult though – is making a dinner – with a single portion (or close to it)

Don’t get me wrong – I LOVE leftovers.  But 3-5 servings of leftovers can be a little much.

With many recipes, I also don’t feel like putting in all the work of making a full fledged meal.. for just me.. the one and only.

However, the Egg White Souffle Dinner Cake that I am about to show you – is an exception.  To be quite honest – I enjoy making it just for one person – and probably would not be a fan of making  more servings.

These “cakes” are a great texture.  Below, I’ve chose my own add-ins – but you can really through in anything you like!  Different veggies, cheeses.. even a protein if the eggs don’t do enough for ya!

Egg White Souffle Dinner Cakes for One

Ingredients

  • 3 Egg Whites
  • 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
  • 3 tbps chopped onions
  • 4 stewed tomato halves (leftover from my Paella)
  • Dash of Garlic Powder
  • Dash of Pepper
  • Dash of Chili Powder

Preparation

  • Preheat Oven to 365* (I like weird numbers)
  • Cook up your spinach in a small skillet – using a dash of oil if you would like.  Cook until the spinach has dramatically decreased in size.

Before Cooking...

Spinach Shrinkage

  • Add onions and tomatoes to spinach – and cook for 2-3 more minutes. Remove from heat.


  • Separate your egg whites and put them into a bowl. Add garlic powder, pepper, and chili powder


  • Using a hand mixer, beat your eggs whites until they are fluffy.

The will go from this…

To this.. In about 5-6 minutes of consistent beating.

When your whites have reached their optimal consistency, you should be able to make peaks when you remove the mixing blades.. like so:

  • Fold in your veggies


  • SPRAY A MUFFIN PAN WITH NON-STICK… (Super duper important that you do this adequately!)
  • Spoon mixture into 3-6 muffins – depending on the size that you would like your little cakes.


  • Bake for 13-15 minutes – until tops are nice a browned

It is amazing how much food you can create from 3 little egg whites!  They become so voluminous through the beating!

This meal is pretty quick and easy – and it doesn’t require a whole lot of ingredients.  Basically – if you have egg whites and random veggies/cheeses – you are all set!
