Ingredients
  • 4 eggs, separated
  • 65 g Chorizo
  • 2 Tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 2 Tbsp chopped scallions
  • 43 g finely grated cheese
Instructions
  1. Remove the chorizo from the casing and cook thoroughly. It was such a small amount and I was cooking other stuff for the blog on the stove at the time (cauliflower tater tots! What?!? Yeah, that’s right.) and I didn’t want to dirty a pan for that little so I cooked the chorizo in the microwave for 2 minutes and it worked perfectly. I drained out the fat and set the sausage aside.

  2. Meanwhile, beat the 4 egg whites until stiff. Then fold in the chorizo, cheese, scallions, and cilantro until mixed. Add a pinch of salt and pepper.

  3. On a greased cookie sheet, place four spoonfuls of the egg white mixture at least 2 inches apart. Make a slight well in the center and gently place an egg yolk in each one.

  4. Bake in a preheated 375 degree (F) oven for about 6 minutes. Keep an eye on it though, you definitely don’t want to overcook these and miss out on that fabulous runny yolk!

  5. Garnish with avocado slices and fresh cilantro.
