1 cup egg whites
4 large eggs
1 cup gruyere or Swiss, shredded
1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1 tbsp flour (any kind you like)
2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped (or 1/2 tsp dried)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

- Once the veggie mixture is cooled, add to the mixing bowl with the egg mixture and stir with a spatula until all ingredients are well blended.
- Spoon the egg mixture into each of the 12 muffin cups.
- Place in oven and cook for approximately 15 minutes, or until cooked through and browned on top. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
