A bite sized, nutrient-dense snack that is perfect for tailgating!


1 Tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup diced yellow onion
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
2 eggs, lightly beaten

1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon ground black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a small skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes or until onion becomes translucent. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Set aside.
