Thursday Recipe - Scrambled Eggs Super-dee-Dooper-dee-Hooper
I've found eating protein for breakfast helps me feel better during the day. Since one of my goals for 2015 is to eat healthier so I can feel better, I'm working on breakfast first. Skip the sugary cereals and pastries, cut back on the carbs in general, beef up on the protein and veggies and fiber.
I also ran across a life hack that suggested cooking scrambled eggs/omelets in your waffle iron. I haven't been brave enough to try it yet. If anyone does, please let me know how big of a mess it made and how well it worked.
Scrambled Eggs Super
For one serving:
2 T. milk
1/2 c. assorted mix-ins
1/4 t. salt
pinch of black pepper
2 T. grated cheese
Using a non-stick frying pan, spray it lightly with cooking spray. Put over medium heat and let it get hot while you mix up the eggs.
Beat eggs and milk until smooth. Add mix-ins, salt, and pepper. Stir until mixed. Pour into hot pan. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, until it starts to set up around the edges. Stir gently with a spatula. Continue to cook until eggs are set and as dry as you prefer. Sprinkle with cheese. Eat as soon as the cheese melts.
