Eggs Are a great food and pretty easy to cook. Below are some fun and easy recipes to try. Eggs are readily available, relatively cheap, and full of healthy protein and amino acids. No matter what type of egg dish you cook, fresh eggs taste better and are easier to work with than older ones.
- 2 eggs
- 1 Tbsp skim milk
- 2 slices whole wheat toast
- 1 slice cheese
In a glass coffee mug or liquid measuring cup, crack 2 eggs and mix together.
Microwave for 1 minute. Watch eggs while cooking as they sometimes pop.
When eggs look solid (no runny egg mixture left on top of egg), flip cup and remove egg onto a slice of toast.
Top with cheese and the remaining piece of toast.
9 Essential Egg Recipes
- 1 pkg. of ready made pie crusts 2 crusts
- 1/2 lb. bacon or ham cooked and chopped
- 8 oz. grated or shredded Swiss cheese
- 3 C. half and half
- 1 C. milk
- 6 eggs
- 1 tsp. dry mustard
- 1 tsp. hot sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt.
- Dash of cayenne pepper
Line 2 pie pans with crusts. Layer meat then the cheese. Mix the remaining ingredients and
pour over meat and cheese. Bake at 350° for 45-55 min. If you make two at a time, then you
can keep the leftovers in the fridge. They are great when they are warmed up again. The baked
quiches will stay for about a week in the fridge.
Substitutions: Add sausage and cheddar instead of bacon and Swiss. Or, try the vegetarian
option and add 1 box of frozen spinach (thawed and drained) with 1/2 C. onion instead of the
meet and cheese.
