Single Serving Crustless Egg Muffin

 

 

Some mornings are just busier than others. Thursdays are my day of the week I kind of dread a little, don’t tell my kids!

We have to be up and out the door by 8 a.m. I’m a  home school mom so I don’t usually have to get up and out the door like most people have to do to get out to work and bring kids to school.  I sometimes feel very pathetic that I can’t seem to get it together to be honest.

I am also not a morning person, but then having to get all 3 up and out with a packed car of instruments, lunch and school work, is quite challenging. I usually try to be prepared for Thursday, but this Thursday just kind of creeped up on me. Can you relate?

I often have Portion Sized Baked Oatmeal thawed out or Bacon, Spinach Quiche cups ready to warm for these busy mornings. BUT we ate my freezer reserve and I have not stocked up.

The oldest and I love eggs. So because this week I committed to myself to watch my carbohydrate intake since I was feeling sluggish, I wanted to eat some protein and I don’t have much time. This recipe is the perfect fix for me!

I bet many of you may already be doing this, but I thought maybe some of you don’t know about the quickest egg recipe on the planet! I share in hopes you won’t decide to skip a healthy breakfast because you think you don’t have the time. I also share this so you won’t grab a doughnut when you order your coffee, just saying, still love me?

Ingredients
  • 3 egg whites or 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp cream or milk
  • 1 tbsp shredded cheese of your choice
  • ½ scallion chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • nonstick cooking spray
Instructions
  1. Spray a small dish with nonstick cooking spray. I used custard ramekins.
  2. Whisk the egg and cream in the dish.
  3. Add cheese and scallion.
  4. Microwave for 55 -60 seconds.
  5. I have a egg setting for scrambled eggs I use. Every microwave is different, always try less time because you can always cook it a bit longer. Too long and you’ll have a big mess! I recommend covering loosely with a paper towel

    For a few months now we have been hung up on protein shakes with frozen bananas and strawberries. Oh, my, it is so satisfying to the body. Gives me protein and sweetness for my sweet tooth. Low in points also.

  2. This is a very healthy hot breakfast! I have done this before but to me it just doesn’t taste as good as cooked on stovetop, which also is very quick. I just crack the eggs in and flip, then add cheese and green onions or onion powder if I don’t have any with a bit of garlic powder and salt – almost as quick! But for those who don’t want the extra pan to clean this is a great idea.

  3. What a healthy breakfast indeed! Us mothers need to remember to take care of ourselves too, eh? My favorite breakfast during the week is poached eggs with a side of oatmeal. On the weekends, I am all about homemade pancakes!

    I can’t wait to make this recipe, been craving for something different this week. I find that i’m stuck on making the same thing, and working 12 hour days don’t help. So these burgers would be great to freeze also. Can’t wait to make them . Thank you!!!
