Share it:

My wife is an elementary school teacher, and also a pretty serious night-owl. Bad combination come 7:30am in the morning, when she often has to rush out the door. We rarely use the microwave for our own meals, but find it very helpful when pressed for time. Here, then, is her simple recipe for a high-protein, high-fiber start to the day.

"Very good and satisfying- especially for being so quick. Will definitely have this for breakfast before work- I'm a nurse and need something that will stay with me for a while. Thank you! Also the mustard tip was pretty good."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
2 whole Eggs; beaten
1 tablespoon Milk; Low fat
3 tablespoons Cheese; grated
salt and pepper; to taste
2 slices Whole wheat bread; toasted
OR -- English muffin
1 English Muffin; toasted

Original recipe makes 1

Servings  

Preparation

Toast the bread. In a small glass or ceramic dish, beat the eggs; add milk, cheese, salt and pepper. Stir.

Put dish in microwave on high for two or three minutes, depending on the strength of your microwave(see note below). Remove and sandwich between whole wheat toast (for lower-carb option) or English muffin. Skip the toast altogether and eat out of the bowl for no-carbs.

Or, grab a napkin or paper towel on the way out the door, and enjoy.

Notes

Start to finish -- 3 1/2 minutes, and I can testify that it can indeed be eaten in the car quite safely. Though I've never tried it, my wife claims it's completely satisfying, and that she's isn't hungry until noon or later if she has one of these in the morning.

Here are some things I've added to this meal which I think add a little more to this already good recipe. To cut down on cholesterol I only use one yoke and two egg whites, along with 1 Tablespoon of low fat milk, salt and pepper to taste. I do not add the cheese but it is optional. Then I add 1 Tablespoon sliced almonds to the egg mixture, stir and microwave the mixture for 2:30. Then I drop two slices of whole wheat bread. I pour one cup of cold low fat milk into a mug. When the toast is done, I add 1 Tablespoon of honey and 1/2 tablespoon butter to the toast. When the egg mixture is out of the microwave I put in the milk in for 1:20. Now you put the cooked eggs on the toast and add 3 sprigs fresh Dill. When the milk comes out, you stir in a little Nutmeg and Cinnamon. Enjoy. This takes longer than Heather's original 3 minute meal, but if you have the time, I think you will enjoy it as well.

Cheese gave it a nice flavor, as did the mustard. I think making it in a frying pan would give more control over the eggs.

Very good and satisfying- especially for being so quick. Will definitely have this for breakfast before work- I'm a nurse and need something that will stay with me for a while. Thank you! Also the mustard tip was pretty good.

This is a great quick, easy, nutritous start to a busy day. I did add a bit of mustard for extra taste.

Breakfast for my child, on a school day, in less than 5 minutes! Super!
