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.
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.
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.
