Sounds like a great way to start the day.

I just looked up the differences between butter and grapeseed oil. Aside from the cholesterol, I save one calorie if I use butter and I won't have to salt my egg. So that's 299 calories, not 300

You are offering some great tip ideas for breakfast for me too! Thanks!! Egg yolks give me an awful gut ache but I do love egg whites. I have been trying to keep my meals around 300 calories.

This morning I had a 1/2 pkg. of nature valley granila bars & 1/2 container of raspberry, low fat chobani greek yogurt, & a decaf. coffee with cream. I am suprised how it filled me up. Off to the pool now.

2 eggs, scrambled, no milk/cream added, but I did add 1 jalapeno pepper, diced.

I actually had the chance to make breakfast this morning. Bacon first, though for some reason the griddle smoked me out of the kitchen. I didn't do the egg on the griddle in the bacon fat because of the smoke, so I just did those in a pan with butter. Home made bread for toast.

We had the maple wood smoked bacon this morning.

This is how my version of the recipe turned out. It was very good.
