This got started when I found egg whites at Trader Joes in these little plastic containers. Albertson's had something like them but the TJ's containers are sturdy enough to use in the microwave. Pop the lid a little, put it in there for like 90 seconds and you have scrambled egg whites. OK, I've done the scrambled eggs in a cup thing before, but this was kind of cool. Except for, "How do I get them on two pieces of bread?" Hmmmm. I could mash them up, but that's messy. Then there's the whole cooking in plastic thing.
Frying was out. Either too much oil / grease or cooking on plastic, which I am trying to avoid in general as hard as it may be.
So what I've been fooling around with this week is using my own egg whites cooked in a Fiesta Ware bowl. Any flat bottomed bowl should work.
So here's what I am doing:
- I seperate the egg whites into a seperate bowl and beat them some
- Then I take some olive oil and put a very thin coating on the Fiesta Ware bowl.
- Pour the whites into the Fiesta Ware bowl
- Sprinkle some salt free seasoning blend on it
- Microwave at high for 80 seconds. I think I have a 700W oven. Results will vary depending on your wattage of course. Too much and they get rubbery. Too little and they are runny.
- Meanwhile over at the toaster I've toasted two slices of 100% whole wheat bread.
- Once the eggs are done the egg patty, as it where, should pop right out of the bowl onto one slice of bread.
- I put a tiny bit of mayo on the other slice, close it up, cut it in half, and eat!
'Course the mayo is BAD, yes I know. But, hey, I resisted the cheese!
Anyway, it's pretty tasty, filling and should only add up to about 210 calories and not too much fat.
Hope that helps!
