Participating in the American Egg Board challenge of eating eggs every day for ten days as a part of a balanced routine has been a big nonevent even though we travel a lot. Eggs are on the menu everywhere, in fact, the hotel we just checked out of managed to shape scrambled eggs like a dinosaur. They are a regular part of our breakfast routine.
A recipe for a microwave egg puzzle was featured last week, so here’s another idea using more or less the same ingredients. This time we had whole wheat flatbread in the house, and I added tomato and avocado for color and nutrition. It so easy:
Changing the presentation keeps kids eating with interest and this recipe also just takes a few minutes to assemble and cook, making it ideal for busy school mornings. Microwaving eggs is a discovery for me, though you could bake them ahead or hard-boil them. Visit IncredibleEgg.org for more kid-friendly breakfast recipes, tips and more.
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 tbsp. milk
- 2 tbsp. fully-cooked breakfast sausage crumbles or 1 fully-cooked breakfast sausage link or patty, chopped
- 1 round flatbread (6-inch diameter)
- 2 tbsp. finely shredded Cheddar cheese
- BEAT egg and milk in 2-cup cereal bowl until blended. ADD sausage.
- MICROWAVE on HIGH 30 seconds; push cooked edges toward center. MICROWAVE until egg is almost set, about 15 to 45 seconds longer.
- ADD toppings such as tomato and avocado.
- CUT egg into 4 or 5 pieces; arrange on flatbread. TOP with cheese. MICROWAVE an additional 10 to 15 seconds to melt cheese. SERVE immediately.
Though the eggs in our local stores are more expensive, the average cost per egg is about 15 cents, making the cost estimate for this recipe about $1.99. That’s a deal. To be honest, I don’t think too much about cost when it comes to eggs. Because they are filled with essential vitamins, minerals and six grams of high-quality protein, we all have more energy when we eat them.
Eggs provide a number of excellent dietary benefits, can be easily cooked in a variety of ways, and are very cost effective. The American Egg Board highlights the many benefits of eating eggs in addition to providing tips and delicious recipes. For more information, please visit IncredibleEgg.org.
