More Egg White Breakfast Ideas

A while back I shared a recipe for a quick egg white breakfast made in the microwave.  I love these things!  Quick, easy, versatile, healthy, filling...all good things.  I've snapped a couple of photos of other variations so I thought I should be a good blogger and share.

Here's the original made with turkey pepperoni and cheese...
I call both of these "salsa egg whites" but make them two different ways.  Here's the first...

A cup of egg whites, 2 TBSP fresh salsa, 1 TBSP low fat grated cheese; microwave 1 1/2-2 minutes; top with taco sauce.

For the second version...

A cup of egg whites and 1 sandwich slice low fat cheddar torn in to small pieces microwaved 1 1/2-2 minutes.  Top with 2 TBSP fresh salsa and freshly ground black pepper.

Don't forget to use a bowl/dish large enough to allow for the puffing that occurs during cooking (I use a glass prep bowl) and do keep an eye on it but don't panic when you see it puff up.  Spray the bowl with cooking spray before adding the ingredients.

You'll be surprised how filling these are and how well they "stick" with you through the morning.

Aloha and welcome to all the new readers of the blog-glad to have you and would love to hear from you!

What are you eating for breakfast these days?
