I have always been a fried egg eater. Knowing fried is not good I tried to poach some eggs and I discovered that poached is not only better for you but BETTER! I don't have to try to flip it without breaking the yoke, there are no gross hard yucky edges and it is easier to tell when it is done. Also, I get lots of protein without the added fat. My new favorite egg! 334
To make a poached egg (or two!) just boil enough water to cover the egg and slide the egg into the boiling water. (I have found a skillet works best but small saucepans work too) Give it about 3 minutes (longer if you like the yolk hard) and your egg is poached and ready to eat.
At only 90 calories, hard boiled eggs are a great way to eat healthy! two for breakfast and you should be able to keep going until lunch. Low carb, nutrient rich and ready when you are! A few hard boiled eggs are always good to keep around. Happy Eating!
Mix your eggs in a bowl and set aside. Saute any veggies (onions, mushrooms, etc.,) set aside. Using the bands from canning jar lids, place top side down on a warm skillet. After the bands have warmed up, spray pan and inside of bands down with Pam. Place 1-2 Tablespoons of veggies in each band. Pour enough egg over the top to almost fill the band (about 1/4 c. or 4 Tablesppons). Using a fork, move the veggies around a little. (This will help keep the veggies attached.)
After the egg has cooked, gently flip the egg & ban over & cook a little longer. When the eggs are complete, using the tines from a fork, lift the bands off the eggs & remove from heat. Now your eggs are ready to be enjoyed on top of an english muffin! great for meal planning!
