What to add to Eggs???
So I eat 1cup of Rolled Oats and 8 Eggwhite/2 Yolks every morning. I prepare both in the Microwave, because I have a pretty hectic and early morning.
I usually put some Salt Free Ketchup onto the eggs, but I don't really want to do this anymore. Any ideas of what can be added easily to add some flavor?
The only think i have some up with so far is salsa...

Tabasco, this one mexican hot sauce called Tamazula ain't bad either. I ran out of Tostito's salsa so now I'm usin La Victoria's taco sauce, not bad at all.
EDIT: If you're not too worried about it, sour cream and eggs is sexy.

Cook some peppers, mushrooms, and/or onions into it
If you're looking for some extra protein, some diced ham makes for a stellar omlette.
Tabasco sauce makes ANYTHING taste good.

more along the lines of tobasco and salsa...
you know, something that can be added quickly and doesn't have to be cooked...

i think skim cheese makes eggs taste a bit better... melt it in with the eggs while they cook
also, i occasionally use sugar free maple syrup on my eggs and its almost like im eating french toast (without the bread lol)
or maybe try subbing out the oats for some whole wheat toast and slap the eggs between the toast for a sandwich... any little difference is a welcome change of taste

You can always man up and shotgun it all in a glass, Rocky Balboa style.

I won't eat any kind of processed bread, whole wheat or otherwise...
Thanks for the tips though guys...gives me some ideas...i'll let yall know what i pick up at the market.

PI, pick up some Kraft fat-free shredded cheese. It's not processed, low sodium, no fat, and an extra 9 grams of protein per 1/4 cup serving. Throw some salsa, with a touch of Frank's (also low-sodium) in with the cheese and it's really good.

mullet...that **** it too complicated...i'm all about the easy meals...
I'll check out that kraft cheese though...

I love dill on my eggs, i eat popcorn seasoning like catnip for humans.

I see, I didn't know what you meant by franks...
this sounds like a great plan...i'll try it in the am.
04-26-2007, 06:42 PM
You'll like it. It's honestly the only reason I can handle eggs still. I've ate the same breakfast for three years straight, and have had to get pretty creative with variations.

You can always try what the Coneheads suggested on the parody of Family Feud.......

Ahh.. you gotta love eggs and their simplicity.. though they do taste odd after you eat them for so long.. I use 9 whites/1 yolk due to high cholesterol issues, but nonetheless, I have some creative ideas for you to try, although they sound odd at first lol:
Already mentioned but, green taco sauce from La Victoria is superb!
Strawberry jelly... believe it or not is awesome with eggs. (sugar free of course)
Cheese was also mentioned, but try using mozerella. (mmm)
And my favorite for eggs, PEPPER! lol, I just like black pepper, a lot. Seems to make things taste much better. and No I do not smoke.. lol

Mullet...Franks Red Hot...
PERFECT replacement for Ketchup...
I hate the sodium content but it beats the High Frustose Corn Syrup any day of the week....
04-27-2007, 11:35 AM
good choice with the red hot, it works great for making anything taste better...
04-27-2007, 11:37 AM
I buy it in gallon jugs from Sam's Club
06-27-2007, 11:51 PM
Just add a few "HOT" jalepenos for some extra spice! Always works for me. If thats too hot, just add the juice from the jar.

I cook my eggs in the microwave about 10 minutes before work at work. I use ham, turkey, salt, and pepper. Rost beef is ok. One time i even mixed in some imitation crabmeat! Salsa is definitely always a good quickie!

salt free lemon pepper, and garlic are good and easy. Anything chipoltle. Ms. Dash makes a really good seasoning round up based on chipoltle. I don't like the reagular Ms. Dash.
If your going with cheese, try putting some Cayanne and Chili powders on. It it's it a real southwestern spice.
For Tobasco bottles aren't big enough. I like a lot of it, and I can go through a big bottle easily with in a week and it's too damn expensive to buy two bottles a week.
just my 2 cents.

I try to eat them plain. With the way my stomach bothers me I have to eat a lot of bland stuff. If your cook them right they will taste pretty good. Hard Boiled, just don't over-cook them. The yolk should be bright yellow, no grey on the outside, that means it is over-cooked, and makes them stink to high heaven.
07-10-2007, 11:50 PM
so... this may be dumb, but how long do you nuke the eggs for?? i've never cooked eggs in the microwave... are they still decent tasting?? would be a great time-saver.
also, there's a brand of hot sauce called chalula (sold @ walmart and i think most grocery stores)... it's amazing
07-11-2007, 06:54 AM
I'll try that hot sauce out...thanks.
I eat 9 whites and 1 yolk and i basically nuke them on high for 2 minutes, then stir, then another 2 minutes, then stir, then another 2 minutes and you're ready to go.
While they're cooking I'm eating my oats so it ends up being the biggest time saver in the am.

eggs in the micro.....always thought of it thanks for the tip.
cheese n pepper always works for me.

This recipe takes a little time to make, but it is well worth it and it makes enough to last 6 to 8 days - just be sure to keep it refigerated.
Spinach & Egg Bake
6 whole eggs and 6 egg whites
2 bags spinach or 4 bundles (or substituted 2 cups broccoli florettes, or combine broccoli & cauliflower and carrots)
3 tomatoes, chopped (or use canned, diced tomatoes)
4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lg onion, chopped
˝ cup goat feta cheese, crumbled (or shredded cheddar depending on veggies)
1 tblsp extra virgin olive oil (I use Macadamia nut oil)
2 cups club soda
sea salt & coarse black pepper to taste
1 tsp hot chilies or ˝ tsp nutmeg (optional)
2 cups shrimp, prawns, white fish, salmon, scallops, chicken or turkey
Grease 8X14 (lasagne) baking dish. In a skillet, add oil and lightly sauté onion, mushrooms, peppers and garlic. Wash spinach (if by the bunch), add to steamer, bring to boil and turn heat off, not lifting the lid. Let sit approximately 10 minutes. (If using broccoli, etc, don’t steam, add raw). In large bowl, break eggs and adding whites, whip with fork. Add club soda, salt and pepper chillies, or nutmeg. Stir and add to greased baking dish. Add spinach (or broc, cauli, carrots), tomatoes, cheese and protein. Top w/ parmesan cheese and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Makes 6 to 8 servings.

Hey how do the eggs taste from the micro? Do you just nuke it in a regular bowl? Im sick of cleaning the pan, you know what I mean.
07-11-2007, 03:21 PM
I use a microwave safe tupperware...
They taste fine, not quite as good, but good enough. It's more of a time saver then anything.
