breakfast ideas

I am looking for breakfast ideas as I am sick of eggs. I am trying to eat LC/Lower fat/ Low cal over the next few months. Also I am avoiding processed foods. Any ideas?

I hear ya! Eggs get boring after awhile. On the S4L plan, I make blueberry muffins from their high protein oatmeal. 3 muffins are allowed and they are great! You could probably use a CarbSense mix too. Cottage cheese and fresh berries is also one of my favorites. And remember if you can eat eggs for breakfast, lunch and dinner: who says you can't eat protein or veggies the same way. Mix it up. Veggie quiche is another one of my goodies. Pour them in muffin tins for individual portions.

I've been rolling up sliced ham and cheese and grilling it on the stovetop with some pam until the cheese melts.

This is an appetizer recipe from Pampered Chef but sometimes I have a couple of these for breakfast. According to my MasterCook they have 1.9 gms protein and 0.5 gms carbs per bite.

Salsa Bites

8 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1/3 cup thick and chunky salsa
2 large eggs -- lightly beaten
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons pitted ripe olives -- chopped
1 tablespoon green onion -- chopped
1 clove garlic
Additional salsa for topping -- optional

Preheat oven 350°

In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Blend in salsa
& eggs. Stir in cheddar cheese, olives, onion & garlic. Lightly
spray 24 mini-muffin cups with vegetable oil spray. Fill to the top
with the cream cheese mixture. Bake 15-18 minutes or until
centers are set. Remove from oven; cool in pan 5 minutes. Remove
from pan & finish cooling on a wire rack. Top with additional
salsa just before serving, if desired.

I add a bit of ground red pepper for a little more spice. Then topped with a little sour cream and salsa.

I love breakfast -- it's my favorite meal of the day. Here's what I've had so far this week:
Sunday: Pumpkin custard and ham
Monday: LC waffles (made Sat. and frozen), sausage and blueberry sauce
Tuesday: eggs scrambled w/peppers, onions & ham w/cheese and a CQ biscuit
Wednesday: fried cheese & egg, bacon and raspberries
Thursday: lc pancakes, homemade SF syrup and bacon

I work and have to get two sleepy-headed kids ready for school in the morning and I can throw these together in fifteen minutes or less, especially if you cook things ahead and freeze them.

CARBQUIK WAFFLES

1 cup Carbquik
1/2 Tbs baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup cream
1/2 cup water
2 Tbs DaVinci Syrup (caramel, spice, vanilla are all good)

Mix well and pour a generous 1/4 cup batter into waffle iron. (I have the best results if my waffle iron is set on dark, but individual irons vary). Makes 6 waffles, 3 carbs each, 147 calories, 5.5 g protein.

They can be frozen and reheated in the toaster set on the lowest setting.
This is my variation on a wonderful recipe posted here by someone else and I'm sorry, I can't remember who. Her recipe had pecans in it and was topped with DaVinci Syrup. It's much, much better than the one on the Carbquik box.

I eat anything for breakfast. For example, this AM I had chicken salad. I'm not one for your "traditional" breakfast foods. I can eat scrambled eggs for dinner.

Cats, adding the protein powder to a mock danish sounds like a great idea, does it take the eggy taste away?? I got to find my mock danish recipe and try this, thanks

Plain eggs do become monotonous but I always return to them, putting in enough vegetables so they no longer taste like eggs. Fresh mushrooms and different cheeses in scrambled are my favs. The hot flax cereals are great on cold mornings also. Muffins and pancakes don't stay the hunger for me.

I add cottage cheese to scrambled eggs. It changes the flavor of them.

I really like adding hot pepper cheese or pepper jack cheese to them and then topping them with picante sauce.
