Eggs, Eggs, Eggs

I try to eat eggs alot since it's cheap and hardly any carbs, but I get sick of just the same old same old so I thought maybe we could do a thread about how you cook your eggs, different styles, things you add, that sort of thing.

I'll start off.

My current favorite egg dish is an omlet, I add in pepperoni slices, black olives, pepper jack cheese, colby cheese, then I sprinkle some regular sharp chedder over the finished omlet and let it melt a bit. It's very yummy and filling.

I also like to put ham cubes in omlets but they're a bit more higher in carbs so I try to use other things.

What recipes do you try? Thanks!

This isn't much of a recipe but I've been making these a lot lately. I just crack two eggs into some melted butter in a small nonstick skillet and scramble them up with a spatula (season eggs with salt). While they're starting to cook, I take one wedge of Laughing Cow French Onion flavored cheese and cut it into little bits and add them to the eggs. I quickly stir up the eggs and cheese and cook them just until they're softly set. When you take a bite and get one of those soft bits of cheese, it's so yummy.

Me too, not really a recipe but I have been frying a couple eggs, and while they are frying, I put a couple thin slices of deli roast beef in the pan, cook about 30 secs, flip, top with muenster cheese. I put one egg on a plate, then the rb/cheese, then the other egg. Cut it in to pieces - yum!!

Try Scotch eggs. Hardboil 5 or 6 eggs, get a tube or bulk pack of sausage, 12 to 16 oz. (I like the spicy kind but whatever flavor you like!) and divide into however many eggs you're doing. (12 oz does 5 eggs, 16 oz. at least 6 eggs.) Roll sausage into a ball, flatten, and wrap around the HB egg. Roll it in your hands to get it as evenly-covered as possible. Then you can bake at 350* for about 20 minutes as-is, OR roll them in some green-can kind of Parm cheese first and then bake. Either way they're really good, portable, great for breakfast, snack, light lunch or whatever!

I also like to take leftover chile verde, heat it up in a nonstick skillet, pour in some beaten eggs and scramble til done to your liking. Sprinkle some grated cheese on top.

I really want to try Linda Sue's idea with the Laughing Cow French Onion cheese - I think I would love that. My current favorite way to have scrambled eggs is to add about 1 ounce of cream cheese cut into bits and cook it the way Linda Sue mentions. I just think the Laughing Cow French Onion cheese would give it even more flavor.

scrambled eggs are also really good with crumbled feta cheese. You don't really taste the feta is just gives it a good flavor and salty!!

Not sure were your at on "WOE" but my all time favorite way to eat my
scramblers (eat them for dinner every nite) I love Chinese food but of course stear clear of it. Anyways I take some angel hair cabbabe and some asparagus (closet I can find to peas that taste like peas) cut the aspg. up in smallish nibs and throw it in my eggs. A bit of low Sodium Soy and all I can say is YUM, kinda like Egg Foo Young, you could also add in some meat, I just prefer the veggies

I just experimented this morning because I was craving pumpkin, so I took
2TBLS. cream cheese softened it in the pan, added 2 eggs, 2TBLS canned pumpkin, 2 packets splenda, scrambled it all up then added a pinch of cinnamon, pinch nutmeg, pinch of cloves. tasted great! I think I will make this when I'm feeling the need for a sweet autumny breakfast You could add a touch of sf maple syrup to the top.

Hey there,

I eat eggs anyway I can think of which will be a little more creative than the last time I ate eggs....lol

But, I do have one HUGE question to you: How in the world did you lose 51 lbs since 7-31-07. That's only about 9 or 10 weeks ! I am sooooooo envious !

Congratulations to you ! Do you mind sharing your specific WOE ? Has it just been LC, or Atkins, or maybe a mixture of several different plans ? What has worked the best for you ? I am just so impressed and would love to hear your story !

Best of luck for continued success and thanks for sharing !

I have a journal on the journals board if you want to read it, it's called A Slimmer Best Man In December.

Well as far as the weight loss goes, I'm a guy, and I'm told they shrink faster, but also I do alot of exercise and say on induction, only 20carbs per day. The first month I drank only water and lots of it. I also walk three miles a day and swim for thirty minutes every morning.

As far as what I eat, I try to stay as low in carbs as possible, so alot of eggs, chicken, beef, that sort of thing. I now drink diet soda, but in moderation.

It's kind of odd to hear people shocked that I've lost all this weight in such a short time because to me it feels very slow.

I started at 300lbs, maybe a bit over that, I never weighed for months for fear of what it would say. I started walking back in July and then restarted on Atkins at the end of the month. I was a size 40W and sometimes 42W, now I wear a comfortable 36W and I went from XX-Large and XXX-Large shirts to an X-Large shirt which is huge for me. It's been a real transformation and the best part is that people are noticing this time.

I was on Atkins about four years ago, lost sixty pounds in about four months and nobody noticed much and it made me upset and thus I went off and gained back all sixty, plus twenty more pounds.

The secret to great scrambled eggs is sour cream. Add some of it to the eggs whenever you are going to beat the eggs. It makes the eggs light and soft. Just a little bit of sour cream makes all the difference. Sometimes I also add shredded cheddar cheese to the mixture.

I do all kinds of things with eggs:

Egg Drop Soup : Canned chicken broth, an egg stirred up and then stirred into the boiling broth - top with a few chives and some white or black pepper - YUM.

Mexican Eggs: Left over taco meat (about 2g-3g carbs per serving) mixed in with scrambled eggs - top with shredded cheese, sour cream and a bit of salsa. You won't believe how good this is. Sometimes, if I know my carbs will be low the rest of the day, I'll eat this tucked inside a low carb tortilla.

Sensational Egg Salad: grate 6 boiled eggs - mix with mayo, dry mustard, garlic powder, salt, pepper, paprika - serve in an avacado half or eat as is. Don't use too much mayo - you don't want it runny, just use the mayo for moisture. Sometimes to this egg salad I add dill relish.
