Breakfast is one of my favorite meals of the day. Not only is it simple to make, but there are so many different varieties to keep mixing up, that way one could never get bored. In today’s edition of Home Cooking, I wanted to share with you a simple, yet very tasty, low on the calories and full of protein breakfast. If you are looking to shed a few pounds, eating a good healthy breakfast is ideal. I wish I had more time in the mornings to throw something like this together, but this is my typical weekend breakfast. It’s simple to make and it takes less than 10 minutes from start to finish.
What Ingredients You Need
- 2 or 3 Eggs
- Bagel or Toast Bread
- Butter or Margarine (you can even use vegetable oil)
- Cottage Cheese
- Cream Cheese Spread
Start by beating the eggs together gently with a fork or spoon. Once the eggs are mixed together, spray some salt on top and pour in a dash of milk. Mix it all together, to create a white/yellowish mixture consisting of eggs and milk.
Next, pre-heat the frying pan on low to very low medium heat. You don’t want cook the eggs on high heat, because you will simply nuke them. Once the pan is warm enough, add 1 table spoon of butter (salted or unsalted. In this case I used butter/canola oil mixture. Pour in the eggs/milk mixture and slowly stir. You can use a wooden spoon or a stainless steel spoon.
While the eggs are cooking, pop in the bagel into your toaster and pull out your cream-cheese spread from the fridge. This way it’s not hard and is ready to be spread over the bagel with ease.
Now that your eggs are done, simply place them on the plate. Add two or three spoons of cottage cheese on the side and add the bagel with cream-cheese spread. As you can see from the pictures, I even added some chocolate milk as a beverage for even more protein. All of this combined for breakfast, with give you a full blast of protein to start your day right. Not only is this breakfast totally healthy and low in calories, but it tastes good too. Give it a try and I’m sure you’ll like it.
