Eggs pack a lot of protein within that fragile shell. However, eating plain old scrambled eggs every morning can get old. Try these simple ideas to eat more eggs in different ways.
Poached with grits: To poach an egg without a fancy poaching pan, simply boil two to three inches of water in an 8 inch skillet. Once the water is boiling, lower the heat to allow the water to simmer. Crack an egg into a small glass bowl. Then slowly pour the egg into the water and allow it to cook for three to five minutes. Remove the egg with a slotted spoon. Poached eggs are delicious over cheese grits with slices of avocado.
Egg sandwich: Pack veggies into your breakfast with this egg sandwich. Fry an egg and pile it on top of a slice of toast or a bagel with cheese. Add veggies like spinach, mushrooms, avocado or whatever pleases your palette. Add ham or bacon for an extra slice of delicious.
Omelette: Omelettes are great ways to pack more veggies into your breakfast. Try it with spinach, mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Another favorite is western style with onions, bell peppers and topped with salsa and sour cream.
Hard boiled: Boiled eggs make great salad toppers. Try a salad with romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, crumbled turkey bacon and a hard boiled egg. Hard boiled eggs also make great snacks on their own.
