Cheezie Egg Scramble

Cheesy egg scramble in an egg shaped dish.I ordered new egg shaped dishes for an upcoming Easter brunch. I threw together this egg scramble to pre-test the new dishes. Double cheese WOW is all I can say about this egg scramble. The cool egg dishes were found at Oriental Trading (of course, they are now sold out).

Ready for the microwave.I used egg mate substitute because it’s low in calories and cholesterol. Plus, egg mates are packed with protein and potassium. A great way to start the morning.

I must admit there is no recipe. I just dug around in the veggie bins of my fridge and pulled out food items I thought would work. After my scavenger hunt, I ended up with the following ingredients. You can adjust to whatever you have on hand.

 

Ingredients

  • Baby spinach leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Egg Mate per serving, plus 1 teaspoon water
  • Diced tomatoes
  • Portabella mushroom, chopped
  • Yellow bell pepper, diced
  • Scallion, finely chopped
  • Roasted red skin potatoes (chopped). I used leftover red skins from this Blimpy Girl recipe I prepared earlier in the week.
  • 1 wedge Laughing Cow Swiss cheese (if you don’t want the double cheesiness, cut the wedge in half).
  • Salt & pepper to taste

How To

In a microwaveable cup or egg dish add:

1 tablespoon chopped spinach,  pinch of scallions, 1 tablespoon roasted red skin potatoes, pinch of yellow pepper and 1 teaspoon diced tomatoes. Microwave for 45 seconds. Remove from microwave. Add 1/4 cup Egg Mate and Laughing Cow cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Return dish or cup to microwave and heat for an additional 45 seconds.

Tip: Spray cups/dishes with non-stick cooking spray before adding ingredients.

Here’s the scoop on calories. Surprisingly, this cheezie egg goodness is a mere 70 calories. If using one-half of the Laughing Cow cheese wedge, calorie intake is 50. For me, the extra cheese is a treat.

I added two Morning Star soy sausage links (on the side) to this egg scramble. Two links are 80 calories.
