Eggs 3 Ways

It's a struggle to find quick, easy, and tasty breakfast recipes.  It's even harder now that I'm on a no bread kick.  

My breakfast options have become scarce.

I do love eggs, though.  They're tasty and good for you.  

I have 3 unbelievably easy ways to make them.  They're different enough that you don't feel like you're eating the same thing every morning.  Even your kiddos will love them.  

Everyone will be scarfing them down before you can say "Eggselent!"


Microwave Scrambled Eggs


This one is the by far the easiest and quickest recipe.  You can do so many things with it too.  Sometimes, I add a little shredded cheese. If you're feeling crazy, you can put a little salsa in there too.  Get creative!  The possibilities are endless.


1 egg
2 Tbsp skim milk or water
salt and pepper
Toppings (if desired)



Mix everything in a small bowl with a whisk or fork.  Microwave for 1 minute to 1 minute 15 seconds depending on your microwave.  You want it to be nice and fluffy.  If there is a pool of liquid in the center, put it in for a few more seconds.  You can make up to two eggs in one bowl.  Just increase the liquid (add another Tbsp) and time (start at 1 minute 45 seconds).  Enjoy!


Easy Cheesy Omelet


I took these photos before my no bread commitment.  Promise I'm not cheating.  It does taste unbelievable on toast with a few slices of bacon.  Imagine a tomato and a few slices of avocado on that baby.  Mmmmmm.  


1 egg
1 tsp water
handful of shredded cheese
salt and pepper





Whisk the egg and water together.  Salt and pepper lightly.  Pour into a small, sprayed, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat.  Cook for a minute or two until eggs start to set and spread the cheese over one half.  Fold the eggs in half and then in half again to form a triangle.  Enjoy!  


Creamy Cottage Cheese Scramble


These are the creamiest, softest eggs in the world.  Don't be scared of the cottage cheese, you can't taste it.  It just makes the eggs crazy fluffy.  You can substitute with cream cheese if you prefer.  That's super yummy too (especially with chopped chives).  


2 eggs (for 1-2 people, I have made up to 8 eggs at a time)
2 Tbsp cottage cheese (I use a 1 egg to 1 Tbsp ratio)
salt and pepper



Whisk the eggs in a bowl.  Salt and pepper them as desired.  Pour into a sprayed, non-stick skillet over medium-low heat.  Add the cottage cheese and gently fold into the eggs until they are incorporated.  Don't over cook or over work them.  This should only take a couple of minutes.  Enjoy!

p.s.  Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice?  1.  Because you guys were so amazing yesterday with all of your support and advice.  I loved hearing from every one of you and appreciate the time you took to reach out to me!  
2.  Because I cut my finger pretty badly while making dinner last night.  It wouldn't stop bleeding and I was freaking out a little bit.  I haven't cut myself in the kitchen in a very long time.  It seems very strange that it happened right when I give up wine during the week.  Coincidence?  I think not.  Is this a sign that I need my nightly BMJ?!  No, stay strong.  Say it with me!

  4. It is a sign that you must drink wine while cooking. I love egg sandwiches so much and they must have avocado. I usually make mine scrambled, low and slow baby....make 'em so creamy!

  7. Eek. Sorry about the cut. I never put cottage cheese in my eggs, but that is such a good idea!

  8. All those eggs look so good!! I love doing "egg in a frame". Cut a circle into a slice of bread and fry the egg in the circle. It looks fancy but it's the easiest thing ever! :-)

  9. Knife cuts are scary as hell - sorry you had one! Way to not chug the vino at that point as you had earned it with the injury. Loving how easy that microwave option is - sorry, husband, you can now cook your own breakfast it looks like :)
