Squash Eggs Are AMAZING!
This morning I wanted to make sure my son got a really nutritious breakfast, so I opted for eggs.
I decided to check out Jessica Seinfeld's "Deceptively Delicious" cookbook for recipes that would make eggs even more nutritious.
Here is the recipe I used, based on hers, with my changes marked with an asterisk.
4 Egg Whites
1/4 C. Yellow Squash Puree*
1/2 C. Skim Milk*
2 Tbsp. Shredded Cheese (I used a chedder and colby combo)*
1 Tsp. Garlic Powder*
Pinch of Kosher Salt*
Pinch of Freshly Ground Pepper
Whatever oil you want for frying.*
A Non-Stick Pan for better eggs and less oil needed.*
Put everything, but the oil, into a bowl and whisk it until it is all mixed together.
Heat up a non-stick pan on medium. Put oil in the pan. Put mixture in the pan.
Do your scrambled egg thing.
Side note: You can't really taste the squash in these eggs, but they are amazingly flavorful and fluffy. I am a big fan of this recipe, and so is Jack! He ate all of his rather enthusiastically, and then came over and pilfered some of mine.
