I am sure there are many threads related to this but I don't have time to sift through the hundreds of threads.

I need some new and quick breakfast ideas. Its getting chillier here now and this morning I was craving a bowl of oatmeal ..... obviously not Atkins friendly ..... so I need some other warm-me-up ideas.

Eggs hardboiled, scrambled, fried, etc.

And you can do bacon with them, or cut up veggies to mix in, or both, or put in salsa.

I stick to eggs maily, so those are my main ones :)

There's a crustless egg quiche recipe floating around this forum somewhere, sandyfanny seems to mention it a lot. Maybe she can give you more info :)

I make that crustless quiche and it's quick AND easy :drool:
Basically I make 12 at a time, they store pretty well for a couple of days. Sandyfanny's might be different but here's what I do.

Ingredients:
12 eggs
2 Tbsp. heavy whipping cream
3 Tbsp. sour cream
1/2 stalk of celery minced
1/2 small onion minced
1 c. shredded cheese (the 4 cheese mexican kind)
1 jalepeno minced (with seeds)
1 pkg. real bacon bits
4 precooked sausage patties crumbled
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. black pepper
1 Tbsp. chili powder
1 Tbsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder

I mix the HWC, eggs, and sour cream in one bowl, then add to the main bowl with all the other ingredients and mix well. Then I spoon into paper cupcake holders in my muffin pan. I spray the muffin pan with Pam before putting the paper cupcake holders in. I bake at 350 for 1 hour. The little quiches will have a nice golden brown color on top. Naturally, the jalepeno and chili powder give it a little kick :) I am experimenting with these this weekend. It will be something for Thanksgiving. I will let ya'll know how it turns out :)
Hope this helps, Shells :chef:

I love the Sausage, Egg and Cheese Breakfast/Brunch quiche for breakfast. I make one on Sunday night and eat a nice big piece every morning for days...just pop it in the microwave until it's heated through. (1 min. or less) The recipe's on the "Recipes from 'What's for Dinner'" thread.

I have all the ingredients to make what you posted JerseyGirl, too bad I've already had my dinner! I'll have to try that one.

If you like breakfast burritos, I love to make breakfast burrito filling. I brown ground sausage (not links), then beat up eggs with heavy cream, salt, and pepper then pour it in with the sausage and mix it all up so the egg cooks onto the sausage. I then mix in a little bit of cheese and serve it in a bowl. Top it with whatever taco toppings you want, like more cheese, salsa, sour cream, jalapenos, pretty much anything. My aunt has made breakfast burritos for years since I was little and I have always loved them, so I like to be able to enjoy a variation of them without the tortilla.

I am going to experiment with that mock danish .... I don't have a microwave so will give it a go in the oven or in a saute pan.

I made the mock danish at work this morning and divided it up (everyone wanted to know what smelled soooo good :drool:
It was tasty enough and I think if I am having a major sweet craving this would fix it. But I got a little curious as to the nutritional facts of it. I entered the recipe into a site I use to decipher nutritional breakdown of my own recipes. Here what I found:
One serving has 206 calories 133 from fat
10 carbs
4 grams dietary fiber
7 grams sat. fat 0 trans fat
243 mg of cholesterol
164 mg sodium
8 grams protein
3 grams sugars
13% Vit. A 13% Calcium 9% Iron

I LOVE mock danish in the morning. So easy and fast! I like to put some lemon flavored Stevia and coconut oil in mine. The coconut oil changes the texture and makes it more custardy on the inside and almost cakey on the outside. I have to be careful because I could easily eat nothing but these :D. I think they're just as satisfying as oatmeal. I love the lemon/coconut but I've been meaning to experiment with other flavors too :).

I also keep hardboiled eggs in the fridge at all times and sometimes if I have more time I'll just do an egg scramble with whatever veggies I have on hand and some cheese. yum yum!

That doesn't sound right. I put one into Fitday last night and the carb count was closer to 2 or 3...

I know 2 oz of cream cheese that I have is 4 net carbs, the type of eggs I have are half a carb, and then half a carb for sugar twin so mine was 5 carbs.

The one on the site says it is 4 carbs with splenda, 3 with the liquid version. Maybe they have a lower carb cream cheese and are not counting the egg?

I was trying to figure this out too.

ValRock

It must be the cream cheese. Mine has a fraction of a carb per oz.

Steph are you using light or non fat cream cheesE? that increases carb count?

10-21-2010, 09:22 PM
I use nutrition data.com. I imputed the items as listed on the mock danish, but I guess there is always room for error :) I listed the 4 grams of dietary fiber, but didn't deduct it from the overall carb count.
So NOW I am wondering myself about the carb count in a tsp (1 packet) of splenda. I just looked it up and it says there are 0 carbs in one packet :?: So maybe that's where the extra carbs come into nutriton data's calculating??????

:shrug:

All the cream cheese I saw was this amount or more (flavoured ones). I couldn't find any lower so I thought this was as low as it gets.

Is it true lower carb creme cheese exists? :D

islandchick, a packet of splenda has one carb. I use sugar twin which is half a carb.

So I'm assuming that one mock danish has 5 carbs in it. My roomie loves them, but I can't get past the "eggy" taste and texture to it.

ValRock
10-22-2010, 09:50 AM
I don't think they taste eggy at all! What are you flavoring them with?

StephanieM
10-22-2010, 09:54 AM
I love them too much. I'm going to have to hold off on them for a bit.

I feel like they might be a trigger food for me, they taste sooo good and I could see myself binging on them.

Well I have tried the mock danish a couple of different ways .... I don't have a microwave .... I tried in the oven in a small dish, worked okay but the dish was terrible to clean. Tonight I tried on the stovetop in a buttered skillet to brown the bottom and then under the broiler to set the top. I ended up with a pancake.

Back to the drawing board

Haha, aww! I'm sorry to laugh Shells, I was just picturing it as a pancake.
