Eggscellent Recipes

Our hens have been laying machines lately. All of a sudden we had 3 dozen eggs in our fridge and I needed to use them up.

Basic Frittata Recipe

3 whole eggs
6 egg whites
chopped veggies

Combine all and fill muffin pan 3/4 way and bake at 350 for 20 minutes.

This is just a very basic recipe. Fill these with your favorite veggies or low fat sausage or ham. You can also add in fat free/low fat cheese. Great for breakfasts on the go. Just microwave to reheat and run out the door.

Chinese Fried Bulgur

1 cup boiling water
1/2 cup bulgur
2 tsp oil
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 onion, diced
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1/2 carrot, finely diced
1 tsp low sodium soy sauce

Put bulgur in pot and pour boiling water over it. Stir, cover the pot and let sit for 30 minutes.

Put 1 teaspoon oil in a nonstick fry pan. Pour in egg and let it cook as an omelet. Remove from pan and cut the egg into slivers and set aside.

Add remaining oil to the pan. Saute the onion and carrots. When onion begins to turn golden, add the green peas. Cook until the peas are soft.

Add the bulgur and mix well. Add the soy sauce and mix well. Add the egg, mix and reheat.

OK, I don't like peas. So I'll be using leftover diced veggies from my frittatas. Red, orange and yellow peppers with onion, zuccinini and asparagus.
