Fun With Eggs!

Posted on April 05, 2019 by

It’s no secret that eggs pack a great little protein punch and are extremely versatile in your diet. They average about 70-80 calories and contain 6-7 grams of protein. They are rich in choline, which helps promote normal cell activity and aids in the transportation of vitamins and minerals through your system. Eggs contain all 9 of the amino acids that are essential to your diet. What don’t they do?  They don’t add to your carb count!

This time of year, you’ll see eggs everywhere – have you colored a batch yet?  (You don’t need a child’s help but it could make it more fun). Pick up a dozen – or two – and make your own this weekend!  We made a batch last weekend with this no-mess trick that’s great for little fingers.

You’ll need a bag of rice and some basic liquid food coloring along with a number of small plastic containers with tight-fitting lids.  I picked up the rice & containers at the local dollar store.

Start with this great tip on cooking the perfect hard-boiled eggs.  Allow them to cool and dry completely.

Put about 3/4 – 1 cup of rice to each container and add 8-10 drops of coloring to each cup.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Shake the container to distribute the coloring to the rice.  Open the container and add a hard boiled egg, reseal and hand to a small child to shake!

 

 

 

 

Remove the colored eggs from the cups and lay on a paper towel to dry completely. You can make them multi-colored by tossing them into a second color.  If the rice seems to be drying out, add a few more drops of coloring and shake before adding a new egg.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enjoy these colorful treats & Happy Easter everyone!

Mini Frittatas

Posted on December 20, 2013 by

mini frittatasThis is not only an impressive dish, but so easy you’ll make them regardless if you eat low-carb or not. Best of all, you can eat these straight off the pan or at room temperature. I make them when having guests over for brunch, but you can easily pop the leftovers in the freezer and reheat, since the recipe makes about 40. There are about 4 g of carbohydrates per mini-frittata, depending on your ingredients.

Mini: Frittatas

  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 8 large eggs
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces thinly sliced ham, chopped
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves

 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Spray 2 mini muffin tins (24 cup each) with nonstick spray. Whisk the eggs, milk, pepper, and salt in a large bowl to blend. Stir in the ham, cheese, and parsley. Fill the muffin cups almost to the top with the egg mixture. Bake until the egg mixture puffs and is just set in the center, about 8-10 minutes. Using a rubber spatula, loosen the frittats from the muffin cups and slide the frittats onto a platter. Serve immediately.
