3 eggs (240 cals)
2 servings All Egg Whites (50 cals)
1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour, or any flour (260 cals)
2 small chicken sausages, buffalo flavor, chopped (140 cals)
3 servings turkey bacon, chopped (105 cals)
1/2 cup Fage 0% Plain Greek Yogurt (55 cals)
1/2 medium sized sweet onion, chopped
Handful (3 servings?) fire roasted red peppers, chopped
2tsp S+ 1tsp P
1/2 tsp baking powder
Topped with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese
Directions: sautee the onion (in Pam, not oil). When the onions are translucent throw in the chopped meats and cook just a little. I used fully cooked sausages and bacon, so I just warm them up.
After cooking the onions and warming the meats, combine the remaining ingredients together (feel free to play around with the spices) and bake in a muffin tin at 375 degrees for about 20-25 minutes or until the muffins have risen nice and high. Once they rise, sprinkle some grated parmesan cheese on top and cook for another 5-6 minutes until the cheese is melted.
These come out at ~100 or maybe 105 calories apiece. They're a bit small (about the size of a vine-ripened tomato) but they are FULL of protein and fiber. Super filling. Plus, you can have 2 and a yogurt for 300 calories. =) Actually these went so fast I had to make another batch which I'll post soon.
Why this picture? Well, it seems that the holidays and all other indulgences have put me up a few pounds and I am now sitting at my goal weight and tend to fluctuate up (usually not down) so it is not where I'd like to be. I am tryind desperately to cut down on snacking, and certainly on portion sizes. This little cup is my triumph. Here is a tiny little coffee cup with a tiny little spoon holding a little under 1/2 cup of mocha chip frozen yogurt. This stuff is amazing, by the way. Creamy and delicious as regular ice cream but a little less guilt-free. It's more sinful than Tasti-D-Lite but also tastier.
This was actually from a while ago and I totally forgot to post it. I had mozarella, basil and tomatoes left over from the vegetable casserole I had made for thanksgiving. These went with the stuffed chickens and made a really nice side/appetizer for those.
This was actually part skim mozarella. Another great way to serve it is to buy fresh mozarella, slice that and put it on top of tomato slices with or without a basil leaf. No baking required. The freshness is amazing.
The best thing about these: you can make a LOT of these if you're having company. They go fast, but if you have the ingredients on hand, making them is fast too =)
I think that's enough for today's post. I have plenty more coming up, including a much better post on making the omelet muffins. The second batch is already being eaten today =)
