After this, I headed over to dodgeball where my team went 4-0 and absolutely creamed our competitors. No socializing afterward, just a nice loooonnnggg walk back and a stop at Tasti-D-Lite along the way. Came home at 9 and got to work making....OMELET MUFFINS!
At less than 100 calories per muffin (1/2 egg each) these guys can be made on Sunday night and enjoyed (2 at a time, probably) until Tuesday morning. Microwave for 35-45 seconds before eating.
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup ricotta cheese (part skim, all skim, whatever)
1tsp black pepper
Add any toppings you like in your omelet.
I made this one with salsa and feta cheese because I had it on hand.
I would say 1/3 cup black bean and corn salsa, 2.5 servings of fat free feta cheese.
This batch makes about 8 mini muffins (1/2 egg in each, about 100 calories apiece)
Note: I have a plastic muffin "tin" (see below) so I just spray it with some Pam before cooking.
**This recipe has NO oil or butter!**
Bake at 375 degrees for about 20-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry.
I put some Parmesan cheese on top of these about 5 minutes before they were ready to come out of the oven.
I took 2 to work with me this morning. Microwaved for 45 seconds, wrapped in foil, perfect breakfast during lecture. Added half an apple to this. Other half appeared in my lunch salad later.
Future endeavors? Mother's Day Egg Muffins. These will have lox+cream cheese (fat free of course) and dill.
Perhaps feta/tomato/olive....turkey bacon/cheddar cheese/tomatoes? Possibilities are endless!
What do you like in YOUR omelets??
