Move over Martha

So, I...um...got creative with my breakfast today. Lately I've been craving eggs but with the way that my stove runs away on low, I'm not keen on frying or scrambling them. So I thought I'd try the oven. I've read of a lot of people making eggs in muffin tins, so I thought I'd throw in what I had in my fridge. So I took: -a 250g container of egg whites -one cooked sweet potato -one green pepper, -one red pepper -half of a zucchini -1oz of marble cheese, shredded -2 tsp EVOO So I... Sliced the potato and put them in the bottom of each tin.
Put in one egg white.
Chopped the veggies up nice and small, tossing them in the extra virgin olive oil. Put a spoonful in each tin.
Took a smidge of cheese and topped each.
VOILA!
All of that created nine of these bad boys for 1 POINT each, or three of them for 4 POINTS. I'm a happy girl.

Do you have a microwave?
I got a little plastic contraption that poaches eggs in the microwave, if I do it juuuust right.
And if I don't, well, I needed to clean the microwave anyway.

Oh my goodness these look fan-freakin-tastik!!! Can't wait to try them. Martha has nothing on you :). I notice that when I have eggs for b-fast they stick with me much longer than cereal. I know it's the whole protein thing...but I think growing up in the 80's getting every corn doodle, sugar covered wheaty o commercial shoved into my feeble brain has caused me to think "It's not breakfast unless there's cereal"...LOL
