You are going to think this idea is absolutely ridiculous or genius. I tend to think it's genius but I may be biased. 😉 Simply, I make an egg mold out of an empty nut can. Here, I'll show you. I went a little picture happy.
Ingredients I used...
- 1 egg
- 1 egg white
- tiny onion
- ¼ of a bell pepper
- 1 tbsp bacon bits
- 1 whole grain sandwich thin
- non-stick cooking spray
First of all let me tell you what happened. I had a hankering for an egg sandwich this morning. The little guy asked for "cheesy eggs" which, in our house is code word for pretty much a plain omelet. It's a long story that starts waaay back when I made Mommy and Me omelets.
Anyway, before breakfast I was cleaning out the pantry, about to recycle this nut jar...
When something hit me! It's just about the same size as a sandwich thin.
So I took a can opener to the bottom and made a tube.
I then sauteed the onion, pepper and bacon bits and beat them with the egg, egg white, a pinch of salt and pepper.
With a heated a non-stick skillet, I sprayed the tube and skillet with non-stick spray and poured in the egg.
Using a rubber spatula I mixed the egg a few times and cooked for a minute or two until I thought it was set enough to remove the "mold". With the mold removed I flipped and cooked for another minute.
I prepared my thin. I'm an egg and ketchup girl. 🙂
Top with the egg...
... and VIOLA! My fast food style egg sandwich!
What do you think? Ridiculous or genius? 🙂
Here's the nutritional info for how I made it.
