Number of Servings: 2


    Nonstick cooking spray
    2 leggs
    1/2 C Egg whites
    1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
    1/4 teaspoon fleur de sel or coarse kosher salt plus more for sprinkling
    1/2 cup fresh ricotta cheese, part skim
    2 whole wheat english muffins, toasted (optional, not included in NI)
    Whole chives (optional)


Whisk eggs, egg whites, chopped chives, and 1/4 teaspoon salt in medium bowl until well blended. Heat heavy medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray, add eggs and stir with heatproof silicone spatula until eggs are almost cooked but still runny in parts, tilting skillet and stirring with spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Add ricotta and stir just until incorporated but clumps of cheese are still visible.
Sprinkle with more salt and pepper. Garnish with whole chives, if desired.

    Very good. I made this ahead of time and had it for breakfast two days in a row. Reheats very weel, ricotta keep the eggs moist and creamy. Didn't have chives so I used scallions instead. Will definately make this again. - 3/16/10
