Introduction

Great high protein breakfast! Fast and easy in the Microwave.

I love this as a quick dinner option too!

Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1 large egg
    1/4 cup Salsa
    1 oz. reduced fat cheddar cheese
    Cooking spray

    Couple of notes:
    -sodium looks high in this recipe becuase it assumes ready made salsa. I make my own salsa w/o salt and that greatly reduces the sodium level.
    -you can use eggbeaters to reduce fat but I think the texture of whole egg is much better

Directions

Serves one

1. Spray a small ramekin or mug w/ cooking spray
2. Place salsa in bottom of bowl, crack egg on top of salsa and then top w/ cheese
3. microwave for anywhere from 30 seconds to 2 minutes depending on power of the oven and how runny you like your yolk,
4. Enjoy!!

    Even better:
    First line the dish with thin-sliced ham.
    Then you can lift it out and serve it on a plate.

    I was afraid the egg might explode in the oven, but was pleasantly surprised that it just cooked. I did adjust the cooking temp, though. It took about 90 sec. at power 7. Very good/quick breakfast. - 10/14/09

    We made this today, with a few variations and it was awesome. We used fit and active egg sub(60 cal for 2 eggs worth) and used "natures promise" low sodium, no fat salsa. and we actually baked it in the toaster oven for 10 min. and it was awesome! will definatley do often! thanks - 1/17/10

    I cooked it my first time with 3 eggs in a bowl. One spot kept looking a little runny, so I kept nuking it for more. Well when I cut into it with my fork, it literally launched yolk at my face!

    Great recipe, but if you're gonna make any modifications...cook safely, folks! :)

    Quick & Easy but very tasty. Ended up giving mine a very light scramble halfway through cooking to mix all the yumminess together. - 7/25/09
