Over the past several months, I have watched my kids pull the eggs out of the refrigerator. They begin breaking eggs into a bowl to make breakfast, but I notice they dump the egg yolks into the sink! I can't help but think that they are throwing away the best part of the egg....the part with the most flavor, not to mention wasting a perfectly good egg yolk!
Recently I tried an egg white sandwich that had veggies and cheese, and I have to tell you it was delicious. Not only that but it is so much better for you. I went to the store and found a container of simply egg whites, and I thought, why not? Let me give it a try - at least I would be preserving my supply of eggs with their yolks! I have to admit I was a little leary about how they were going to taste...was I going to miss the yolk?
I begin my yummy breakfast by cooking some onions in my fry pan with a little olive oil. All I had in my fridge for veggies was a jar of roasted red peppers, so I cut some of them up and threw them in.. I also found some fresh mozzarella cheese to throw in. Pour in the egg whites and cook until they are set. I am lucky enough to still have some fresh basil growing in a pot outside my back door, so I snipped a bunch of leaves and sprinkled them over the egg whites, along with some shredded cheese and a little salt and pepper.
The best ingredient of all is the avocado. As you can see, I added quite a bit~
I use my spatula and fold the omelet in half and leave it on the fire for just a couple of minutes more. I couldn't believe how big it came out, so after sprinkling a little more cheese over the top, I cut it in half. I knew I would find someone here that would eat the other half!
