Im so fed up with the choice of breakfast cereals.I need something more filling.

I poached some eggs the other day and wondered if this was a relatively healthy thing to eat for brekky?I used minimal olive oil, should I use something else or nothing at all?

What else could I cook with it that is healthy?Tomatoes, mushrooms?

we make homemade pancakes about the size of a slice of bread and then freeze them with a piece of wax paper between the layers. Then when we want a pancake we just pop it in the toaster. Much cheaper then the store bought and you can make your homemade ones with whole wheat flour, or tailor the ingredients to suit like adding blueberries etc. Here is the recipe that we use:
1 1/2 cups flour
1tbsp sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp oil
1tbsp baking powder
1/2tsp salt
1 1/2 cups of milk

Mix dry ingredients together. In a separate bowl beat together the wet ingredients. Add wet ingredients to dry with a whisk until smooth. And then cook them on a hot griddle or fry pan for about 1 minute one side then turn and cook for about 30 seconds on other side.

We eat our pancakes with fresh fruit as a topping. Yummy!

Another staple in our house is porridge( usually instant ) makes a good change from cereal.
Happy eating!!

I'm partial to whole grain sourdough toast with orange marmalade and coffee.

Eggs are pretty good if you don't tend towards high chlorestral. Olive oil is fine, but I've had trouble with it not standing up to high heat. Sunflower seed oil seems the best compromise between heat resistance and taste.

I like to roll out of bed, throw something on the plate and scarf it down. That meal, though undoubtedly delectable, sounds like it would involve an awful lot of prep time/work...

I'm curious how any olive oil got involved with poaching an egg.

Usually, eggs are poached in water.

I was wondering about that too, ehBeth.

Want something more filling? Try a toasted whole grain bagel with low-fat cream cheese, fresh fruit on the side.

Little bit of an inside joke, Dorothy. We have had lots of chinese students log in to ask many questions, and one of them that got asked repeatedly was about breakfast. What is eaten in the Western world, the difference between Western and Eastern breakfast, etc.
This concludes our history lesson for today. :wink:

OK now, keeping in mind I'm not chinese....



I'll say first up, that those little cartons of Egg Beaters and such taste yucky, much too plain by itself....but......

I'll take one of the containers, and pour a little salt into the carton and shake, so it's already salted when it hits the pan. For me, a container is for 2 meals, I can eat as much as I like, because it's all egg white, so it's pure protein and guilt free.

Anyway, I'll chop up a couple of mushrooms and saute them in just a little olive oil, add a pinch of salt to the mushrooms to make them "sweat" out their moisture.

Then, I'll pour half the container over them, THEN...sprinkle parmesan cheese over it (or cheddar, whatever) not too much, but enough for flavor.

That's simple, tasty, quick and healthy.

I buy the store brand, so it's a little cheaper...I also use it to make cakes, add to meatloaf instead of a whole egg....actually, anything that calls for egg.

When I make egg salad, I boil the eggs, and use the whites, throwing away the yolks.....I'll cook some of those egg beaters up, and chop up into the salad to give it that yellow yolk color. When you put in the dressing and so forth, you can't even tell the difference.

(whispering) Don't tell my husband, but sometimes I'll even cube up some extra firm tofu and toss in there....he's never noticed.

Sometimes I'll ask him, would you like some of these tofu I grilled?

NO....I HATE TOAD FOOD!

Cool
