Before I begin talking about what I made for the Pinterest Project today, can I just say that I am 100% truly addicted to the Hunger Games series?? I started it over the weekend and finished the first book Sunday morning. Yesterday after work I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the other two books because I was so eager to find out what happened to Katniss and Peeta. I ended up staying up late and reading about 150 pages into the second book and it’s getting better with each twist and turn. I have to admit that when I woke up this morning, I was exhaust because I had one fo the worst sleeps ever. All I could dream about was the Hunger Games! Seriously it was amazing, but awful and all day at work, all I thought about was the book. On that note, one of my co-workers sent this to me and I thought it was hilarious, so I thought y’all might enjoy it as well. And don’t get me wrong, I love Twilight too, but the Hunger Games is just on a completely different level!
Now onto the real reason I wrote this post…
So, if you know me, then you know that one of the things I absolutely LOVE to eat is eggs! I can eat eggs for 2, even 3 meals a day…seriously I’m addicted. And I love all types of eggs…hard boiled, soft, scrambled…you name it, I’ll eat it. Eating eggs for dinner though is by far one of my favorite things in the world to do. I love breakfast for dinner! For day 6 of the Pinterest Project I decided to make 100 calories of goodness i.e. baked eggs! I repinned this from the ‘The Simple Delights’ blog, but I changed up the ingredients a little bit as I am not a big ham eater and I didn’t want to make 12 baked eggs. So, below is my recipe for baked eggs.
Baked eggs in a Turkey cup – 1 serving
- 1 egg
- 1 thin slice of deli turkey meat
- 1 pinch of shredded cheese
- salt and pepper to taste
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray or grease with olive oil. Lay piece of turkey into one of the holes creating a cup. Crack one egg onto the turkey slice and then salt and pepper to taste. Bake the egg in the oven for 12 minutes or until the egg white sets. Carefully remove the egg from the muffin tin and top with a pinch of shredded cheese. Serve immediately and enjoy!
I ended up making 2 baked egg cups for myself for dinner and then best part of this was that each cup I made was only about 100 calories! I used Sara Lee turkey which was only 12.5 calories per slice and natural eggs from Trader Joe’s. Those added with a pinch of cheese and I’m looking at about 100 calories of goodness! I loved this recipe so much and it was so easy to make, that I will definitely be making this on a regular basis for a quick breakfast or dinner! I actually even left my muffin tin out so I can make one again tomorrow for breakfast!!! Can we say already addicted? Yes.
