Pizza Eggs

Ingredients:

  • 1 baby potato
  • 1/2 cup egg beaters
  • 1/4 cup low-sugar pizza sauce
  • 1 stick low-fat string cheese, cut into thin rounds
  • 2 Tablespoons shredded or grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  • Bake the baby potato.  (I do this quickly by wrapping the potato in a paper towel, then wrapping around the paper towel with a cloth kitchen towel, then putting the cloth towel bundle in the microwave and cooking on high heat for 2-3 minutes.)  Once the potato is baked, carefully cut it into a small/medium-sized dice.
  • Lightly spray a microwave-safe bowl with oil.  Pour the egg beaters into the bowl, then add the diced potato.
  • Microwave the egg/potato combo for 45 seconds, then stir, and cook for another 45 seconds.
  • Top the now-mostly-cooked egg/potato combo with the pizza sauce.  Then place the string cheese rounds on top of the pizza sauce.
  • Cook the bowl of egg/potato/sauce/cheese for 30-45 seconds, or until the sauce is hot and the cheese melts.
  • Carefully remove the bowl from the microwave, and top the food in the bowl with the Parmesan cheese.  Eat immediately. (Or, wait a few minutes and allow the food to cool slightly if it’s too hot to bite into right from the microwave).

Makes 1 serving.

Miscellaneous suggestions, insights, and/or thoughts:

  • This dish tasted like a brunch item that might be served at a pizzeria.  It certainly isn’t a replacement for a proper slice of pizza, but it is good in its own right.
  • A side salad (or a serving of some other green vegetable) and a piece of fruit can be added to this main dish to create a fast, well-rounded meal.
  • I suspect kids might like this food; could be an easy way to feed the family on a harried week night.
  • (Admittedly, this dish is a close cousin of the previously documented Easy Italian Eggs; but I still think it’s good.)  :)
