Extend your eggs

As I am an  afternoon oatbran muffin eater, I like to have eggs for breakfast rather than a galette. But an egg or 2 on its own is not really enough. Here are 2 "extenders" that I like to use in my scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Puregg Simply egg whites - I will put a layer of this in the pan first before my eggs; and Philadelphia extra light; I use about 100-150g, scoop out as smaller pieces. It takes a little mixing in the pan as you cook, but helps make the eggs smooth and tasty.

Slendier Slim have released a lasagne version that I have been playing with. The product has some similarities to pasta, but is made of a vegetable called konjac and is okay to consume on PV and PP days.

The mince meat (lean beef or chicken/turkey) is seasoned (stock cube, chilli garlic etc) and cooked on a stove top until brown. Add a jar of low fat pasta sauce (Braille Arrbirrata) or a little water and 200g Philadelphia extra light cream cheese for a PP day. Set aside.

The cheese sauce is a 400 g packet of Philadelphia extra light (microwave 30 sec to be soft), mixed with about 200g plain no fat yogurt until smooth. Then stir in 2 egg whites). 

Start layering, meat, cheese, pasta, meat, cheese, pasta, meat, cheese, pasta, then cheese on top. Sprinkle with paprika. You can also sprinkle  a tiny bit of strong Parmesan cheese.

Bake 35-45 minutes at 180 degrees Celsius.  

Pretty good. The PV day lasagne with chicken mince is pictured here.
