Hi!

I was trying to do a mock danish recipe but then found out I had no cream cheese, almost no splenda, and worse yet, practically no butter, anyway I was determined to experiment and see if I could cook a lowcarb dish different from the typical egg.

So here is what I did:

I put 5 egg yolks, (only the yellow little balls in the middle, hehe!!) and whip them with some butter, some spices, and some diced sausage, then in a small glass container I nuked it for like 3 minutes in the microwave (maybe you need more time to make it as dry and firm as possible in your microwave).

When it cools off you have a very tasty and dense almost crunchy,very filling and satisfying breakfast/lunch/snack that you can prepare in a hurry and very easily carry along with you in any container. Experiment with it adding different fillings (like tuna, salsa, sausage, ham, vegetables,cheese, etc) and you will have a great dish!! Trust me, its delicious and you will not believe its eggs!!

Its simple: mix some egg yolks with molten butter or cream cheese, pour any filling you want in the mix, nuke in the mw until dense and dry, let it cool off a little and enjoy.

Want a mini pizza? beat the egg yolks and the butter with spices, pour a little of the mixture in the container to make the base, add a layer of cheese, sausage, etc, etc and then top it all with the rest of the mixture, send it to the microwave and there you go!!

Give it a try, you will love it as much as I do! and best of all, 5 minutes and you are done!!

Well gotta go back to experiment more in the kitchen and see what else I create.

Saludos from Mexico!

Hey, I tried it, all I had left was two eggs..... I put that in a small glass bowl...stirred in some real butter and some cream cheese....What a great idea....

do you think the eggs get cooked enough in the microwave? It tastes like it, thanks for the good quick idea. I have to try to add some more things to it....

I did not know exactly how much to add, so my first one wasnt the best, yet I know it has potential, thx alot!!!!

I dont have anymore eggs left to experiment :help: ...Gina :wave:

Hi there!

Nice to hear my recipe has already been tried somewhere else! (as fas ar Michigan hehe!) as an aspiring scientist is great to validate your experiments with someone else.

You will not believe it but I am actually craving one of this little thingies, cant wait to make another one with cheese (how about sharp cheddar??) hmm yummy!! Love it! I could survive this diet just by eating this!!

Regards
Antonio

P.S. Let me know what other ideas you come up with for this dish!

Hi .. I tried it.. 3 minutes in the microwave.. brought out a crunchy bread dish at the top.. charred and burnt at the bottom. I used only the egg yolks, cream cheese and butter. Maybe the other additions would have prevented the burning and i should have stopped the microwave early.
It sure was tasty though. I ate it anyway..I do like crunchy things (my pitfall)
Next time I'll check it at 2:30mins.
Bright idea..!
What spices did you use?
