This recipe is as it was listed in the cookbook. It wasn't listed as a diet recipe. I believe it's French in origin and takes a few minutes to make, so I don't make it everyday, otherwise, I definitely would.
Eat your heart out, Gordon Ramsey.
Then, you fold this into your perfectly whipped egg whites.
The heat should be about medium low. You need to get the center to cook without burning the bottom.
The more the egg is browned, the more eggy it tastes, and in the morning I do not like an eggy taste. It is just something I cannot do. I tried, too. Trying to amp my protein and increase my metabolism.
Could. Not. Do.
When it's just lightly browned, stick it under the broiler for about 20 seconds to cook the top. You could flip it or use a lid when you start if you don't have a broiler.
I then defrost frozen fruit for the center. Normally I do this after I get the egg mixture in the skillet. I find that I like peaches and raspberries the best. Strawberries kind of get too soft. I use about 1/2 cup and just defrost in the microwave. I use the same small bowl that the yolks were in, rinsed out of course. And the small amount of water in the bowl helps to make a sort of sauce with the fruit drippings as it heats. You could sweeten this as well, but I like it tart.
The final carbs in this are still seriously low and when I eat this, I feel great for the day. Full, content, but not heavy.
It does taste like you've eaten something pancakey.
Yes, I know that's not a word.
Let me know if you try it!
