Mmmm Mmmm Good!

Hi all, I’ve only been at work 2 days, and I feel like I’m way behind on posting and commenting on my favorite bloggers.  Just wanted to make a quick post to tell you about a new recipe I adapted from one that Jill had recommended a few days ago.  I don’t know what the originals tasted like, but mine were fantastic!  Basically I just adapted the recipe to make it lower fat (fits in better with w.w. flex plan.)  I really like cooking and bakiing and developing new recipes, and I hope that I will be able to add more recipes to my blog, in a user-friendly format, in the future…as soon as I learn how to do that!

It is hot hot hot here today, but I feel so virtuous that I went this morning and worked out at Curves.  I know the sameness of it might get boring after a while, but I am one who likes repetitive activity, so I hope it will apply here as well.  Okay here is the recipe:

HAM AND CHEESE BREAKFAST MUFFINS

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

2/3 cup low-fat cottage cheese

2 whole eggs

4 egg whites

3 Tbsp water 

Using a whisk, mix these ingredients well.  Add and mix:

1/4 cup whole wheat flour

2/3 cup oatmeal

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 Tbsp splenda

Gently stir in:

1/4 cup finely diced lean ham

1/2 cup diced or shredded low fat cheddar

2 Tbsp finely sliced green onions

Spray muffin cups with non-stick spray, and divide batter between 8 muffin cups.  Bake 25 minutes.  Each muffin is 2 w.w. points.  Scrumptious!

  1. how is the walking to and fro curves working out? I loved the “sameness” of Curves – no anxiety!

    Recipe looks very good – I will adapt for kids (no splenda) and I think they will really like it. they would be good for “on the run” breakfasts (in the car). Do you supppose they freeze well?

  2. LOVED what you wrote about PRISON on Jill’s blog – that is good way to describe it. I had a “fat suit feeling” all the way down – and when I read other blogs with health problems that would be greatly helped or even solved by weight loss – that is exactly how I see them – stuck in a prison – and not realizing it.

  3. Hi Vickie, Isn’t this bloggy thing fun? I will let you know how the muffins do frozen tomorrow morning, because I stuck them straight in the freezer, and I plan to eat one tomorrow. Yah, the writer of the original recipe (see Jill’s blog) said she made them for on-the-go breakfasts.

  4. Hey Debby!! Wow – your eggy muffins sound really good!! I need to make another batch, they are so easy for mornings on the run.

    Glad Curves is working for you! I didn’t walk or run or anything all weekend long and I am definitely feeling the need to get my endorphin fix VERY SOON!!
