Fridays are for Fun–and Comfort Food Too :)

Friday is here again! Happy upcoming weekend, friends: hope it’s restful, fun, productive—whatever you want it to be!

So what’s more fun than a simple, comfort-food recipe (especially when I get to eat it, lol)?

This one can do breakfast, lunch or dinner—and is ready in ten minutes or less. Keep in mind, this is not the best choice for anyone watching their cholesterol count as is, but can easily be adapted to be more heart-healthy.  This also works for those who abstain from meats and makes a great Friday meal during Lent.

What you’ll need:

One slice multigrain bread

One egg plus egg whites (or only egg whites)

One slice cheese of choice (I like white American; a low-fat, 2% slice works well too)

Cooking spray and/or oil (I like canola)

Put it together: 

 Spray a non-stick frying pan and add a teaspoon or so of oil; tilt to coat pan.

Toast bread and cover it with cheese.

Heat pan over medium to high heat. (Don’t make pan so hot egg burns once you drop it in.) Crack egg into pan and add as many egg whites as you like. (I always add one). When white is set gently turn egg over and continue cooking until yolk is as cooked as you like. (Soft—but not runny—for me.) Remove from heat, gently place egg on toast/cheese. Season with salt/pepper to taste. Serve hot and enjoy! (I love to dip the bread into the yolk. Maybe it’s an Italian thing?) Fruit and coffee round this out beautifully and often keeps me un-hungry for up to four hours.

What are some of your favorite, simple meals? Share them here! (If we get enough, we can collect them into a freebie pdf cookbook and offer it on Amazon or Barnes and Noble? What do you all think?)

 All the best!

One thought on “Fridays are for Fun–and Comfort Food Too :)

  1. Silly as this sounds, eating this with a fork while cutting it with a knife gives it more of a satisfying, real-meal-feel. (Works with pizza, too.) I’m all for psyching myself into treating myself when it comes to food–helps me eat less. Can’t explain it, but–for me–it works! 🙂
