I love to look for ways to be thrifty in the kitchen. One of the most inexpensive food staples I have in my refrigerator is the egg! If you are still concerned about the cholesterol in your diet, in most recipes, you can use just the whites. My cholesterol is a little on the high side of normal, but my doctor has not banned the egg from my diet. Moderation is the key. Frequently, the local grocers run eggs on sale at great prices, even buy one carton and get another carton for one free.
Ah, the incredible edible....well, anyway...We have hens, and it's amazing how little space and work it takes to have your own fresh eggs. I even know people who live in town who keep a few hens. If you have no rooster, by the way (to the chicken uneducated) then you have no annoying crowing, thusly no annoying gunfire when the neighbors are awakened by said crowing at 4 a.m.. Plus, the QUIET, cheerful hens are delighted to eat the bread crumbs, lettuce bits and such things that are leftover from the kitchen and would otherwise go into the trash.
Also, my husband loves to make deviled eggs for most occasions, and you know the filling NEVER all fits back into the eggs, leaving a nice bit for me to make sandwiches out of. This tides over the hungry, drooling masses clustered around the kitchen while they wait for the main course. It's yummy and makes a great "finger sandwich". Now I'm hungry....must find snack...!
When I am home alone, I often "scramble" a couple eggs in the microwave. I use 2 eggs, about 2 Tbls. of milk, salt, pepper, and -- to make it special -- I often add some Hormel Real Crumbled Bacon bits. Mic for about 50 secons; stir well; and mic another 10-15 seconds. Put on buttered bread and enjoy!! Good with fruit or yogurt. - judy
