Let me preface this by saying dinner was so easy to make and Hubby approved ::two thumbs up::
I introduce to you my cheat clean dinner for the week…drum roll please!!!!
Be still our hearts… friends, our pizza days are not over…just modified.
As you get to know me, you’ll see I focus on high protein-low carb meals. Carbs have always been a big problem for me. Unfortunately they don’t go straight to my ass, more like my stomach and thighs 😦 Ok, less about me and more about this pizza.
One Mission tortilla= 6 carbs Trader Giotto’s Rustica sauce = 4 carbs per 1/2 cup (trust me, you won’t need to use that much for one slice) and zero carbs for cheese and Hormel turkey pepperoni. Max carbs for this meal is 10 grams.
Here’s what you got to do:
Preheat oven to 350 F
Spray your baking sheet with cooking spray
Lay your heavenly wrap on the sheet
Spread sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on top (remember, you can substitute with any topping or no topping at all…ain’t nothing wrong with the ol’ reliable cheese and sauce)
Pop it in the oven to desired crispiness. Personally, the crispier the better. I love the crunch! – This was about 10 min.
Serve with a side salad and I’d say you got yourself a gourmet Italian dinner 😉
So I tend to get a bit teary-eyed when I talk about avocado toast. And fine, it’s true – I might be a Trader Joe’s fangirl.
But I want you to experience this toast.
I swear to you I am not sponsored by Trader Joe’s (if only!). But Trader Joe’s 100% Rye Bread, in particular, is my favorite for this recipe. If you have access to it, you should definitely use it for this recipe.
This toast is so simple and SO good. It’s perfect if you’re cooking for yourself or for two people. Like many of my other recipes, you can make it all in one pan.
You’ll need: 1. small amount of onion
2. one or two eggs
3. 1/2 avocado
4. one slice Rye (Preferably Trader Joe’s 100% Rye) 5. Optional but recommended: Tomato and/or Olive Oil
Do whatever you do to make your pan not stick. I use Trader Joe’s Coconut Cooking Spray
Cut up onions, throw them on one corner of the pan. You’ll want to do these first, because they’ll take the longest.
Once the onions have been cooking for a bit, begin toasting the Rye on another portion of the pan. At some point you should flip the Rye.
Crack an egg somewhere on an unused portion of the pan. I cook it sunny side up or scramble it, but wtvr works.
Dump everything from pan onto a plate. Spread avocado on toast, add onions and egg on top. Nom nom.
Optional: cut up the tomatoes and cook them lightly in the span. Add them to your toast. SO good!
Double Optional: Drizzle a little olive oil on the whole concoction. MMMmmmMMMMmm.

Egg Thing is elusive… like a dove.
Egg Thing is a feeling more than a recipe. It’s like homespun wool, perfect precisely because of its imperfections.
Egg Thing reminds me of babushka’s cooking – it comes out a little bit different every time. Cooking Egg Thing is like replicating DNA over and over again. The mutations add up. Sometimes they are disastrous, sometimes miraculous – but they always code for Egg Thing.
The Two Foundational Premises of Egg Thing:
1] The presence of three main ingredients
– mixed veggies
– a cut up veggie burger (but specifically, Morning Star Chik Patties are the most delicious)
2] The eggs are always added last, and left slightly wet and yolky. DEAR GOD I WANT EGG THING RIGHT NOW!!
Egg Thing changed my life because:
– It can be made in a single large pan
– It’s easy, bc it can be made with microwave steamable veggies
– It’s crazy filling, and you can make many portions at once
– It’s a great intro for someone who is new to healthy eating
Here is How I Generally Make My Egg Thing
1. Bag of Steamed Vegetables (I usually Bird’s Eye Mixed Vegetables)
2. 1 or 2 veggie burgers (I usually use either Morning Star Original Chik Patties OR Buffalo Chik Patties. I highly recommend trying with these)
3. 2-3 eggs (I try to stick with Organic, Cage Free…yada yada) Optional:Soy or teriyaki sauce. Or any sauce for that matter.
Directions: 1. Steam veggies according to directions on bag. I steam them in the microwave for slightly less than the recommended time.
2. Do whatever you do to your pan to make it not stick. WARNING: Egg thing WILL get sticky. I use a ceramic pan and Organic Coconut Oil Cooking Spray from my beloved Trader Joe’s.
3. If you keep your veggie patties in the freezer, defrost them slightly – just until you can cut through them easily. Cut each patty up into 8 or more pieces.
4. Throw patty pieces on pan on a LOW FLAME! Flip them regularly and wait for them to brown slightly.
5. Add steamed veggies to same pan, turn it up a little bit. Wait a bit for everything to cook.
6. Crack eggs directly into the pan. Scramble things around a bit. My egg thing is finished when the egg is still slightly wet and yolky. This makes things so delicious!!
OPTIONAL:Add salt, spices, whatever you want. Almost anything will taste great. I especially love adding a bit of teriyaki sauce. It tastes AMAZING. I usually use Soy Vey Veri Veri Teriyaki.
Egg Thing tastes great hot or cold.
I usually make enough to last me a few meals.
