40 Second Breakfast

In a rush? No time for a hot breakfast? Think again...

Shelly's 40 Second Egg Cups

1 Egg, beaten
dash salt
1 teaspoon Parmesan Cheese, grated
Optional: any herbs you like (Mmmm Basil or Dill)
4 slices Genoa Salami, sliced thin
4 Silicon Baking Cups

Beat egg, salt, Parmesan and any herbs together. Place salami in silicon baking cups (forming a cup in a cup) and divide egg mixture equally into each salami cup. Nuke on high 40 seconds. Makes 4.

Popped a couple and a few other breakfast goodies in my super cool Bento Box and head outside on the patio to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine...

Pink Box (top left): Aged & Smokey Cheddar Cheese
Green Box (top right): Watermelon Chunks
Blue Box (bottom left): Shelly's 40 Second Egg Cups
Orange Box (bottom right): Sliced Pineapple
Along side: Peach Green Tea Drink Stick (I swear I'd never drink water if it wasn't for these things)

That looks absolutely wonderful! Do you need to nuke each one individually or can you nuke them all at once?

TY Bev. It was yummy like "Bacon" & eggs without the work & mess... I did 2 at a time.

You motivated me to get a bento box and mini cookie cutters! I can't wait till I can eat solids again. Hope this warm fall weather keeps up so I can go sit at the beach with my bento. Thanks for all of your great ideas and tips. -april

I don't know where to put this but I need help! I have stumbled upon your website and LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!

However, I am having such trouble with my protein ice cream attempts. They taste great but I am having big trouble with alot sticking to the sides and bottom of the frozen cannister (I have the cuisinart). I can't seem to get it off. And while I try, the rest starts melting before I can get it in the freezer. What am I doing wrong? Thanks so much...

Here are some tips for success


Pay special attention to #4 & #5 the majority of problems is because... Ice Cream is made out of cream and we are using milk (water content higher, fat lower) water freezes...

You must use 2% milk or above or what you will get will be ice milk-ish not ice cream-ish. This includes Soy Milk... no low fat.

Also on the Cuisinart the cylinder must be moving when you add the ingredients.

Read thru the tips :) Hope they help,

That looks awesome!

I just wanted to take a sec to tell you I've been following you since June and I don't think I've ever commented! You look fabulous and you're a huge inspiration. I was banded in June so I know there's a difference with us, but all your delish recipes, tools, and ideas are such motivation. I'm buying a bento box soon and going to try the protein you use. I did a blog KINDA about you the other day. I showed a bunch of stuff I'm going to buy and you gave me the idea, so I mentioned you and did a link to your blog! Thanks! Can't wait to try your 5 min cake recipes.
