I’m still working on making good eating choices for my lifestyle. What that means to me is to eat food that is yummy but good for me. It also means that I need to prepare food so that it is easy for me to make these good choices. That means using some time during the week to do some meal prep. I often boil eggs, peel, and refrigerate them so I can have a quick high-protein snack. I wash and chop a bunch of lettuce and store it in a Ziploc bag so that I can quickly and easily make some salads during the week. It is easy to add toppings to the lettuce to make the salad slightly more interesting.
Today, I found a baked egg recipe on the http://www.dailyburn.com website. I modified it a little to make it easier for me. If you want the original recipe, click on this link.
Spinach Green Eggs and Ham Recipe with Tater Tots
1 10 oz box frozen chopped spinach, defrosted
8 large eggs
8 oz cheddar cheese (I would reduce the quantity a little)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 onion, chopped
1 red (or green) bell pepper, chopped
8-10 oz ham cold cuts, chopped
1 cup tater tots, defrosted and shredded
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Saute onions, peppers, and ham in a pan and let cool.
- Squeeze excess water out of spinach.
- Mix ham and onion mixture with spinach eggs, cheese, baking powder, salt, and pepper.
- Layer the tater tots on the bottom of a 9″x13″ baking dish.
- Pour the egg mixture over the tater tots and bake for about 25 minutes.
I sliced the finished product and put into cupcake liners and refrigerated for my easy breakfast for the week. I enjoyed it with freshly made salsa.
According to the Daily Burn site, the egg mixture can be stored in the fridge for a week. Just reheat in the microwave at 50% power for 60-90 seconds. Living Hilo Style.
