Easy, Perfect 2 Ingredient Parmesan Eggs




My day usually starts with a Premier Protein Shake (Chocolate, Caramel and Cookies and Cream are my favorites!) or a protein shake I whip up in my blender— simply because I need all the help with reaching my exorbitant protein goal as a weight loss surgery patient. It can be really difficult (for me, at least) to reach my protein goal simply with protein found in food especially since my day consists of meals with very small portions. I’ve found I just feel really good about the rest of the day if I start out with a high protein breakfast. 

But on the days where I want to actually CHEW my breakfast, an egg usually does the trick. And while it definitely doesn’t pack nearly the amount of protein that my trusty shake does, it’s so nice to change it up! I have to admit, a scrambled egg with cheese is usually my go-to but with my husband working from home on his half day Fridays, I was on the hunt to find something a little more special than just a basic egg and also something I could enjoy and these are just the ticket! He LOVES them with a piece of the Dave’s Killer Bread (we like the Good Seed Thin Sliced kind) and turkey sausage. While I just like them plain, as-is, no funny business. Cook these on the stove and your kitchen will smell like a fancy brunch spot and I promise you, these could not be easier or make you look more like Martha Stewart. Who can be mad at that?!

There are many recipes for this dish online and different variations of it but this way has worked for me & I’m telling you.. they’re such a delicious change up if you’re looking to add a little variety and fun to your breakfast! 


Easy, Perfect 
2 Ingredient Parmesan Eggs 
Ingredients:
  1. 2 eggs 
  2. 4 tbs shredded parm cheese 
  3. Any seasonings you like, I love Trader Joe’s Everything But the Bagel Seasoning on these 

Directions:

  1. Heat a non-stick pan on the stove over medium heat  
  2. Scoop 2 Tbs Parmesan cheese and place in the pan in a thin circular “nest”
  3. Repeat on the other side of the pan. 
  4. Crack one egg over each of the Parmesan nests
  5. Cover the pan with a lid for about 8 minutes until cheese is bubbly and yolk is cooked
  6. Using a spatula, carefully move Parmesan eggs to a plate. This can be a little tricky so be patient. The cheese will crisp up on the plate so don’t worry that they’re a little hard to move. 
  7. Season with Trader Joe's Everything But the Bagel seasoning or whatever you prefer on your eggs and enjoy! 

Start with 2 eggs

Of course, Costco comes through with the best deal for shredded parm! Do yourself a favor and just don't even bother with the small containers at the grocery store. This keeps so well in the fridge and is just really nice to have on hand

Look at those perfect cheesy nests for the eggs!

Lid on. Leave on. 

I mean.. how delicious do those look straight out of the pan?

Cook these up on a slow Saturday morning with your family, a holiday morning with all the family in town or just for yourself on a Tuesday because hey, you're worth it! And these bad boys will be a hit. And nobody will have to know how incredibly easy and fool-proof they really are. Enjoy, friends! 

And if you do make them, post them on Instagram with #bluebonnetbites so I can see your re-creations or leave a comment below. 


Happy Wednesday, friends!
