Low Carb

Low-carb breakfast

I’m a three meal-a-day kind of girl, plus snacks in between. So I definitely start my day with breakfast. Before I started cutting carbs I ate plenty of cereal for breakfast or oatmeal in the winter. And I absolutely love french toast. I’ve even been know to eat pop tarts. Are you noticing a trend…i.e, lots of sugar. Breakfast was a tough one for me because I was not a big egg eater. I kind of made myself eat them most mornings by adding bacon bits and cheese and many mornings now I actually prefer eggs. However, I do still have a sweet tooth so I knew I had to come up with some good substitutes. When I spotted a low-carb french toast recipe you could make in the microwave, I was in heaven. It fit all of my boxes.

  • Sweet√,
  • easy√,
  • fast√,
  • and low-carb√

I was in love.  The recipe is below and I first spotted it on Sugar Free Like Me.  You do have to use your imagination because it most certainly is not like Cracker Barrel’s french toast, but it does have a good flavor.

I use Maple Grove Farms Low Calorie Sugar Free Syrup on mine and love it.  Not all stores carry that syrup so you may have to shop around as I did to find it.  By the way, I mentioned Cracker Barrel because I do love their french toast and on the occasion that I still splurge and have it, I will ask for their sugar free syrup which is very good and saves a bundle of carbs.

French Toast Egg Puff

Ingredients
2 Eggs
2 Oz. cream cheese
Sugar free syrup and/or 1 teaspoon of artificial sugar (I use Stevia)
Directions
Step 1: Spray bowl or large mug with plenty of Pam.  Soften cream cheese in a microwave for about 20 seconds, then add two eggs and a tablespoon of sugar free syrup (and also a packet or teaspoon of artificial sugar if you’d like).
Stir until blended, but it will be lumpy at this point with chunks of cream cheese.
Step 2: Return to microwave for 45 seconds then stir again. You’ll notice that the egg has started to harden, but just break it up and stir until blended and creamy.
Step 3: Heat in the microwave for about 2 minutes. If still soft in the middle, flip over with a spatula and return to microwave for another 20 seconds or so.
Step 4: Flip the egg puff out of the bowl onto a plate and top with sugar free syrup.  Enjoy.
