Cheesy Scrambled Egg Boats

We finally have a working camera! Taking pictures on my phone just wasn’t cutting it. So now I can post recipes again! I’ll need to add a Recipe page on my blog too. I don’t have many to share yet, but hope to keep adding them…and I hope you find something you enjoy.

I have a few that have become favorites in the past few months, so I am looking forward to sharing them. I have also learned to LOVE stuffed peppers, so be prepared for those kinds of recipes. 🙂

Today’s recipe actually started months ago and is a variation of my Basic Scrambled Egg Boats. I prefer red peppers, and wanted to add some cheese, without all the egg spilling out of the pepper. What better way to do that than with a nice slice of onion! So here is one of my favorite meals these days!

Cheesy Scrambled Egg Boats

1 red pepper, halved
2 scrambled eggs, seasoned with salt and pepper to taste
2 thick slices onion
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Simply fill your pepper halves with egg. Top the pepper with a slice of onion, and pile your cheese on top. Bake in a glass baking dish (for easier cleanup), at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes, or until the egg is cooked through.

My estimates calculate this recipe at 480 calories, for both halves. It is filling and I find it holds me over just fine.

You can cut back on the cheese to cut your calories if you’d like. I love cheese and when I use this much, I make room for it in my daily calorie allowance. I should probably cut back, huh? lol Perhaps one day, but for now I’m losing weight so it’s obviously working for me.

Basic Scrambled Egg Boats

I got a bit off my exercise routine the past few days. Wednesday night my son didn’t sleep well at all. I first heard him crying at 2:30 am, and it seemed like every 15 minutes for the rest of the night. Marcus said he heard him at 1 am. Needless to say I was very tired Thursday, so I didn’t get up early to exercise. I didn’t do it that night either, and opted to go to bed early. Or is that the night I went for a walk outside when Marcus got home? The days are blending together. Basically, that short walk was my only exercise the past 3 days. I got back on track and did my wii Biggest Loser workout this morning.

I have only done my exercise circuit once so far. I should have done it at least once more over the past few days, but didn’t. I will do it today, then I still have two more days to do it this week and I will consider myself still on track to meet my goal.

This month I am focusing on exercise more than my diet, although I am still trying to eat as healthy as possible. Today I threw together this super easy lunch. It’s so easy it’s almost embarrassing to share. But I will, because perhaps some of you haven’t thought to do this. I wouldn’t have thought of it until recently, so I will share!

1 green pepper, halved
2 eggs, scrambled
salt and pepper, to taste
cheddar cheese, to taste

Place peppers on a baking sheet, cut side up, like a boat. Fill with eggs. Top with a little shredded cheese, or a slice of cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

This was so easy to make, and is very versatile. You can use any color pepper you like. Add a little bacon or onion. Top with any kind of cheese. Even a tomato slice on top would work great!
