In this and many more “traditional” carbonara dishes, the addition of an egg is used to create a creamy sauce without curdling. Here are a few other unexpected ways to incorporate the protein-rich egg into your diet.
On a Pizza – Prepare your favorite homemade pizza recipe and bake until almost cooked. Carefully crack a few eggs around the pizza and return to the oven until the whites are cooked but the yolks are still just a bit runny.
In Fried Rice – Stir-fry chopped broccoli, bell peppers and carrots in oil until softened, and then add a few beaten eggs. Add leftover fried rice (or just make brown rice of your own) to the mix and cook until everything is golden. Add soy sauce and sesame oil to finish.
A Crucial Ingredient in French Toast – Dip two slices of whole-wheat bread in two beaten eggs and a splash of nonfat milk, allowing the bread to absorb the egg mixture before cooking on the griddle. For a sweet version, drizzle with pure maple syrup or go savory by adding salt and pepper to the beaten egg and cook in extra-virgin olive oil. Top with sliced tomatoes or a light dusting of grated Parmesan cheese.
In Salad Dressing – Add flavor and texture to salad dressing by finely chopping a hard-boiled egg and adding it to a simple vinaigrette. Place the chopped egg at the base of a medium bowl and add the juice of a quarter of a lemon, a small dollop of Dijon mustard and salt and pepper. Whisk in extra-virgin olive oil to taste.
