Just Crack an Egg
Posted by: vision63
Date: November 24, 2020 12:59PM
Bought a couple of them on a bouf, and didn't even try them. I had to run somewhere this morning all of a sudden and didn't have time to eat. I threw it together in a jif, add a couple of dashes of hot sauce and some cracked black pepper. I enjoyed it.

It's satisfying and is a relatively small amount of food. Film at 11.

Looks like 470mg/serving (1 package). That's a lot.

That looks like a convenient snack.

Maybe even more satisfying then reaching for a bag of cookies.

My youngest daughter likes some of these instant "in a cup" meals -- but the sodium in all of them seems to be wild

These have 600-700 -- and she could eat a few. Thankfully shes only 13, so maybe doesn't effect her like us old peeps.

I make something similar with this gadget, one of the few "as seen on TV" that actually works: [the-gadgeteer.com]

Nice thing about most of the instant noodle meals is that the seasonings are in a packet so you can control how much you add into the bowl. I assume all of the sodium is also in the packet, so I would never add the whole thing.

Hi everyone,

This is essentially a commercial version of "microwave scrambled eggs in a cup". I usually just use a single egg, some shredded cheese and bacon bits. For my little one, she likes Eggs in a Cup made with an egg, a little bit of half and half, a little bit of butter and salt. Whole process usually takes about 70 seconds from start to finish. Or, as I prefer to say it, nuke until done.

Exactly.

I wonder if the cup can be dumped into a suitable bowl, add egg, and bake in a toaster oven.

It'll take a little longer, but that's only until I find a microwave I like.

Salt is not a threat to teens. The habit of salt is the threat because people age.

My mom switched us to a low salt diet when I was a teen. I thought I would die. Good luck.

Yeah, she cut in half and you get used to it. She also would always turn down my music and tv. Would quickly get used to that volume too.

Sustainability...please, more reusables and fewer throwaways. With all of the throwaways we accumulate from take out dining, the least we can do is avoid them when cooking at home.

Interesting.
My wife bought a '1 egg pan' some time ago. I've started using it for making pan open omlette...
dab of butter
melt on medium heat.
two eggs, scramble in pan with silicone spatula
add bacon bits or pieces of smoked sausage
add chopped green onions
add diced tomato
pepper and other spices
1 tbsp pancake mix
mix
top with shredded cheese
Let cook until brown on bottom.
Flip, cook until not saucy

We're safe, we rarely do take out.
