Think Thin Thursday ~ The Heavyweight Breakfast, a Final Holiday Push

By
Real Estate Agent with Florida Supreme Realty SL514814

This could be touted as a low-carb meal but I wouldn't actually be fooling anyone. The time from Thanksgiving to the New Year is a food filled long term event for many of us. What I've done during the past few years is to implement the metric system into my diet when these 40 or so days appear on the calendar. It's an easy way to temporarily quell the guilt.

Oscar Wilde said it best "After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even ones own relatives." That may have been uttered after loosening his belt after a Thanksgiving meal. All in all food can be called a universal language for it is said that those who give you their food also give you their heart. The holidays may have ended however I am hopeful that the caring and sharing will continue throughout the year.

Eggs Presnog

In Florida we have to draw the line somewhere and when it comes to visitors in our homes you might hear the saying guests of guests may not have guests. Yep, it's time to round 'em all up and send them on their way. On a visit to my Aunt & Uncle's in the Sunshine State back in '69 this was the final meal my Aunt prepared prior to our trip back home to Pennsylvania. My Mom has made it a couple of times and I too have used it for many brunches over the years. The variations are endless but if you're looking for a meal that'll satisfy the gullet you're gonna love this gooey, cheesy guaranteed to add 5 lbs. heavyweight extravaganza. We call it Eggs Presnog!

Here Goes!

7 eggs
1 cup milk
2 tsp sugar
1 pound Monterey Jack or Muenster cheese, cubed
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1 16 ounce container small curd cottage cheese
8 tsp butter
½ cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder & 1 tsp salt

 

Beat together the eggs, milk, and sugar.  Add the cheeses and butter.  Mix well, and then add the flour, baking powder and salt.  Pour into a greased 9 ×13 inch (or 3 qt.) glass baking dish.  Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in the center comes out clean. DO NOT LICK THE KNIFE

Serve it warm, makes enough for 10 to 12 guests

Note:  This may be made ahead of time and refrigerated.  If the pan goes from refrigerator to oven, bake for 60 minutes.

 

ENJOY! Now about the metric system I mentioned earlier.

Doesn't it sound much better if I tell you I only gained 3 kilos

this holiday season instead of 7 pounds.

Good morning, Kevin J. May .......well, it surely looks good....that's a jumbo cheese omelet .... I love cheese but eat very little of it....no flour!!! 

reminds me of all the baking I did over the Christmas Holiday....  I gained nothing... ate as I always eat.....my scale moves 1-2 pounds, up and down...  and I weigh myself every day to keep an eye on it....

Barbara, if it's real quiet I can hear each bite's splash into my stomach. Can't do that with an omelet altough I do have my mushroom & spinach one now and then. This monster is left for odd numbered years only.

Good morning Kevin. I am one who loses the battle to maintain my weight over the holidays. This year I almost made it. Enjoy your day!

This does not look at all like the Todaro omelet, but it sure looks delicious, haha.

Barbara Todaro has tolerated my nutrition upheaval very well over the Christmas holidays. I forgot to offer her fair warning prior to posting and should let you know that it could inhibit some of your jumping ability on the court.

It is very good, in moderation of course. 2019 is looking good already also.

That looks so beautiful!  It makes me cry.  My unsatisfying breakfast this morning was a cold shake of kale and berries.

My taste buds enjoy both choices while one perks me up the other tastes too darn good to forgo, infrequently of course.

Looks delicious, Kevin.  But definitely not on my diet (unless I cheat again).

This recipe has a restraining order against the word diet. We both know that indulging will bring a hefty fine Gabe.
