You betcha! but you might wanna make sure and wait for another person to confirm it as I am on the fence. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the Nutrisystem guys because they can give you help better...
There are lots of great things you can do with the pancake mix. Check the recipe section and try the apple bundt cake or the mini doughnuts. They are awesome!! As for the eggs, well, I just season them well and choke them down. LOL People say that they taste much better when cooked in a pan but since I take my breakfast to work, that is not an option for me...
You can make muffins and all sorts of things out of the pancake mix. I think they taste pretty good just the way they are. Not a lot different than any other pancake to me..
Eggs- no clue, never had them...
I too was wondering what to do with the pancake mix. It was sent to me as part of my free week of food. There's a nice picture on the package with something on top of a pancake, like pancake syrup. We can't do that can we?..
I use a little bit of the light syrup, but I don't know if it's allowed. If you want to keep it safe, get some frozen strawberries, and let them defrost in the fridge. Chop them up, and add a little splenda if tart. You can either put that on top with a dab of fat free coolwhip or heat the strawberries over the stove to make a warm syrup. Any fruit will do really, my mom uses peaches!..
Well, my husband prefers me to add an egg and make a cheese omelette. Of course, it cuts back on your lunch or snack by one protein, and makes a big breakfast, so you may want to switch your breakfast fruit with your lunch protein to balance out the portion size of your meals. In my opinion though, the extra egg just makes twice as much for me to gag down. I found the microwave actually works better because it makes them fluffy (and small). Then I douse (sp?) it with sauteed green onions, mushrooms and garlic powder (I use the fat free cooking spray to sautee with). Then I put a serving of fresh salsa on top.
Good luck! If you have at least two weeks worth of food though, you can always return them..
As for the pancakes, there is a cheese danish recipe on this site that sounded pretty good. Go to the community home page, and look under recipes...
Yes, you can have sugar free syrup with your pancakes!..
I thought one egg was a protein serving, is it 2?..
I use the pancake mix for baking. I love the bundt cake - so easy to make and very filling. I also make muffins by combining the pancake mix and the oatmeal mix (see recipe section for instructions). This makes 4 large muffins (2 for each breakfast serving)..
When I make the eggs - I add egg beaters and cook them in the microwave. Sometimes I'll add some chopped turkey pepperoni as the additional protein...
One egg is a protein serving, but if you add the egg to the powdered eggs then you have two proteins. HTH!..
The egg is one serving, but the cheese is borrowed from your "dairy or protein" serving at lunch time...
I just put up a recipe for peach flan using the Nutrisystem pancake mixdelish!!..
I add blueberries to the pancake mix and it sweetens them up..
As far as the eggs, I add my 2 T of salsa to them and they are pretty tasty...
I like to make the pancakes sweet I add in a half of a capfull of vanilla enough cinnimon to add color and a packet of splenda then I make them and add the strawberry syrup above me..
A lot of people cook the eggs on the stove. I'm not as picky so I nuke it with a handful of frozen bell peppers. Put peppers in, nuke for 20 seconds to unfreeze the peppers. Let stand for 10 minutes (this helps with the consistency). Cook according to directions. If it's still watery, cook for 10-15 seconds longer until it's firm.
Top with parmasan cheese and eat. I had this for breakfast this morning. So convenient. I grabbed a plastic spoon and ate it at the bus stop..
I'm trying to find a way to do these on my own since I can no longer afford the food and my supply is going to eventually run out..
For the pancakes I add a little sugar free DaVinci/Torani syrup in place of some of the water, and one egg white (makes it fluffy and adds protein). I top it with sugar-free maple syrup, or chocolate or blueberry Walden Farms syrup. Some people use berries for their fruit serving and add that on top...
A little bit of sugar-free pancake syrup is allowed...
Wow!!! You guys are great! I might make it after all. This is my fourth week and I ws beginning to wonder :-] Now I'm all reved up again. Thank You so much. I especially like the little 'weight loss measure lines'. They are very encouraging. I will try to be more inventive with the food. Lost eight # so far...
Yesterday I added some diced banana to the chocolate chip pancakes before cooking them, then topped with some ICBINB spray and sugar-free syrup. It was awesome!..
I don't have lots of time in the mornings to fix pancakes...so I decided to get out my deep waffle maker. The mix made one waffle and it was nice and crispy. I added just about 2tsps. of sugar-free syrup and used ICBINB spray! It was fast and YUMMY!..
Take 2 Nutrisystem Egg Breakfast. Add 1 cup of ff milk, 1 cup of egg beaters and 1 protein (I use half ff cheese and half deli ham). I also add chopped, sauted onions and peppers. Mix altogether and pour into 9 muffin tins sprayed with Pam Spray. Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. 3 of these equal 1 breakfast entree.
You can also freeze these for later...
I make the pancakes as stated in the directions and I use applesauce over the pancakes as my fruit. My favorite weekend breakfast...
This was exactly what I was l looking for today since I have about 12 pancake mixes and was craving waffles. I think I'll mix up several of the packets and make some to freeze for faster workday breakfasts..
I made the eggs this am for the first time. I put the dry mix and water into the blender, sauteed mushrooms, shallots and a small bit of tomato in olive oil PAM. Added the egg to the veggies, and added some sliced canadian bacon as my protein. Made a plateful and was pretty darn good...
I use a sugar free syrup on my pancakes that is equal to one of the things you can have under 20 calories.. the eggs forget it I just dont eat them lol I usually have my egg as my protein..
There's no mistaking. When it comes to the dry eggs you have to cook them in a pan. When I used the plan last go around that seemed to work best. As for the pancakes I put blue berries that have been mixed in equal (or whatever sweetener you prefer that cooks well). I also found that if I let the pancakes cook untill a little dry they tasted better because the blueberries would pop as you ate them...
I don't know what to tell you about the eggs. I have just given up on them. I really like the pancakes though. Instead of using milk, I use a heaping tablespoonful of Dannon Light and Fit yogurt and make up the rest with water. The yogurt gives the pancakes fluffiness. They are hopelessly flat if you make them as directed..
The blueberry pancakes are GREat they were my 1st Nutrisystem meal today. I added a little almond extract and sprayed them with ICBINB spray.
Does anyone have a GTxpress 101? I was thinking of trying the eggs in that (once my food arrives!!)..
Regular eggs cooked in it come out super light and fluffy...
I like the eggs, actually. But, I agree that they are best cooked on the stove. they make easy omelets. I sprinkle a little parmesan cheese on top and throw in some chopped onions and tomatoes. Doesn't take long at all - my grocery store has already chopped tomatoes, onions and peppers in the veggie section - really simplifies things - and I toss about 1/4 cup in a lot of foods for extra veggies...
I use an egg white for fluffyness..
The eggs are good if you just add some frozen bell pepper strips and top with parmesan cheese. In fact, I'm eating Nutrisystem eggs as I type...
Here are two recipes that I have gotten from postings in the last few weeks. They are really good. There is also some more muffin recipes that.
Has collected that are good, too. I made the pancakes once using the package directions, and put half a medium mashed banana in the mix. It was great! Hope you enjoy!.
Pauls NutriSystem Breakfast Bundt Cake.
It counts as 1 Breakfast Entre + 1 Fruit Serving + 1 Dairy/Protein Serving + Free Foods.
* 1 package of NutriSystem Pancake Mix (chocolate chip).
* 1 egg (I use 1/4 cup liquid egg, like Egg Beaters or 3 Tbsp liquid egg whites).
* cup of unsweetened applesauce.
* tsp. vanilla.
* tsp. cinnamon.
* 3 packages Splenda (or sweetener equal to 1 Tbsp. of sugar I just use 1 Splenda.
* 12 squirts I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray (It's good even without the ICBONB!).
* 2 Tbsp. any calorie-free maple-flavored syrup.
1. Place pancake mix, cinnamon and sweetener in a large microwave safe bowl and mix; add egg, applesauce, and vanilla and stir thoroughly until all ingredients are well mixed..
2. Leave in bowl and place in microwave. Cook in microwave on high for 3 minutes (longer if necessary). Finished product should resemble a small individual bundt cake (depending on dimensions of bowl used) and be moist with the texture of a sponge cake..
3. Turn upside down onto serving plate and spray with 12 squirts of ICBINB spray, and drizzle with syrup, and enjoy!.
Variations: try using regular pancake mix and instead of applesauce, use baby food fruit - the 3.5 oz gerber 2nd foods or any of the 4 oz jars then top with similar or complementary fruits I really like Peach.

2 Nutrisystem Scrambled Eggs (Dry mix).
1 cup (8 oz) liquid egg substitute.
1 cup fat free milk.
Blend ingredients in medium bowl with wire whisk. Add chopped veggies or chopped up ham as desired. Divide into 6-muffin pan sprayed with butter spray. Bake 15-20 minutes, until eggs set. Cool. Turn out of pan.
Recipe makes 2 servings (6 muffins). 3 muffins = 1 Serving = 1 Nutrisystem Breakfast + 1.5 Dairy/Protein..
The eggs need some minor doctoring but are not bad. I eat them frequently. In fact, I had the Nutrisystem eggs this morning...
Oh...I made the pancakes this morning also - instead of milk I used one egg white and sugar-free Kalua flavored syrup (the kind that Starbucks uses). Cooked it and smothered it with Walden Farms blueberry syrup and it was yum - like a dessert!..
I like the eggs with NS. First, I cook some red bell peppers and mushrooms in the omelet pan than pour the egg mixture over them. I keep cooking the eggs until it's firm them flip it over in half like a normal omelet. The eggs beaters or store bought fake eggs are lower in calories because of the low protein so I add a tablespoon of soy protein to the mixture. They still come out great..
I use one whole egg and then several egg whites. Cheaper than egg beaters...
I like the pancakes; I spray the pan with fat free cooking spray, mix up the mix as directed. I make one large pancake and use the ICBINB spray and then the allowed amount of the sugar free syrup..
For the eggs, I normally add 1/4 cup of egg beaters to it and then scramble them in the pan sprayed with the fat free cooking spray. They are not bad. You could add onions, peppers, etc. if you like..
Try it - you may like it!..
