Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I got an useful answer. You should email the people at Dukan Diet as they probably can help you..
Also try putting a little hot sauce on the eggs with a little green pepper or some time I use banana peppers. If you like spicy....
Like my eggs cooked on stove - can do lots to them altho I like them plain with bacon too. Today I used recipe I found here - used eggs with cheese & added cottage cheese (shld have been ricotta) promise, chopped artichoke hearts, chopped brussel sprouts (supposed to be thawed spinach) think thats it - then sprayed a dish & covered with vent - nuked a bit took cover off & nuked 30 secs more - was very good & filling - a Dukan Diet entree, one veggie and free food - I never eat veggies at lunch so I am good..
There are also some recipes floating around for "baked" eggs, which offer a change of pace if you have the time and a toaster oven. I don't remember who posted it, but here is one I have used. I skipped the string cheese and microwaved and broke up some pieces of turkey pepperoni and mixed that in before baking..
1 Dukan Diet Scrambled Eggs.
1/2 C tap water.
1 LF string cheese.
Preheat oven/toaster oven to 375. Spray a 7oz oven safe container with Pam..
Remove the lid from the Egg container and add the water and stir very well. Pour into prepared pan. Slice string cheese into thin ovals and drop into the eggs, evenly distributing around the pan. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes. You'll know it is done with the sides pull away from the pan and the eggs puff up about 1/2 an inch higher than where they started. Serve with salsa or not..
Counts as your entree and protein..
This is just the basic recipe, lots more can be done to it. Add seasonings, or veggies, or not. Use half the cheese and add bacon or ham or something...
I'm with you on the powdered eggs :-( I turned mine into baked fritattas by mixing a few packages together and spreading the protein among them an egg, or a couple of whites, a LF string cheese or better yet soy cheese and some veggies. Fridge them up and eat through the week. Just be sure to keep it OUT of the microwave. It really helped me, since I'm not much of a "sweet breakfast" eater...
I just open the lid, mix in the water and add a fresh egg (staying on Dukan Diet of course) and scramble it. Taste like a normal egg to me..
I add some egg beaters and some veggie sausage and scramble it on the stove and it is so yummy infact had some today. I love the eggs...
Good scrambled with turkey pepperoni and chopped onion or with onion and smoked salmon. I like the latter with a mini 100 cal bagel and a Tbs of ff cream cheese...
I cooked mine on the stove in a skillet and added a real egg to them by using up my dairy/protein serving. Delish!!!..
I cook 5 strips of "Smart Bacon" protein strips on my cast-iron pan sprayed with non-stick spray, then pour in the scrambled-eggs/cheese liquid (after mixing it with water and stirring it up) - this makes a great omelette or even scramble - if you chop it up with the spatula! I gave up on the microwave option with those eggs many months ago!!!..
I have developed a couple of add-ins to help the scrambled eggs taste more like their name:.
A healthy sprinkle of Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning (free food).
A little less than 1 Tbsp of Oscar Mayer Real Bacon Bits (25 cal/Tbsp so using less makes this pretty much a free food).
With either of the above options, you will still have a protein/dairy serving to add. If you like cheese on your scrambled eggs, adding a serving of lowfat/nonfat cheddar will really make the meal..
I have also learned to let the mixture "rest" about 5 minutes after adding the water before cooking it and to.
Cook it on the stovetop...
Thank you for all your help. I got some great ideas...
I saute a few pieces of jimmy dean turkey sausage in a pan before pouring the egg mixture into it and cooking it. After adding cracked black pepper, it tastes just like traditional scrambled eggs to me...
I eat eggs almost every morning, have for the last 8 months or so on NS..
Its great... I mix them with warm water while a pan preheats, grind a lil fresh salt and pepper into it and mix. butter pam spray the pan when it's warm and dump in the eggs...
I lift the sides and let the runny part get under to thicken it up and cook quicker, all the while I have my slice of bread (since I'm a guy) in the toaster oven gettin toasty, and 4 slices of turkey bacon in the microwave. put in middle of paper towels, 2 mins first go around, flip, cook another 1 minute..
Then I flip the omelet when it's strong enough, put a slice of 2% cheddar or pepperjack, take one or two pieces bacon and braek up and put over cheese, then I put some hot sauce chalula and siracha. fold, put over bread, devour.
Its a little high on calories, but I hit the gym 6 days a week and have to add ~1200 calories a day (esp when I am cycling) to maintain loss...
Thank you. I was ready to store all my egg servings in my emergency earthquake kit and just starve on my "egg" days ;-) Even scrambling them in my best non-stick saute pan held no interest for me. I'll try your recipe (yum) next..
