As someone who has to watch her cholesterol intake, I've gradually experimented with egg substitute --altho actually my hubby is the omelet maker of the family! The egg sub works really well and I love it. I love eggs but, 2 eggs take me above my cholesterol limits for the day.

Good ideas, except for the continued obsession with throwing away the yolks (which are loaded with nutrition and, in and of themselves, are not the source of high blood cholesterol. Sister just told me of an article indicating that the egg yolk contains a substance that prevents its cholesterol from having a negative effect.)
Interesting to note that the studies done years ago, which first began demonizing eggs, was funded by a CEREAL company.

I love ortegas, bacon, avocado, jack cheese topped with sour cream. By using beaten egg whites, turkey bacon, and light sour cream. I get a filling breakfast.
Can't wait to try your ideas.

Omlets are a great way to incorporate additional vegatables into the diet. I pour my egg into the omlet pan until the bottom sets, then throw the chopped veggies on top and sprinkle cheese on top. I then take it off the stove and slide the pan under the broiler for 30-40 seconds to melt the cheese and finish cooking the egg on top. Sometimes I leave the pan under the broiler a little longer until the cheese starts to bubble and become golden like a pizza. Then fold and enjoy.
