Lunch at the Jim Bunch's house — a fancy egg sandwich plus — less than 500 calories

This is Jim's Four Minute Egg Sandwich. Garnished with low fat cottage cheese and shrimp it made a very nice lunch for one.

When Mrs. Jim is home for lunch it is just as easy to make for two.

Ingredients - Calories - Fat Calories


One large egg - 71 - 45

Salsa 1 heaping tsp - 7 - 0
Whole wheat bread 2 slices - 180 - 20
Low fat American cheese 1 slice - 50 - 25
Medium frozen cooked shrimp 5 each - 33 0

Low fat cottage cheese 1 serving - 90 - 20
Medium frozen cooked shrimp 10 each - 66 - 0
Diet Coke, one can - 0 - 0

- Defrost shrimp in hot water. We have an instant hot water facet.
- Toast bread. Today I substituted one slice, the top one, for two small and thin slices of Kroger Bakery LaBrea Baked Vienna Petite Loaf Bread with slightly less calorie count.
- While bread is toasting, break egg into a four by one inch square Pyrex baking dish. Whisk briskly with a fork held flatly with bottom side down until yolk is fully integrated. Add Salsa and whip again until fully mixed.
- Cover with paper towel and cook in microwave for one minute at 100%.
- Place one half cheese slice one each side of cooked egg.
- Cut in half and lift piece out with a clean fork.
- Place on prepared bread, I put chopped shrimp and ketchup on mine. (RED for Ruby [Red] Tuesday posting)

Total Calories: Sandwich - 341 - 90

These can be reduced by using no-fat cheese and cottage cheese. I do not like the taste of no-fat cottage cheese.

Katrin and Adi were my observers. Katrin was laying on the floor until I tried to get her to pose better. It is unusual for Adi to lay down while I am eating.

On the other hand, Katrin is French and she could be well behaved with us at any French restaurant. Most restaurants there want the dogs to be on a leash,tied to a chair or the table. That would be fine with Katrin although she does not like walking with a leash.

Great cooking. You try to keep calories down and I just want to have very few things to wash. Life is fun.

Of course I don't have much too wash either. One saucer, one cutting board, and one egg cooking dish, and one two forks (one to stir egg, one to eat from) and two knives.
I'll make yours (just a taste of jelly on one bite at first) and you'll make mine?
