Ingredients

  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 3 eggs
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp low fat cream cheese (divided)
  • 1 green onion (thinly sliced)
  • 1 clove garlic (chopped)
  • 3 slices wholegrain bread (thinly sliced)
  • 1 handful parsley, fresh
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Optional

  • 2 tbsp Fave sauce (like ketchup)

Instructions

  • Heat ½ tbsp of olive oil in a medium non-stick pan. Wipe it around the pan (or use a spray).
    Add the thinly sliced green onions and chopped garlic. Cook at medium-low heat until onions have reduced and are deep golden brown.
    3 eggs, ¼ tsp salt, 3 tbsp low fat cream cheese
  • While they're cooking, whisk the eggs, ¼ tsp salt, and 1½ tbsp of cream cheese.
    1 green onion, 1 clove garlic
  • Remove onions and garlic from pan and set aside until needed.
  • In the same pan (no need to clean it) add the remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil and the egg mixture. Cook, undisturbed, at medium low heat until a thin layer of cooked egg appears around the edge of the skillet.
  • Using a rubber spatula and broad sweeping motions, push eggs all the way around the circumference of the skillet, then across the bottom. Continue to push eggs around and across the skillet until fluffy and barely set, about 2 minutes; they should still look runny on top.

    3 tbsp low fat cream cheese, 3 slices wholegrain bread
