Hungry Girl Today: 3.28.14
GIRLS BITE OUT
The only thing better than a fluffy egg scramble? A guilt-free one you can make in the microwave! Today, we're serving up some of the most beloved Hungry Girl egg mugs in existence. Grab a mug...
The Egg Mug Classic
Entire recipe: 125 calories, 1.5g fat, 547mg sodium, 3.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 20g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
It's not fancy, it's not frilly, and it's not winning any beauty contests. But the Egg Mug Classic is the breakfast that launched the genre, so respect must be given where it's due. Besides, if all you have in the fridge is a carton of Egg Beaters and a wheel of Laughing Cow wedges, you'll be glad you have this recipe. Easy, cheesy deliciousness...
It's All Greek to Me Egg Mug
Entire recipe: 117 calories, 2g fat, 459mg sodium, 8g carbs, 1g fiber, 3g sugars, 16g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
No disparagement to the other ingredients, but when it comes to FLAVOR, feta and basil are the MVPs in this recipe. Don't worry, veggies -- when it comes to low-calorie super-sizers, you've got it going on. And egg substitute! You're the metaphorical glue that holds everything together. (Did we forget anyone?)
California Love Mug
Entire recipe: 140 calories, 4.5g fat, 456mg sodium, 7g carbs, 2g fiber, 3g sugars, 16g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Named after the home state of Hungry Girl (the company, not the person), this veggie-packed mug is like sunshine on a cloudy day. What is it about avocado that makes it taste SO good with eggs? P.S. Don't miss the haiku at the click-thru. We really should get back into poetry...
Denver Omelette in a Mug
Entire recipe: 122 calories, 0.75g fat, 702mg sodium, 6g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 2.5g sugars, 21.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Why a simple omelette with cheese, ham, and peppers got named after the Mile High City is a bit of a mystery, but its deliciousness is as clear as can be. It only made sense to stuff this classic combo into a mug. To us, at least. Our logic works a little strangely sometimes, but the results are generally super tasty, much like this b-fast.
Pizza! Pizza! Egg Mug
Entire recipe: 134 calories, 3.25g fat, 746mg sodium, 5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 3g sugars, 17.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Consider this a big step up from eating cold pizza for breakfast. This egg mug has all the right seasonings, the tomatoey sauce, the yummy Parm... even the pepperoni. But unlike that leftover slice from Domino's, it's low in fat and packed with protein. If it were legal to marry an egg mug, we'd be ring shopping...
Veggie Eggs-plosion Mug
Entire recipe: 130 calories, 1.75g fat, 445mg sodium, 10g carbs, 2g fiber, 5.5g sugars, 16.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Calling all mushroom lovers, onion enthusiasts, and enjoyers of asparagus: This is the egg mug for you. Something about having asparagus at breakfast makes one feel fancy... even if one is eating microwaved eggs. Add this recipe to your rotation STAT.
All-American Egg Mug
Entire recipe: 173 calories, 4g fat, 730mg sodium, 7.5g carbs, <0.5g fiber, 2g sugars, 22g protein -- PointsPlus® value 4*
You might think it's odd to pair pancake syrup with eggs, but we can't stress this enough: Don't knock it until you've tried it. Mixed in with the breakfast sausage and American cheese... OOOH, now we're getting hungry. (HungriER, that is.) This mug is a must-try.
The HG Special Egg Mug
Entire recipe: 125 calories, 2.25g fat, 772mg sodium, 3.5g carbs, 0g fiber, 2g sugars, 19.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3*
Wondering what's so special about it? When cheesy French onion flavor meets juicy turkey, perfection erupts from the mug like lava from a volcano. And here's a little secret: When a recipe has "HG Special" in its name, that means it's a bona fide favorite of Hungry Girl Lisa -- one that originated in her home kitchen. See also: The HG Special (the salad) and The HG Special Pizza.
Mexi-licious Egg Mug
Entire recipe: 221 calories, 2.25g fat, 798mg sodium, 28g carbs, 4.5g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 19g protein -- PointsPlus® value 5*
Here's a tip for you: Fat-free refried beans will make your eggy breakfast taste amazingly decadent. And the corn tortilla bits and green chiles make this muggy meal taste way more complex than it is; it's actually super simple. Chances are, you'll want to make this over and over again, which is a great way to use the rest of those beans and chiles.
