Healthy/unhealthy

What's the healthiest /unhealthiest thing you cook on the egg

Comments

  • Chicken is my answer to both.

    Had some chicken breasts in my attempt to start a healthier diet.
    So I made some duxelles in butter

    Added some healthy herbs

    Flambeed in some low cal brandy

    Rubbed the breasts with olive oil and Dizzy Dust and tossed on the egg at 400*
    image
    Pulled the breasts at average 125*
    image
    Rolled out and cut the low carb puff pastry and added the duxelles
    image
    Set the breasts on the duxelles
    image
    Finished four and egg washed with a little butter..low everything by the way

    On to the egg indirect

    Off the egg after about 25 minutes

    On to the plate over a sauce made of reduced chicken stock, gourmet cream of mushroom soup (low fat) mushrooms sauteed in butter, and low cal full cream

    Brilliant chicken wellington! Never seen such a thing. The parsley makes it healthy.

    I got that part,  but still thought it was a nice cook.  It would have been entirely unhealthy without the green stuff.

    Unhealthiest is probably pizza.  Most of the other things I make on the egg are pretty healthy.  Grass-fed steaks, chicken, fish coupled with sweet potatoes and greens are all pretty great in the health department.

  • +1 for the pizza for no other reason except the mass of cheese I love so much. Healthiest? Fish in most forms. My beloved but oh so damn expensive Flank Steak.

  • Smoked mac and cheese, pretty damn unhealthy, but oh so good.
