Steer clear of hunger without hitting the brakes—simply zap one of these frozen morning morsels in the microwave. This is my family's favorite combination, but try replacing the bacon with cooked breakfast sausage. —Audra Niederman, Aberdeen, South Dakota

"I make a version of this all the time. They are great just with bacon and hot Louisiana Hot sauce.

I recommend using whole eggs because the yolk is where all the vitamins are. Egg whites are not longer considered a "health" food. White only have 3.6 g of protein and trace minerals. Yolks have omegas, B vitamins, A, C, D and calcium, iron, 2.7 g protein, potassium. selenium, and folate to name a few. Yolks are considered heart healthy."
