Sweet and Savory Breakfast II: Peanut Butter and Jamlet


 

There is a thin line separating creativity and stupidity. I’m straddling it. Delicately.

A week ago or so, I clicked on a link titled “Peanut Butter Eggs,” anxiously awaiting some peanut butter. On some eggs. Because my brain works in a fun way.

What I got instead was peanut butter in a chocolate shell. You know, not Peanut Butter Eggs. You know, candy.

But I don’t want candy.

I want peanut butter eggs. And jam. I think jam should be there too. It’s time my Sweet and Savory Cottage Cheese breakfast got that baby brother its been asking for. It’s also time my breakfasts keep their damn mouths shut.

*I’ve included my original, healthy fats ingredient list along with a lower-cal, lower-fat list of ingredients for you to choose from based on your own dietary needs and wants. Preparation remains the same for both.

Original Peanut Butter and Jamlet
serves one bold virtuoso
342 calories // 14g carbs // 22g fat // 27g protein // 2g fiber // 8g sugar

These loose measurements make a good foundation:

  • 1 large egg
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2 tablespoon of cottage cheese
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon jam
Peanut Butter and Jamlet (Lite)
232 calories // 10g carbs // 9g fat // 27g protein // 1g fiber // 7g sugar 
  • 3/4 cup liquid egg whites
  • 2 tablespoons cottage cheese
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon chunky peanut butter
  • 1/2 tablespoon jam

This is about the moment I realized that I was eating an improved french toast peanut butter and jam sandwich. I approve.

Let’s make weird, beautiful things together:

In a small bowl, whisk your eggs, egg whites, cottage cheese, and cinnamon. I another small bowl, mix together your pb and j.

Heat up a pan over medium heat with some baking (not olive oil) spray. Pour your egg mixture in and let it cook until the edges dry some. Plop your pb and j mixture on one half of the egg, leaving generous room on the edge. Cook a little more until you’re ready to fold over the omelet. Fold. Cook a bit. Flip. Make sure it’s cooked and stuff. Flip. Put on a plate. Marvel at the awesome.

The Anatomy of a Peanut Butter and Jamlet

Hey so this tastes like a french toast peanut butter and jam sandwich. Without the bread. Plus copious amounts of protein. Plus you just put some peanut butter and jam in an omelet. And the Lite version is just as tasty. It really all depends on whether or not you want those added fats and/or calories. Sit back and think about that for a moment. But make sure you’re eating a PB and Jamlet while thinking. Helps the digestion process.

This is the Dr. Pepper and Diet Dr. Pepper of the omelet world.
Also, I should probably make a Diet Dr. Pepper omelet next.

Can I just take a minute to profess my love for breakfast? Of course I can. This is my blog. Basically, if you make good choices for breakfast, the odds of you making good choices for the rest of the day are exponentially higher. It’s not just some obnoxious thing your mom says to make sure you remember how obnoxious your mom is. YOUR MOM IS SO OBNOXIOUS, amiright? This breakfast gives you a strong amount of protein, healthy fats, and okay-carbs that won’t offset your entire day. Breakfast is a nasty trap for useless carbs, especially for a vegetarian. It’s like a bear trap and your midsection is the bear. Or it’s the trap. I can’t keep this analogy straight. Just eat your damn PB and Jamlet or PB and Jamlet Lite and have an amazing day.

This should remove any doubt that The Peanut Butter and Jamlet is going to become your go-to breakfast from now on. You’re welcome.
