OTHER IDEAS TO TRY

  • To test if your pan is hot enough, sprinkle a drop of water on pan— it should sizzle and evaporate immediately.
  • Loosen and lift cooked eggs from edge of pan to allow uncooked egg to run onto the hot surface to cook.
  • Add fresh herbs and soft, creamy fillings like goat cheese at end of cooking time so they just wilt or melt.
  • Go Mexican with fat-free salsa, peppers, low-fat cheddar. Go Greek with spinach, onions, feta. Go Italian with part-skim mozzarella, basil, tomato.
