big leightons’ favs #4

Y’all. These. Are. FABULOUS.


My Dad told me about them a few months ago. My Sweet Hubby (aka MSH) and I have bought many since. We’re keeping at least four in our fridge at all times. These are our two preferred kinds. There’s a third that’s got sausage in it. I’m not a big sausage fan. MSH is a MAJOR fan of all things sausage. I only buy these two (Winky. Wink.) and he hasn’t complained yet. 

My youngest sister, Lucy, and TLC have basically dismissed these. Like they think it’s silly to buy them. When (they’ve all but said this...): How hard is it to scramble an egg and throw a few extras in?

I’ll tell you exactly how hard it is for this “I-ain’t-no-great-at-home-Chef-but-anyone-who-has-ever-had-my-scrambled-eggs-will-tell-you-they-ROCK:”

I don’t have to chop anything up. I don’t have to wash a thing but a fork. And it’s ready in about three minutes. Am I, in fact, lazy? For about $2 per container—not counting the egg or the electricity it costs to microwave it for 90 seconds—I may be. Don’t care.  I’m all in on this DELICIOUS convenience. 

A warning: This is going to stay HOT in the container for several minutes! I actually transfer my end-dish into a paper bowl. (Lazy and not as “green” as I should be—YEP! That. Is. Moi. Sorry. Not sorry.)

I’ve eaten these for breakfast, lunch and dinner! Add a piece of toast and some fruit and you’ll probably be quite satisfied and full. 

Will I continue to make my famously yummy scrambled eggs for family and friends? Yes. I will. But for me and MSH? These are all we usually need. 

We find these close to the butter section in the cold cases at Walmart, Kroger’s, etc. Hope you aren’t faced with them gone/out the day you want to try them. These are POPULAR. At least in our area. 

(By the way: Each container is 4 pts—counting the egg—if you’re following a Weight Watchers’ program. Not bad for a meal. Not bad at all.)

Happy Weekend, Sweet Friends!
