This recipe had two purposes: one to have fun cooking with my children and two to sneak healthy food choices into their breakfast. Both my children did not like eggs or cheese, both of which are good for you. So I created this great recipe to fool them into eating well and loving it!!!

Serves 1

1 whole egg, separated
1-2 tbl grated cheese
salt (optional)
butter or oil

Heat oven to 350.
Separate the yolk from the white.
Put the yolk in a small dish and the egg white in a bowl. Whip the egg white until it is firm by hand or using a mixer.
Fold the grated cheese onto the egg white. If the cheese is not salty add a pinch of salt.
Grease a sheet pan and spoon the egg white in a mound on it, make an indentation in the middle, doughnut style.
Bake for 3 minutes in the oven. Remove and slip the egg yolk into the middle of the egg white. Bake for another 2-3 minutes until the yolk is cooked to your desire doneness.
Serve with toast.
