italian baked egg

italian baked egg | my skinny sweet tooth

Quick! Name something you could eat as a main dish for any meal: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. … … … …  Ok, ok, pizza doesn’t count! (but who doesn’t love cold pizza the next morning?! yum! 😉 )

I’ll give you a hint: it’s the perfect balance of melty cheese, buttery egg yolk, and molten tomato sauce. All 3 make up one of the best things I can rely on when I need that “comfort food” fix -any time of day! Yep, it’s:

ITALIAN BAKED EGG, ITALIAN BAKED EGG!

For this recipe, I love to add polenta. It’s so creamy and adds a depth of flavor that sets this apart from other italian baked eggs. I’ll never make it without polenta. Trust me, it’s that good.

I want everyone to try these italian baked eggs and fall in love like I did. Maybe I should host a brunch. You’re all invited! 😉

skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin

skinny cheesy cauliflower gratin | my skinny sweet tooth

This is another recipe that came on a whim. I knew my intentions for how it would come out, but I had originally bought a head of cauliflower to make my skinny general tso this week. Well, that was until my husband saw the cauliflower waiting patiently in the fridge and was really wanting to try my recipe. (He works night shift, so he hadn’t tried my general tso yet. Our eating schedules are off … and quite frankly, he likes his meat: chicken, beef, you name it) So I was really excited that he wanted me to save it for this weekend. Awesome!

Instead of having the cauliflower sit in the fridge all week, I decided to roast it up. I also had a 1/2 empty jar of light alfredo sauce that needed used, so that started the wheels to turn and eventually I came up with this. 🙂 It’s garlicky, cheesy, and I’m very happy with how the gratin turned out. It would make a great side dish or even a vegetarian main dish. The portions are a hefty size (which I love 😛 ) but feel free to adjust serving sizes to accommodate you and/or your family.
