Baked Dill Egg With Nutty Tuna

Never in a million years did I think I would be having tuna for breakfast but….

IMG_1403It has always been a challenge for me to get my daily allowance of protein so I am setting a new goal today.  It is going to take some creativity in finding new ways to add more into my diet.  This morning I started by making a tuna salad with yogurt instead of mayo, added a few Brazil nuts and baked an egg instead of frying it.  By my calculation this breakfast was around 25 in protein which is most likely more than I get in an entire day.  I have never sat down and actually put it on paper, however I am pretty sure.  Brazil nuts are one of my favorite, an excellent source of selenium but high in fat (good fat though).   We Got Nuts is an awesome company that I order from frequently.  They have a wide selection of nuts, seeds, dried fruits and snacks.

How to:

  • 1 package (2.6 oz.) Starkist tuna
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Fage plain yogurt
  • 6 Brazil nuts, finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mozzarella, finely shredded
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon dill
  • cooking spray

Break egg into ramekin coated with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with salt, pepper and dill.  Bake at 350 degrees until egg is cooked to the way you like it.  The egg will slide out easily onto the plate.  Mix the tuna, yogurt, Brazil nuts, salt and pepper and plate with the egg.  I love cabbage and so I added a couple of Napa cabbage leaves, a radish and a sprinkled with a teaspoon of mozzarella cheese.

Have a eggcelent day!

  1. Wow that looks great. I’m in a new exercise class that recommends eating a lot of protein one hour before class, I’ll have to try something like this! My classes are at noon during lunch, so that would be perfect at 11 am, after having some yogurt or something earlier. I’ve just been eating a protein bar and a boiled egg, this looks way better, lol. 🙂
