- In small bowl, beat together eggs and water. Coat a 7 to 10-inch skillet with cooking spray. Heat over medium-high heat. Pour in egg mixture.
- With an inverted pancake turner, carefully push cooked portions at edges toward center so uncooked portions can reach hot pan surface. Cook until top is thickened and no visible liquid egg remains.

THIS IS A KEEPER! I am currently trying the weight watchers flex program to lose a little (okay - more than a little!) and was looking for a filling, low points breakfast. To lower the fat content, I used fat free refried beans and salsa, replaced one of the eggs with two egg whites, and used 50% reduced fat cheddar cheese. I warmed the beans and salsa mixture in the micro to shorten time and lessen messy pans. It turned out great - very filling and a change from the usual breakfasts. My calculation is 5 points made this way. THANKS FOR A GREAT IDEA!!!!!!!!!
Was looking for a new way to make Sunday eggs when I stumbled on this recipe. I made a lighter version of this and enjoyed every bite, starting with replacing 1 of the eggs with 2 egg whites. Final result was not really a surprise as I made fat-free refried the beans leftover from a favorite recipe and some super salsa brought home with me from New Mexico. The cheese was a reduced fat cheddar - well 2 out of 3 ain't bad. Guess the point is the ingredient selection here is really important - skimp on the beans and salsa and you'll be dissappointed. Use good stuff and you'll be as happy as I was. Great combination. Thanks.
I fixed this for breakfast at a family reunion last weekend and every one wanted to know where I learned to cook like this. Rob464
