    this is great! because you have to “remove” the sauce and dirty up another bowl, just cook it in a separate skillet and fry your eggs in your favorite pan.

    I’m somewhat new here, but I don’t understand why the recipes are so high in carbs. This one is 12g - really hard to stay under 8g for the rest of the day. What am I missing?
