I was up for a full hour yesterday when I decided I wanted to make wonton egg cups for breakfast. I turned my oven on, put the wonton cups in the oven, and by the time I got out of the shower and was dressed, they were done – so about 10 minutes in a non-preheated oven at 350.
The nice thing is that they cool really fast. Inside I have 1 ounce of Swiss cheese, 2 ounces ham, 1 whole egg, 1 egg white and sprinkled with fresh basil. With delicious watermelon on the side.
These would be perfect for a brunch or company coming over since the wontons can be made and stored for a couple days.
I ended up doing a 5k on the treadmill at lunch, but I mixed it up. I started out walking, then raised the incline and speed, then did one minute sprints, trying to go faster each one – my fastest sprint was 6.8 mph! I find I don’t mind running if I mix it up like that. With a cool down it was 45 minutes.
I actually ate my lunch with a couple co-workers in our lunch room when I got back, so no picture. Just imagine last nights pasta, but instead of meatballs, pam fried shrimp. Lunch came in at: 458 calories, 76 carbs, 26 protein, 5.8 fat and 3.4 fiber.
With the leftover Italian sausage meatballs, a sliced them for our party pizza Friday. Tony’s side: sliced meatballs, mushrooms and black olives. My side: sliced meatballs, pepperoni and pickled jalapenos.
Show of hands of how many people have tried my no-rise pizza dough? What? You haven’t made it yet and are still ordering pizza on Friday nights? Well, I know for sure Marisa has made it a lot 😀
Biz’s No-Rise Pizza Dough
- 2 cups flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 package yeast (or 2 1/4 teaspoons loose yeast)
- 1 cup water
Mix flour, salt and yeast. Stir in water with a wooden spoon. Add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of flour on your counter, mix dough until it no longer sticks to your hands.
I had two and 1/3 slices: 676 calories, 63 carbs, 28 protein, 11.1 fat and 4.1 fiber.
Stats for Friday
- 1610 calories, 183 carbs, 86 protein, 59 fat and 9.8 fiber
- 45 minute walk/jog/sprint 5k
Don’t forget you have until tomorrow to submit your BSI pistachio – I am making pistachio gelato tonight, so come back tomorrow to see how it turned out.
In today’s I want that! MaryBeth’s pesto foccacia wedges – she used refrigerated crescent rolls, but they look impressive!
Enjoy your Saturday – I have to clean out gutters today – but I don’t mind because its gorgeous outside today 😀
Great idea to put sliced meatballs on your pizza!! Looks so yummy!! 🙂
I can raise my hand because I’ve made your pizza dough tons of times!!!
Be careful cleaning out the gutters!!
I havn’t had Pizza for soooooooooooo long! I should try and make one!
Pizza made at home is WAY better than delivery! 🙂 YUM! Have a great weekend!
You really eat the most mouthwatering food. It inspires me to step up my own game! 🙂
I really want to make the Wonton Breakfast cups mentioned in this post. Just need a little help.
You wrote: I turned my oven on, put the wonton cups in the oven, and so about 10 minutes in a non-preheated oven at 350.

Did you put the 1 ounce of Swiss cheese, 2 ounces ham, 1 whole egg, 1 egg white and sprinkled with fresh basil into one wonton cup and them bake? or did you fill more than one wonton cup with the mixture? if so how many wonton cups can be made with the indicated amounts of the above ingredients?
Yikes – I guess I wasn’t very clear on the instructions! Sorry about that!
I bake the wonton cups in a 12-muffin tin. Since it takes a while for my oven to heat up, I just turned it on, put the wontons in the oven, and in 10 minutes they were done.
I scrambled the eggs, cheese and ham in a separate pan. Then split that up between the 6 wonton cups, then sprinkled with fresh basil.
Hopefully that makes sense! 😀
those won ton cups look so good! they’d make such an excellent party dish! you are so brilliant!
Those wonton cups look amazing!! Might have to add these to my grocery list 😀
cleaning the gutters?!?! i don’t envy you for that, but that pizza looks great!
A party just for me? lol …I wish 🙂 Sorry I’ve been MIA.
I liked your last comment on my blog. Think I will give that a try starting Monday.
I’ll have a surprise for you in my e-mail so don’t peak at my blog!
That is a great brunch recipe! Guests would totally be impressed- plus I love individual servings of anything. Beautiful pizza as well. Hope you’re having a nice weekend
Love the meatballs on the pizza! I have tried to find that chipotle tabasco but can’t find it. They seem to have a TON of different kinds, but no chipotle.
I have never made pizza dough. I so should though! Yours certainly seems simple enough.
pizza partaaay! i tell my hubby all the time that i want to adopt this idea. i need to stop talking and just do it!
aaaah! No! I just came back from the Korean market and I see this GORGEOUS idea of wonton cups and I forgot to buy wonton wrappers!
Oh well. Will make a trip back tomorrow. 🙂
Great recipe! I am so glad that there is a pizza dough that doesn’t have to sit for a long time to rise! This would be perfect on a school or work night! 🙂
i never make homemade pizza, its such a shame. in general i dont really have pizza, also a shame! i DO like it tho, just never get a huge craving for it (haha also another huge shame) geez.. but i can assure you that if i ever get to maknig a homemade pizza i will be following your crust recipe 🙂
Those wonton cups are awesome. This is a must for Christmas brunch. Thank you [and thanks for clarifying it – I was wondering too :)] The pizza dough looks awesome – I am wondering if I could split the flour half white and half wheat and get the same results…..hmmmm, must try. And who makes the meatballs at your house – they look soooooo good. YUM.
Hope you have a great week.
Yep – I’ve done both – half and half of whole wheat and half all purpose, and I’ve also done all whole wheat. I made the meatballs – wasn’t sure how they would turn out with just using all Italian sausage but they were delicious!
boy would I sure like to come to one of your pizza parties – and you know what – I still havent tried egg on a pizza yet!
Wow…6.8 mph! Impressive!
I love those little egg cups… they sound great!
