Skinny Eggs Benedict

Submitted by: MLOM513

Introduction

The cheese gets melty on this skinny spin on the classic, and while it's not quite hollandaise, it will get you through the night, er, morning. The cheese gets melty on this skinny spin on the classic, and while it's not quite hollandaise, it will get you through the night, er, morning.

Ingredients

    1 Light Multigrain Thomas' English Muffin
    2 slices Kraft American Cheese 2% Milk Singles
    2 slices Jones Farm Ham Slices
    2 large eggs
    splash of vinegar

Directions

Bring a small pot of water, to which a splash of white vinegar has been added to a boil. When boiling, carefully break the eggs and drop one at a time into the boiling water. The vinegar will not flavor the eggs, but will prevent them from sticking to the pan and help them stay together while cooking.

While the water is coming to a boil, toast the english muffin, and heat up the ham slices in a small skillet on the stove (they don't respond well to the microwave, so a pan is best.). When the muffin is toasted, put a slice of cheese on each half of the hot muffin, and top with the hot slice of ham (you can also use Canadian bacon). When the eggs are done poaching (they only need a few minutes), place one egg on top of each half of the muffin.

    Great for a quick and healthy replacement to eggs benedict. I omitted the ham as I haven't been eating meat and added a "sauce" of a little miracle whip light with a dab of dijon mustard to give it some flavor since I took away the ham.
    It was wonderful! Thanks for the tip on the vinegar as well. - 8/8/09
