Submitted by: NATALIEMARKIS

Introduction

I hate mornings and usually the only thing that can get me going is a McDonald's breakfast biscuit. Here's our healthy substitute! 1/3 less calories, 1/2 the fat, 1/3 the sodium, 1.5x the fiber, 4.5x the protein, 25% less carbs, and ONLY 10% OF THE CHOLESTEROL! McDonald's foods are full of trans-fats! This stuff can be deadly! If you love a breakfast sandwich like I do, you have to try this. Guarantee this will keep you feeling full longer and will taste better with all these gourmet ingredients.

Ingredients

    1 slice (1 oz) lower-sodium Canadian bacon
    1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
    1 light multigrain English muffin, toasted
    1.5 oz fresh spinach (about 1 c packed)
    3/4 oz slice low-fat, low-sodium Swiss cheese

Directions

1. Microwave bacon slice per package directions.

2. Heat oil in small nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg substitute and heat until edges begin to set, about 1 minute. Lift edges to allow any liquid egg to flow underneath, about 1 minute longer. When almost set, gently fold omelet in half and in half again. Transfer to bottom half of muffin and top with bacon.

3. Return pan to heat, add spinach, and cook, stirring until wilted, about 1 minute. Place spinach on top of bacon, season with freshly ground black pepper, add cheese, and top with other muffin half.

Number of Servings: 1

  • I make this too but you can save some fat and calories - skip the EVOO and use non-stick cooking spray in a non-stick pan, 2 thin slices of deli ham instead of the can. bacon and fat free cheese. So you have eng. muffin (100), egg beaters (40), ham (30) and FF cheese (30) = 200 calories! - 10/31/08
