Introduction

I got this recipe from Trader Joe's but I have altered a couple things to make it a bit healthier and less calories. But it is still a hearty breakfast if you are wanting to have one large calorie meal in the day. The original recipe calls for two morningstar bacon strips, but I have omitted them because they are really high in sodium. The Original recipe also calls for two slices of cheese and less healthy bread. You can also knock the calories down a bit by using the Sarah Lee Wheat Bread, the one with the measuring tape on the label.

Ingredients

    2 Slices Sarah Lee Whole Wheat Bread
    1 Med. Egg (Whichever way you wish to prepare it. I like mine scrambled)
    1 Slice Swiss Cheese (1 oz.)
    1/2 C. Spinach, Fresh
    *2 tsp. Dijon Mustard (any brand you like), 1 Garlic Cove, Minced, and 1 tsp. Kraft Lite Mayonnaise (the recipe calculator wouldn't let me put tsp. for mayo for some reason, but the recipe calls for one tsp.)

Directions

1. Wash, rinse, and dry spinach and put aside.

2. Spray griddle with non-stick cooking spray and cook egg.

3. Toast bread slices on griddle and melt cheese onto one slice.

*4. In a separate small container, mix together dijon mustard, mayonnaise, and minced garlic. Spread mixture onto non-cheesy slice of bread.

5. Add spinach and egg to bread and close into a sandwich.

You can add 2 pieces of soy bacon to this if you want and don't mind the extra sodium. Or if you want to make this a lunch sandwich, you can take out the egg and add more cheese, tofurkey smoked turkey slices, or a soy chicken patty (recalculate nutritional information accordingly).

The original recipe calls for 1 tsp. garlic mustard, but I don't have any of that, so I just added another tsp. of dijon and a minced garlic clove.
