Easy Peasy Breakfast Recipes

HOMEMADE EGG MCSANDWICH

 

Ingredients:

One English muffin (preferably whole wheat and made without high fructose corn syrup)

One Egg

One slice of American cheese (low fat)

One slice of Canadian bacon

Assembly:

Toast one English Muffin

Warm Canadian bacon in microwave for 30 seconds (cover with waxed paper to avoid splatter issues)

Break an egg into a glass and microwave for approximately 30-45 seconds (varies by microwave, so it's best to watch over it)

Cover toasted muffin half with American cheese slice. Place cooked egg on cheese. Top with warm Canadian Bacon slice. Put other English muffin half on the top and, voila, you have a homemade Egg McSandwich.

Variation:

Place an egg in a pan of cool water. When the water starts to boil, Time it for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, toast an English muffin. After 3 minutes, take the egg out, shell it and slice it onto your English muffin half atop the cheese and Canadian bacon. Put on the other English muffin half and you're good to go.

Note:

A hard- or soft-boiled egg, as prepared in the Variation is a great protein snack by itself. Add fiber by slicing it onto a piece of whole wheat toast (again, look for bread that does not have high fructose corn syrup in it).

Add calcium and extra protein by topping all of this with a slice of low-fat cheese.

BREAKFAST "PIZZA"

Ingredients:

One English muffin half, toasted

Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Pizza sauce (preferably one without high fructose corn syrup)

Choose one of the following toppings:

#1

Stir fried veggies of your choice (onions - scallions or yellow onions, chopped, mushrooms, tomatoes, green or red peppers etc.) - about a tablespoon each of three choices of veggies. Skip the cutting board and just slice each one right into a non-stick pan that has been sprayed with a touch of olive oil.

Stir fry on medium for a few minutes.

#2

Canadian bacon, warmed in the microwave

Pineapple chunks

#3

Breakfast sausage cooked according to the package directions (turkey, chicken or veggie sausage is healthiest) and mushrooms. Microwave sausage is the fastest choice.

Assembly:

Make your choice of fillings while toasting your English muffin half. Spread a tablespoon or so of sauce on your muffin. Place the cooked fillings on the English muffin half, top with two tablespoons of shredded mozzarella. Microwave for about 15-20 seconds to melt the cheese.
