A super-quick breakfast sandwich!
Starting your morning off with a good breakfast that contains fiber, protein and even some carbsis crucial to fueling your day. The easiest way to do that? A super-quick breakfast sandwich! Mix and match ingredients to your liking to make the perfect breakfast sandwich for you!
1-minute Breakfast Sandwich
- 2 slices of whole wheat/grain or sprouted bread, or pita or English muffin
- Cooking spray (I recommend olive oil spray)
- 2 tablespoons fat-free milk
- 1 thin slice part-skim cheese of your choice
- Pinch of pepper
- Optional: A few diced green peppers, onions or mushrooms
Place bread product in toaster set on your desired darkness. Spray a small microwavable bowl with cooking spray and whisk egg, milk and any optional ingredients in the bowl with a fork. Microwave on high for 50 to 55 seconds (until the egg is cooked through). Place egg on paper towel to remove moisture. Place egg on a piece of toast, top with cheese, pepper and second slice of toast. Microwave for 15 seconds to melt cheese if desired. Enjoy!
