Skinny McMuffin

20130511-101344.jpg

Some days, I want more than Ezekiel bread for breakfast. And some mornings are game days, and I want to fuel up my player with something healthy and satisfying, but not too heavy. These breakfast sandwiches are based on a popular fast food offering, but healthified. They have less fat, less cholesterol, less sodium and more protein than the drive-thru version. I could have these for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are so good. And they are quick. From start to finish, about 5 minutes. For mine, I also add a few pieces of roasted asparagus and some arugula pesto. Ahhhhh, breakfast!

Skinny McMuffin (one sandwich)

Per sandwich: 390 calories and 24.8 grams of protein

  • 1 whole grain English muffin
  • 1 farm egg
  • 1 slice prosciutto
  • 1 slice cheese
  • 1 teaspoon organic mayonnaise
  • Kosher salt and pepper, to taste
  1. In a toaster, toast the English muffin lightly.
  2. Heat a non-stick pan to medium heat.
  3. When muffin is lightly toasted, put on a plate and top one half with the slice of prosciutto. Top the other half with the mayonnaise.
  4. Crack the egg in the pan and cook for about 2 minutes. Flip egg over and top with the cheese, so cheese will melt while egg cooks.
  5. Cook egg 1-2 minutes more and add cooked egg and cheese on top of prosciutto.
  6. Top with remaining muffin half and serve!

  1. Loving the photos, Deanna! The newspaper background in this one is charming šŸ™‚ Why are McMuffins so good? Also — I thought it was hilarious that they started their skinny McMuffin ad campaign right after you posted this!

    • They are totally spying on me šŸ™‚ Glad you like the photo! Trying to do better with the pics, but I usually have hungry people waiting for me to finish with their food so we can eat! I need to plan that better šŸ™‚
