I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Healthy Egg Mcmuffin

I do like to have an egg mcmuffin but I really don't like all the calories that goes with it (about 216 calories).   This is a nice alternative.  I also like to add a piece of canadian bacon or turkey sausage on it.


EGG MCMUFFIN
(serves 2)

Ingredients
*2 eggs
*1 teaspoon white vinegar
*1 wholewheat sandwich thin, split
*1/2 cup spinach
*2 slices tomato
*1/2 cup sharp-cheddar, reduced fat cheese
*salt & pepper to taste
*mustard (optional)


Directions:
~Pre-heat oven or toaster oven to broil.
~Bring a skillet of water to a boil.
~Add vinegar to water.
~Carefully add eggs to water.
~Allow to cook in low-boiling water for 3-5 minutes (depending on how well you like your eggs cooked).
~While egg is cooking, lightly toast sandwich thins.
~In a small skillet, lightly sauté tomatoes for 2-3 minutes.
~Once bread is toasted, put toast in a oven-safe skillet or pan.
~Sprinkle cheese over toast.
~Put under broiler for 30-50 seconds, or until cheese has just started to melt.
~Remove from oven, top with spinach leaves, tomato slice & egg.
~Sprinkle with salt & pepper.
~Add mustard to top, if desired.


Variations:
`Add a 2 oz slice of canadian bacon to each muffin between the tomato & egg.  (calorie count will go up to about 230)
`Use both slices of sandwich thins for each sandwich (calorie count will go up to about 265 calories).
`Add turkey sausage to each (375 calories)
