Craving Egg Sandwiches?

I know I was this morning.

Those buttery English muffins filled with a whole fluffy egg and topped with pounds of melted cheese and surrounded by that greasy delicious bacon…

And worth about half of my day’s intake of calories and fat.

That is the reason why I came up with my own “skinnified” version.

Skinny Egg Sandwich

1 Rice cake
1/4 Cup Egg Beaters
1/4 Cup Cheese (I used sharp cheddar because it was leftovers from the baked potatoes we had last night but I would recommend mozzarella for a healthier version)
1/4 Cup smushed grape tomatoes

1. Cook the eggs to desired consistency and shape to the rice cake’s perimeter (so it won’t be awkwardly hanging off)
2. Top onto rice cake
3. Melt cheese on top and finish off with the tomatoes
4. Voila! Your breakfast filled with a warm filling egg and freshened with the juice of the tomatoes!

Enjoy! I know I did.

I dare you not to smile after your first sip. I dare you.

Yeah. I know. Frowning is not an option.

Everything is pretty much an estimate. There is no certain measurement… it’s all about what you desire! Have fun with it and comment below!
