Just wanted to share a breakfast and dinner recipe with you. Both are very good. Theses are from the Hungry Girl! Hope you give them a try!
Special Egg in a mug
1/2 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 oz. (about 2 slices) 98% fat-free turkey breast slices, roughly chopped
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light French Onion cheese
Optional: dried minced onion
Lightly spray a large microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Add egg substitute and microwave for 1 minute.
Gently stir and add turkey. Add cheese, breaking the wedge into pieces as you add it. Microwave for 45 - 60 seconds, until set.
If you like, add a little dried minced onion. Give it a light stir, and dig in!

Chicken Cordon Bleu
One 5-oz. raw boneless skinless lean chicken breast cutlet
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese, room temperature
1 oz. (about 3 slices) 97 - 98% fat-free ham slices
salt and black pepper, to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Put chicken in a large sealable plastic bag, squeeze out as much air as you can, and seal. Using a meat tenderizer or a can, carefully pound chicken through the bag until it is about 1/4-inch thick. Remove chicken from the bag, and season to taste with salt and pepper on both sides.
Lay the chicken flat and spread the cheese wedge over it. Evenly layer the ham slices on top of the cheese. Starting with one of the longer sides (or any side, if it's square), tightly roll up the chicken breast cutlet, and secure with toothpicks.
Place chicken roll in a baking dish lined with foil and/or sprayed with nonstick spray, and then cover the baking dish with foil.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Carefully remove the foil covering the dish. Continue to bake (uncovered) for an additional 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through. Enjoy!
