Here's somewhat of a change to my blogs... I might just post a personal recipe from time to time.
Poached Egg Breakfast!
This is a simple, quick, nutritional, filling breakfast that's one of my favorites. The best part of the whole thing is that it's only 204 calories (including the coffee). The calories were calculated via SP's Nutrition Tracker.
Here's what it all consists of:
-1 AA egg, poached
-3 Slices Hillshire Farms honey ham (lunchmeat pack-5 per serving)
-1 Ostrom's mushroom, sliced
-1 serving (2 slices) of Oroweat "Light" 100% whole grain bread
-2 servings (10 sprays per) of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray. 10 per slice.
-4 leafs of fresh baby spinach
-1 tsp. yellow mustard
-1 tsp. Tapatio
-Salt substitute (dash)
-Ground black pepper
-3 small strawberries, sliced
In a non stick frying pan add about a half inch of water and a half tsp. of vinegar. Heat until bubbles form in the water on the bottom of the pan. DO NOT BOIL.
Add the egg and allow to cook.
While the egg is cooking toast the sliced bread, spray each with 10 sprays (1 serving each) of "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" (or equivalent). Place one slice of bread on a small plate, buttered side up. Apply some mustard to the piece of bread on the plate, add the spinach, sliced mushroom and slices of honey ham onto the bread and when the egg is cooked to your liking transfer it from the skillet to your piece of bread with the other ingredients on it. Let it sit for about three minutes to warm the ham, spinach and 'shrooms.
Slice the three strawberries and add it to the plate as a side. Season the egg with Tapatio, black pepper and salt substitute to taste (or your preferences, of course).
Serve with the other piece of toast and a cup of coffee.
I've varied the ingredients in the past to include white onions, Kraft White American Cheese, Kraft Light American Cheese, Smoked Turkey slices, etc.
Either way the meal always seems to ring in between 200 and 300 calories.
What a way to start the day, eh?
