This open-face breakfast sandwich is one of my go-to breakfasts. It's delicious, easy and keeps me happy for a few hours! It's a great pre-workout meal in the morning. The secret in this dish is the lite Laughing Cow Cheese and the Everything But the Bagel Seasoning (see note below).  The seasoning really makes the sandwich, and paired with the creamy cheese it's just plain ol' good!

This isn't so much a recipe,  as it is a method. So I didn't create a MFP food log for this, it's just too versatile, and depending on the bread you use, the nutrition is quite variable.

Here's the line up for the sandwich (directions in recipe below):

-1 slice toast

-2 servings egg whites (from a carton)

-1 large whole egg

-1 wedge laughing cow cheese

-everything but the bagel seasoning (trader joe's) or make your own seasoning

-optional breakfast meat (Candian bacon is a favorite low fat, low carb and high protein choice)

Here's the macro's for everything but the optional breakfast meat (logging Dave's Killer Bread):

Calories 284   C 24 g  F 10 g  P 23 g

(add a serving of Canadian bacon and add ~70 cal C 0 g F 1.5  P 12 g)

Hope you enjoy this quick and easy macro friendly breakfast sandwich as much as I do! It's a winner!

Macro Friendly Breakfast Sandwich {Quick & Tasty}

Macro Friendly Breakfast Sandwich {Quick & Tasty}
Prep Time 3 minutes
Cook Time 3 minutes
Total Time 6 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 slice bread, toasted
  • 2 servings egg whites (6 tablespoons = 10 g protein)
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons water
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
  • 1 wedge light Laughing Cow Cheese wedge
  • Everything but the Bagel Seasoning, to taste

Instructions

In a small bowl whisk egg white and egg with the water and salt & pepper. Whisk vigorously; this incorporates air into the egg mixture and makes a fluffy egg for topping the toast. In a medium/large size skillet heat over medium or medium-low and lightly grease with cooking spray. Once the skillet is heated, pour egg mixture on. Let it cook for a minute or two until it's cooked enough to fold up the sides. Fold sides in as it cooks so you get a square/rectangle (the prefect shape for topping your toasted bread). Flip and cook it on the other side until it's cooked to your liking.

Toast the slice of bread and spread it with the laughing cow cheese, sprinkle with the seasoning, top with the cooked egg and enjoy!
