BEST Healthy Breakfast Sandwich, EVER!!!

The BEST Breakfast Sandwich

For years now I have struggled with what to eat for breakfast. I now understand that it is VERY important to jumpstart your metabolism with a great meal shortly after you wake. The trouble is WHAT TO EAT? Most breakfast items are either full of sugar or fat and egg whites get old after a while! All my breakfast worries ended the day I discovered this goodie! Not only is this SUPER EASY to make it is VERY good and more importantly good for you! Enjoy!!!

What You Need

Bagel thins or sandwich thins (I prefer Thomas 100% Whole Wheat Bagel Thins)
1/3 cup liquid egg whites
Olive oil cooking spray
Sautéed asparagus or broccoli
Mushrooms (optional)
Sliced Swiss cheese
Spicy Yogurt Sandwich Spread-Recipe below

Preparation Instructions

PyrexI like to make things as easy as possible when it comes to preparation of this sandwich. Therefore I like to use a round Pyrex dish and a microwave to make my eggs. I know some of you don’t like to use a microwave, but for ease of preparation it is my preferred method. You can also use a sauté pan. That being said I spray my Pyrex dish with olive oil and microwave for 60 seconds (will depend on the power of your microwave) or until the eggs are stiff but bouncy. Be careful not to overcook! While I am preparing the eggs I turn my oven to low broil and toast my bagel in a conventional toaster. Once eggs are done and bagel is toasted I assemble my sandwich. First put the spread on both sides, then egg topped by asparagus covered with swiss. Place on a baking sheet without top of bagel and place in oven to broil for 15-20 seconds or until cheese has melted. Remove from oven and finish assembly with bagel top, slice in half, and ENJOY!!
