Filling
1 frozen meatless or turkey sausage patty with 80 calories or less (like the kind by Morningstar Farms or Jimmy Dean)
1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup diced bell pepper
1/4 cup diced tomato

Omelette
3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
3 tbsp. shredded fat-free cheddar cheese

Optional toppings: diced chives, additional diced tomato

Directions:

Prepare sausage patty and bacon in a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (Refer to packages for cook times and temperatures.) Chop or crumble and set aside in a bowl.

Bring a medium skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, and pepper. Cook and stir until softened, 3 - 5 minutes. Transfer veggies to the bowl with sausage and bacon. Add tomato, stir, and set aside.

If needed, wash and dry skillet. Remove from heat, re-spray, and bring to medium heat. Add egg substitute and let it coat the skillet bottom. Cover and cook until solid enough to flip, about 3 minutes.

Flip egg and top one half with filling. Sprinkle filling with cheese. Cover skillet and cook until cheese melts, about 1 minute.

Fold egg over filling and transfer to a plate. Enjoy!
