CHEW THE RIGHT THING
HG's Alternate Ultimate Omelette
Om' Nom Nom!
The first step to starting off 2012 right? Starting your DAY right! Eating a protein-packed breakfast will fuel you up and set you up for success. But instead of falling for a fatty restaurant omelette, make this insanely delicious guilt-free one. Tasty morning goodness? This just might be your year...
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
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
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!
