HG FYI: This recipe calls for Sargento cheese due to its impressively low sodium count. Feel free to use any reduced-fat pepper jack cheese; however, the total sodium may vary.
Here at HG, WE swap until YOU drop... the calorie-packed restaurant items (and the POUNDS!), that is. Who needs fatty breakfast sandwiches with alternatives like this around? It's like the love child of an egg sandwich and a grilled cheese... YUM!!!
Prep: 5 minutes
Cook: 10 minutes
1/2 cup chopped spinach leaves
1 tbsp. chopped onion
1/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 wedge The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
2 slices light bread
1 tbsp. chopped roasted red peppers (previously packed in water)
1 slice Sargento Reduced Fat Pepper Jack cheese
2 tsp. light butter or light buttery spread (like Brummel & Brown)
Spray a medium microwave-safe bowl with nonstick spray. (The bottom of the bowl should be about the size of a slice of the bread.) Microwave spinach and onion for 1 minute, or until spinach has wilted. Blot away excess moisture.
Add egg substitute and cheese wedge, breaking the wedge into pieces. Microwave for 1 minute.
Gently stir, and microwave for 1 more minute, or until set.
Top one slice of bread with the egg patty, red peppers, and cheese slice. Top with the other bread slice. Spread the top of the sandwich with 1 tsp. butter.
Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium heat. Carefully place sandwich in the skillet, buttered side down. Spread the top with remaining 1 tsp. butter.
Cook until bread is lightly browned and cheese has melted, about 2 minutes per side, flipping carefully. Eat up!
