1/4th of egg bake: 248 calories, 6g fat, 888mg sodium, 9g carbs, 1g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 35g protein -- PointsPlus® value 6*

When you wake up CRAVING a cheeseburger but NEEDING a smart breakfast, this recipe is here to save the day!

Ingredients:
4 slices center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
2 cups chopped spinach leaves
8 oz. raw extra-lean ground beef (4% fat or less)
1/4 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
3 wedges The Laughing Cow Light Creamy Swiss cheese
2 1/2 cups fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup seeded and chopped tomatoes
1/4 cup shredded fat-free cheddar cheese
4 tsp. ketchup
4 tsp. yellow mustard

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray an 8" X 8" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Cook bacon until crispy, either in a large skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.)

Bring a large skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook and stir spinach until just wilted, about 1 minute. Transfer to a large bowl, and blot away excess moisture.

Remove skillet from heat, re-spray, and return to medium-high heat. Add beef and sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and crumble for about 5 minutes, until fully cooked.

Transfer beef to the large bowl. Add cheese wedges, breaking them into pieces, and stir until evenly distributed. Add egg substitute, onion, and tomatoes.

Chop or crumble bacon, and add to the bowl. Mix well, and transfer mixture to the baking pan.

Bake for 40 minutes.

Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Bake until center is firm and cheese has melted, about 10 minutes.

Top each serving with 1 tsp. ketchup and 1 tsp. mustard. Enjoy!
