Why would any sane person chomp on a McDonald's Egg McMuffin when they could have a practically identical tasting morning sandwich with far fewer of the pesky calories and fat grams that the Micky D's version has? Plus, making HG's lighter and leaner breakfast sandwich is faster and easier than waiting in that drive-thru line.

- 1 regular size Thomas' Light Multi Grain English Muffin (or Western Bagel Alternative English Muffin)
- 1 slice Kraft Free fat free American cheese
- 1 slice Healthy Choice Smoked Ham (or other lean, thin-sliced ham)
- 1 egg white

Simply cook an egg white in a pan using non-stick cooking spray and toast your english muffin. Once toasted, place a slice of cheese on the bottom half of the bread, followed by the egg, a slice of ham, and the top of the muffin. Enjoy!

*HG Tip:  Check out this snazzy egg muffin toaster thingee for sale on Amazon.  It's very cute!

You know that once you start the day off on the wrong foot, it's very hard to get back on track (and super easy to fall into the "my eating day has already been ruined, so I might as well just pig out today and be good tomorrow" trap). That's why you may not want to pick up one (or, um, two) Egg McMuffins for breakfast.  Sure, they're convenient and they taste pretty good.  But that tiny little mini muffin-wich packs in 300 calories and 12 grams of fat (4.5 of them saturated).  Who wants to consume all that first thing in the AM? Besides, this simple morning sandwich is so easy to duplicate at home -- for far fewer calories and fat grams.  So skip the drive-thru, and try HG's EggaMuffin. You won't be disappointed.
