I am having a blast trying to come up with lower calorie meals for myself. Here's a super speedy, super satisfying sandwich. I noticed the names of the products I had on hand... "ultra thin" deli slices, "light" cheese, and sandwich "slims", so I thought "Think Thin Breakfast Sandwich" was a good name for this meal. This sandwich comes in at less than 250 calories. The sandwich slims are 100 calories and are available in a variety of brands. We always have Hillshire Farms turkey on hand and really like the mesquite turkey as well as the cracked black pepper turkey shown above. Laughing Cow cheese wedges are much like soft cream cheese, come in a lot of flavors, but we especially like the garlic and herb. (It's very good on baked potatoes).
1 sandwhich thin, toasted
1 wedge Light Laughing Cow Cheese (garlic and herb)
1 egg, scrambled
2 slices ultra thin deli meat
salt and pepper to taste
Toast sandwich thin; with a knife, spread the cheese wedge on the toasted thin (half on the top and half on the bottom).
Scramble the egg and cook in a skillet sprayed with a little olive oil or PAM. Season with salt and pepper.
Add the deli meat to the skillet to warm through. Add the egg and deli meat to the bread to make a sandwich. Enjoy!
It's not really much of a recipe, but it's what I've been making this week.
