1/4 c Egg Beaters
2 slices Canadian bacon
1 slice Kraft fat free American cheese
1 lite whole wheat muffin, toasted
1 T lite buttery spread

Heat pan on medium high heat. Remove from heat and spray with Pam. Return to heat. Add Egg Beaters and reduce heat to medium and use a spatula to keep eggs contained to a small circle while they set and cook. Cook until done. Meanwhile, heat bacon in microwave 30 seconds. Butter muffin and place cheese on hot toasted muffin so it will melt. Add eggs and bacon.

Here’s a quick video to show you how to prep the eggs:

Shepherd’s Pie

All the potato goodness of original Shepherd’s Pie recipes, but using ground turkey instead of ground beef cuts down on a lot of calories and a lot of fat. This one dish meal is definitely a complete meal…very filling !

Salt and pepper to taste
2 lb. ground turkey

1/4 t onion powder
1/4 t garlic powder
1/4 t parsley flakes

1/3 + 1/4 c fat free half and half

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare potatoes according to package instructions. Mash slightly then add chives, butter, 1/3 half and half and ¼ cup Egg Beaters. If they are still stiff, add up to ¼ c hot water.

Add Worcestershire, onion powder, garlic powder and parsley. Reduce heat to low and cover and cook another 6 minutes. Stir and add peas and ¼ cup half and half.

Put turkey and vegetable mix into a deep 9×9 baking dish. Top with potatoes. Bake 20 minutes. Don’t over bake as turkey tends to dry out.

Scrambled Eggs with Cheese (and a side of toast)

This is a great place to mix and match – anything that goes into an omelette can go in here – mushrooms, peppers, onions, ham, etc.

Naked Pumpkin Pie

What’s pumpkin pie without the crust? It’s naked pumpkin pie ! And by removing the crust, you also remove oodles of calories. Serve with a slice of low fat graham cracker if you miss the crunch too much. For 400 calories, you can almost eat the whole pie (Did I say that out loud?) 🙂

Breakfast Wrap DuJour

I mix and match this one all week long. Sometimes Canadian bacon slices are substituted, sometimes shredded low fat cheddar, sometimes mushrooms – pretty much anything you would throw into an omelette works well here.

1 serving
348 calories per serving

1 Smart Delicious Wrap (100 calorie version)
Pam spray
½ cup Egg Beaters
3 slices lean turkey bacon
1 Light Laughing Cow cheese wedge
2 T salsa
¼ c avocado slices
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat the wrap in the microwave for 15 seconds if they have been refrigerated – this helps them to roll better. Cook turkey bacon according to package instructions and set aside. Heat a small frying pan on med high heat. Remove from heat and spray with Pam. Return to heat and add the Egg Beaters to the pan. Add salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium. Scramble eggs until set.

Lay the wrap on a plate and spread the cheese evenly over the wrap. Lay the three slices of bacon in the center (be sure to leave a little room at the bottom for folding). Add the eggs in a strip down the center. Spoon the salsa over the eggs. Fold one side over, fold up a bit of the bottom, then fold the other side over to make a wrapped burrito. Serve avocado slices on the side.
