This sounds like actual heaven~ "An egg sandwich is a perfect post-workout breakfast. There’s protein in both the yolk and the white of an egg, and this recipe uses a combination of the two to boost protein while keeping calories and fat under control. Eggs also contain zinc, which aids in metabolism and immunity, and vitamin B12, which supports cell production. Cheese and fresh veggies round out this meal to restore tired muscles and recharge your energy stores. Ingredients 2 tablespoons fat-free milk 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 6 large egg whites 3 large eggs Dash of hot pepper sauce Cooking spray 1 cup finely diced red bell pepper 3/4 cup prechopped onion 4 sourdough English muffins, split 1/2 cup (2 ounces) shredded smoked mozzarella cheese 1 1/2 cups bagged baby spinach leaves Preparation Preheat broiler. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk until combined; set aside. Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add bell pepper and onion; sauté 4 minutes or until tender. Reduce heat to medium. Pour egg mixture into pan; let egg mixture set slightly. Tilt pan; carefully lift edges of omelet with a spatula to allow uncooked portion to flow underneath cooked portion. Cook 3 minutes. Wrap handle of pan with foil; place pan under broiler. Broil 1 minute or until set and lightly browned. Arrange muffin halves in a single layer on a baking sheet. Sprinkle muffin halves evenly with cheese, and broil 1 minute or until cheese begins to brown. Divide omelet into 4 portions; place 1 portion on bottom half of each muffin. Top evenly with spinach leaves; top with remaining muffin halves."
I feel like this would fill me up for the whole day!
I woukd eat this without the English muffin, that would be way to filling for me! Maybe half a banana instead?
@nisfit thinking about it is already making me so full but then again it just sounds so irresistible... maybe i should give it a try tomorrow after my work out!
I love egg salad sandwiches and I love omelettes but the idea of putting my omelette in a sandwich never even occurred to me. this is a great recipe
@nokcha good idea!
