I’m sitting here with my Skinny Caramel Macchiato Coffee made with freshly ground coffee beans……..ahhhh. Perfect way to start the day at 6:45am! Thank goodness for Coffee House International creamers (I just wish they would venture out and make more than 2 flavors)! Anyway I have been urged to put up my Morning Sandwich recipe. It really is not a recipe per-say but more of an idea and you can change things up the way you or your family would like.
As I was perusing the aisles in Sams Club recently I found a package of Ciabatta Rolls. I was sure they would be extremely high in fat but to my surprise 1 roll was only 1.5 grams! My mind started racing of all the great things I could make with these rolls. I do a lot with bagels so this was going to be a nice change for my taste testers. I decided to take some egg beaters and fry 1 1/2 (about 1/3 cup) in a frying pan with some spices. I cook them on low so they will puff up and just before the eggs set up I put some no fat cheese all over the center of the egg mixture. I then fold the eggs in half and finish cooking them.
A couple of weeks ago in one of my favorite stores I found Canadian Bacon that was 97% (or so) fat free, basically the math comes out to 1.5 grams in 4 slices of the Canadian Bacon – now that is a good deal! Well I didn’t want to just put my egg omelet on a plain roll even if it was a Ciabatta, so I looked in the cupboard and found a package of dry Pesto. I use this always so I make sure I have lots of packages ahead but you need to make sure that you do not add the oil that is suggested. I only add about 1/2 of the water so you still have the great Pesto taste. Well I mixed up the Pesto, spread it on both halves of the Ciabatta roll, placed half of the egg omelet and placed the Canadian Bacon slices on the top/bottom of the sandwich. To top it off I had a hybrid tomato so I very thinly sliced the tomato and put that on the sandwich too. YUMMMMM
The entire sandwich is only 3 grams of fat! Can you believe that???? I hope you enjoy this Morning Sandwich as much as my friends at the Q did and all the other taste testers!!!!
