The Skinny Bacon, Egg and Cheese McMuffin

July 12, 2009

When being on a diet it is easy to just stick with the same old stuff day in and day out. I feel like breakfast has become so boring these days, oatmeal, yogurt, fruit. There needs to be a little excitement in one’s diet in order to stick to your plan. Weight loss and diet is a life long change… and I don’t want to be eating oatmeal every morning for the rest of my life!
After passing by McDonalds one morning, I started craving their bacon, egg, and cheese McMuffin, so instead of secretly going through the drive-thru, I decided to make it myself at home.
Here is my favorite Bacon, Egg, and Cheese McMuffin:
– 100 calorie English Muffin toasted
– 1 Fat Free Cheese Slice
– 1 strip of turkey bacon
– ¼ cup Egg Whites or Egg Beaters
– In order to cook the eggs so that they fit perfectly in my McMuffin I throw them in a coffee mug and
cook them in the microwave for a few minutes. Scooping the egg out of the cup gives you a perfectly
round egg that doesn’t

Calories: 195 calories
Fat: 3.5g

Voila… a Bacon, Egg and Cheese McMuffin with half the calories and nowhere near the fat.

Say good-bye to McDonald’s this morning and go make your breakfast this morning exciting. . . cook yourself a McMuffin

    I used to eat the sandwich all the time! Yumm-o! It’s also delicious with a veggie “sausage” patty!

    My brother told me last night that our McDonalds is open 24 hours now. Nooooo! He wanted me to drive him over so he could try get one of these at 3am. I’m definitely going to make the alternative now! This is great!
