Super Light Western Egg White Sandwich with a side of Green Peppers

3 WWPP Posted by 3 years ago 3 Comments

So I’m a little breakfast nutty at the moment. Little Bean LOVES eggs and I find myself cooking them more and more.

This morning I decided to go super light (after last nights chocolate overload) and it was totally satisfying for just over 100 calories!

The trick to making this sandwich is using a mini egg pan designed for one egg (like this one.) It’s almost the same size of a sandwich thin making a small folded egg (or egg whites) the perfect filling for a half sandwich.

Here’s what I did…Super Light Western Egg White Sandwich with a side of Green Peppers

  • small slice of onion diced
  • 1/2 green pepper cut into strips
  • 1/2 oz deli ham cut into small squares
  • 2 egg whites (or about 65g of egg white from the carton)
  • Kosher Salt and Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/2 of a whole wheat sandwich thin

Heat the small pan over medium and spray with a bit of non-stick cooking spray. Add the onion.

Dice 1-2 strips of the green pepper. Add them and the cut up ham to the onion.

You know me and my ketchup! ;)

Flip the egg and cook for one last minute. Then add it to the “bun.”

The egg fits and hangs over just a little but it’s still a perfect pickup breakfast.
