Morning Waffle Sandwich

I was channel surfing yesterday and came across a show on the Cooking Channel called Hungry Girl.  Let me back track for a minute here.  I am coming off a 21 day Daniel Fast that I did with my church.  For 21 days I had no meat, dairy, animal product, sugar, white flours, stuff like that. The only beverage I had was water.  By yesterday, I was so ready for some food.

So back to Hungry Girl.  It’s a show hosted by a lady around my age, who teaches you how to cook/shop low-fat and low-cal. I can get into that since I just lost 20 lbs and want to keep the weight loss momentum going.  This episode featured a breakfast sandwich called the Morning Waffle Dip (I left the dip out of my sandwich. I personally don’t like to dip egg sandwiches into maple syrup).  I knew that was what I wanted for my first post-fast meal.  It was soooo good!

Basically the sandwich is egg beaters, bacon and fat free cheese stuffed between two toasted multi-grain waffles.  Easy!  I was a little sketch about the egg beaters, but they were good, real good.  On the show, she had a small serving of sugar-free maple syrup to dip your sandwich into if you so desire.

Supplies:

  • 2 whole-grain or multi-grain waffles, toasted
  • 1/2 c egg beaters
  • 1 slice thick cut bacon, fried
  • 1 slice fat-free American Cheese

Fry up your bacon and set aside on a paper towel to absorb any grease.  Microwave your egg beaters in a microwave safe bowl for a minute on high. Stir, then cook for another minute.  Toast your waffles.

Place the cheese on a warm waffle, layer the eggs then bacon. Top with other waffle and slice in half.  For under 300 calories, this one is definitely a keeper. Enjoy!

*Update on Jeff:  He did 4 months of Carbo/Taxil that seemed to work and shrunk his tumors down to the size of a pea. The day after New Years we were told it had stopped working.  We prayed for Jeff to get the new melanoma drug Yervoy and our prayers were answered.  He stared Yervoy Jan 16th.  Jeff’s body isn’t taking to it so well and is experiencing every side effect possible.  He wound up in the ER with a urinary tract infection and a possible case of hepatitis.  He has an MRI  tomorrow evening to see if the tumors in his spine are pinching nerves causing him the severe back/leg pain he is having.  He has been laid up in bed going on 4 weeks now.  He may not get to continue with Yervoy (his last saving grace).  I will be praying HARD that Jeff gets to continue with Yervoy (his other option is nothing, wait it out until he needs hospice).  So if you are a believer, say a prayer for Jeff.

CSA Scramble

I’m really starting to get into this concept they call breakfast.  I love the alone time I get when I cook breakfast. No phones, no kid’s friends in and out, no noise period. I love it.  I use this time to meditate, introspect and yes, pray.  There is a lot on my plate right now (excuse the pun hehe) and cooking has been soothing my soul.

This morning I decided to clean out the refrigerator.  I had some left over Canadian bacon, some left over potatoes that were in my prior week’s CSA box, some mozzarella cheese, and 2 lonely tortillas.  Add in some farm fresh eggs, onions and peppers from my awesome CSA box and Jeff and I had one heck of a yummy breakfast.

It’s a little difficult to put measurements to this recipe since I used up what I had for left overs, but I’ll do my best.

Supplies:

  • 4 eggs
  • 2 slices mozzarella cheese, diced
  • 1 bell pepper, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 slices Canadian bacon, diced
  • 10 small red potatoes, precooked and cut in half
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • S & P to taste
  • 2 tortillas

In a large skillet sautee peppers and onion in olive oil until they just start to turn soft.  Add potatoes and Canadian bacon and cook until heated through.

Crack eggs over ham/potatoes/veg and scramble everything together.  Add cheese and toss until cheese starts to melt and eggs are cooked to your liking.  Add salt and pepper.

Place on top of a warm tortilla and enjoy!
