"A hearty breakfast."
That's what I would label these open-faced breakfast sandwiches, except when you usually consider something hearty, the word "unhealthy" can be synonymous...not so with this easy breakfast pizza.
How can you make a hearty breakfast healthy? A couple ways...
First, use whole wheat English Muffins to up the fiber and whole grains. Next, add some tomato marinara (vegetables as a part of breakfast!). Third, add some sauteed vegetables, if you think this will fly with your kids (R did kale, G did no veggies). If you're concerned about cholesterol, use egg whites. Then, top with just a touch of low-fat shredded cheese. Last, serve with some fresh fruit.
Voila! Hearty into healthy. Easy breezy.
English Muffin Egg Pizza Breakfast Sandwiches
3 whole wheat English Muffins
1/2 cup tomato marinara or spaghetti sauce
sauteed vegetables (mushrooms, greens, zucchini, peppers and broccoli would all work), if desired
4 eggs or 8 egg whites
pinch of salt and pepper
1/2 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese, if desired
First, toast the English Muffins and place on a oven-safe baking sheet.
Preheat the oven broiler.
Top each English Muffin with a generous 1 tablespoon of marinara, and top with vegetables, if desired.
Scramble the eggs in a saute pan, sprinkling with a dash of salt and pepper, and then top each English Muffin with 1/6 of the eggs and then a generous tablespoon of cheese, if using.
Place under the oven broiler for 3-4 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with fruit and breakfast is served!
You just served yourself or your family a breakfast* to start your day off right!
Life is sweet,
*Also wonderful when "breakfast for dinner" is on the menu.
