Good Morning Sunshine Breakfast Sammies (4)

My sweetie loves breakfast, to say the least, and I had to chuckle the other day when he commented that "You make the best breakfast sandwiches ever", because he's often one to foo-foo at anything "good for you". He's supportive of ME and my changing of eating habits but he's slow to accept you can "eat well" and still have flavor. The funniest part is, the part he loves MOST about my breakfast sammies are my Arnold's Sandwich Thins!

Anyone who is eating healthy knows that the Arnold's Sandwich Thins® are the answer to many prayers of "we need to have bread, please, without all the fat & calories". Arnold's now has so m any "flavors" that my cart's usually loaded with 2 of each (rye, whole grain & white) with each trip to the grocery store! If you're a "Weight Watcher®" you know that one Arnold's Sandwich Thin counts as only 1 point! I'm sorry, but for bread and bread with flavor & substance... this is just short of a miracle item!!!!!!

Here's a quick & easy recipe for my breakfast sammies.... make changes as you desire, but always make the changes points® wise!
Good Morning Sunshine
Breakfast Sammies (4* or 5 w/meat)

Serves 1

Basic Sandwich (4)

1 Arnold's Sandwich Thin, toasted (I usually use the white but go for different flavors!) (1)
1 egg, fried hard
(fry egg w/pam in teflon pan so as not to add any calories/points) (2)
1 slice 2% sharp cheddar cheese (1)

*1 slice meat {choose meat & add points accordingly: some examples I've used 1 oz. lean ham, grilled with my egg (1), 1 slice Canadian bacon grilled (1), 2 slices turkey or center cut bacon (1), 1 oz. turkey breakfast sausage - not easy to find - grilled (1) or even a few slices of turkey pepperoni (I use about 4 slices & it comes out to 0 pts) }

Each ingredient is cooked & then placed together between the toasted Arnold's Sandwich Thins® for a 4-5 point® delicious treat! Using egg substitute reduces the sandwich by 1 point® also (but I can't usually slip this by my sweetie too often unless I scramble the egg substitute with some meat)

I place my cheese on the sandwich thin as soon as it pops out of the toaster, then place the hot egg on top of the cheese. It will melt on it's own.

Other options:
  • add grilled veggies (onions & peppers) - especially great when using egg substitute
  • use left over meatballs as a meat or 1/2 slice/muffin of my diner meatloaf muffins = to 1.5 pts.® with a little ketchup!
  • remember if you go meatless you save points® also - 4 pts w/o meat
  • use egg substitute to save 1 pt - then you can add your meat w/o adding points!

*Note I am not affiliated nor endorsed by Weight Watchers® at all, in any way. I highly recommend their program and cannot say enough GOOD about it, but I also have decided that they were my "stepping stone" to making a change in my lifestyle. Any mention of Weight Watchers®, their program or their term of "points®" does not mean they have approved, seen, or endorsed anything on my blogs.

Also, if at any time Points® are mentioned it is always with the assumption that you will analyze the recipes, foods, ingredients and figure the points out specifically for your consumption of any product, as ingredients may vary by brand, size, etc.

  1. Yum, that sounds good - I may have to try a version of that in the morning. Good thing I already have the Arnold's in the pantry...
