Skip the McMuffin. Make a Healthy Breakfast Sandwich



Looking for a breakfast that will actually keep you full? Something that tastes good and is easy to make? Try my healthy breakfast sandwich! Being a huge fan of the McMuffin, I wanted to make something that tasted good, but was better for my health. By using whole wheat bagels and a poached egg, this simple recipe is full of protein and fiber, and will help keep you full until lunch time.

Serves 1


  • 1 whole wheat bagel
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice of cheese
  • 1 slice of ham or turkey bacon
  • salt & pepper to taste

Directions: Put your bagel in the toaster and start poaching your egg. If you would like some tips about how to make the perfect poached egg, I will be posting a how-to video soon! When your bagel is done, lay your cheese over one side to help it to melt. Cook your turkey bacon or sliced ham in a separate pan. (This should be easy since both are usually pre-cooked, you are just warming these up). Place the ham or turkey bacon on the other slice of bagel. When your egg is poached, salt and pepper it to taste, and sandwich it in the middle. (This is important if you like your eggs runny. If you put your egg on the very top or bottom, it will squirt and get messy real quick.) Grab a few napkins just in case, and enjoy!
