This user generated recipe was submitted through our Recipe Submission page by Texas resident, Bob. Bob describes this sandwich as a “healthy quick and satisfying breakfast.” If you like to wake up to a warm, hearty and filling meal, this recipe is for you! While most breakfast sandwiches aren’t suited for a weight loss plan, this loaded muffin contains some smart swaps to keep you on plan. Bob substituted a whole wheat English muffin in lieu of a high carb and calorie bagel or croissant. This swap cuts down on unnecessary calories and fills you up with fiber. We also recommend using a reduced fat cheese to keep the calories low without sacrificing flavor. If you can find low sodium ham, this would be the best option.
