Egg White, Avocado and Spinach Superfood Breakfast Sandwich

I adore this popular and healthy breakfast sandwich at Panera. My NEW skinny version is super yummy too! It’s much lower in fat and calories than Panera. For the bagel, I used one of those 110 calorie bagel thins. Below are the directions to cook in a panini maker, George Forman grill or in a pan on the stovetop. Each breakfast sandwich has 277 calories, 10 grams fat and 7 Weight Watchers POINTS PLUS. It has 7 grams of fiber. Enjoy your breakfast!

Egg White, Avocado and Spinach Superfood Breakfast Sandwich

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 7 minutes


Ingredients

1 bagel thin, I used Thomas’ everything bagel or use your favorite, see shopping tip below

2 egg whites

1 large slice of tomato

4 spinach leaves

¼ avocado (2 tablespoons) 

1 slice (¾ ounce) Jarlsberg lite Swiss cheese or your favorite reduced-fat cheese

Mustard

1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter


Instructions

1. Preheat panini maker or George Forman Grill.

2. Add egg whites to a small bowl. I used a 4¾ inch glass custard cup. Make sure to cover tightly so the egg whites don’t pop out while cooking. Cook for about 1 minute, 20 seconds.

3. Spread the top and bottom of bagel thin with ½ teaspoon butter on each. Spread inside top with mustard. Spread the inside bottom with avocado. Top with the cooked egg whites. Add the tomato and spinach leaves on the egg whites and top with cheese. Place the top of bagel thin. Cook in panini maker about 3 minutes until golden brown and cheese has melted.

4. To make in a pan on the cooktop: Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Place sandwich in pan. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, turn over, reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Makes 1 breakfast sandwich.


Shopping Tip
Most supermarkets sell Thomas’ bagel thins. My favorite is their everything bagel. All the bagel thins have 110 calories, 1 gram fat and 5 grams of fiber. Or use your favorite brand.
