As unhealthy as it is for you, there’s one thing that I used to really enjoy a McDonald’s Sausage McMuffin (that is before I started on my healthy lifestyle change). Eggs, sausage, cheese, English muffin and cheese – quite a great design for a yummy sandwich. Sadly, the greasiness of a sausage mcmuffin at McDonald’s or even at a diner is too heavy and fatty on my stomach. So I’ve learned to make things in a healthier manner. I do switch this sandwich up depending on what’s available in the house. I’ve been known to switch the meat choices up with turkey sausage, turkey bacon, Canadian bacon, deli ham or just eliminating the meat all together. Whereas for the eggs I usually go with seasoning with salt and pepper – but I have been known to add sautéed peppers (and onions if available) into the eggs to make them southwestern-y.
To make this 6-Points Plus Value sandwich, I used 1 Light English muffin (2 points plus value), 1/3 cup Eggbeaters (1 pointsplus value), 1 frozen turkey sausage patty (1 pointsplus value) and 1 slice fat free American cheese (1 pointsplus value).
I toasted the English muffin in the toaster and spritzed a glass bowl with Pam and added in my eggbeaters, sprinkled with salt and pepper and microwaved for 1 minute. I scooped the egg away from the bowl and microwaved for 45-60 seconds (until all egg was cooked and not liquidy). I then wrapped my sausage in a napkin and microwaved fro 1 minute. After that I just assembled my sandwich and enjoyed – so delicious!
