Being a skinny girl doesn't mean you have to be a hungry girl.

Get a taste of how delicious low cal can be by trying out her Eggs Benedict recipe below.


  • 1/2 light English muffin
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 slice extra-lean ham
  • 1 tablespoon fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon Hellmann's/Best Foods Dijonnaise
  • 1 teaspoon light whipped butter or light buttery spread, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon lemon yogurt (or plain yogurt with a squirt of lemon juice)
  • Cooking Directions

    To make sauce, combine mayo, Dijonnaise, butter, and yogurt. Set aside.

    Crack egg gently into a small dish and set aside.

    Fill a medium pot with 2 inches of water and bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower temperature until a steady (but very low) boil is reached.

    Gently pour egg into the pot and allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes (3 for a runnier egg, 5 for a very firm one), or until egg white is mostly opaque. Carefully remove and plate egg with a spatula. Use a paper towel to soak up any excess water.

    Heat ham and muffin (toast muffin, if desired). Microwave sauce for about 20 seconds and stir (add more water for thinner sauce).

    Top muffin with ham and egg.

    Cover with sauce and enjoy!
