Ingredients

  • 4 ounces feta cheese
  • 1 ?? tablespoons chopped chives
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
  • 6 egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons evaporated skim milk
  • ?? teaspoon salt
  • ?? teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4-1/4 inch thick slices tomato
  • 2 whole wheat English muffins, cut in half and lightly toasted
  • 1 cup baby arugula
  • 2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
  • Cooking Directions

    In a small bowl combine the feta cheese with 1 tablespoon of chopped chives and the chopped basil and set aside.

    Combine the eggs, milk, ?? teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper in a medium size mixing bowl and whisk well to combine.

    Heat 1 tablespoon butter in a medium size saut?? pan over medium heat. When hot, add the sliced tomato and cook for 1 minute per side. Remove the tomato from the pan to a plate and set aside. Using a paper towel, wipe out the pan.

    Return the saut?? pan to medium heat and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of butter. Once the butter has melted, add the eggs to the pan. Allow the eggs to set for 30 seconds, then begin stirring slowly with a heat resistant rubber spatula. As soon as curds begin to form, increase heat to high and instead of stirring, use the spatula to fold the eggs over themselves. Fold in the feta cheese and herb mixture to the eggs and cook for another 45 seconds, or until just warmed through.

    In a small bowl combine the arugula with the remaining salt and pepper and the toss with the olive oil and vinegar.

    Toast the English muffins and place a quarter of the arugula on each muffin half, then top each with one slice of tomato. Divide the eggs between the English muffins and garnish with the remaining chopped chives.

    Serve immediately.
