HG's Bacon-Cheddar Egg Mug (184 calories, 7g fat)

Average 3-egg bacon & cheese omelette (600 calories, 40g fat!)


An average omelette -- not even a huge one - has 600 calories - thanks to butter -- oily cheese and fatty bacon. And that's without toast or potatoes! This one is slimmed down with egg substitute --reduced fat cheese and lighter bacon.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
  • 3/4 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 3 tbsp. shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese
  • Optional topping: ketchup
  • Cooking Directions

    Microwave bacon on a microwave-safe plate for 1 1/2 minutes, or until crisp. In a large microwave-safe mug sprayed with nonstick spray, microwave egg substitute for 1 1/2 minutes. Chop or crumble bacon and stir into egg. Microwave for 45 to 50 seconds, until mostly set. Mix in cheese. Microwave for 20 seconds, or until set, and stir. Enjoy!
