Apple Cinnamon Pancakes

Sunday Morning breakfast can be quick and easy, and that s what I need some mornings! I always use this pancake Krusteaz because its low fat and high fiber as well, with a nice blend of whole wheat and white flour…Plus no one notices the difference 🙂

This AM I added in a snack pack size  of natural no sugar added applesauce and 1 tbsp cinnamon, and made them on the stove top. I chopped up a large beautiful Gala apple and cooked it for about 8 in on high with 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp brown sugar ,1 tbsp  cinnamon and added 1/4 cup of raisins . Placed on top of the pancakes and drizzled lite maple syrup on top…:) Lets just say the kids devoured it and actually enjoyed the cooked apples. As did my husband and I. Happy Sunday!


Egg White Breakfast Burrito

Another “Do-Over” recipe this morning! Waste not, want not! Couldn’t let this all go to waste from the other nites Cubanelle Stuffed Peppers..So I heated the mixture in the pan and then added in 5 egg whites and 1 egg beaten, scrambled it..Then topped with 2% cheddar cheese. Placed in Spinach wraps and served Mango Salsa on the side..Very filling, I could barely finish it, but not my husband …he devoured it after adding a little hot sauce to it 🙂

Poached Open Faced Eggwich

So I made these delicious Turkey Swiss Burgers with Mushroom and Onions last nite and there were some leftover shrooms..and i thought to myself wouldn’t that be good for breakfast!

This was so good and low fat!

1 100 cal English muffin toasted

1 poached egg

handful fresh spinach

sliced tomato

my leftover mushrooms and onion from last nite warmed up

(Mushrooms and Onions=  placed 1 container sliced mushrooms and 1 small onion sliced…1 tsp nutmeg,1 tsp thyme, 1tsp fennel seeds, olive oil salt and pepper..Can be done on the stove top or place in a aluminum foil packet~ Cook 10-15 min)

1 slice Canadian Bacon

salt and pepper

Pile the spinach first, tomato, Canadian bacon, sh rooms, and then the poached egg…:) And always a shake or two of hot sauce…

AND!! If your doing Weight myself…this meal was only 5 points 🙂

Eggs in Purgatory

Sunday morning breakfasts are my absolute favorite! I always enjoy making something  special and sitting around the table with my family.

I  have so many to share with you and today’s is Eggs in Purgatory:

Preheat oven to400

Gather a  shallow baking dish

Marinara Sauce ( I use Newman s Own Organic Marinara in a pinch when I’ve run out Nana Jean’s  sauce in freezer)

4 eggs

Parmesan cheese

4  100 calorie English muffins or whole wheat sandwich thin

Pour marinara  into the shallow baking dish. Make 4 little  indents so you can fill with the raw egg. Crack each  egg into the 4  indents. Bake in oven until the egg whites settle…You still want the yolks to be runny. About 5-7 min. In meantime toast english muffins.When eggs done, place them on top of english muffins, sprinkle with cheese (optional red pepper flakes). Enjoy!

Serves 2

I’m using the left over Black beans from last nites Black Bean Turkey Burgers to make this tasty breakfast…

5 egg whites and 1 whole  egg and 1 tbsp of 2% milk

2 whole wheat and low carb tortillas

1 can of seasoned black beans ( cuban style) heat in saucepan

2 wedges laughing cow lite queso cheese

salt and pepper

1/2 salsa of your choice

Beat eggs and milk in bowl and add to pan heated with olive oil on stove top, season with salt and pepper. Add in 1/2 cup of the black beans after the eggs are almost scrambled. Mix together well. Heat up tortillas in oven or microwave. Spread a wedge of cheese on each tortilla, dived up egg mixture between both tortillas. Add 2 tbsp of salsa and roll and fold up!

Breakfast for Dinner: Egg White and Spinach Tomato Frittata

State fruit - Tomato

I love having breakfast for dinner, reminds me of  my childhood when it was Dad’s turn to cook and he made waffles and eggs! 🙂

Egg White and Spinach Tomato Frittata

8 egg whites

1 bag of baby spinach cleaned and dryed

1 tomato sliced thin

1/3 cup fat free creamer

1 1/2 cups of reduced fat shredded mozzerella  cheese

salt and pepper

2 tbsp olive oil

( optional: leeks cleaned sliced and diced, green parts only)

Pre heat oven to 375. Beat egg whites and cream together, set aside. In a large oven safe pan, place on stove top and heat EVOO on medium high. (add the leeks here) Add spinach and just stir around for about 3 min, until slightly wilted. Season with salt and pepper. Add egg white mixture, and incorporate spinach into egg whites and then let it sit on stove top till the edges begin to stiffen and the center begins to form. Top with slices of tomato covering the egg whites and sprinkle with the cheese. Place pan on center rack in oven and cook 10 minutes, or until center rises and stiff. And cheese melted 🙂


**You can use fingerling potatoes as a base in pan. Slice thin and place in pan in one layer covering the bottom with EVOO. Cook for ten minutes. You’ll have to cook the spinach separate and then add to the pan after the egg mixture added to the pan and follow the rest of the steps. So yummy!
