It was super easy to make and this sandwich kept me full ALL morning.
I used Thomas’ lite English Muffin
1 egg “fried” in Pam cooking spray
1 slice swiss cheese
1 breakfast sausage
Here’s the recipe for the turkey sausages:
Turkey Breakfast Patties
Fennel seeds lend zip to these very low-fat, tasty sausage patties
12 ounces lean ground turkey breast
1/4 cup onion grated (my sister Biz won’t add this!)
1/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
2 tablespoons seasoned bread crumbs, low-fat
1/4 teaspoon fennel seeds finely chopped
In a bowl, combine the turkey, onion, egg substitute, bread crumbs and fennel. Shape the turkey mixture into 4 patties.
Coat a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and warm the skillet for 1 minute over medium heat. Add the patties and cook until they are browned and no longer pink, about 5 minutes on each side.
Yield: 4 Servings; Serving = 1 patty

Now you wouldn’t think you were on a diet eating this breakfast!
On another note, did you watch Biggest Loser this week? It always boggles my mind how people who just a few short months ago were huge and here they are running a marathon AND totally kicking my marathon time!!!
When Ada ran it in 4:38 where just 4 months ago she was 70 pounds heavier I could not believe it. And Patrick who was 400 pounds ran his marathon a whole HOUR faster than my time!! Super impressive that they can do that. I was super proud of all of them, especially Elizabeth with her asthma finishing it in 7.5 hours.
So who do you think is going to win Biggest Loser?
I think Patrick is going to do it, although Frado has come a long way too!
