Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes yesterday!!! I successfully completed two goals: I had no cake on my birthday OR my son’s birthday the day before! Cake with frosting is my biggest downfall for sure!
And, normally we get Dunkin Donuts for birthday breakfasts and this year I asked my husband if he could make eggs and turkey bacon and skinny bagels, and so that was my birthday breakfast instead of donuts!
AND I walked to and from work yesterday which is 3 miles. It was in the low 60’s and GORGEOUS!! Too bad today its snowing, but at least we had a beautiful week of warm sunshine!
I was watching Guys Big Bite on Food TV and he made this fantastic looking frittata. One thing I like about weekend mornings, (besides sleeping in) is making a totally deluxe breakfast that I normally don’t have time to make before work.
I kept thinking about that frittata and I figured I could make a healthier version (his had real bacon, tons of cheese, potatoes that were fried, etc…)
I got out my small skillet and put in a few tablespoons of red onion and 2 slices of turkey bacon which I chopped up.
Next I took a potato and cooked it on the baked potato setting in my microwave. Chop that up and add it to the pan.
Then I sprinkled salt and pepper and paprika in the skillet. Add 1 egg with 2 egg whites (which have been beaten) and pour that over the top.
I kind of cooked it like an omelet, just peeling back the sides and letting the uncooked parts spread to the edge. After I thought it was cooked on the bottom, I took a plate and put it on top of the skillet and turned the skillet upside down, and placed the uncooked sides on the bottom of the skillet so that side would get cooked. Here’s what it looked like after I flipped it over:
To finish it off, I added a half ounce of Kerry Gold Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese. It’s only 30 calories and 2 grams of fat per half ounce!.
It was so awesome!! With a great cup of coffee, I got to enjoy a nice healthy breakfast to start my weekend!
AND the nutritional information isn’t too shabby either!!
What healthy breakfasts do you like to make on the weekends?
