I wake up later on the weekends, so most times I just have brunch, instead of breakfast and lunch.
I was trying to think of what to make, when I thought of making kind of like a Denny’s breakfast slam. Omelet, home fries, ham, and a bagel. BUT, how do you make that healthier? Control and measure the ingredients.
Denny’s All American Slam has 3 egg with cheddar cheese omelet, 2 slices of bacon, 2 links of sausage, hash browns and 2 pieces of toast.
1 medium potato
1/8 cup diced red onion
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 egg, 2 egg whites
.25 ounces pepper jack cheese
3 oz. cubed ham
1 Arnold thin
1 tsp. olive oil
1 pat of butter
To make the potatoes, wash a medium potato and cook in the microwave until done. In a small skillet, I added the 1 tsp. olive oil, 1 pat of butter and added the red onion and garlic. Cut the potato up into bite size pieces, and cook until golden, stirring occasionally. I just added a little chili powder for color and salt and pepper to taste. Once those are done, set aside.
Next, I cracked an egg + 2 egg whites in the skillet to make the omelet. The only thing I added was pepper, because once it was done, I just shredded a touch of pepper jack cheese for flavor.
Once that was done I transferred the omelet to the plate and used the same skillet to warm up the ham.
The calories in my breakfast slam WITH coffee with a little cream and sugar?
603 calories, 22 grams of fat and 34 grams of protein and 8 grams of fiber.
Since this is my breakfast AND lunch, I can fit it into my healthy eating/weight loss plan. Isn’t that awesome?
Just for curiosity’s sake, I checked out IHOP’s breakfasts. If you ordered the ham and cheese omelet ONLY, no sides, it is 870 calories and 60 grams of fat. Now that’s gross!
Enjoy your Saturday!!!!! It’s a balmy 19 degrees out today 🙂
