We all know the McDonald’s Egg McMuffin. Did you know they have a lighter version? They do. Guess what, you can make this lower calorie cousin right now with this copycat recipe.
What do I like about the McDonald’s Egg White Delight? Would it be that you can get a pretty filling breakfast because it has just 250 calories in this breakfast delight. Egg Whites are low in calories and they can be very filling. The wheat English muffin has a little more fiber in it to also help make this more filling. When you make this at home, you can recreate this copycat recipe too, and save yourself some money.
I hate to say it, but I often grab breakfast out in the morning. I am generally in a rush to get to work, and get out the door. I can make coffee first thing in the morning, and well honestly that’s about it. So I like to make breakfast on the weekends and then reheat it when I am in a hurry. This way I can save some money every day.
For this recipe you will need egg whites, you can use regular eggs and save the yolks for another recipe, or you can buy egg whites in a carton and cook those up. You will need some Canadian bacon, if you don’t have any use another lean protein. You will also need some white cheddar cheese. With just these four ingredients you will soon be on your way to a lower calorie and filling breakfast.
