Healthy Breakfast Sandwich

When you need a quick, but hearty breakfast before work, a breakfast sandwich is the way to go. While my coffee is brewing, I like to make myself a breakfast sandwich to help me get my day off to a good start. This sandwich is super easy, good for you and – in my opinion – pretty darn tasty.
1 sandwich thin (I use Oroweat multigrain)
1 slice of Hormel Natural Choice deli meat – ham or turkey works (contains no nitrites or nitrates)
1 slice non-fat sharp cheddar cheese (I use the Kraft Singles brand)
1 egg white
Separate the egg white and cook to your preferred doneness. (Sometimes I feel bad for discarding the yolk, but I don’t need it for anything, so I just toss it.) Add the meat, egg white and cheese to the sandwich thin and microwave for 20-25 seconds to melt the cheese. (You can also put it in a toaster oven, but to save me time, the microwave is my appliance of choice.)
That’s it! The sandwich has approx. 160 calories, 2g fat, 5g fiber, 7g protein.
