I am a HUGE fan of breakfasts…I’m talking big Sunday breakfasts that keep you full all day. Now that I’m really paying attention to my diet since starting Weight Watchers last month, those breakfasts have changed. No more eggs and potatoes and bacon, now they’re much healthier (though just as filling) breakfasts. This recipe is one of my favorites! It’s super simple to make and it’s delicious….even the kids like it! And while this Easy Egg Scramble might seem like a splurge, it’s definitely a healthy way to start the day.
Bonus points because it’s Weight Watchers friendly! With the optional Canadian bacon, it’s only 8 SmartPoints! It’s only 7 SmartPoints without the Canadian bacon. If you don’t want the toast, deduct 2 SmartPoints.
Easy Egg Scramble
- 1/2 cup bell peppers, chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
- 1 medium green onion, chopped
- 1 cup fresh spinach, chopped
- (optional) 2 slices Canadian bacon, chopped
- 2 large eggs
- 1/4 cup low fat Cheddar cheese, shredded
- 1 slice whole wheat bread, toasted
- Over medium high heat, saute all the veggies (and Canadian bacon if including) in a bit of olive oil or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter.
- In a small bowl, scramble the eggs, adding salt and pepper if desired.
- Add the eggs to the pan with the veggies and cook the eggs until done.
- Add the spinach, and stir until wilted.
- Place the egg scramble on a plate and top with cheese.
- Serve with the whole wheat toast.
Sometimes I don’t have veggies on hand or don’t feel like chopping up a bunch of veggies, so I’ll just make the scramble with Canadian bacon and spinach. Add some Tabasco and it’s delish!
I love this easy egg scramble because it’s versatile, easy to make and super filling…with or without the toast. Sometimes I even half the recipe when I’m not really hungry and it’s just as filling. And remember, add any veggies that you’d like! Since veggies are free SmartPoints, you can eat as many different ones as you’d like. Try it with feta cheese or leave the cheese out. It’s super versatile to create an easy egg scramble that you’ll love, too.
