These bacon and egg muffins make a great weekend breakfast. Using lean bacon, wholemeal muffins and low fat cheese slices they are lower in fat and higher in fibre and than a McMuffin - yet still hit with the kids!

  • Recipe makes: 1 muffin
  • Calories: 330
    per muffin

Ingredients

  • 1 wholemeal muffin
  • 5 sprays olive oil spray
  • 2 rashers lean back bacon
  • 1 low fat cheese slice
  • 1 large egg

Method

  1. Toast the muffin, and place the cheese slice on the bottom half.
  2. Heat 2 frying pans.
  3. Spray the first pan with 2 sprays Fry Light, add the bacon and fry over a medium/high heat for 2 minutes. Turn and cook for a further 2 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile spray the second pan with 2 sprays Fry Light, crack the egg and fry over a medium heat until starting to set. Lift the egg with a spatula, spray the pan again, flip the egg and fry until the yolk is set.
  5. Layer bacon on top of cheese slice, egg on top of bacon and top with the muffin.
  6. Serve immediately.

Variation: Swap the bacon for a low fat sausage and make an egg and sausage muffin instead  (1 Tesco Healthy Living sausage provides virtually the same calories and fat as the 2 rashers of bacon above)
