A Healthier Egg McMuffin Option


With the new year and all of the hopes, goals and resolutions, many of us are watching our waistlines. That means no egg mcmuffins for you however, that does not mean you need to feel sad as I have a family favorite that my husband created that is a great substitute.

Our version of the egg mcmuffin contains…..

Healthier Egg McMuffin (Ingredients for 1 sandwich)
2 slices whole wheat bread
1 organic egg
1 slice ham (no preservative, no nitrates/rites added)


1. Place the egg and 1 teaspoon of water in a microwavable bowl. Drape a piece of paper towel over the bowl and microwave on high for 2 minutes (or less if you like runnier yolk).

2. While the egg is cooking, place two slices of bread on your plate and spread some ketchup on one piece (I would have never have thought of ketchup).

3. Place a slice of ham on a piece of paper towel and microwave, maybe 20 seconds to warm.

4. Assemble and enjoy.

Also, feel free to look for and use a low-sodium ham.
