This is a favorite of mine and I have started eating it every evening after my Thrus weigh in at Weight Watchers. I love it becuase it is a nice hot meal, you can fix it quick, and it is low in points and healthy, too. I fix it with a nice hot cup of decaf coffee and have some fruit to balance out the meal. I also usually have the ingrediants around in my refrige, too. Enjoy!

Breakfast Burritos^ -- Lowfat --3 points

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 10 Preparation Time :0:30
Categories : Breakfast

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup Egg Beaters® 99% egg substitute -- equiv to 8 eggs
4 eggs
2 tablespoons water
salt and pepper -- to taste
6 3/8 ounces Healthy Choice Lowfat Breakfast Sausage -- 8
patties- 1 package
1/2 onion -- chopped
1/2 green pepper -- chopped
10 98% Fatfree Flour Tortillas -- 1 bag/Mission brand
1/2 cup shredded lowfat cheese -- *Sargento light
1 Tablespoon butter -- or margarine
cooking spray

Sauté onion and pepper in non-stick pan which has been sprayed with desired flavor of non-stick spray. Add cut up Healthy Choice sausage and stir into vegetable mixture. (No need to cook sausage; it's fully pre-cooked.)

Transfer to a bowl or bag and refrigerate.

Lightly beat eggs and egg substitute with the water. Melt butter or margarine in the skillet that was used to sauté the onions and peppers (or use non-stick spray). When melted, stir in egg mixture.

Cook eggs until almost done, keeping in fairly large curds. Salt and pepper to taste.

Combine eggs and cooled sausage mixture.

Warm tortillas in the microwave. Place about 1/4 cup of the egg mixture in the center of a tortilla.

Top with 1 scant tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese.

Roll tortilla and wrap in waxed paper, tape to seal (label if making more than one kind).

Place waxed paper wrapped tortillas in a zip-lock freezer bag in the freezer.

To heat from freezer:

Cook a single wrapped burrito in the microwave for about 2 minutes on 50% power (or' defrost') (would take longer if you were doing multiples). Then microwave for about 1/2 minute more on full power or until hot. Just peel the paper down as you eat so that all the filling stays in.

I am looking for good WW breakfast egg recipes. I am used to making a big breakfast every Sunday and am looking for good ideas so that I don't have to sacrifice my Sunday morning ritual.

How about an egg beater omelette? You can throw in as many veggies as you like and some cheese and for a few pts you can have a big omelette. Or use egg whites.

I personally don't do this -- but have heard so many people say they do and love it.

You can get lower fat bacon as well. And light bread toast with some butter spray.

Good luck and welcome to 3FC!

Hi Tinkerbelldee ~


I make a yummy and very filling Hashbrown Omelet …here’s what I do:

I brown 1 cup of fat free O’Brian Hashbrown Shreds (1 point) in a fry pan coated with Pam.
When browned, I then add ˝ cup Eggbeaters (1 point)

Cook on top of stove until edges are set, and then put in your oven (on broil) until done.

Crumble 1 cooked Morning Star Sausage Patty (1 point) and add to top of omelet.
Sprinkle with 2 Tbsp. Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1 point).

Total points: 4

That sounds great, I will try that this weekend!

Mock French Toast

3 egg whites (1 pt)
1/4 t. vanilla
1/8 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. Splenda

Beat all ingredients, cook in hot non-stick or sprayed pan. Flip when set. I had a little SF maple syrup on it.

I sometimes make a great low point strata. I don't have the exact recipe. I create it to fit the size pan and amount of people I am feeding.
I use light sourdough (Orowheat, 1/2 point per slice) bread cut into small cubes. Diced lean ham, low fat cheddar cheese, egg beaters and non fat milk. You could also add chopped veggies like onions, peppers and spinach to suit you taste. I often use diced greeen chilies and then serve it with 0 point salsa. You can also substitute another low point breakfast meat for the ham, like low fat sausage or veggie sausage.
So you spray your baking dish with some Pam equivelant. Then fill about 2/3 full with your bread cubes. Sprinkle your ham and low fat cheese over all (and any other vegggies you are adding). Then mix together your egg beaters with your milk in a seperate bowl. I would guess about 1 part egg beaters to 2 parts milk. Stir in a little salt and pepper. Make enough to almost cover your ingredients. Pour over everything. It is great to get to this point the night before and then cover in your fridge overnight. Bake in a medium oven (325 -350) until it is bubbly and browning on top.
Sorry I don't have a more exact recipe. It is easy to figure out the overall points for this depending on your choice of ingredients and serving size. I will serve this for a brunch with fruit salad on the side and it is always a big hit.

In a hankerin' for an omelet this Sunday, I came up with this. The points are actually about 3.5 if you count halves.

Serves 2

2 eggs
2 slices Fat Free Oscar Mayer bologna, diced
2 slices Fat Free Kraft singles, any flavor, each cut into 3 wide strips (I cut mine on the diagonal to have 1 long strip and 2 triangles)
1 - 10 oz. bag of frozen seasoning blend (frozen chopped onions, red & green bell peppers, celery & parsley)
1 - 10 oz. bag of frozen sliced mushrooms
Butter flavored cooking spray

Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Heat pan over med-high heat and add diced bologna. Stir to break up and lightly brown. Add seasoning blend and mushrooms. Stir to break up and cook until most of the moisture is cooked away and vegetables are cooked through.

Spray a small omelet pan with cooking spray. Heat pan over med-high heat. In a small bowl, whisk 1 egg well. Pour egg into hot omelet pan. As egg starts to set up, swirl pan to get more egg around entire pan to make a thinner larger omelet. Reduce heat to medium low. Cover pan for about 1 minute to allow omelet to set up to desired doneness. Lay out cheese strips across omelet. Pour half of veggie mixture along middle of omelet, like a taco. Gently slide omelet onto plate, using pan to fold omelet in half over filling. The heat of the egg and veggies will melt the cheese nicely through out. Serve.

Repeat with second egg.

No time to cook breakfast and clean up? Here is a quick breakfast, I take the fixings to work and can make it there too . . . .

Put 1/2 WW bagel or WW English Muffin in toaster. Whip one egg in a styrofoam cup and microwave about 30 seconds until cooked. Put cooked egg on tasted bagel/muffin, top with a slice of low fat cheese and microwave 10 seconds to melt the cheese.

Points: 4 if you use a Bagel; 3.5 if you use an English muffin

You can also use a slice of Canadian Bacon and add one point for it.

1/2 c. egg beaters (1 pt)
1/4 c. sargento low fat mexican blend cheese (2 pts)

Hi everyone,
I have been eating this breakfast RELIGIOUSLY for the last few weeks, it keeps me so satisfied...and its easy! 3 pts.

I scramble three egg whites with one triangle of laughing cow light in butter spray. Then I add in one crumbled fake sausage patty (boca, morningstar, etc.). I top with salsa (trader joe's salsa especial) and go! Its sooooo delicious. The lc cheese melts down really well in the eggs.

If I have time I saute some mushrooms and spinach and add those in too. Yum!


05-04-2006, 02:51 AM

96% Fat Free Whole Wheat Tortillas
1 Wedge Laughing Cow Cheese
1/4 cup Egg Beaters
1 Egg
1/4 cup Salsa
1 cup raw spinach
1 large mushroom chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste

Ok you take the pam spary and cook the mushroom untill it's soft, then scramble the egg and egg beaters. Then add the laughing cow cheese wedge cut in pieces and the raw spinach. Put mixture in warm tortilla and top with Salsa and salt and pepper to taste. VERY YUMMY and filling.
