Eggs and Tomato Breakfast Melts



I'm in love with these easy open faced breakfast sandwiches made on a whole wheat English muffin with egg whites and scallions, then topped with heirloom tomatoes and melted cheese - mmm!


Tomatoes, eggs and scallions are always a winning combination for me - especially now when summer tomatoes are at their sweetest! If you can't find heirloom tomatoes, red grape tomatoes or cherry tomatoes would be just as great.

  5. This sounds like dinner tonight for the kiddos and me! Question Gina - how many WW points would this add per serving if I used 4 whole eggs and 4 egg whites?

    1. I think it would increase it by 2 points each.

  21. These look so amazing, Gina! What a perfect protein & fiber-packed breakfast :)

  22. These were fantastic! 8 egg whites is a lot for a small container of Egg Beaters to handle though - in the future, I'll get the much larger container so I can make more of these! Served up one for each of us with some Simply Potatoes hash browns on the side. One of my favorite breakfast meals now!

  23. Delicious breakfast! I made it for my fiance in 15 minutes this morning. Perfect way to start the day.

  24. Made these. They were easy and awesome. I love the crunch of the english muffins and the creamy cheese and the burst of flavor from the warm but not too hot tomatoes. Changed it up a bit with sourdough english muffins, whole eggs, fresh spinach, and roma tomato instead of cherry tomatoes. I LOVE your pictures though and your ideas are awesome. I know its not super healthy but I am going to try it again with bacon. Bacon and tomatoes :) My three yr old loved eating it with his hands. Linked my blog back to yours to make sure you get credit for the recipe. Thanks!!!

    1. I, too, love warm but not too hot tomatoes! They were perfect in this recipe. I like your idea of adding bacon although I'll use turkey bacon and will definitely be using roma tomatoes fresh from the garden this summer!

  25. Another tasty, quick and easy recipe! I made one of these for myself this morning with just a few substitutions. I used Pepperidge Farms Oatmeal bread lightly toasted. I also used Sargento's lowfat Pepperjack cheese as I didn't have the Monterrey and added a few leaves of fresh cilantro. What a great way to start out a Sunday morning. I love skinnytaste recipes.
