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.

Ingredients:

  • 2 whole grain English muffins, split
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 8 egg whites, whisked
  • 4 scallions, finely chopped

  4. 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?

  13. These look soooo good. I could totally prep the scallions, tomatoes and cheese the night before for a quick breakfast in the morning! I bet they would be great for lunch too! Cannot wait to make these!

  15. 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!

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

  17. 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.

  18. would these be good to freeze and reheat later? I am looking for something I can make ahead and just eat a little during the week.

  19. I Just made this and it turned out awesome! I added spinach (didn't have any green onion) freshly grated parmesan and of course I cant eat anything w/o sriracha sauce garnished with some dried chives I had. I was delicious and quit filling.

  20. If we were to want to freeze these for the week, how would we go about that!
