Weight Watchers / Breakfast Recipe

Just signed up for WW. I have always had success losing weight using it. But, i usually end up stopping after a few weeks and up to 20 pounds gone. This time I'm following through! Anyway here's a recipe that i learned when I was going to get gastric bypass (yes.... it's been that bad, but i decided that i needed to do this on my own.) It's so yummy and so easy to do. I usually make a huge batch and pop them in the toaster oven when I'm ready to eat them.

Egg and Bacon breakfast cups
  • 1 carton of egg beaters (i use the southwestern flavor)
  • 5 strips of turkey bacon chopped
  • 3 3/4oz slices of Colby jack cheese (i have also used string cheese but i LOVE Colby jack) chopped
  • Pam spray
  1. Spray down a muffin tin with Pam, i usually just do a super short quirt in each section.
  2. pour the egg beaters into each section about 3/4 of the way up
  3. add the chopped turkey bacon and cheese.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't burn.
And that's it! Super simple, super easy and super yummy. With WW it's 1 point a cup. You can add mushrooms, peppers, onion or any other veggie really without messing up the point total. For those not on weight watchers here are the nutritional facts:
