The Five Ingredients You Meet in Heaven is just about one of my favorite sandwiches of all time!! Since I've been home the past few weeks, I have had a craving often for this fav of mine, so I knew I needed to cut cals wherever I could. Ya know what's funny, I ate this sandwich almost daily when I was home on maternity leave with Tristan 5 years ago. And now, as I sit home potty training our little Nash & getting this craving again it's as if my body associated taking care of a new baby, fur ball or other, with a breakfast sandwich.
Anyway, for this heavenly makeover, I use a whole wheat English Muffin instead of a bagel, Canadian Bacon instead of regular, 1 egg cooked in Pam rather than butter & a slice of reduced fat cheese instead of whole milk. Sometimes I may use just half of a slice. And instead of the usual slathering of extra butter on the bread, the muffin goes untouched & relies on the wonderful oozings of egg after that 1st bite.
If you want a little something on the side, these potatoes are perfect. I make them all the time for dinner. You see, I love potatoes but I just can't eat a baked potato without a dollop or two of butter and/or sour cream. But these potatoes are so delicious & healthy, cooked over high heat in just 1 tblsp of olive oil. The trick is to not move them around too much & let them get crispy but tender.
I love the tiny potatoes such as fingerling but use what you prefer. Slice 1/8" thick. Heat 1 tblsp olive oil in large pan. Scatter potatoes in even layer & cook over medium high heat. Season with salt, pepper, oregano. I often use a Tuscan seasoning sometimes but you can use whatever spices you want. I cook the potatoes until golden brown, flipping occasionally, about 20 minutes. If your pan is getting dry just add a little Pam or brush on a little oil. Toward the end, I sprinkle with just a little parmesan cheese.
I assure you, this easy process brings out the simple but delicious flavor of these potatoes without adding extra fat you find in so many potato dishes.
Have a great weekend everyone!!!
See you next week for another new & exciting appetizer I made just yesterday that will be a hit at your next party!!!!!
