clean breakfast sandwich, mcdonalds alternative, sausage and egg, sausage mcmuffin alternativeThis sandwich is probably made 3-4 times a week by my husband.  It it very simple to make and is only 300 calories! It’s a better option than going to McDonalds for a 450 calorie sausage mcmuffin.  Did you know that one of those bad boys is loaded with 940 mg of sodium.  Holy Cow!

  • 2 Links of Maple Chicken Sausage – (60 calories per link) 
  • 6 tablespoons or about 1/2 cup of egg whites – (50 calories)
  • 2 Slices of your favorite whole grain white or wheat bread (130 calories).  You want a bread without all the preservatives or a white bread that is whole grain and doe not contain bleached flour.

It’s very simple to prepare. Brown the sausage in a skillet using cooking spray so it does not stick. My husband likes to cook the egg in the microwave, which is very quick.  Just make sure you spray some cooking spray in the bowl so the egg does not stick.  Cook the egg on high for about 1.5 minutes.  Lastly, toast the bread and put the sandwich together!  To spice it up, add a little bit of salsa or hot sauce.  My husband will sometimes sneak a dash of ketchup on there.  He loves his ketchup.
