Bruschetta for Breakfast!

Eggs are a delicious way to start the day but sometimes I get a little bored with just poaching them or scrambling them.  This weekm I tried something a bit different and really liked it!!  My grocery store, Harris Teeter, sells this amazingly delicious ready-made bruschetta topping in the deli area and I always have some on hand.  I use it to jazz up scrambled eggs so I thought, why not try it with egg on toast?  It’s a super-simple, quick recipe that will keep you satiated until the next time you eat.

Here is my “recipe” for Bruschetta for Breakfast:

1 egg white (my nutritionist said the whole egg would have been fine, too)
2 slices of artisan whole wheat bread (thin, no more than 160 calories for 2 slices)
cooking spray
2 Tbs Tuscan Bruschetta

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Lightly spray the bread and place in the oven for about 5 mins or until golden brown.

Meanwhile, lightly spray a small skillet with cooking spray and turn the heat to medium.  When the pan is warm, place the egg white in and season with cracked black pepper, if you like.  You want the white to come together but don’t cook it too much, you don’t want it to get dried out.  You can cut the egg white in half and share it between the two slices of bread and then top each with one Tbs of the Tuscan Bruschetta.  It is DELICIOUS and lite and filling all at the same time.  Here is what mine looked like, though I folded the egg white and only had it on one piece of the toast.

Doesn’t that look SO GOOD???
Another great way to use this bruschetta is on a salad.  In fact, it is a great replacement for salad dressing.  One day last week, I had some leftover London Broil that we had cooked on the grill so I measured out 3 oz of the beef and placed it on 1/2 a heart of romaine.  Then, I added a tablespoon of capers and 3 tablespoons of the Tuscan Bruschetta.  SO. FREAKING. GOOD.
After I ate it, I had to admit that really, 3oz of the London Broil was more than I needed.  1.5-2 oz would have been more than enough.  But it was really good!!
Are you curious at all about my latest weight loss results?  Well, I had my session with Bernadette this week and was down another 2 lbs, bringing me down to 196!!  This is so exciting!  When I went to see her a month ago, my weight was up to 205 and I was feeling out of control and totally desperate.  It has been such a help to meet with her weekly.
I have high hopes for where I will be at the end of the year!!  🙂
