10 minTotal Time
- ½ cup Mayonnaise
- ¼ cup Skim Milk (or plain yogurt)
- 1 tsp. Mustard (Dijon or yellow type)
- 1/8 tsp. Pepper
- ½ tsp. Basil (crushed)
- ¼ tsp. Lemon Juice
- 4 Eggs
- 4 Slices Canadian Bacon (Ham or other breakfast meat)
- 8 slices Bread (Whole Wheat or type of your choice)
- 12 Inch Skillet or Square Griddle
- Start toasting your toast.
- Preheat your skillet or griddle over medium heat
- Mix together all but the eggs, meat and bread. Set aside.
- Cook eggs in skillet or griddle, two at a time. Remember to use a small amount of food spray as eggs do not release moisture as they cook and will stick without it. Prepare the eggs to your liking, sunny side up, over easy or well cooked.
- Add 2 slices of the Canadian bacon or meat to the pan along with the eggs. Cook just enough to heat it through, about 2 minutes.
- To serve, start with one slice of toast, top with slice of warmed meat, then egg and top with a spoonful of sauce. Serve with a slice of toast on the side and fresh fruit or juice.
- Serve piping hot and start on the next two servings.
