Egg McMuffin with Sausage

Take out: 27g of fat (10g of saturated fat) can't be the healthiest way to start your day...Sorry Ronald but I'm NOT lovin' it!

Fake Out: A lower calorie, much lower fat, low cholesterol and high fiber option made in a few short minutes. The kids actually prefer this so it's a no-brainer.

Pour the egg beater into a tiny round non-stick pan on medium heat. Split & toast your multi-grain light English muffin and then pop your turkey breakfast sausages in the microwave for 1-2 minutes. When the muffin is toasted, lay the low fat cheese slice on top & watch it melt (OK enough...snap out of it. LOL). Then cut the sausage links in half (now you have 4 halves) and lay those side-by-side on the cheese. Finally, flip in your round egg beater & season with ketchup & pepper.
