Bernie’s Favorite Recipes

Yesterday, I shared what I keep stocked in my refrigerator. Today, I want to share two of my recipes that I enjoy using those ingredients.

  • 1 Ezekiel English Muffin
  • 1 egg
  • 2 pieces of turkey bacon
  • I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter spray
  • Olive Oil Cooking Spray

Spray a small pan with olive oil cooking spray and warm over medium heat. When it is warm place the two pieces of turkey bacon in the pan. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side. (For crispier bacon, try broiling it in a toaster oven or broiler). Remove the turkey bacon and spray the pan again with olive oil spray, away from the flame and replace to the range. Drop your egg in the pan and cook until over medium. While your egg is cooking, toast your English muffin. When the English muffin is done, spray it once on each half with I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter spray. Lay the bacon and egg inside your English muffin and enjoy your own healthier version of America’s favorite breakfast.
