My Better Then Fast Food Becon & Egg Sandwich

Norma DeRemer


How many times have you or I fell prey to the allure of a bacon, egg & cheese sandwich in a drive through window while either in a hurry or traveling? I found the answer with a version of that famous breakfast sandwich with lowering the calories and keeping that good taste. My husband and I love this for breakfast on Sunday mornings.The recipe states that the fast food type has 1,098 calories and 71 grams of fat. This version has 279 calories and 6 grams of fat and omit the cheese and you save 50 more caloreis per serving. How great is that? Enjoy!!!!
