Egg White Roll-Up!

I made this yesterday and it was so good I had to make it again today and share the goodness!   Although it's pretty simple, it's very tasty.  It kind of reminds me of an Egg McMuffin - but without the bread - and all the extra calories and what not.
9 TBSP Egg Whites (3 servings)
1 slice Turkey Bacon
sprinkle shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
In small frying pan, let egg whites cook - flip over when they start to firm up.  Let them cook flat, so you'll be able to roll up - almost forms an egg tortilla! :)  Place egg white "tortilla" on a plate, and sprinkle some cheese on so it can get melty.  Cook Turkey bacon - I only cook it for about 20-30 seconds on each side (this leaves it kind of the texture of the Canadian Bacon on the egg mcmuffin) -- Place bacon in midlde of egg whites, and roll up - Enjoy!

You could easily put the egg/bacon/cheese on a Thomas' Better Start High Fiber English Muffin -- This would change the nutrition information a bit - but still not bad!!  It'd make it.....

Ours is 72 Less calories, 7g less fat, 1g less carb, 6g more fiber, 5g more protein, AND almost 200mg less sodium!  Much better for you - and you can make it in less time than you can go through the drive thru at Mickey D's!
