Sometimes breakfast on the road can be quite the challenge. I don’t do pastries or cereal, and my usual breakfast of choice in a sit down restaurant is a poached egg on dry wheat toast. If I have a free breakfast at my hotel, I try to get some eggs, and if not sometimes it’s a Egg McMuffin without the meat.
But yesterday I happened across a low-calorie breakfast option that I can make in the microwave – Special K Flatbread Breakfast Sandwiches.
To be fair, only one variety really appealed to me because I don’t eat meat and I like to keep the sodium down; so I gave the Egg with Vegetables and Pepper Jack Cheese variety a try. To be honest I was a bit skeptical, as I hate those powdered fake tasting eggs that many breakfast entrees have. But I decided to give it the old college try anyway.
I’m happy to report that I was pleasantly surprised taste-wise. The egg was the real thing, and it wasn’t over seasoned with salt. It was sandwiched in between two pieces of whole wheat flatbread, and topped with some veggies and pepper jack cheese. And although they both added a little flavor to the sandwich, it still needed a little something, so I added a few dabs of salsa.
The only down side is that they come four to a package, so if we stay somewhere for two nights it’s good, but otherwise it’s just not doable.
In the end, it’s pretty tasty for a mere 180 calories. And although the 510 mg. of sodium is higher than I’d get with a home made breakfast, it’s much lower than other packaged breakfast sandwiches.
So I think it’s a keeper for me. It’s nice to have more road trip breakfast options!
