Recipe courtesy of the American Heart Association


1 1/2 cups finely chopped fresh or frozen (thawed) broccoli florets

1/4 cup water

8 extra-large egg whites or 1 1/4 cups egg white substitute

1/2 cup skim milk

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

2 whole-wheat English muffins, split and toasted

1/4 cup shredded, fat-free cheddar cheese


1) Finely chop broccoli. Coat a large nonstick saute pan with cooking spray; warm over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and water; stirring frequently, cook until broccoli is limp, around 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and transfer broccoli to a dish.

2) In a bowl, add egg whites, milk, and pepper. Whisk together to combine.

3) Split and toast each English muffin; set aside.

4) Meanwhile, use a paper towel to wipe the saute pan clean. Coat again with cooking spray and warm over medium-high heat. Add egg whites and use a spatula to stir eggs constantly until whites are almost firm, just a few minutes. Stir in cooked broccoli and cheese; remove from heat.

5) To serve, place each English muffin half onto a plate. Divide egg mixture between each muffin, piling high with eggs. Serve with a fork and knife.
