Reduced calorie mayonnaise
Fresh lemon juice
Uncooked Canadian bacon
2 oz, about 4 slices
Whole wheat English muffin(s)
2 item(s), split and toasted
4 large egg(s)
- In the top of a double boiler, blend hot water with mayonnaise, stirring frequently until heated through, about 7 minutes. Add lemon juice. Remove double boiler from heat and set aside. Add 2 to 3 drops yellow food coloring, if desired.
- In a nonstick skillet, cook bacon until heated through, about 3 minutes. Place one slice bacon on each muffin half.
- Meanwhile, prepare poached eggs by cracking each egg into one of four microwaveable bowls (be careful not to break the yolks). Cover each with clear plastic wrap. Microwave 2 eggs at a time on HIGH until whites are cooked and yolk is firm, about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Remove eggs with slotted spoon and place one each on muffin halves. Top each egg with 2 tablespoons of sauce and serve immediately. Yields 1/2 muffin per serving.
