Smoked salmon and egg whites on a toasted whole-wheat English muffin is the perfect power breakfast. For a more substantial meal, pair it with a piece of fruit or a glass of 100% juice.

This was accurate and on point. But not just for breakfast but for anytime. I love egg whites and used to eat a combination of egg whites pasta and fish for dinner after my run Akinyele.B Tokyo Read More

Cut down on the cooking time by nuking the egg white and omitting onions....Egg Beaters cheese and chives are a good sub for the egg whites.... Weight Watchers English muffins are smaller than regular muffins which makes the sandwich look more stacked! lol Lovin' the smoked salmon at brekkie!! Read More

I changed it to wholemeal pita and instead of smoked salmon i changed it to poached salmon. More healthy and lower calories. Constance Fong Kuala Lumpur Ma Read More

The sodium content of this recipe is a bit high for us watching our blood pressure. As an alternative skip the salt and add the smoked salmon to the eggs. It comes out like chopped ham & scrambled eggs but the heavy dose of salt in the smoked salmon does double duty in salting the eggs. solidpoint Sacramento CA Read More

This was a great recipe I substituted ezekiel 4.9 whole grain bread instead of the muffin to get the extra fiber and i did not add salt the smoked salmon has enough salt content to flavor the sandwich. Eat well to live well people! Khalil Philadelphia Pa Read More
