Tomato & Ham Breakfast Melt
From EatingWell: The EatingWell Diet (2007)
We seek out thin sliced bread for this easy breakfast because it has less calories than regular bread. Several national brands distribute “thin” varieties. Otherwise buy a whole loaf and use a bread knife to carefully slice it.
- 2 slices thin multigrain bread, toasted
- 4 thin slices tomato
- 4 thin slices ham
- 2 slices reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
- Top toasted bread with tomato, ham and cheese. Toast in a toaster oven or under the broiler until the cheese is melted.
