  • 1 tablespoon reduced-fat cream cheese, softened

  • 1 slice whole-grain bread, toasted

  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives

  • ½ teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided

  • 1 slice deli ham (1 ounce)

  • 1 large egg

  • teaspoon ground pepper

  • 2 thick slices ripe tomato

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • ¼ teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • cup alfalfa sprouts


  1. Spread cream cheese on toast; sprinkle with chives. Set aside.

  2. Heat 1/4 teaspoon oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Add ham and cook until warm, about 15 seconds on each side. Transfer to a plate and cover to keep warm.

  3. Whisk egg in a small bowl with pepper. Heat the remaining 1/4 teaspoon oil in the small skillet over medium heat. Add egg; cook, stirring, until soft curds form and are just moist, about 30 seconds.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
