Poblano and egg breakfast sandwich

Total Time:   12 min   Prep: 5 min  Cook:  7 min  Serves: 1
Difficulty: Easy

Here’s a spicy twist to a classic breakfast egg sandwich. It takes just 12 minutes to have it ready to go and is lightened up with reduced-fat cheese, whole wheat bread, and egg whites. If you happen to have some cilantro or other favorite herb on hand, feel free to chop some and throw it in as you’re cooking the egg whites—it will add a nice fresh touch! Also, poblano chiles are a slightly spicy pepper, so err on the side of too little if you’re sensitive, but if you want to keep it completely tame, you can use bell pepper instead.
