Perfect for a laid-back weekend breakfast or brunch, these adorable little Crustless Quiches are not only delicious, but they are just 3 Points + each! By eliminating the tradition quiche crust, this dish becomes a low carb, high protein Weight Watchers breakfast recipe that is flavorful and filling, yet still very light. Also, using egg whites instead of whole eggs makes a big difference in the nutritional content. I love and prefer the taste of egg whites, but these quiches can be made with whole eggs or EggBeaters if you’d rather. Serve with some toast, fresh fruit and a light salad for a complete, low Points Plus meal.
I do not even know where to begin to accurately express my love for these monstrously delicious Brunch Stuffed Peppers. Not only are they incredibly quick and easy to prepare, they are filled with amazing, savory flavors that will make you forget you actually eating something low calorie and low in Points. They key here is not skimping on the bacon and cheese. Yes, you read that right. The rest of the ingredients are all on the lighter side, so I decided to be a bit heavy handed with the bacon and cheese. Sure, you could probably shave a Point or two off by using fat free cheese or turkey bacon, but the flavor of this Weight Watchers brunch recipe is dramatically enhanced by using the good stuff. My most favorite bacon to use is THIS one from Applegate Farms. It’s lower in sodium than most bacon and is nitrate free, which I LOVE. I adore these Brunch Stuffed Peppers so much that I’m planning on making them for Christmas morning breakfast this year instead of my Baked Pumpkin Pie French Toast. Yes, they are that good.
Recently, I came across this Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe at Fresh Family Meals, and was extremely skeptical about the end result. Traditional Chinese Fried Rice is one of the most popular and beloved Chinese food recipes out there, and some things are just sacred. That being said, I sure do LOVE fried rice, so despite my skepticism, the promise of delicious, low Points fried rice made me believe it was worth a shot. I tweaked the original version of the recipe just a tad to make it a bit tastier and a bit more Weight Watchers friendly, but let me tell you, it was fantastic! I can honestly say that it tasted pretty darn close to traditional fried rice, though each cup sized serving came out to just 2 Points + vs the 10 Points Plus of restaurant prepared fried rice. That is a HUGE deal people. And it is surprisingly easy to prepare…the only real work involved is grating the cauliflower. I’d recommend a food processor for this task, but if you don’t have one, a cheese grater will work just fine, it’ll just require more elbow grease. This would make a perfect low Points Weight Watchers Side Dish to serve with your favorite main course…I served it with my Sesame Chicken, and it was perfection. Low calorie, low fat, low carb, low Points, and fabulous, familiar flavor…what more could you ask for? This Cauliflower Fried Rice Recipe is an absolute must try.
I love having a breakfast ready to go when I wake up in the morning, and I love it even more when it’s something as delicious as an Eggs Benedict Casserole! By making a few healthier adjustments to a typical Eggs Benedict recipe, and making it into a casserole version, I’ve created a delicious and easy breakfast casserole that is prepared the night before and baked in the morning. I also make the Hollandaise Sauce the night before and the just re-heat it in the morning. Each very nicely sized serving is just 6 Points + and it tastes amazing. I’m a really big fan of Hollandaise, and my light Hollandaise sauce recipe that is served with this casserole is so easy and good…and you get a nice 1/4 cup serving! This low calorie Eggs Benedict Casserole is the perfect Weight Watchers Breakfast Recipe for the whole family. Enjoy!
I love to make this Egg White Salad Recipe to have on hand for the week…it’s so filling and I can have it as a snack with crackers or on toast or salad for a lunch. Each 3/4 cup serving is just 2 Points +, so it makes a great low calorie prepared food on hand when I don’t have the time or energy to cook something. This cholesterol free egg salad is made with Vegenaise which is my absolute favorite mayo alternative. But reduced fat mayo works just as fine too. Either way, this is one delicious egg white salad recipe that is key to help keeping you full for just a couple of Weight Watchers Points. Enjoy!
On Christmas morning, wouldn’t it be nice to wake up to a healthy, Weight Watchers breakfast that was cooked for you, hot and ready? Well, this easy Crock Pot Breakfast Casserole Recipe does just that! Full of protein, but lower on carbs, this breakfast casserole packs in everything you need for a filling and satisfying meal. Just prep it and put it on the crock pot the night before, and it’ll be ready when you wake up! I topped mine with some reduced fat sour cream and salsa for extra oomph. I’ve also made this dish with turkey bacon instead of sausage, and that works really well too. And each serving is just 6 Points +, which isn’t bad for a delicious casserole filed with sausage and cheese. This breakfast casserole recipe is perfect for the non-morning person who still wants to put together a healthy and tasty breakfast for the family. Enjoy!
Tired of all the delicious, seasonal pumpkin recipes yet? I didn’t think so. Here’s another one for a Baked Pumpkin French Toast that is so good, it tastes more like dessert than breakfast. After seeing so many baked french toasts recipes floating around lately, I decided to give one a shot, even though I’m not a huge fan of french toast. I decided to make my egg mix a little more healthy and a little more seasonal by adding pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and using Egg Beaters instead of real eggs. I also used some leftover challah bread that we had for dinner on a Friday night. The prep was very easy. It took me all of 10 minutes. Then I just set it in my fridge overnight and popped it in the oven in the morning. My house smelled AMAZING while it was baking! And it was delicious. Seriously, DELICIOUS. Each serving was 8 Points +, which isn’t too bad considering this was a large and filling serving topped with real maple syrup. You could probably shave off a point or two by using low calorie syrup, but in my opinion, a dish this divine deserves the good stuff. I was quite full at just 1 serving. This would make a perfect Christmas morning breakfast recipe (just let it bake while you are opening presents!) or even for the morning after Thanksgiving (if you don’t plan on eating dinner leftovers for breakfast like I’ll be doing). Regardless of when or how you eat it, this is one Baked French Toast Recipe you must try. Enjoy!
When I want a breakfast that’s quick and easy to make, this is one of my go to breakfast sandwich recipes. It’s basic, but oh so flavorful and filling. I feel like I’m getting all the tastes I crave but for a lot less Weight Watchers Points. I’ve also made these savory little sandwiches for lunch and dinner too, as they are just super fast and easy, and everyone loves them. And with just 4 Points + per sandwich, I can save room for dessert while still staying within my Points budget. These can also be prepared a day before, and the re-heated in the toaster oven (but I’d wait to add the mayo until just before serving). Definitely a great recipe to use when you need something fast and easy, but still light and healthy.
If you are in the mood for a bit of a Points splurge for a an absolutely delicious and decadent breakfast recipe, then this Baked Egg Bread Boat Recipe is just the ticket. I came across this recipe at Spoon Fork Bacon, and decided to play around with it a bit to make it more Weight Watchers friendly. Just a few small changes, and my Baked Egg Bread Boat turned out SO good! For 9 Points + you get an entire sourdough demi baguette filled with baked in egg whites, cheese and veggies. Seriously delicious. It’ can be a little tricky getting the right cut into the bread…I plan on attempting this recipe a few more times to see if I can do it better and get a better picture. But overall, it’s really an easy breakfast or brunch recipe to make and the flavors and textures are incredible. I can’t wait to make this again! This is a wonderful Weight Watchers breakfast idea for those days when you need your carb fix. Enjoy!
Looking for a new Weight Watchers Breakfast Recipe idea? These Italian Egg (Whites) over Polenta with are delicious! It’s kind of like a unique version of Chicken Parmigiana, with eggs instead of chicken, and polenta instead breading. It is SO good! And just 6 Points + per serving, so you get a very savory and filling meal without using up a lot of those precious Points. This is a really versatile dish that can also be prepared for lunch or dinner too. In fact, the first time I made this, it was for dinner. The traditional Italian Eggs recipe uses whole eggs, which you could certainly do instead if you don’t mind spending a few more Points. I make it for my husband like this, and I cook the egg for about a minute less so that it’s runny. He LOVES it like this. I prefer it with my egg white version. :) But either way, this is one tasty and unique egg recipe that will add some excitement to breakfast! Enjoy.
I got the idea for this Poached Eggs over Polenta with Olive Tapenade Recipe while eating an olive tapenade bruschetta one day. While enjoying the olive tapenade on the delicious bread of the bruschetta, I thought about trying it over a lower calorie option instead – polenta. I also wanted to add in a delicate flavor that would balance out the dish and add a touch of creaminess, and since I’ve been having lots of fun experimenting with poached eggs lately, I decided that this may be the ticket. I was astounded at how fantastic this dish turned out! The flavors are absolutely amazing, and the poached eggs over the polenta and olive tapenade is perfect. Though this is not a low fat or low cholesterol recipe, the balance of protein and fiber and the minimized carbohydrates make this Weight Watchers recipe a mere 8 Points +. NOT bad considering that you are eating two whole eggs over 4 slices of polenta with a decadent olive tapenade. Pair this dish with a light salad, and you’ve got a great Weight Watchers meal. There are a million different variations of this recipe bouncing around in my head that I’m dying to try, and I’m thrilled at how well this Poached Eggs over Polenta with Olive Tapenade turned out. I also think this would work really well with a creamier, homemade polenta, but I chose to keep it simple and use the prepared “log” I found at Trader Joe’s. Regardless, this dish is excellent and an absolute MUST try.
