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.
