I love eggs benedict but alas I don’t eat English muffins anymore. The solution? Try replacing those muffins with tomato, mozzarella and basil. This is a delicious dish you can enjoy for breakfast, lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch. Total carb count? Only 4g…that’s pretty awesome.
It looks small but I find it filling. Plus, I normally snack at about 2:30, so this carries me well into my snack time.
When making this for friends, I normally would layer the fresh mozzarella slices on top of tomato slices, but I was hungry. No fancy presentation needed.
If you’ve never had this before, I encourage you to try it. Now normally I would use balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I went with apple cider vinegar this time because balsamic is slightly higher in carbs.
