1/4tsp cinnamon
Sugar free chocolate sauce/powdered sugar for topping

Mix together all of the filling ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. In a separate small bowl mix the egg white, milk, vanilla & cinnamon together and lightly beat with a fork. Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece of bread and cut out a circle. Dip each circle into the egg mixture and cook over medium heat for 2 or so minutes per side.

1 Thomas ‘Everything’ Bagel Thin
5 Egg whites
2 slices of Borden’s fat free sharp cheddar cheese
2 slices of Jenny O turkey bacon

Preheat broiler to high. Line a baking sheet with foil. Broil bacon/bagel until crispy. Watch the bagel, it will cook fast.

While bacon is cooking separate the egg whites into a small bowl and lightly beat with a fork. Pour half of the eggs into a microwave egg cooker and cook for about 1 minute (my favorite is by Nordic Ware –  http://amzn.com/B001B2MRSE). Remove egg patty and repeat with the rest of the eggs. Layer bagel with egg, cheese & bacon!
