Toasted Blueberry Muffin with Warm Citrus Compote

Posted by: Skip /  Category: Breakfast

2 points per serving | Prep: 10 min | Cook 8-10 min (plus 10 min for cooling) | Yields: 2/4 cup of compote (2 T per half-muffin) | Serves: 6

1 T cornstarch
1 tsp Splenda Brown Sugar Blend
2 T water
1/2 cup light orange juice with pulp
1 cup orange segments, divided
1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
1/8 tsp lemon zest
1/8 tsp lime zest
3 Weight Watchers Blueberry Muffins (1 box)

Preheat oven to 350°F.

In a medium saucepan, whisk cornstarch, Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, and water. Whisk in orange juice. Bring mixture to a boil over medium heat, about 2 minutes, whisking constantly to prevent lumps as it thickens.

Whisk in 1/2 cup orange segments and simmer over medium-low heat for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring often. Orange segments should break down and sauce should thicken, but should not become stiff.

Remove sauce from heat. Stir in vanilla extract, lemon zest, and lime zest. Let cool for about 10 minutes.

While sauce is cooling, slice each muffin in half and lightly toast in the oven on both sides. Serve each person a muffin half topped with 2 Tbsp. of compote. Garnish with remaining 1/2 cup orange segments.

Good Idea: Leftover compote also makes a delicious, guilt-free marmalade. Spread on whole wheat toast, or apples slices, or mix into fat-free plain yogurt. Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

Posted by: Skip /  Category: Breakfast

From 5/16-5/22 Weekly

4 points per serving | Prep: 10 min | Cook: 6 min | Serves: 2

2 large eggs
4 large egg whites
1/8 tsp hot pepper sauce, or to taste
1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 Tbsp minced scallion
1 spray cooking spray
1/2 cup finely diced cooked lean ham
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (Parmigiano-Reggiano suggested)

In a large bowl, beat together eggs, egg whites, hot sauce, salt, pepper, and scallion.

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Pour in egg mixture and tilt skillet so bottom is completely covered with egg. Cook omelet until eggs are almost set, occasionally lifting egg to let uncooked egg move to edges of skillet, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Sprinkle ham and cheese over eggs. Using a spatula, ease up edges of omelet and gently fold in half; cook until heathed through, about 1 minute. Yields 1/2 omelet per serving.

Good Idea: Scramble the eggs for an even faster entrée.
