High Protein, Weight Watcher Breakfast with Salsa, refried beans and eggs - Breakfast Tostada recipe

I almost cannot believe it. How did this non-morning person manage to conquer breakfast? One of my really big “wins” this year has been my breakfast. Ok, I still don’t want to eat until I’ve been up for over an hour, but I am managing to actually make myself a hearty, satisfying breakfast that is Weight Watcher compliant.  It all started because of a crunchy tostada that is 50 calories and only 1 Weight Watcher smart point.  The next step came with salsa, store-bought, in this case.  Cooking the egg in some delicious, veggie filled salsa registered a flavor overload.  With a little smear of refried beans and even a sprinkling of cheese, I can still have a protein filled breakfast in under 5 minutes.  Easy, peasy is the only way I do breakfast.

In between taking large gulps of coffee, I can throw this breakfast together.  I heat up the salsa in a pan while I get the tostada out and measure my cheese.  Yes, I measure my cheese.  Next I make a little well in the salsa and carefully ease my egg into the pan.  Put a lid on it for a few minutes and breakfast is served.  You get a deliciously, runny egg mingling with all that scrumptious Mexican flavor.  Woo wee is this a good breakfast.  I’ll be sharing some more breakfast recipes soon.  After many, many attempts, I think I have mastered an omelet.  I can even flip the omelet in the air and catch it back in the pan to cook the other side.  I won’t mention all the times I missed and had egg all over my stove.  No siree, that was just a blimp in journey of omelet supremacy.  Rock on!
