Cook time

5 min.

  • 2 slices bacon, cut in half
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 whole-wheat hamburger bun
  • ½ cup torn lettuce
  • 2 Tbsp reduced-fat blue cheese, crumbled
  • 1 large or 3 small tomato slice(s)
  • 1 slice red onion

Lay out bacon on a small microwave-safe plate.

Spray a small microwave-safe bowl with olive oil spray. Add eggs.

Place paper towel over bacon. Cook in 20-second intervals (between intervals, use a knife to push any set portions of eggs to the center, allowing runny eggs to move to the edges) until eggs are set.

Remove eggs. Continue cooking bacon until done, rotating as needed to cook evenly.

Place bun bottom on plate. Add lettuce, eggs, bleu cheese, tomato, bacon, onion, and top of bun.
