The recipe: "Hungry Girl 1-2-3", pages 42 - 43

This breakfast dish consisted of a combination of flavors that I never would have thought of on my own.  There have been a couple of HG meals that I've made that had apple in them, like the Grilled Fuji-n-Chick 'Wich, or the Sweet Apple & Chicken Stir-Fry.  Both of those recipes were delicious, so I thought I'd try a savory breakfast dish with apple in it.  This recipe was also pretty tasty.  The combination of cheese, bacon, and mushrooms went really well with the sweetness of the apple.  And check out the portion size below!

A nice-size slice for only 4 points+!  Definitely a calorie bargain, and one I will be making again in the future.  I added a piece of fruit for a very filling breakfast.  Perhaps the most exciting part of making this recipe is that I got to do the ole switcheroo from stove top to oven with my pan for the first time.  I always see professional chefs use this technique on those cooking shows, but have never put a pan in the oven before.  I honestly wasn't sure if my pans could go in the oven, but they don't have any plastic parts to them, so I gave it a shot.  It seemed to work out just fine, so maybe I'll use this technique again when I want to get a nice brown crust on something I am cooking over the stove.  Pretty cool!

  1. Oh, yum! I love mixing sweet and savory - this has been bookmarked to make as soon as it's not 100º+ out and I feel like cooking again!
