patatas bravas
If you don’t have an ovenproof pan, cook the egg “crust” in whatever pan you have and then transfer it to a baking sheet before dressing it with the sauce and cheese to finish it off in the oven.Ingredients

Cooking spray (such as Pam)
½ cup Egg beaters
1 oz low-fat mozzarella string cheese, chopped
1/4 cup marinara sauce*
Big pinch of dried oregano or basil (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese


Set small oven-proof pan over medium heat; lightly coat with cooking spray. Add egg mixture and cook without stirring for about 2 minutes until the bottom is set and the top is just a bit loose. Using a rubber spatula, scrape down sides to completely release egg from pan.

Flip the egg over. Cook for a few seconds on the second side and then scatter the mozzarella evenly over the surface. Spoon the marinara sauce and sprinkle it with the oregano or basil, salt and pepper to taste. Dust the pizza with the Parmesan cheese.

Leaving the pizza in the pan, place it under a heated broiler about 1 minute or until the cheese is done to your liking. Remove and serve immediately.

*Note: Additional toppings such as low-fat turkey Italian sausage, sautéed mushrooms, or sautéed peppers can be added.

 Choose a marinara sauce with 70 calories per ½ cup serving, 8 grams net carbs, and up to 6 grams sugar. Safeway Select Marinara or Trader Joe’s Arrabiata are good choices.
