Turkey, Cheese & Egg Roll Up


This egg roll up recipe is an adaptation of a typical ham, egg and cheese roll up. With the changes I've made, it's Weight Watchers FreeStyle friendly with just 1 SmartPoint.

Instead of ham, turkey deli luncheon meat is used as this is now a zero point food on the freestyle plan. Of course the fat is reduced even further by using low fat cheese.

The beauty of this breakfast recipe is you can add (or subtract) veggies to your taste without changing the WW Points Plus or SmartPoints.

Without further ado, here is my twist on this breakfast classic.

Turkey, Cheese and Egg Roll Up

This is my adaptation of a recipe I found on delish.com. Instead of ham, I am using turkey breast luncheon meat (zero points on the FreeStyle program. I also added some parsley for extra flavor and am using skim milk to mix the eggs (tastes creamier this way). I am using low fat cheese (which doesn't melt as well) but saves on some Weight Watchers points.

Tips

The beauty of this egg roll up recipe is you can easily mix it up for a different taste each time you make it. For instance, instead of cheddar cheese you can use mozzarella or even Swiss cheese. Instead of spinach, saute up some bell peppers to add the the roll up.
