It’s hubbie’s birthday today and I thought I’d do something special for breakfast – it’s probably our favourite meal of the day, so can’t go wrong! I have made this before, for his birthday the first year we were together – so good memories. Also, it went down very well last time!
This time I adapted the recipe to make it a bit more Slimming World friendly:
- I used Hovis Nimble wholemeal bread instead of regular wholemeal bread
- I used fat free fromage frais instead of single cream
- I used low fat cheddar instead of the regular kind
The original recipe was from some old recipe book of my mothers. It was a salad roulade – basically replace the breakfasty filling with lettuce, cucumber and tomato. You could add raw sliced mushrooms and spring (green onions).
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Centigrade.
Beat the four egg whites until they form peaks. Fold into the yolk/bread/dairy mixture. Pour into the baking tray. Cook for 10-15 minutes, until golden and firm to the touch (but still has a little bounce).
When cool, slip out of the tray. Turn base out onto chopping board. Remove baking paper from reverse. Spread with low fat mayonnaise. Lay filling on base, leaving one end with less filling so it doesn’t squeeze out when you roll. Roll base.
Serve immediately, or chill overnight and serve for breakfast.
