Best for Brunch

Egg’s Benedict is my all-time favorite for brunch, but I only indulge on occasion because it's a heavy dish. This version isn't quite the classic, but at only 240 calories and 14 grams of fat per serving, it's full of flavor for less than five times (!) the fat and calories in the original.

An Unusual Omelet

Most folks load up their omelets with cheddar cheese, but some fresh herbs and tomatoes will bring the flavor for much less fat.

Use Up the Leftovers

Toss cooked pasta left in the fridge into this dinner-friendly frittata, and you've got a dish with healthy protein and extra fiber. Add a garden salad or some fresh fruit on the side to complete the meal.

For Poached Egg Fans
