I really enjoy bagels but they are typically high in calories. This fact prevents me from enjoying often, but Thomas has a new product called Bagel Thins that allow me to indulge without the guilt. I found some at the local Kroger Grocery Store and bought a package.
The first thing I noticed is how thin they are. Sure, they are called “Bagel Thins” after all, but they are really thin when compared to your standard heavy bagel. Due to the size they have less spring to them as well and the texture is a little strange for a bagel.
I made an egg sandwich with my first bagel using the following:
- 1 Thomas Thin Bagel
- 1 Egg
- 1 Wedge of Weight Watcher’s Swiss Cheese Spread
First off, I cooked the egg in a non-stick skillet for about 3 minutes until it was done. I then toasted the bagel on the (2) setting in my toaster and spread the cheese on it. I then added the egg to the bagel and had at it.
The bagel, although thin, held up well to the egg and cheese and most importantly, had a good flavor. After the meal, I was satisfied and didn’t have to worry about the calorie content. In the future I’m going to be using the product more often as it holds up better than sliced bread, and only has 110 calories for each bagel.
If you are following the Weight Watchers Points Plus program, they count for 3 points per bagel. If not, it breaks down to 110 calories, 1g fat, 25g carbs, and 4g of fiber per bagel.
