Feta Cheese Breakfast Toast

We are closing our Healthy Breakfast week with a recipe provided by Ana S. Popov, a food blogger and editor of Ana's Chronicles. Here it is, Feta Cheese Breakfast Toast, developed especially for our readers, in her own words:

Enjoy a Healthy and Tasty Whole Grain Breakfast
When I met my husband, he introduced me to feta cheese and I quickly developed an appreciation for it. It is lower in calories and high in flavor! Plus, it is filling and it is a good source of calcium. Another important nutrient to good health is whole grain. It can reduce the risk of heart disease, keep the intestines working smoothly and help you keep healthy weight. The combination of feta cheese and whole grain makes a delicious and healthy breakfast. I have a tasty recipe for you that takes only 5 minutes to prepare.
Feta Cheese Breakfast Toast:
2 eggs yolks
4 slices of Whole Grain Sandwich Thins (made by Orowheat)
½ tablespoon of margarine or butter substitute
½ cup of feta cheese, crumbled
¼ cup of low fat mozzarella cheese, shredded
¼ cup of lean ham, diced or chopped (optional)
Ground black pepper, to taste
Preheat the oven to 360F. In a bowl, whisk in feta cheese, mozzarella, egg yolks, pepper and ham. Meanwhile, place the Sandwich Thins slices (soft part up) in a baking pan. Spread margarine on top of each bread slice and topped with the egg and cheese mixture.
Bake for 15 minutes or until egg mixture is fully cooked. Serve hot or at room temperature.
It pairs very well with fruit and orange juice.
Serves 4
Tip: To keep your feta cheese creamy and flavorsome, keep it refrigerated in a brine of 1/2 milk and 1/2 water for up to 3 weeks in an airtight container.
