Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Faux Apple Omelet

FAUX APPLE OMELET
2 Servings = 3 PointsPlus™
4 Servings = 2 PointsPlus™


3 TBSP all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 eggs, separated
3 TBSP fat-free milk
1 TBSP lemon juice
3 TBSP Splenda granulated

TOPPING:
1 large tart apple, peeled and thinly sliced
1 tsp Splenda granulated
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon

In a small bowl, combine flour and baking powder. In another small bowl, whisk the egg yolks, milk and lemon juice. Stir into dry ingredients and mix well; set aside.

In another small bowl, beat egg whites on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually beat in Splenda, 1 TBSP at a time, on high until stiff peaks form. Fold into yolk mixture.

Pour into a glass pie pan sprayed with cooking spray. Arrange apple slices on top. Combine Splenda and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples.

Bake, uncovered, at 375º for 18 - 20 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.

MY SPIN: When I made this, I used more cinnamon on the topping.....I think next time I'll use the 1/4 tsp for the topping but put some in with the flour and baking powder. The spray I used was the butter flavored. I think this actually tasted better the next day.......and could/would make a nice dessert with a dollop of fat-free Cool Whip as well.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court! *The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark.*

Later!
Loving Life(time)!
