I don’t care what kind of diet you are on. Who doesn’t love Dunkin’ Donuts once in a while? When they started advertising the new Smokehouse Sausage Breakfast Sandwich, I couldn’t wait to try it. And I did, and it was delicious. Then I looked up the nutrition info and I wanted to puke it all back up.
Nutritional Info - Dunkin’ Donuts Smokehouse Sausage Breakfast Sandwich

Plug that into your points calculator and Holy Shit. A whopping 15 points. I might as well have eaten a Whopper for breakfast!!
So I decided to try and make over this sandwich into a more Weight Watcher friendly option. And I did. I cut the calories nearly in half, and the fat, well, it’s 1/6th of what the Dunkin’ Donut’s version is. I got the sandwich down to a doable 7 points.
So here, meet your new breakfast bff.
(sorry for the crappy photo, but I was too busy drooling over this to take a proper one)
- 1/2 Hillshire Farms Turkey Kielbasa Link
- 1 2% american cheese single
- 1/2 cup of Egg Beaters
- 1 Thomas Whole Grain English Muffin
- 5 sprays of Parkay Spray Butter
Toast the english muffin, and spray each side with one spray of butter.
Cook the egg beaters, seasoning them with salt and pepper. Once cooked, lay the egg beaters on top of the bottom half of the english muffin. Layer cheese over egg beaters.
Slice 1 turkey kielbasa link lengthwise, then in half. Spray 2 pieces with spray butter and cook on bothsides until you get each side a little charred. Layer the sausage onto the cheese, and place the top of the muffin over all.
Dig in, die in breakfast heaven.
WW Points+: 7
Note: I take my breakfast to work. So I wrapped my sandwich in parchment paper and then in aluminum foil and just nuked it for 20 seconds when I got to work.
