Macro Friendly Mondays — Cut Da Carb Breakfast Pizza!

Got another Cut Da Carb recipe for y’all. Anyone surprised? 😂

So this idea was was born of a mash up of the bfast crunch wrap and sandwich recipes I’ve seen floating around. I wanted the same flavors, but more square inches 📏

I finally hopped on the Velveeta bandwagon and now I understand what the hype is about! I actually used the sliced kind since I couldn’t find the shreds, but you can use either. Don’t use another cheese—trust me! I’ve actually been having this for lunch alongside roasted veggies, but it would be great any time of day! Who else is team #BreakfastAllDay?!

🥣 Ingredients:
👉🏼1 Cut Da Carb flatbread
👉🏼138g liquid egg substitute, scrambled (the yellow kind, not whites)
👉🏼56g sweet onion, cooked to caramelize
👉🏼42g Canadian bacon, diced (or ham, turkey bacon, or turkey sausage)
👉🏼2 Velveeta squares, diced (or 42g shreds)
👉🏼34g Smucker’s no sugar added strawberry preserves (red label/lid, NOT the blue one)

👩🏻‍🍳 Instructions:
1️⃣ Turn oven on low broil.
2️⃣ Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil.
3️⃣ Cut the flatbread in half and place them on the sheet. (I prefer doing two pieces so that I get crispy edges all the way around each piece. I’ve tried doing it all in one piece, and the middle ends up too flimsy). Toast under broil for 1-2 minutes.
🚨 IMPORTANT: The edges will crisp up when it’s under broil, so just get it to where it’s rigid enough that toppings can be added.
4️⃣ Remove from the oven.
5️⃣ (Optional step; see notes) Spread the preserves evenly over the flatbreads. I recommend leaving some of the edges without any so that they can get crispy in the oven.
6️⃣ Sprinkle the crumbled egg, ham, onion, and cheese on the flatbread.
7️⃣ Broil for 2–5 minutes depending on your oven and how crispy you want the edges to get. Rotate as needed to cook evenly. Check every 30 seconds or so because it will burn quickly!
8️⃣ Remove from the oven, transfer to a plate, and slice into squares or triangles using a pizza cutter.
9️⃣ Enjoy!

📝 Notes:
‼️ Adjust ingredient amounts to fit macro needs.
‼️ You don’t have to cook the onion first, but I like the caramelization of cooking them before hand.
‼️ You can skip adding the preserves to the crust and add them to the pizza once cooked (I actually prefer doing this because the crust stays more crisp).
‼️ You can use another wrap or flatbread, but nutrition will change.
‼️ The red lid/label (no added sugar) Smucker’s preserves is 25 calories per serving as compared to the blue label/lid (sugar free) which is 15. BUT it tastes like the full sugar kind and is worth the extra calories IMO.

📌 Save for later and share with a friend who might want to try it!

PSA: My #MacroFriendly posts can be used as as ideas for those who use a #MindfulMacros approach (AKA not tracking, but structuring meals based on how their body responds best to protein, carbs, and fat) as well. This is the goal place for some to reach after they learn the ropes by tracking for a period of time. Remember, there is no right or wrong way to find your forever way to eat!
