The Sportsman’s Breakfast is one of the healthiest meals on my entire blog. It’s packed full of protein and lots of other essential vitamins. It’s the perfect way to start the day.
This dish is so easy to make and best of all, it’s diet-friendly. Can you believe it only has 274 calories per serving, plus it’s loaded with vitamins? The famous McDonald’s steak, egg, and cheese biscuit will hit you with 520 calories and it’s loaded with fat and carbs, and it isn’t loaded with vitamins. You’ll feel guilty if you eat that!
The Sportsman’s Breakfast is the perfect diet food–it will fill you up quickly and keep you full for hours and you won’t feel guilty. You’ll feel proud! You can make this dish faster than you can drive and wait for takeout, so what are you waiting for?
Feel free to print our recipe card:
This goes great with toast or biscuits, but most of the time we eat it just as it is–with no sides. This not only is good for breakfast, but it’s good for lunch, dinner, or whenever the urge strikes–even at 3 am!
The good, the bad and the delicious…
- The Sportsman’s Breakfast is very low in calories and high in potassium, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C and low in carbs and sugars.
- It’s also high fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

To make this dish more diet-friendly…
- To help lower the cholesterol and fat, omit some of the eggs or use an egg substitute, such as Egg Beaters by ConAgra Foods. Instead of using whole milk use almond milk. Also, if you have a copper pan you can omit the olive oil for frying because oil is not needed.
- To help lower the sodium, omit the added salt and instead of using canned store-bought salsa use fresh tomatoes or make your own sodium free salsa. Veggies and meat typically have at least a small amount of sodium and since this dish is loaded with veggies and meat, it’s impossible to remove all of the sodium, but you can play around with the veggies and use veggies with less sodium.
