Eat Skinny: Tofu Scramble Recipe with Kraft Singles

Pin It PIN IT!

Happy Friday guys! It’s not just Friday, it’s Memorial Day Weekend Friday, which means a LONG weekend for many of us! Many of us doesn’t include me since I work for myself. Boo. Either way, thought I’d kick off the weekend with an AWESOME breakfast that’s delicious and vegetarian, tofu scramble with good ol’ American cheese. Guys, it really is as mouth watering as it looks.

I was chosen to do a post making up a recipe using Kraft Singles by Foodbuzz and I got really excited. Growing up, Kraft Singles were it. I mean, who didn’t love the bright orange squares their mom would adorn their sandwiches with, mix in with their eggs or top their baked potatoes?

My mom, as I’ve alluded to before, is an incredible cook. So we didn’t eat a whole lotta grilled cheese. However, when my mom was away, my dad would whip us up some gooey grilled cheeses and it was a like a holiday for us. We’d also sneak slices onto our mashed potatoes too. Even now, at the ripe age of…20 something, I still have to have a good ol’ Kraft single when I’m feeling a little nostalgic. Except now, I do weird things like put it on tofu.

Now, I don’t eat it as much because, let’s get real, it’s not the best thing on the planet for you. However, having just one slice will only set you back 60 calories, 4.5 grams of fat and will also give you 4 grams of protein. Not bad for just one slice. Because one can’t survive on just cheese alone, I paired it perfectly over a skinny tofu scramble.

I love tofu, it’s my go-to now. It’s extremely low in fat, calories and sodium and is full of healthy, plant protein. 1/5 of a normal package has 7 grams of protein and just 70 calories. Because it’s so flavorless on it’s own, I sauteed it with shiitake mushrooms, chives, home grown onions and some spice.

Guys, it’s so good, so healthy and SO filling. Not only that, it’s great for Memorial Day. Because y’all know, there’s nothing more American than American cheese. [Said in my best deep Southern drawl]

    I love the IDEA of a tofu scramble but I've never actually made one.  Love how this makes for a great "egg and cheese" sandwich.  But way healthier!

    I really need to try tofu. Think I can get the chef hubby to cook it?? And I grew up with Kraft American cheese (grilled cheese sandwiches!) so no arguments there.... we have probably 2 packs in the fridge right now!
