Panera Egg White, Avocado and Spinach Power Breakfast Sandwich (Copycat)

I adore this popular and healthy breakfast sandwich at Panera. My skinny version is super yummy too! It’s much lower in fat and calories than Panera. For the bagel, I used one of those 110 calorie bagel thins. Below are the directions to cook in a panini maker, George Forman grill, or in a pan on the stovetop. Each breakfast sandwich has 277 calories and 10 grams fat. Plus it has 7 grams of fiber! Enjoy your breakfast!

  • 1 bagel thin, I used Thomas’ everything bagel or use your favorite, see shopping tips 
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 large slice of tomato
  • 4 spinach leaves
  • ¼ avocado (2 tablespoons) 
  • 1 slice (¾ ounce) Jarlsberg lite Swiss cheese or your favorite reduced-fat cheese
  • Mustard
  • 1 teaspoon reduced-fat butter


  • Preheat panini maker or George Forman Grill.
  • Add egg whites to a small bowl. I used a 4¾ inch glass custard cup. Make sure to cover tightly so the egg whites don’t pop out while cooking. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute, 20 seconds.
  • Spread the top and bottom of bagel thin with ½ teaspoon butter on each. Spread inside top with mustard. Spread the inside bottom with avocado. Top with the cooked egg whites. Add the tomato and spinach leaves on the egg whites and top with cheese. Place the top of bagel thin. Cook in panini maker about 3 minutes until golden brown and cheese has melted.
  • To make in a pan on the cooktop: Coat a nonstick pan with cooking spray. Place sandwich in pan. Cook over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes, turn over, reduce heat to medium. Continue to cook until cheese is melted and golden brown.

Tried this recipe?Let me know how it was!


  1. Sorry I didn’t say microwave. Yes, you cook the egg whites in microwave for about 1 minute, 20 seconds.

  2. Sounds tasty but I don’t have a microwave? Any hints on how to cook eggs whites on stove top?

  3. Jane you can easily cook the egg whites on the stovetop. Heat a little cooking oil or light butter to a small nonstick pan. Or, coat the pan with cooking spray. Separate 2 eggs and add just the white to a small bowl. Do not mix. Pour whites into pan. Cook, without scrambling, until cooked through. Remove with spatula and add to sandwich.
    My best,
