Recipe: breakfast souffle

This is from a Slimming World recipe book, Meals for One, and I can't find a link anywhere so here's a generic sort of thing.

Ingredients for one:
spray oil
breakfast stuff - you can use lean bacon, mushroom, sausage, tomato (or anything else, I guess)
two larger eggs, separated
garlic salt and pepper

You also need a suitable sized non stick pan, not too big.

Spray some oil into the pan and gently fry the 'stuff' until cooked.  If liquid comes out of the tomato, either strain or fry it off.

Remove from the pan and wipe the pan with kitchen paper, respraying if needed.

Whisk the egg whites to a firm peak.
Season the egg yolks and add the cooked ingredients.
Fold the egg whites into the yolk mixture gently.
Pour this into the pan and cook over a medium heat until the base is cooked and browned (lift up gently with a spatula to check).
Then pop the pan under a hot grill to cook the top.  If you're careful to keep the handle out of the direct line of fire of the heat, it should be fine.

Eat straight away.

I used ham, mushroom and tomato but next time I will add a Heck cooked chicken sausage or two, sliced for half a syn.
I'm also wondering if you could beat a cheese wedge or two into the egg yolk before adding the extras.  I must give it a go sometime and see.  They would contribute to your healthy extra A

For me, this is a keeper and would work for other meals too.
