A Feta Cheese Stuffed Protein Pancake Sandwich

Protein Quesadilla

If you, like me, have a soft spot for feta cheese and you like your breakfasts (or snacks) to be comprised primarily of protein and fat (with a good amount of fiber thrown into the mix), you’re going to love this recipe! It actually has a lot of family in this blog. Yup, this recipe is a direct descendent of my Feta Protein Quesadilla Pancakes. There are two things I want to bring your attention to before I dive into the ingredients list though. First thing: the Next Protein Pow Newsletter is out next Friday and this one is going to come packed full of amazing recipe resources as well as exclusive protein deals from some of my favorite protein companies in the UK, US, and Canada. To sign up for the newsletter, click here. Second thing: the second Protein Pow podcast episode is now up! You can access it by clicking here. The podcasts are still not whoa-incredible but I’m learning a lot as I go along so do suscribe to them. From next Wednesday onwards, I’ll release a new podcast episode every Wednesday. They’ll all be under ten minutes and focused on giving you the ins and outs of cooking with protein powders of all signs and denominations. I will also feature some protein-loving-fitness-beasts on it so the whole thing will be like a bona fide protein party. Join us!

Ingredients:

2 egg whites
1 whole egg
1 tablespoon psyllium husks
1 tablespoon Sunwarrior’s Warrior Blend Protein Powder (Unflavored)

Directions:

1. Whisk ingredients together and pancake fry on a non stick pan.

2. When the pancake is done, top it with 25g feta cheese (about 3 tablespoons worth) and fold it over.

3. Leave it in the pan for a bit to let the cheese melt.

4. Plate and enjoy.

Macros per Serving (out of 1):

246kcals
29g protein
7g carbs
12g fat (from the feta and yolk)
5.2g fiber

And then? Well, then I ate it with all the gusto in the world. It was a savory feta-packed cross between an omelet and some good old fashioned pita bread. Mmm. With the feta it even kind of reminded me of a doughy Greek Tiropita. At the same time, it conjured up imaged of stuffed french toast (you know, the kind you stuff with banana) which make me think that YES! I must try that next – with Protein Bread!

PS: On an unrelated note, LOOK!
