  • When selecting deli meats, look for ones with a low sodium content for a healthier option.
  • For the cheeses, choose a combination that you like the taste of and that melts well.

  • For the eggs: Replace the milk with almond milk for a dairy-free option. The benefit of this substitution is that it is a healthier option that will still provide a creamy texture. The thinking behind this substitution is to provide a healthier alternative to the traditional recipe.
  • For the filling: Replace the deli ham and turkey with cooked diced chicken for a protein-rich option. The benefit of this substitution is that it will provide a more filling and nutritious meal. The thinking behind this substitution is to provide a source of protein that is not processed meat.
