Out-the-Door Breakfast Sandwich

Standard

Getting out the door in the morning with a full belly is a struggle for a lot of people. And, we’ve all heard it before, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. I agree, breakfast gets your day started on the right foot. Plus, if I’m hungry all I will think about is food until I’ve eaten, and that’s not a very productive way to start my day! I tend to have the same few things for breakfast during the week: green smoothie, overnight oats, yogurt & granola or a breakfast sandwich.

I know what your thinking, “I don’t have time to make a breakfast sandwich in the morning.” Well, that’s just not true. This sandwich takes less than 5min to make, because it uses the microwave! First I put a handful of whatever greens I have in the fridge into a microwave-safe bowl (spinach usually, but this time it was mixed baby kales), and microwave for 1min.

Next comes 1 egg + 1 egg white and my favorite part, some Siracha! This step is totally flexible. You could use 1 egg, 2 eggs, 2 egg whites, etc etc. Also, if you don’t like spicy foods you could use less Siracha than I do, or you could just use some fresh ground black pepper.

Once it’s all mixed, place it in the microwave for 1 min. It will come out mostly cooked, but then I sprinkle a little shredded cheese on top and microwave for 45 sec. Then, use a fork to pull the egg away from the edge of the bowl & place it on your bread!

You can use whatever kind of sandwich bread you like, I always have these Multigrain Rounds on-hand. Also, I prefer to toast mine for this sandwich. Some sort of breakfast meat is always a great addition here, it’s just a matter of time. If you have time to cook up some turkey bacon, that’s awesome! If not, a slice or two of deli turkey could bulk up this sandwich very nicely.
