I love breakfast sandwiches in the morning, but lets face it any sandwich not homemade is gonna be higher in calories, sodium, fat and chemicals. Thats not to say that i don’t LOVE Del Taco breakfast burritos or breakfast hot pockets, because i do but i know that they are bad so i try and make them infrequent.
Recently i started making my own and was shocked by how easy it was!
Here is what i use:
My go to veggies are onion, bell pepper, and tomato but mostly I use whatever is on hand in the fridge. Today that is onion and bell pepper.
I use 2 eggs, though really i should use 1 egg and 1 egg white. I add a little bit of milk or half and half to add a little fluff to the eggs. Blend with a fork to scramble then set aside.
Start a little oil heating up in a skillet, i used olive oil. I add the onions, pepper and garlic powder (use whatever herbs you want) and let the onions cook for a minute or two then i add the bell peppers. I let eat veggie (or fruit in the case of a tomato) cook for a minute before I add the next. Then pour in your scrambled eggs.
If i have a lot of time in the morning I turn the heat on low and put a lid on to let it cook slowly, if i am in a hurry i turn the heat on medium and cook and scramble it faster. The faster way is messier but it is faster.
No, i am not perfect at cooking hahaha, but it will still taste great!
When the eggs are almost done I put a whole wheat english muffin in the toaster and cut some cheese slices. I put the cheese on the hot english muffin so it can start to melt then put the egg on then the meat. If there is spinach in the house i will throw some leaves on to get in some extra veggies. My brother adds mayo, my mom adds spicy brown mustard, and i either eat it dry or add salsa for some extra taste.
When i make too many eggs, like i did today, i turn it into two open faced sandwiches.
What do you put on your breakfast sandwich?
