I don’t know about you but I love breakfast.  Whether it’s eggs, turkey bacon, toast, and a fruit cup or simply a granola bar I have to have my breakfast in the morning or else I can’t function.  I know that it can be hard to fit in a decent breakfast with the hustle and bustle that comes with the morning rush, but I have found a few quick and easy breakfast meals that work for me that keep me full until lunch time.  Some of these meals include:

  • 3/4 cup of Greek yogurt mixed with a sliced banana and a 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • Granola bar and a clementine
  • a toaster waffle topped with 1 Tbs peanut butter and a handful of grapes

Those meals are great and definitely keep me full, but my absolute favorite quick and easy breakfast to make is an egg sandwich.  The way I prepare it may sound a little strange, but trust me on this and give it a try.

Egg Sandwich

Ingredients:

2 slices of bread

1/4 avocado

2 slices of tomato

1 egg and 1 egg white

Directions:

1.) Slice 1/4 of the avocado and cut 2 slices of tomato.  Set aside along with 2 slices of bread.

2.) Spray a cereal bowl with nonstick spray and whisk together the egg, egg white, and 2 Tbs of milk.  (This is where it may start to sound strange but trust me.) Place the bowl in the microwave and cook for 1 minute.  After 1 minute check the eggs.  If it is still runny, cook for another 30 seconds.

3.) Take the bowl out of the microwave and slide a fork under the egg to make sure it isn’t sticking.  Slide the egg onto one of the bread slices.  Top the egg with the tomato slices and then the avocado slices.  Salt and pepper to taste (you can see in the photos above that I salted and peppered mine before I cooked it which works too it’s just a matter of personal preference) and top with second bread slice and enjoy!!

All in all this is a very balanced breakfast and it keeps me running until lunch time.  This recipe is great because there is a lot of versatility and it takes me about 5 minutes to make from start to finish.  You can add a slice of cheese (I love it with Swiss cheese), turkey bacon, a Tbs of hummus, cook in a handful of chopped spinach in with the egg, the possibilities are seemingly endless.  To make this breakfast even better you could add a side of grapes or an orange.

I really like to enjoy my breakfast with a glass of green tea!
