Hello all! Today has been marvelous so far. I rarely have weekend days off and last night I found myself planning all the things I needed to do during my days off and realized that I can’t really do any of them on a Sunday, so I have a day to do nothing but relax! I’m headed over to my friend’s house after this to relax in the sunshine by her pool, sounds like a perfect way to spend the day!
Since my work day usually starts at 6 AM, I really enjoy being able to make myself breakfast on my days off. I was really feeling a breakfast sandwich this morning and since for once I actually had everything I needed to make once (miracle) breakfast was a no brainer.
I follow Peanut Butter Fingers and have for a while now and always see her breakfast posts. When she makes breakfast sandwiches, she puts jelly on them, something I thought was a bit strange at first. For some reason this morning I was all for trying something different so I thought I would give it a try. Oh. My. Goodness. It was delicious!
Go make a breakfast sandwich and put jelly on it, right now!
You’re welcome in advance.
Sweet and Salty Breakfast Sandwich
Inspired by this
Ingredients (for the way I made it this morning).
- 1 whole egg + 1 egg white
- 1 slice cheddar cheese
- 1 whole wheat sandwich thin
- 1 tbsp strawberry jam
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Fry up the eggs to your liking. Sometimes I enjoy a softer yolk but this morning I broke the yolk so it cooked hard.
- While your eggs are frying, pop the sandwich thin into the toaster or toaster oven to warm.
- Once the bread is warm, take one side, add the slice of cheese, and broil in the toaster oven to melt.
- Spread the other side with strawberry jam. I used this delicious Strawberry Pinot Noir fruit spread I got from the Made in Oregon store. It is like strawberry heaven in a jar!
- Once egg is cooked, place it on top of the melted cheese side and complete the sandwich with the jelly side.
This sandwich was a little messy (as are most things that I eat) and I wish I would have had an English muffin instead of a sandwich thin. All in all, it was exactly what I was wanting for breakfast and kept me full until lunch!
I also hit up the farmer’s market this morning. Oregon market’s are so different than California ones. I miss working for the farm and getting free fruit and veggies! Stone fruit is so expensive up here!
I did get some phenomenal blueberries though, and some kettle corn, of course 🙂
