Breakfast Sammie

If you read this blog on a regular basis, you know I eat breakfast at my desk at work. This sometimes leaves me with no variety. I came up with another option for some of my breakfast's. What's great about these little breakfast sammies is that they are nutritional, filling, tasty, and easy as pie.

For me, I like to make all of them at one time, which is normally 6 because that's how many English muffins are in a box. I put them in baggies and throw them in the refrigerator. Then in the mornings I just grab one out and toss it into my purse. When I'm ready to eat at work, I'll heat them up and enjoy a great breakfast with little to no effort!

These are also great frozen. The toppings on this are endless so use your imagination. For me, I like it simple. Here's my recipe:

1 box English Muffins (I get whole wheat)
6 slices of Canadian bacon or cooked ham
3 slices of cheese, cut in half
6 large eggs
Salt & pepper, to taste

1) Cut English muffins in half and set up your assemble line. Go ahead and add 1 slice of Canadian bacon or ham and 1/2 slice of cheese to the muffin.

2) Spray a small frying pan (mine is 6 in) with non-stick cooking spray and heat up pan on med heat.

3) Meanwhile, in a small bowl scramble 1 egg. Add salt and pepper to taste. Then pour into pre-heated pan. Spread out the egg so it covers the whole pan.

4) Cook until the bottom is set but not burned. Take the pan off the burner and flip the egg pancake with a spatula. Try to keep it intact. The heat from the pan will finish cooking the other side of the egg. Don't over cook because you'll be re-heating the sammie and it will cook a little more then.

5) Fold the egg pancake in half. Then fold it in half again and place on the English muffin. Repeat steps 2-5 until all 6 sammies are done.

6) Wrap in individual bags or containers and toss into the fridge or freezer.

To re-heat:
1) Heat in microwave for 10-15 seconds, flip sammie over and heat again for 10-15 seconds. Repeat as desired. Be careful of the cheese, it melts fast!
