Do you eat breakfast in the morning?
You know it’s the most important meal of the day, your mom always told you that. But no, you don’t, do you?
You hit the snooze button a dozen times. Once it is clear that you will be late no matter how fast you get ready, you compel your body through force of sheer will to toss off the warm hug of blankets and drag yourself to your feet.
Then: quick shower, coffee, get dressed, grab your stuff and book out the door. Maybe you have time to pick up a quick little breakfast sandwich at a fast food restaurant or, god forbid, 7-11.
Please stop. That’s gross.
Instead, on your next day off, make up a few of these fresh and homemade breakfast sandwiches. Wrapped in parchment paper, you are just 30 microwaved seconds from a truly delicious, homemade breakfast.
Step 1) Breakfast sausage. Jimmy Dean’s Hot is a good one. Make patties. Brown those bad boys up.
Step 2) Make some biscuits. Homemade earns rainbow brownie points, but Pillsbury Grands are nice and easy too.
Step 3) Fry some eggs. I preheat a non-stick pan over low heat for a few minutes, then brown some butter (want more flavor in your eggs? Give the butter some flavor!). Crack an egg into a small ramekin (not the pan itself), and, with the pan tilted slightly, carefully slide the egg into the pan. Cook until side one is done, then ever so gently flip. No spatulas. You can do it!
Step 4) Add cheese, maybe some stoneground mustard, or whatever other toppings you like.
Step 5) Eat it, yo.
When you make these sandwiches fresh, you can have a nice gooey yolk. If you are reheating, the egg will cook fully, but it is still delicious.
Just wrap your leftover sandwiches in parchment paper, and pop them in the microwave for 30 seconds.
It’s like breakfast magic!
