I’m back! I know it’s been FOREVER since I’ve posted anything. For those of you who don’t know, I had a baby 3 months ago! He’s been keeping me very occupied along with the blog I have for him!
In other exciting news, I got a new camera for my birthday! It’s the Canon Rebel which I’m so obsessed with! I’ve been doing a lot of research, and this seems to have the most bang for my buck.
Now, back to the food! As you may know, having a newborn is a LOT of work. Those first few weeks are a blur. I don’t even remember what I ate half the time. I would just grab the closest thing with the most protein (usually a spoonful of almond butter or a handful of nuts) and be on my way.
Stew was home with me in the mornings for the first few weeks, so I was actually able to eat a good breakfast. My go-to-meal was some variation of an egg sandwich. I figured it had protein and would keep me full until the next time I was able to eat! I finally had time to take a decent picture of it, so I can actually share it with you!!
This particular sandwich has turkey bacon, brie, egg, and lettuce on it. My plan ahead trick is to cook all the turkey bacon in the beginning of the week and keep it in a ziplock bag so it’s ready for me! All I really have to do is cook the egg. I also like to switch it up and put spinach, mozzarella or cheddar, and avocado on there. The sky is the limit when it comes to sandwiches!! I hope you enjoy!
The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
2 slices whole grain bread
1 slice turkey bacon, halved
1 slice brie cheese
salt and pepper
Coat the bottom of a nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Cook the egg to your liking (mine was over medium). Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
To assemble the sandwich, place some lettuce, the two halves of bacon, brie, and egg on the bottom slice of bread. Top with the other slice of bread.
Spray the same skillet with cooking spray and put the sandwich in the pan (much like a grilled cheese). Cook until the bottom piece of bread is golden brown, about 2 minutes. Spray the top piece of bread with cooking spray and flip. Cook until the cheese is melted and the bottom piece of bread is golden brown, about another minute. Feel free to switch out ingredients! You can always use a different kind of cheese, spinach, and pork bacon instead. Enjoy!
