Good Morning Sunshine!!
If you haven’t said it already, you’ll be saying it soon.
School is about to start and here’s a quick nutritious breakfast that your kids can grab on the way out the door.
These breakfast sandwiches keep my high school boys satisfied until lunch.
2 Whole-wheat English muffins (I like the Whole Foods store brand)
2 slices of Canadian bacon (LOVE Wellshire Farms Canadian Brand and Canadian style)
1 large egg
2 egg whites
2 TBL. Grated cheese or a cheese slice of your choice
2 slices of fresh tomato (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Throw your English muffins in the toaster and put your Canadian bacon in a small non-stick skillet on medium to warm. Put your eggs in a small bowl and whisk with a fork. After about 1 minute – remove the bacon from the pan and add your eggs and cheese. Move the eggs from the edges to the center of the pan gently with a rubber spatula to scramble. Season with salt and pepper.
Put the bacon on the bottom of one half of the English muffins, top each with a tomato slice and divide eggs over each. Cover with remaining muffin halves, wrap in wax or parchment paper and they’re ready to take to the bus stop!
