I have to wake up early every weekday morning. I either work early or at least have running I have to do. I’m always out the door before 7:30. I used to not eat breakfast. I didn’t have time or wasn’t hungry. I always felt more hungry in the afternoon if I ate breakfast, but didn’t feel so hungry when I didn’t eat breakfast. I’m weird, I know. However, I was always hungry for fast food breakfast. A yummy breakfast sandwich, bagel, donuts, iced cappuccino, hash browns. If it was unhealthy, I was all about it.
It sounds horrible I know, but instead of spending 10 minutes at home making something healthy, I would leave 10 minutes early to go by Tim Hortons to get a blueberry bagel toasted with cream cheese, with a boston creme donut and a french vanilla iced cappuccino to drink. It’s not like that was an everyday occurrence, but it was definitely too often. Way to often.
I don’t want to deprive myself. I just want choose to eat healthy, delicious food instead of junk now. Which leads me to..
Turkey Bacon Breakfast Sandwich
1 English Muffin (With 100 calories or less; I use Thomas Light Multi-Grain)
2 slices of Turkey Bacon
1/4 of a cup of Egg Beaters
You will need two small pans. One small single egg pan and another small frying pan. I put both on medium heat with a few drops of olive oil.
For the turkey bacon, I always cut my slices in half so I end up with four smaller pieces of bacon. Cook for about 3 minutes on each side or until crispy.
For the eggs, I use the single egg pan, because it fits on the english muffin perfectly. I pour the egg beaters into the pan and put a dash of pepper and salt on top. Let it cook for a few minutes, then carefully flip. I like it to be a little crispy on the outside. It should take about 4 minutes to cook fully.
You could toast the english muffin in the toaster if you wish. I like to open the muffin, put the cooked egg and bacon inside and put it in the single fry pan to heat it up.
It is delicious, easy, healthier and should only take about 10 minutes to make. Instead of leaving earlier to hit it up a fast food place, I just make this at home some mornings. You could even make this at night, put in the fridge and microwave it in the morning for a really quick breakfast.
Let me know if you try this and I hope you have a wonderful Monday!!
