If you can’t already tell I’m on a breakfast kick this month and this easy breakfast sandwich is no slouch.
When I was forced to go dairy free a few years ago I was also forced to come up with my own breakfast sandwich as I could no longer go out to get them. Not only did I have to worry about dairy on the griddle, but on the toast and in the eggs. Places like McDonald’s were no longer safe either as they’d just shifted due to massive public pressure, to use butter instead of margarine in their products. Not a huge loss I know because one really shouldn’t be eating fast food – we all know it’s not healthy, but along those same lines up until that point I had known I could always eat there because they didn’t use real ingredients.
But I digress, this sandwich is delicious and I make them for myself and the kiddo as a quick school morning meal.
Easy Breakfast Sandwich
1 egg, scrambled (I do this in the microwave, you can scramble 1 egg on high for 2 minutes)
2 slices toasted bread (kiddo is partial to sourdough, I am loving Udi’s gluten free rye these days)
Salt & pepper to taste
Dairy free margarine to spread on the toast
- 1 egg, scrambled (I do this in the microwave, you can scramble 1 egg on high for 2 minutes)
- 2 slices toasted bread (kiddo is partial to sourdough, I am loving Udi’s gluten free rye these days)
- Sliced tomato
- Salt & pepper to taste
- Dairy free margarine to spread on the toast
See? I wasn’t kidding. This is seriously the easiest breakfast sandwich in the entire world. In the time it takes your toast to cook in the toaster oven, if you make this my way you can cook the egg in the microwave at the same time.
Want to dress this up? Add cheese, sprouts, avocado, shaved red onion… the list goes on.
We’ve gone through many toaster ovens over the years, but the one we have now I absolutely adore. It’s by Hamilton Beach and is four funtion oven – bake, broil, toast and convection. Toaster ovens have gotten larger over the years too. This one is actually large enough to fit a personal pizza, has two rack positions, and is large enough to fit a small casserole dish. This last Thanksgiving I used it to cook my gluten free stuffing while everything else was being cooked in the big oven. Here’s a link to the very model I own. Hope you like it.
