A Little "Sammich" for Your Morning

"I could write a blog, I have thoughts." -Julia & Julia

Anyone else spending their Sunday glued to the TV like me? It's a beautiful thing after a great weekend with my girly-friends!

On Friday morning, I concocted a little breakfast dish that I had to share. On Pinterest, I found this photo and the wheels started turning.

Shutter Bean has a fun post about frying an egg inside a bell pepper and throwing it into your regular 'ol breakfast sandwich. YUM. I could spend the rest of my life eating breakfast sandwiches. I love everything about them and unfortunately they can add up (even at $2 a piece!) plus they aren't the healthiest for you!

My absolute favorite breakfast sandwich was brought into this world by Starbucks. Starbucks has brought us many delightful things, but this sandwich takes the cake!

Let's stay focused here or I may have to hop on over to Starbucks and eat one for dinner!

Last year, I started making quick breakfast sandwiches in the morning as a quick "out the door" meal. People would later ride in my car and wonder why so many plates were roaming in the back seat. Blame the sandwich!

My breakfast sandwiches consist of:

1 bagel (toasted)
1 egg
1 cheese (american, or pepperjack tastes great too!)

I fry the egg (no juicy yolks for me!) and place it on my warm sandwich and scoot to work.

Friday, I added the pepper! I cracked my egg inside of a red bell pepper and let her cook. I assembled my sandwich and headed out the door. Warning: don't be too distracted by your sandwich and forget your lunch! :)

It was a heavenly meal for breakfast and I would highly recommend it! If you're the more adventurous type, you should test out Shutter Bean's recipe.

Bell Pepper Egg-in-a-hole

2 teaspoons olive oil

  • 1 bell pepper (any color) cut into four 1/2 inch thick rings
  • 4 large eggs
  • coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • 4 slices multi-grain bread (I use English Muffins)
In a large cast-iron skillet or nonstick pan, heat oil over medium high heat. Add bell pepper and cook for 1 minute. Crack 1 egg into the middle of each pepper ring. Season with salt & pepper and cook until the egg whites are mostly set but yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently flip and cook 1 minute more for over easy. Sprinkle with Parmesan and place egg on a slice of toast- or serve with an English muffin like I did!
This recipe serves 4 people.

Now, I only have a short amount of time to buzz to the store, pick up a few things from school, and park my butt back on the couch where it belongs for the VMA's!

  1. Yummy. You made me hungry. I am a huge fan of a breakfast sandwich. I have been buying the Jimmy Dean De-Lights ones.
