Mom always said, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” But time is at a premium in the morning, and without mom there to pour your juice and butter your toast you may often be tempted to skip a homemade breakfast and resort to less-civilized options. (I’m looking at you, donuts)

DO NOT GIVE INTO THIS TEMPTATION.

After 20+ years of wiping your own ass, you likely have the morning routine down to a science. Your first meal of the day deserves equal efficiency and consideration. So, without further ado, here’s a quick, filling, and (most importantly) delicious breakfast to start your day strong.

Cook time: 8 min

Ingredients

  • 1 slice of bread
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 slices turkey/ham/meat of your choice
  • 2 tbsp hummus or 1 slice of cheese
  • Your favorite hot sauce or salsa

Profile

  • High protein (not hungry in an hour)
  • Low carb (no crash)
  • Balanced Fats and Oils (the good kind, your body needs them)

Instructions

  • Turn stove top on medium high heat and place 10’’ sauce pan on stove
  • Get out ingredients from fridge
  • Grease the pan with small amount of oil or cooking spray
  • Crack the eggs into the pan, salt and pepper to taste
  • Put bread in toaster and start toasting
  • Let eggs cook till whites are about 2/3 solid (maybe 3-4 min depending on heat of stove)
  • Flip eggs over
  • Toast should be ready. Place toast on plate and add desired amount of your favorite hummus or cheese
  • Add meat to the pan
  • Remove eggs and put on top of toast
  • Flip meat, fry up for another 30 seconds
  • Put meat on top of sandwich
  • Add your favorite hot sauce or salsa to taste. ENJOY
  • I prefer my eggs over easy (makes a delicious combination with the hummus) and to eat with a fork and knife as I read an article or two to orient me to the day. However, for the on-the-go type, break the yolk to cook the egg through, add another piece of toast to the top and you have a quick and delicious breakfast sandwich that should hold up for the train/bus/car.

Finally, you’re encouraged to use this recipe as a canvas onto which you paint your own personal morning-masterpiece. Use some of last-night’s steak as the meat. Add sliced tomato, avocado, or basil to freshen things up. The possibilities are endless and the day is yours thanks to a quick, filling, delicious breakfast brought to you by…yourself
