I woke up one morning craving a breakfast sandwich and thought… why don’t I make my own healthy version, way better and cheaper than some McDonald’s greasy fattening sandwich! So I went to my local whole foods and bought me some whole wheat english muffin, organic free range eggs, turkey bacon, and organic cheese. This recipe is for 6 sandwiches, there are only 5 in the picture because I ate one :) and it was lovely!!! I thought it would be nice to write some inspirational quotes on top to give myself a little pep and a smile to start my day! Who knows, one little positive phrase could make your day so much better!

To get started, preheat your oven to 350°. Beat 4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs in a bowl with the spices listed. Don’t freak out about the color of the eggs, the cajun seasoning makes them look a little funky! Grease 6 spaces in the muffin pan with some Pam. Pour evenly in the muffin pan. Next take a baking pan and place the strips of turkey bacon side by side. Place in the oven for 6 minutes. After 6 minutes, turn the bacon, then place your eggs to bake for 9 minutes. I ended up putting the bacon on the top rack and putting the oven on high broil for a few minutes to get the bacon extra crispy!

While the eggs and bacon are baking, slice up your muffins.

Next up, get your grill pan or panini press and start to heat it. Assemble your sandwiches. Place as many as you can on the grill and press down on each side to total about 5 minutes, or until the muffins are golden brown and the cheese is starting to melt.

Once done, set aside and get out your wax paper.

Wrap up your sandwiches with the wax paper. And if you choose to label them or make inspirational sayings, add those now. Place in the freezer.

When you’re ready to eat them, place in the microwave for 2-2:30 minutes or until the middle is warm and the cheese is melted. Pair with some fresh fruit or yogurt and you’ve got yourself a great low fat breakfast! I won’t lie, it felt like I was eating some McDonald’s! Next time I will make some breakfast burritos! I used all organic products, but you can make whatever you prefer to use!

What you’ll need:
6 Organic whole wheat english muffins
4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs, Organic and free range
A few dashes of garlic, onion powder, cajun seasoning, and pepper
A package of Organic Turkey bacon
6 slices of Organic American Cheese
Pam

    Have not been on your blog in forever! These look wonderful! I used to make breakfast sandwiches and wrap in foil. Put in 250° oven while waking the kids up for the day. Sing really loud stupid songs to make them move. By the time they are dressed for beach or sledding, the sandwich is warm and oh so good. Grab each a drink and a piece of fruit as you walk out the door.
