THE breakfast sandwich

Breakfast is that meal for me where I could eat it for each meal of the day. I would honestly be satisfied with cereal and milk for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Cereal is the best. Cereal is low maintenance and simple. It gets the job done.

Sometimes, however, your body craves something hot, melty, and spicy. Like this morning, I just had to have something with a bit of crunch and substance to it. Breakfast sandwiches offer the best combination of these feelings. Let's discuss this.

Breakfast sandwiches are kind of like that girl that you love to hate. She always looks effortlessly put together, and seems to have everything in her life in place. From the outside, she makes everything look easy -- like throwing together some cereal in a bowl and topping it with milk. Easy peasy.

If you are one of these people, that can literally throw on jeans and a t-shirt and look like you are wearing Chanel couture, I have major envy. I definitely require more time and effort to be put together. Much like this breakfast sandwich. When you break it down, it's simple. When you are actually taking the time to put the elements together, it does take time, effort and a bit of patience. Yes, it was worth it.

 THE breakfast sandwich recipe (Makes 2 sandwiches)

4 pieces of bacon
4 eggs (or egg whites)
1/2 cup broccoli, diced,
1/2 cup zucchini, diced
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
2 thick slices of tomato
4 slices of cheese (I used mozzarella)
2 tsp red pepper jelly
2 english muffins

1. Cook bacon in a frying pan to almost desired crispness. Remove from Pan and place on paper towel.

2. In a bowl whisk together eggs, broccoli, zucchini, red pepper flakes and pepper.  In the same pan used for the bacon cook the egg mixture.  Begin to toast your english muffin.

3. Once the egg mixture is cooked, top with tomato and cheese slices. Put the bacon slices back into the pan and warm until the cheese has melted and your english muffin is toasted.

4. Spread 1 tsp on to one half of the english muffin. Top with the cooked omlette and finish with two pieces of bacon (don't worry if some of the mixture falls out of the sandwich).

5. Serve with a nice hot cup of coffee, or beverage of your choice.

6. Read the weekend flyers.
