Low Carb Breakfast “Sandwich”
** http://www.handcraftedbyradar.com for more recipes **
My favourite breakfast, one I can, and sometimes do, eat every day, is eggs over easy with toast. I will need a regular bread substitute very soon, because that’s my comfort food breakfast and with bread being off the menu, I’m a little bit adrift. My other regular breakfast is oatmeal – also off the menu for a while….carb queen struck down. Oh, the inhumanities!!
Being adrift but quite hungry meant I needed, not wanted, but needed, a quick breakfast. The rumbly in my tumbly was quite noisy and my coffee this morning did nothing to shut it up.
I often buy precooked and frozen sausage patties by the box from Costco, and happily, I still had some in the very bottom of the chest freezer….any further down and I would have had to call my son or crawl in. Top cupboards and chest freezers are not meant for shorter people. I’m 5’4” and there’s a stool in the bathroom I use for the cupboards, but it doesn’t help much with the contents of the bottom of the freezer. I believe these things are designed by tall women with no sympathy or regular height men who suffer a hero complex.
So now I’ve shown a tiny bit of how my brain works, on to breakfast.
- 2 pork sausage patties (or whatever kind you like/have)
- 2 large eggs, beaten
- 1 TB heavy whipping cream
- 2 TB cream cheese
- coconut oil to lube up the frying pan for the eggs
- banana peppers because why wouldn’t you?
Brown the patties (or cook them if yours are raw) in a frying pan and cook the eggs in a non stick with the coconut oil.
Put the eggs into a coffee cup (or a bowl – I use a coffee cup because I have so very, very many of them), pour in the cream and whip the works with a fork or whisk while the coconut oil melts in the pan. Pour the egg mixture in and cook on medium heat. Let the bottom of the eggs set, then push one side to the other and let the uncooked egg run down into the space left.
Once they are basically done, fold in the cream cheese onto one side of the eggs and top with the other.
Stack a sausage patty, the eggs and the other sausage patty, then some banana peppers (if using).
I warn you at this point, the whole works is pretty darn hot and not suitable for picking up with bare hands. I used a fork.
For this reason, I miss bread. Otherwise, this was a good breakfast. The patties didn’t really take any longer than the eggs so all was ready in 10 or 15 minutes, which my tummy thought was adequate.
