A lot of people have asked me what I eat for breakfast on a typical morning and my answer, for the past 3 or 4 years, has been pretty much the same. An egg sandwich on an english muffin with avocado and hot sauce. The base of this sandwich is homemade whole wheat english muffins. Which a) saves a ton of money and b) make this sandwich so delicious. We get our eggs from a coworker who has chickens (super jealous). And, of course, avocado and hot sauce make everything better.
When Matt and I first moved in together we met in the middle of our two jobs which meant a 60 mile ONE WAY commute for both of us. For 2 and a half hours a day, we both sat in our cars. Since we were in the snow belt, this trip was often made much longer. Not our smartest decision by any means and not something I suggest for anyone. That much time in a car is just totally unpleasant. I did get to listen to a lot of audio books though, which was nice. I also had tons of long, rambling conversations with my family, which I totally loved. But, this sandwich was the perfect breakfast for morning commutes. I would wrap it up in foil and I would eat it while I was on the road. Even though we are now both 5 miles from our jobs, we still wrap these up and eat them on our drive. Just beware, avocado sometimes falls out the sides and makes a mess! You wouldn’t think avocado would instantly stain your pants … but it does.
If you aren’t an avocado fan, this sandwich is delicious with cream cheese also. I actually used guacamole for a couple days last week. I didn’t have any avocados, but I had guac leftover from black bean burgers. Guac makes everything better, let’s just be honest. People are sometimes surprised that we make breakfast sandwiches every single morning during the work week. But, honestly, they probably only take 10-15 minutes to prep. We make them while we wait for our coffee to brew, feed the dogs, and pack our lunches for the day. Then, we throw them in our toaster oven until we are ready to leave. A few minutes before leaving, we turn the toaster oven on to let them warm back up, then off we go!
- 1 english muffin
- 1 egg
- coconut oil (for cooking egg)
- hot sauce
- Slice english muffin in half and toast.
- In a frying pan, heat up half a tablespoon, or so, of coconut oil over medium heat. Once hot, crack your egg and fry to your liking (I don't like runny yokes, so I break mine)
- Spread avocado on the bottom half of your english muffin, put a few squirts of hot sauce on, and put your egg on. Top with your english muffin and wrap up in tinfoil.
- Take with you on the go or enjoy at home!
