Breakfast Sandwich

Breakfast Sandwich, The Farmers Wife Recipe

Today is a rainy day here in the southwest, which is something akin to a snow day for most of the nation. Things shut down, maybe not school unless it's flooding, but farms which is our biggest industry (and quite obviously my favorite!) and things just kind of slow down. For us being a homeschool family we take advantage of these rare and special days. My son gets the day off school because Daddy gets the day off work (well not really, he has paperwork but our 5 year old thinks that is fun too, I mean it's farm related so it must be awesome right?!?) And on days such as this I love making a special breakfast for my family.

Now don't take this to mean I ALWAYS make special breakfasts because it rains... Because I don't, I am in no way superwoman and there are times that a take out pizza suits me just fine! But then there are rainy days where all I want to do is bake, plus you add to it the holidays are just around the corner and it ups the baking desire. Well this isn't your normal baking recipe, and but my family loved it!

Now you can use whatever your favorite breakfast bread is, English muffins, bagels, sandwich thins, or even a tortilla and make it a burrito of sorts. But this is easy, and a great way to have breakfast on hand and ready for the whole week!

Eggs (no set amount, that is up to you!)
Canadian Bacon Slices (you can use ham, bacon or sausage as well, but this is our favorite)
Sliced Sharp Cheddar (again you can use your favorite, but sharp cheddar is AWESOME in this!)
English Muffins (or bread of choice, we used some honey wheat buns my Mom in law made!)

Spray the wells of a jumbo muffin tin with non stick spray. Crack one egg into each well, and break the yolk with a fork and add pepper. Bake at 350*F for about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Meanwhile slice open your bread and place them open on a baking sheet. Place one slice of cheese on the top piece of bread, and the canadian bacon on the bottom. Once the eggs are finished cooking, remove from the oven and switch it to the broiler, place your pan with the bread under the broiler for a few minutes to melt the cheese and heat the meat, once done (keep a close eye on these!!) remove from the oven, place the meat on top of the cheese, and add the egg to the bottom bun, assemble and eat!

I know this isn't your typical recipe with strict guidelines etc. But it's really based on how much you want to make. Once these are made you can wrap them in wax paper and place in the fridge or freezer for a quick meal later in the week. Just make sure you unwrap it before heating in the microwave or oven. We loved these with homemade hashbrowns and some fruit on the side, and of course you can't forget the coffee! ;-) We give this 4 stars!

 Happy Eating!
