Happy Sunday Everyone!
I had a delicious and innovative breakfast with my boyfriend this morning and thought that I would share it with you all. Like most of us, Hunter did not exactly grow up with the most healthy diet. In fact, his favorite childhood foods were corndogs and Mcgriddles from that famously nutritious fast food joint, Mcdonalds. He mentioned to me the other day that he saw an ad for one on T.V. which had got him craving one. Before he had time to consider going to get one I began thinking up how I could make a revised version of it. What the Mcgriddle APPEARS to be is a breakfast sandwich with sausage, cheese, and egg between two maple pancakes. Now God only know what is ACTUALLY in the make-up of a Mcgriddle but these are the ingredients that I incorporated into this yummy breakfast sandwich. It turned out great and the best thing about it is it betters your health and fuels your body rather than demolishing your health and taking from your body.
Recipe Serves: 1
2 slices of cinnamon raisin Ezekiel bread, defrosted
1 whole egg
1 egg white
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon of pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons of almond milk
2 links of turkey sausage ( can use turkey bacon if your not a fan of sausage)
1 tablespoon of goat cheese or cheese of your liking (optional)
2 teaspoons of Ghee or butter, for frying
Cook your turkey sausage according to the directions on the package and place aside until assembly of sandwich.
In a medium sized bowl whisk together your egg white, cinnamon, vanilla extract, maple syrup and almond milk. Take your two slices of bread and soak both sides of each piece in your egg white mixture.
Heat your ghee in the pan over medium heat. Place the your soaked bread in the pan and cook until browned on both sides, about 2 min on each side. Remove from the pan. Lightly whisk your egg in a small bowl and cook in the pan. You could either scramble the egg or cook it as you would an omelet. Remove from the pan, keeping the heat on.
Place your egg on one of your french toast pieces, topping off the turkey sausage then with your cheese. Put the other piece of french toast on top. Heat the breakfast sandwich in the pan for another minute or two. Transfer to a plate, drizzle with an additional 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup if you’d like, and enjoy : )
