I love taking 10-20 minutes in the morning to make a nice breakfast. It starts the day off strong and of course it delights and awakens my sleepy taste buds. I am a pancake fiend and have learned to make them on 15 minutes or less. If you search "pancakes" on this blog you will find dozens of recipes I've tried. During the week, I usually make something with oatmeal and fruits in it, for a slightly more healthy version. On the weekends, think dessert pancakes like tiramisu or cinnamon swirl pancakes!
On days when we are craving something a little more protein heavy, I make a mean breakfast sandwich. Now I've shared my go-to breakfast sandwich before, and I have streamlined the process of making it by toasting English muffins with cheese in the toaster oven and cooking the bacon and regs simultaneously in one pan. But even that takes 10 minutes to cook and assemble.
There's a way to make breakfast sandwiches in one minute. Yep, you heard me: one minute! Well, you have to make them ahead of time and freeze them but they're still delicious. Maybe even more delicious than my go-to.
The reason I like thes is the egg frittata is so flavorful. I added a couple cups of baby kale and cayenne to mine and used heavy cream instead of whole milk (one tablespoon for every 2-3 eggs). The frittata came out so fluffy and yummy I was eating the scraps like crazy.
I cooked the bacon in the oven at the same time as the eggs, and toasted the English muffins with Gouda. Once ready to assemble, I made my favorite sandwich sauce of mayo+cayenne (1 tsp of cayenne to 1 Tbsp of mayo) and spread this on the top piece of each muffin.
I learned that you didn't necessarily need to toast the cheese on the muffin. You just have to be smarter about making the sandwich so that the cheese doesn't fall out if it's shredded. Avoid this issue altogether by using slices of cheese instead.
These are the sandwiches before freezing.
This is the sandwich taken out of the freezer, loosely wrapped in a paper towel, and microwaved for a minute. Fastest breakfast ever!
