Alright, here goes KJ with a layup again. Everyone else has posted these gorgeous meals that took time and energy and I post tostadas and breakfast sammies. Well, here’s the deal. I have one child who does not dig breakfast food except for nasty sugar cereals, which just doesn’t happen much in our house. There is one go-to meal that he will eat, and can even grab on the run if I need to drive him to school. It will even keep him full enough to last til his lunch time and involves zero sugar. So, here’s my simple, on-the-go Cooper J. breakfast:
Cooper’s Breakfast Sammies
1 whole grain english muffin
1 vegetarian sausage patty (or regular pork sausage if you prefer)
1 organic egg
pinch of shredded cheese (we prefer pepperjack for this, but any kind you like is perfect)
1 T. butter
1/2 T. olive oil
In a skillet, drizzle a tiny bit of olive oil and heat the veggie sausage patty over med-low heat. While that’s cooking, toast the english muffin in the toaster. When the english muffin is toasted to your liking, butter it lightly, sprinkle the shredded cheese on it, and place it all on a microwave safe plate, open-faced to melt the cheese (about 20 sec).
In the skillet, flip the breakfast sausage and on the other half of the skillet drizzle a slight bit more oil or a pat of butter and cook an egg to your desired doneness.
Assemble all parts on to the english muffin, add a Cutie orange and head out the door.
