My girls are pretty self sufficient in the morning when it comes to making their own breakfast but usually it is just a bowl of cereal with some fruit, toast or some oatmeal. This works out great for me because I work every morning and when it’s busy I just don’t always want to stop to make them something to eat!
On special days or days when I know they have worked their little bodies pretty hard the night before (BMX or Ice Skating) I will get up early and make them their favorite breakfast…
It’s really nice and simple and they truly love it…
Breakfast Sandwich (makes 2)
4 slices of bacon, cut in half so they fit on the Sandwich Thin
2 slices of American cheese
2 Arnold’s Select Multigrain Sandwich Thins
Place the bacon slices in your cast iron skillet (works best but you can use any skillet), cook until nice and crispy.
Toast your sandwich thins once the bacon has cooked.
Cook your eggs in the same skillet with the hot bacon grease. Salt and pepper the egg and gently break the yolk. Turn the egg to make it over easy and have the yolk mostly hard. Top with the slice of cheese and allow to melt slightly.
Top one half of one of the toasted Sandwich Thins with 4 slices of the bacon (cut in half so they fit right?), then top with the cooked egg and melted cheese and the other Sandwich thin half.
Repeat for second one.
**They really like this with a cut up banana and some OJ.
***We have been known to have this for dinner as well…We love “Breakfast for Dinner Nights”!
