Tweet So that time of the year is here. The start of the school year. The kids are excited. Summer seems to have ended even though September weather is usually quite promising. Still warm, sunny and cooler nights (at least on the Eastern seaboard) and fall doesn't truly start until the Autumnal Equinox which is September 22 at 11:09 pm. I have always enjoyed beach trips in September. More nature, bluer waters, fewer people and really nice weather . . . lower prices. I am starting to get lost in a fantasy and missing my point which is starting the day off with breakfast. It is important to "break fast" which simply refers to eating after "fasting" overnight since your last meal and for many would be roughly 12 hours. Many studies indicate that having breakfast helps control weight and effects metabolism. It is also believed that it increases the ability to concentrate. And I do believe that, but for me has to be with a cup of morning joe. In fact, coffee should come before breakfast especially if I am having anything to do with preparing it. Lord knows what the Mom-before-she's-had-a-cup-of-coffee would actually make.
This is fairly quick sandwich to make. Cook some bacon. Cooking the bacon in the microwave would be easier and quicker than frying in a pan or broiling in the oven. Your call. You could skip the bacon but bacon is good.
Note: Adding milk tends to give scrambled eggs a creamy texture and adding water will tend to make the scrambled egg "harder". I like them both ways but I have noticed people can be picky about their eggs. Also if you cook quicker on higher heat they tend to be harder verses on lower heat and stirring constantly equal very creamy scramble eggs. Harder is better for egg sandwiches.
I think I am going to come up with some more of these breakfast sandwiches. I have some great ideas that could be enjoyed on the run. I can't help it if no one was around on this day, in fact someone just peaked over my shoulder and gave me a hard time for not being included. Imagine that.
Jump start your day with breakfast and take advantage of a good day!
Note on eggs: I know there has been a scare on eggs and we should all be rightly concerned. I have made a conscious choice to choose organic, cage free eggs to try to avoid mass farm produced products. I believe when farmers are more concerned about the bottom line instead of the quality and integrity of their business, there are going to be problems. Most of my eggs come from the farmers at our farmer's market and I feel good and safe about that.
