The Ultimate Breakfast Buddy

November 25, 2010

Today is the one day of the year we set aside to recognize all of the things we are thankful for. What am I thankful for? Breakfast buddies. My favorite morning treat is a delicious breakfast sandwich. However, being a college student I have to settle for pre-prepared creations, but not this week! In preparation for my favorite meal of the year, I created my new favorite breakfast of the year. May I introduce to you the ultimate pre-stomach expander, the herb roasted tomato and avocado breakfast sandwich.

All you need is…

1 whole wheat english muffin

vermont cheddar cheese

1 avocado

1 tomato

a variety of herbs both fresh and dry

1 egg, however you want to prepare it. I would suggest medium or egg whites.

Take the tomato and slice it into 1/2 inch wedge slices. Place all of the wedges onto a flat baking sheet. Drizzle them with olive oil, salt, pepper and your favorite mix of herbs and spies. I chose fresh rosemary, thyme, and dry basil. Place the tomatoes in the oven and broil them for around 5 minutes. Make sure you watch them closely, broiling can lead to burning easily.

While the tomatoes roast, lightly toast your english muffin. When the muffin is done, sprinkle vermont cheddar on it and place it in the oven to broil with the tomatoes for their remaining 30 seconds.

Now that you have all of your warm ingredients done, cover your english muffin and the tomatoes so they don’t get cold.

Then cook your egg to however you prefer. I believe egg whites are best with this but medium is great as well.

Last but not least, cut one avocado into thin 1/4 inch slices. Now all you have left is to assemble your master piece. This is what mine looked like!

A la breakfust, A la buddies, A la mmmm, and of course,

A La Mode,
