A Golden Sunshine Sandwich

We’ve all heard the saying “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.” Most of us grew up believing that skipping breakfast was a very bad thing. And that’s probably right, in a way. After all, the word Breakfast means Break Fast.

Think about it. Unless you are getting up every few hours to have a snack or make a sandwich at midnight, breakfast is breaking the fast most of us have taken as we sleep. Oh sure, there are those who work the graveyard shift and theirs is a completely different schedule. One we are all grateful for in all sorts of ways.

Breakfast is important in that we are hungry when we wake up. The longer we go hungry, the more likely we are to grab something – anything – and wolf it down. That’s not healthy. The idea of breakfast being important really took hold in the 1960s when Adelle Davis, an American nutritionist, said we should “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, and dinner like a pauper.” What’s really going on there is that we should have our largest calorie intake in the morning, with a full day of activity ahead, rather than at bedtime. It’s interesting to note that people who skip breakfast and those that don’t generally end up with the same daily calorie intake. Breakfast is important because we say it is. People who eat breakfast tend to be people who pay attention to their overall nutrient intake and regularity participate in physical activates, like to jog or belong to a gym. So it would be safe to say it’s not breakfast necessarily, but personality type.

Personally, I love breakfast. I love the foods served at breakfast. I love warm Croissants, fluffy pancakes and Belgium Waffles topped with fresh whipped cream. Sausage, bacon, eggs fried in grease. Hum, not exactly a healthy start to any day. But the studies that show overall calorie intake remains the same are right. On days when I indulge in something naughty for breakfast, I’ll have a salad for lunch and maybe grilled fish for supper. So it’s really a matter of control when indulging in things we enjoy. I mean, if we are being honest, most of us would love a big slice of cake every day. That said, most of us don’t.

This breakfast sandwich is one of my favorites. It’s golden and beautiful and a nice blend of good things with bad things. A poached egg – good. Keto Bread Thins also good. Sausage patties, not so good. Unless we are talking flavor. Country sausage is packed with flavor – it comes with the fat!

Enough lecturing. Life was meant to be enjoyed. And this is one delicious, enjoyable breakfast sandwich. So I say go for it, then go for a walk!

Poached Egg Breakfast Sausage Sandwich
4 frozen Country Style Sausage Patties
4 Eggs, poached
Cooking Spray
Water as needed
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
4 Keto Thin Buns
1 tablespoons Butter

Warm a skillet over medium heat, spray lightly with cooking spray.

Fill the bottom of egg poacher with water. Spray wells of poacher with cooking spray, set into place over the steaming water.

Break eggs, 1 at a time, into a small ramekin. Season with salt and pepper. Beat egg, pour into well. Repeat with remaining eggs. Cover, steam for 6 minutes over medium heat.

Place sausage patties in a warmed skillet. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, turn and cook another 5 minutes or until warmed through.

Check eggs. If fully set but a little runny, use a spoon to turn eggs over in the cups. Continue to cook another 2 minutes or until cooked through.

Place Keto Buns in a toaster, toast 1 minute to warm. Lightly butter each with about 1/4 tablespoon butter per 2 buns.

Place bottom buttered buns on individual plates. Top each with a sausage patty and egg. Top with remaining top bun. Serve and enjoy.
