I have loads of easy breakfast ideas that I love, but I needed a really, really easy breakfast. And this easy breakfast sandwich fits the bill.
Easy Breakfast Sandwich: Sausage McMuffin
I just got to thinking this week that our son, as big as he’s getting is going to need more of a substantial breakfast in the morning. All summer he’s had the luxury of having a mid-morning snack here and there. Protein is in order, but I can’t make a breakfast casserole every morning or else… well, I’d probably end up eating all of it.
So, I thought, why can’t I make my own little easy breakfast sandwich for him then?
I set out to do just that and was pleasantly surprised at just how easy it would be to get this thrown together. I simply purchased some of the Jimmy Dean premade sausage patties, some english muffins and Kraft cheese slices. The Jimmy Dean sausage patties are a bit pricey at $5.99 for a bag of 26 patties, but that’s still not too bad figuring that this will make 13 sandwiches, so about 50¢ per sandwich for the meat. I followed the directions on the breakfast sausage for reheating (1 minute or so) and placed them next to eachother on a toasted english muffin to make the breakfast sandwich. Then, a slice of Kraft cheese, in the microwave for 20 seconds or so and I was off to the races – perfect!
So you have my easy breakfast sandwich, served with a side of fruit. A perfect breakfast for my perfect 2nd grader. 🙂
