This Egg, Canadian Bacon & White Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich takes only minutes to make, is less than 300 calories, and has 21 grams of protein to jumpstart your day.
Now that school is starting back, I am obsessing over what to feed my kids that will fill their tummies with protein, be low in sugar, and give them fuel to last until lunch. Thanks to a few savvy convenience products, I’ve found one solution~this Egg, Canadian Bacon & White Cheddar Breakfast Sandwich.
Here’s the rundown of the products that make this breakfast sandwich the easiest thing ever to throw together on busy mornings. When no one has time to sit down, this sandwich is easy to grab, go, and eat on the run.
Canadian Bacon: Unlike fat-laced American bacon (which comes from pork belly), Canadian bacon comes from the lean pork loin and tastes very much like ham. Canadian bacon can be found in any grocery store, but I love the Jone’s Dairy Farm double cherrywood smoked from Costco. I use 2 slices per sandwich, which is 6 grams of protein and only 2 grams of fat.
White Cheddar: Cracker Barrel sliced extra sharp white cheddar is perfect for breakfast sandwiches. It melts beautifully and has a sharp, tangy flavor. Boar’s Head sliced sharp cheddar is also excellent.
Egg White Patties: Good Food Made Simple, found in most grocery stores, sells frozen egg white patties that are perfectly thin and round for sandwiches. Located in the freezer case, they make getting healthy eggs in seconds a possibility.
English muffins: I love Bay’s sourdough English muffins, but there are myriad other types of breads that could be used for this recipe (even gluten free options). A bagel would work beautifully also but would change the nutritional count somewhat.
There really is no recipe here…..just heating, stacking & eating these yummy power sandwiches. Here goes…….
