Breakfast Sandwiches

My Mom often made us breakfast sandwiches in high school. A homemade version of McDonald's. This is such a great breakfast on the go. And much heartier than cold cereal.

*There are plenty of variations, surely many I haven't done yet. Suit yourself.

Ingredients:
bacon (this is turkey bacon)...bacon bits also work
2 eggs (or one egg and an egg white as I do-a bit less cholesterol)
cheddar cheese (shredded or sliced, and really any type of cheese works)
mayo
ketchup
bread (if you want to splurge, buy Panera's tomato bread. TERRIFIC flavor-and more enjoyable when your mother buys it when she's visiting...as was my case.)


Step 1-Grill bacon. Most of the time I nuk it in the microwave but the George grill makes me feel like a professional chef-and its a lot cheaper than a panini maker. Georging it takes about 3-5 minutes.
Step 2-Add the bread to the grill. Or stick it in the toaster.
Step 3-While the bread is toasting and bacon's sizzling, scramble eggs (unless you want it to look like McD's and have the yolk in the center). If you're using bacon bits, add them now. PAM coat your mini bowl. Microwave for 70 seconds.
Step 4-Add cheese. Microwave 20 seconds.
Step 5-Spread your condiments on your toasted bread.
Step 6-Assemble, wrap in paper towel and send your hubby out the door. Or enjoy at home.

Take one last picture and turn off that darn flash.
