I’m sitting at my kitchen table and I just ate a granola bar for breakfast. And my stomach is still growling. (Makes me feel bad for the kids who ate a Pop-Tart for breakfast and are sitting in school today. Just sayin’.) I usually make the kids pancakes or oatmeal in the mornings. Today, they ate up the last of the banana pancakes (YUM) and I was going to make an egg sandwich.
I’ve posted about scrambled eggs before (strangely enough) but I have not mentioned my new favorite way egg sandwich. Here’s what I do:
1. Melt some butter in a pan. (Yes, butter!)
2. Then I place a piece of prairie bread in the butter to coat it nicely.
3. Take out the bread and crack an egg in the pan. Sprinkle with pepper.
4. When the egg is fried, I scoop it up and put it on top of the bread. Then place it back in the pan to grill for about 30 seconds.
5. I take it out of the pan and fold it in half.
Couple this deliciousness with a glass of orange juice and you are in breakfast heaven!! Now, here’s the thing if you want this to be a dynamo. First: I just bought my first farm fresh eggs last week and HELLO DELICIOUS. The yolks are obviously bigger, the shells are different and it’s just straight up yummy.
The next thing is the Prairie Bread. I don’t know if this is the actual uniform name to this bread but it is DIVINE. I bought this loaf at Harry’s (Whole Foods) and I could literally eat it for every meal. In fact, I did eat it for breakfast AND dinner one night this week. It’s kind of dense…but also light. And full of seeds and…oh, I don’t know. If you have a Whole Foods near you rush right out and buy some Prairie Bread. You will never be the same.
Yesterday when I made my egg sandwich I saw some mold on my beloved prairie bread. I threw that piece away…and I’m still kicking myself for it. What’s a little mold?! So, today, this lonely granola bar Thursday, I am missing and loving my prairie bread.
What’s your favorite breakfast food?
