Open-Faced Breakfast Sandwich

In lieu of a rainy Saturday here in SF, and after working late last night (I had to post a new campaign for work online, at midnight), I decided I need to have a lazy Saturday morning. And with a lazy Saturday always comes a yummy breakfast that takes a little longer than the 5 minutes I can spare for a green smoothie or a grab a banana while dashing out the door breakfast on weekdays.

So I made my favorite open-faced breakfast sandwich, which can change a bit depending on what I have on hand in my fridge or pantry. Now I'm sure you've seen similar sandies plastered allover Pinterest and the like, but I still thought I'd share my version.

It always goes something like this. . .

Toast up 1 or 2 slices of bread, I love Food for Life, Ezekial Sprouted Grain bread, and spread a little bit of goat cheese on top of that:

After that, and if you can find good tomatoes this time of the year, top with tomato slices and season with a little freshly ground salt and black pepper. I'm a big proponent of only using the best, local if possible ingredients, so if you can't find good tomatoes right now, skip this!. Our friends in town this week happened to buy some, and they were quite good (again, CA produce). This step can be omitted, or you can use sun dried tomatoes. . . Dreaming of my dad's garden fresh tomatoes about now. .

Then add some sliced avocado, season with a little freshly ground salt and pepper. If you haven't learned this trick to get perfect slices of avo, here it is: cut your avocado in half, remote pit. Slice half the avocado while it's still in the skin and then scoop out with a spoon. . Voila! you'll never go back to trying to spoon it out and smashing it while you try and slice.

After that, top with an over easy egg, or sometimes, if I have a hard boiled egg, I'll slice that and put it on top.

Add a little Sriracha if it tickles your fancy, it certainly tickles mine!

Et voilĂ ! A yummy and healthy little breakfast sandwich!

Back to my usual weekday breakfast of a green smoothie, I recently found a free 7 day trial of these Aloha dried green juice packets with amazing super food ingredients, that you can either just add water for a green juice, or add to your smoothie, among other ideas. Check them out here! I tried one with just a banana, some almond butter, almond milk and some ice, and it tasted great and I felt energized!

You can also find my 'Go To Green Smoothie' recipe to pack an extra nutritional punch.

Coming soon. . .a post my CSA, organic, local bi-weekly produce delivery, I am SO excited about this:

Tata for now!
