Egg Sandwich

Last night, 4ft (my nine-year-old) had his Blue and Gold celebration for Cub Scouts. So after serving up a ton of food, our den was in charge of putting it on, and partying the night away scout style, I was too tired this morning and didn't want to hassle with putting together waffles. So I raided the fridge and threw together this one skillet, no fuss, egg sandwich breakfast.

Finally! Bread! I was able to eat bread without it hurting. Okay so it's the sandwich thins and when you toast them they really dry out (which is probably why I could eat it) but to be able to pick up a sandwich and eat it was a marvelous thing. Of course, I couldn't finish the sandwich. I ended up eating about 3/4 of it and then finishing just the egg and bacon out of the center (for the protein). It was seriously delicious and I was totally bummed I had to stop eating.

Egg Sandwich

1 slice center cut bacon
1/2 tsp minced garlic
1/2 cup raw spinach
cooking spray
1 extra large egg
salt and pepper
1 100% Whole Grain Sandwich Thin (toasted)
1/4 oz. of sharp cheddar cheese

1.) In a medium skillet, fry a slice of bacon to taste. Remove bacon from pan onto a paper towel. Set aside.
2.) Add garlic to hot pan w/ bacon grease and saute for 30 seconds. 
3.) Add spinach with a little salt and pepper to taste and saute until wilted. About a minute. Remove from pan and place on a toasted sandwich thin. 
4.) Put the bacon on top of the spinach and then add the sliced cheese.
5.) Add a little nonstick spray to the pan and fry up an egg with salt and pepper to taste (I like mine over medium -- the whites are done, the yolk is a little runny, and there is absolute NO egg snot! Egg snot is the worst. Blech!).
6.) Add the egg to the stack and voila, delicious sandwich.
