When Saturdays come around they are either filled with energy and excitement for what the weekend holds, or they come with the weight of the past week resting heavy on our shoulders. This was an extremely heavy week for me, and so I woke up relatively late and unsure of what the day would hold.
I decided to go downstairs and make some breakfast, however, I didn’t really know what I wanted. I eventually decided to make a Breakfast Sandwich for myself. This easy to make and healthy dish is filled with protein, veggies, and the necessary nutrients to fill your morning with energy.
- 2 small or medium size eggs
- 2 slices of bread
- 1/4 a cup of spinach
- 1/4 a cup of diced tomatoes
- 2 small slices of the cheese of your choice
- 2 slices of ham (it can also be turkey ham)
- 1/2 teaspoon of low-fat butter
- A pinch of rosemary
- Salt & Pepper to taste
In a small bowl whisk the two eggs with the rosemary. Add spinach and a little salt and pepper. After this, put a small sized non-stick pan in low-medium heat and place the tomatoes in. After a couple of minutes check that the tomatoes are significantly softer than before. Add a pinch of salt and add the egg mixture in. Lower the heat (set it to low) and cover your pan so that the omelet can cook thoroughly and evenly without having it burn.
Once the omelette is evidently done, set it aside and place a new pan in the stove. Put the heat to medium and add a little amount of butter to it. Once the butter has melted, place one of bread slices with the ham in, cover it, and let it brown slightly. Make sure that the ham is looking up to avoid having it stick to your pan! Once it is golden brown, plate it. Repeat this same process with the other slice of bread and add the cheese if you wish. Once both sides are done, add the omelette to the sandwich, finish plating and enjoy!
Feel free to add any other ingredients you wish, and always remember that if you have any comments or suggestions for what I can cook next please let me know!
