My first post of the year and it involves eggs? lol Can you believe it? If your a regular reader here you know that eggs are not a huge part of my meal experience…..unless its baked in a cake, casserole, etc – where I can’t literally “see” the egg. I can eat eggs, but not very often and it always has to be cooked thoroughly (no slime and no runny yolk) or it just turns my tummy. Hence, I can’t handle making my own Caesar salad dressing and Carbonara is very hard for me too.
I’m off work today. We have today as our New Year holiday, so after sleeping the day away yesterday because I stayed up until 4 am on New Years, I am actually wide awake and bushy tailed, no I wasn’t hungover, just tired oh, and HUNGRY. I wanted something savory but I didn’t really want my normal bagel, veggie sausage and Weight Watcher’s Jalapeno Cheese triangle spread sandwich. I wanted more substance and savoriness. Omlettes just don’t do it for me. You know, the possibility of that uncooked egg factor hits me too hard with an omlette. So, I decided to deconstruct everything – what I would put in and omlette, what I would put in a sandwich, and make myself a scramble that had a lot more of “everything else” than it had egg – and guess what? It was yummy! Good enough to kill my desire for something other than cereal or pancakes and I got to have my yummy Morningstar Vegetarian Sausage Patty along with the Jalapeno Cheese! Try it, you’ll like it :o)
Vegetarian Sausage, Egg, & Cheese Sandwich – Deconstructed
1 egg, beaten lightly
2 tablespoons diced red pepper
1 tablespoon diced onion
1 Weight Watcher’s Jalapeno Pepper Wedge, diced
1 Morningstar Farms Vegetarian Sausage patty, thawed and diced
green onion & parsley flakes for garnish
1 mini wheat bagel, lightly toasted and buttered
Cook peppers, onions and vegetarian sausage in hot skillet 2-3 minutes until vegetables are tender and sausage is crisped. Remove from pan. Spray pan with more cooking spray if needed and add beaten egg and scramble until desired texture. Remove from heat and add veggie/sausage mixture along with diced jalepeno pepper cheese wedge. Toss together, salt & pepper to taste, and serve garnished with green onion and parsley flakes (I used dried parsley flakes that my mom dried herself – the color is super vibrant!). Add toasted bagel and enjoy!
