This has got to be the easiest breakfast in the world. Breakfast sandwiches are so tasty and so easy and, despite the greasy appearance, it's actually not all bad for you. I remember hearing somewhere on the radio that from the scary calorie, fat, carb-laden menu of McDonalds, the egg McMuffin isn't such a bad choice: lots of protein, calcium and fibre while relatively lower in calories (310 calories compared to the 650 calorie burgers..) Anyways. I write a blog on baked goods, so it is a bit funny that I'm measuring calories, no? :P
My point, however, is the fact that while a quick drive-thru at McDonald's seems as easiest as it gets, making it at home is just as painless. If you know how to toast bread and fry an egg, that's all the skills ya need. The result is a warm, tasty and fresh meal for breakfast. It's quite filling too! As for the side, instead of sodium crazy hashbrowns served at the fastfood chain, I like to compliment it with some fruit and some orange juice. Get some vitamins in there, ya know?
Bacon Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich
for one sandwich
1 whole wheat english muffin (130 calories)
2 slices Canadian back bacon (25 calories)
1 slice processed cheese (60 calories)

Was that not the easiest thing ever? I don't think it even needs a recipe.
