About Me

My photo

I am a very lucky woman with a husband and son who are smart, witty and entertaining. Our son, B, attended public school for two years, and then we embarked on a new adventure in the Fall of 2010 - homeschooling. We don't have all the answers, but we know B and this has been the best thing for him. I blog to preserve our stories and our memories, share recipes, vent and ramble on about our crazy, yet blessed, life. Would you care to follow along?

My Breakfast Sandwich

I prefer ham in my breakfast sammies.  I love bacon, but prefer to eat it in strips on the side.  I like sausage, but only in links; I don't like patties (weird, I know).  I really have to be in the mood for an egg to eat one, and I'm rarely in the mood.  Usually, the thought of eggs makes me sick to my stomach, but when I happen to be sick to my stomach (not from thinking about eggs) I crave eggs (weird, again).  I was in the mood yesterday, so I made this beauty.

Chiffonade (cut into ribbon-like strips) 2 slices of Wegmans Brown Sugar Ham and sauté in a little butter until desired color/crispiness.

Beat 1 egg, a little salt, a little pepper, a splash of water.

Now, if you scramble the eggs, they'll fall out of the sammy with every bite.  So, just pour them in a heated pan with a little melted butter and let it cook flat. It's a thin layer, so it won't take long.

When almost cooked through, I tried to fold the egg in half, but it did not make it all the way over. I think that worked out better! SoI folded over the other side just to meet the first...

...then folded it in half and took it off the heat.

My English muffin was toasting while the egg cooked. I just love the reflection of me and my kitchen in the glass; makes me feel all artsy.  :o)

I put a slice of American cheese on each muffin half b/c that is what the hubs does.  He has a cheese obsession.  I realized that was too much cheese for me and next time I'll just use one slice.  Then the egg and the ham.

YUM-O!  I wasn't able to finish the whole thing.
So, tell me what your favorite breakfast sandwich meat is - bacon, sausage, ham, Canadian bacon, something else?


  1. We're meat lovers in this house. We'll take all those toppings for breakfast...or on a pizza. ;-) Bottom line -we dig pork.

  2. those are well placed muffins in your artsy, self-reflection photo lool!

    the sandwich looks great though, you just might have to make brunch for me when you come over ;)

  3. oh, forgot to add my favorite breakfast meat! it's chicken actually, thanks to Chick Fil A's breakfast menu I have been converted to just how incredibly tasty chicken can be on a breakfast sandwich!

    1. Krista - B's godfather makes a breakfast dish he calls "Mother & Child". It's a chicken breast and eggs. ;o)
