Egg Sandwich

2 slices of bread (your choice of type)
1 egg,
mayonnaise
1 – 2 tomato slices
1 – 2 pieces of bacon

Cook two slices of bacon (or use pre-cooked for faster meal) . Toast bread in toaster.  Cook egg in small amount of butter or cooking spray until yoke is cooked completely firm.  Spread mayonnaise on toast, top with egg, bacon, and tomato.  Enjoy!

The Leftover Frittata

Leftover cubed potatoes and my laying hens inspired this breakfast, lunch or even dinner meal.  The potatoes were part of dinner the other night where I cubed the potatoes, toss with some olive oil and topped with Mrs. Dash Seasoning.

For lunch, I turned on the broiler to high and moved the oven shelf to the highest position (electric oven).  I put a little butter in the saute pan, and threw in up a handful of the precooked cubed potatoes, threw in a tsp or two of onion and green pepper (from the freezer) and cooked until tender. Added two eggs, beaten and cooked for a minute or two over medium heat to set the bottom.  I took some Fiesta cheese and sprinkled a handful on top of the egg and put it under the broiler. Watch for the top to become golden and bubbly.   You can get creative with an omelet or frittata, by using your leftovers; meat, veggies, mushrooms, potatoes, herbs and cheese.

Simply Simple French Toast

French toast is simple to make,  CHEAP, quick, easy, healthy and delicious. What more could you want?

Take one med size egg and scramble in wide bowl. Tip one slice of bread (your choice) , both sides to cover, then let sit to soak up while you prepare the pan. Melt about 1 Tbs butter in a pan. Once sizzling, reduce heat to medium and carefully add slice of bread. Cook slowly, flipping as needed. Add syrup, cinnamon/sugar mix or jelly for a quick morning meal. An alternative to using syrups or sweeteners is to make it with raisin bread or banana bread. Yum!

Waffles

Waffles for two

2/3 c milk
1 small egg (if possible)
1 Tbs oil or shortening
Optional chopped pecans

Heat waffle maker.  Mix ingredients and when hot, pour 1/4 of the mixture into your waffle maker (as size permits). You can add chopped pecans before closing waffle maker for cooking.  Extra pecan or plain waffles can be frozen for another meal or dessert base and reheated in the toaster.
