1. Avocado Bacon Breakfast Sandwich

This tasty breakky sandwich contains 20g of protein and only 2g of sugar!

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 slices of bacon
  • 1 large egg
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 slice of American cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 slices of sourdough or whole wheat bread
  • 1/2 an avocado

What To Do:

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add bacon and cook until it’s brown and crispy, flipping once, about 3-4 minutes. Drain the excess bacon fat but keeping 1 tablespoon in the skillet. Rest your crispy bacon to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Add eggs to the bacon fat skillet. Let it cook until the egg white is set but yolk is still runny, about 1 – 2 minutes, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Place a slice of cheese over your egg during the last 30 seconds of cooking time; set aside.
  • With a butter knife, spread butter on each slice of bread. Place bread in the skillet (or to your panini press) to toast, flipping once in the skillet, cook until golden brown, about a minute each side.
  • To assemble the sandwich, place your slices of bread on a work surface. Spread with avocado, top with bacon, egg, cheese and top with the other slice of toasted bread.
  • Serve immediately and ENJOY!

2. Smoked Salmon Sunny Side Up Breakfast Sandwich

Guess what, just 1 serving of this breakfast sandwich contains 22g of protein! Salmon is not only a great source of protein, but also a great source of omega-3 fatty acids and many other nutrients.

What You’ll Need:

What To Do:

  • Gently crack egg into a bowl, then transfer on skillet once your pan is hot and cook for about 2 minutes. Make sure your egg yolk did not separate, for the perfect sunny side up egg. Just before you take it off the heat, add a sprinkle of salt and pepper and you’re all set. Let rest till your bread is ready.
  • Spread the butter on the slices of bread, and toast over medium heat in a non stick skillet. Toast to your preferred crisp and once ready transfer to plate.
