As a parent I am always looking for healthy alternative choices for my boys to eat. Especially when it comes to fast food choices. Let’s face it, there isn’t a lot of wholesome and healthy choices to choose from in a world overrun with The Golden Arches and The King. So, what to do? My boys often hear me say, “I can make something better at home,” and lately I think they’re starting to believe their old man.

Make your own homemade breakfast sandwich! Not only will you SAVE money, but it's healthier and BETTER! Say YES To Homemade Breakfast Sandwiches

This past Saturday, our youngest boy asked me for a breakfast sandwich and I knew running to a fast food joint wasn’t going to be a viable option. So I put on my apron and with great alacrity and equal parts determination I set out to please his very discerning 9-year old palate. It must have been pretty good because after he polished off the first breakfast sandwich he asked for a second one. And he ate that one too without missing a beat. With the second one he asked for apple butter instead of jelly, and I threw in some leftover chopped ham browned in the skillet.

The kids will love this easy kid-friendly breakfast sandwich

What I came up with was pretty simple because everything I used was already in the house. All I had to do was pull it all together. Here’s what I used.

The Easy Kid Breakfast Sandwich

Ingredients:

  • Whole Wheat Bread (2 slices)
  • 2 Eggland’s Best Eggs
  • Kraft Singles Cheese (1 slice)
  • Earthbound Kale Italia (1/2 cup chopped)
  • Small Onion (1/2 onion chopped)
  • Land of Lakes Sweet Cream Butter (2 pats melted)
  • Smucker’s Natural Concord Grape Fruit Spread (1 tablespoon)
  • Bertolli’s Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Fresh Cracked Black Pepper (to taste)
  • Kosher Salt (to taste)

Chopped T-Bone Breakfast Sandwich

Instructions:

Chop 1/2 cup of kale mixture and 1/2 of a small onion, combine then set aside. Toast whole wheat bread and butter liberally and set aside. In a small skillet fry two eggs sunny side up and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble:

Spread Concord Grape Spread on a single slice of toast. Place fried egg on the remaining slice of buttered toast. Add 1 slice of Kraft Singles Cheese then top with chopped kale and onion mixture. Stack both slices together and serve.

For my breakfast sandwich I used the chopped meat from a T-Bone steak with sautéed green bell pepper, onions and 2 cloves of chopped garlic. I replaced the Kraft Singles Cheese with Kraft Shredded Mozzarella. I also added some Sriracha for a bit of spicy heat. Also, instead of the sweetness of Jelly or Apple Butter I spread a savory dollop of pesto on my toast. So good!

        Yes. One of the reasons I love making these breakfast sandwiches at home is we get to put wholesome and nutritious ingredients on them that are not going to be an option at a fast food restaurant.

      These look gourmet! I’d spend time making these on the weekend for the family. I bet I could prep early enough to just put together and heat.
