Breakfast Sandwich - Under 250 Cal.

Breakfast sandwiches are something that I fall back on quite a bit. I tend to feed the masses during football season. On game day when I am trying to get all the house guests out the door in the morning it can sometimes feel like herding sheep. Whether it is a teenage girl who is applying makeup, a toddler running around, or just someone who accidentally slept in, there always seems to be a straggler.  It can be challenging to get everyone up, fed, and ready.

When Dan comes home from the hotel game day morning I like it to "look" calm, under control, and organized. I like to have everyone ready so that when he says it is time to go people are skipping out the door, bag in hand. These breakfast sandwiches help me do that. No one wants to buy overpriced food at a football game only because they missed breakfast, so I make these.

This is a sandwich for every host, busy Mom, bachelor on the run, or anyone watching their weight. It is fast, easy, healthy, and a great garb-n-go type of breakfast. During season I use English Muffins, American cheese, eggs, and sausage patties or ham. When off season hits, Dan and I try to watch our weight so I make it a little healthier. I always stock up on English muffins when they are half price. If they are about to be out dated, I toss em in the freezer. Same with the sausage.
