I've been slacking on my meal prep so I decided to start getting back on track by making some breakfast reinforcements. I usually have toasted bread with butter for breakfast, paired with a good old cup of coffee. That usually gets me through the morning and keeps me "closer to home" - in Portugal bread and butter is practically the staple for any breakfast!
I've been using the Clever Foodies scrambles to help me on my egg based dishes. They're super practical to use and perfect for when you're needing some veggies even though you didn't have time to run to the farmers market!
This recipe is extremely simple and quick to make. All you need is to scramble your eggs with the veggie mix and get the rest of the ingredients on an assembly line - get everything stacked and you're done with 6-8 breakfast sandwiches. It's always possible to double or triple the recipe to adjust it to the amount of sandwiches you need to make! After that you can freeze them or eat them right away, like I did! I had one of these for lunch paired with a soup and I can attest that it was delicious and it will make up for some seriously tasty and quick breakfasts for next week.
1 - Make the scrambled eggs: melt the butter on a pan and then add the beaten eggs. When they're still runny but half way cooked add the ranchero scramble and mix it well with the eggs until everything is cooked through. Add the chopped cilantro at the end to give it a fresh taste.
2 - Let the eggs cool down on a plate so you can assemble the sandwiches without it running from the sides!
3 - Get your assembly line going - open the English muffins and lay them on a flat surface to build your sandwiches. Add a slice of cheese and ham to each muffin half and top it off with some scrambled eggs.
4 - Top it with the muffin top and press gently. Wrap each sandwich in freezer paper and place them on a thigh sealing bag with the date of making on them so you can keep track of your meal prep date.
I'll be getting my meal prep for the week going on around here! I'll be sharing some of my strategies to make week meals simple and stress free on a future post. It really pays off to have some time on Sunday to get everything organized and half way prepared so you can feel comfortable about feeding your family during the week without having a nervous breakdown!
Now, doesn't that look delicious?!
