The Ultimate Egg Sandwich is by far the healthier alternative to McDonald’s fast-food favorite, the bacon & egg mcmuffin. With a variety of veggies used to create this sandwich, you will feel energized and satisfied to start the day.
The ingredients used in this recipe include a variety of veggies. If you don’t have all the listed veggies at home, feel free to swap for those that you do have. Ultimately, there is no wrong variety of veggies to add to the egg mixture. If you have zucchini, carrots, swiss chard, asparagus, brussels sprouts, etc. to use up, throw them in!
Don’t be fooled by marketing. Read this article to learn the difference between caged, cage-free, free-range, and pasture-raised eggs. This will provide a better understanding on why I always recommend pasture-raised eggs.
Grass-fed bacon is also specified in this recipe. We purchase our bacon from a local, sustainable farmer. If you are interested in finding a grass-fed farmer near you, review this site.
Lastly, the avocado adds the perfect, creamy texture to any sandwich. Avocados are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, which are important fats and essential to get within the diet. They help reduce inflammation, promote brain health, and also help to increase your HDLs (the good cholesterol).
As you can see – there are many health benefits to consuming this delicious sandwich to start your day!
If you prefer to have the sandwich without bacon, you may scramble the egg mixture in a sauté pan.
However, if you do prefer to add the bacon, preheat the oven to 450°F. Place both the bacon and egg combination in the oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until done. Enjoy!
