Western Breakfast Sandwiches
Life is slowly returning to normal. Well, a little closer to it anyway. I have a friend who has offered to replace my laptop with an older desktop computer. Our thieves don't seem to want those. Maybe sometime this week I will be able to begin reformatting all my recipes. I will have to rephotograph most of my submissions too. Stupid me. I should have backed it all up when they tried to steal it the first time.
So thank you if you are still reading through my saga. I will reward you with a breakfast sandwich that we really liked. Since we finally got a Sprout's grocery, and I found psyllium husks, I had made a couple of batches with Maria's Toasted Sub Sandwich and Panini Bread. I made some bun sized rolls that worked great. I use the coconut flour version and they are awesome...and not purple with my Sprouts brand, either.
The filling is a take off of one of our all time favorites from the Diner e-Book. The Cowboy Comfort breakfast. There are some changes, but it is a great change from sausage and eggs. Try it, and make any changes that best suit you! I have been reading a novel about the Indian Territory, and that western theme made this breakfast extra tasty. I would love to share the story behind that story, but that is for another day.
Western Breakfast Sandwich
11/2 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced
1/2 yellow or green bell pepper, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, diced
1 1/2 tsp Wright's Liquid Smoke
8 oz cream cheese
6 eggs, beaten
6 low carb sandwich buns (http://mariahealth.blogspot.com/2012/07/toasted-sub-sandwich-and-panini.html)
In a large skillet, brown ground beef with onion and peppers. Drain off any fat. Stir in the liquid smoke. Set the burner on low under the skillet. Use a knife to cut pieces of cream cheese and add them to the skillet. Let the cream cheese melt for about 5 minutes, then stir into the meat mixture. Turn meat to medium. Stir in beaten eggs and stir until eggs are set. Salt and pepper to taste. Split and toast buns. Fill with meat mixture and serve.
You could also use sausage in this, or add mushrooms, chilies, whatever you like! As soon as I get a computer of my own again, I hope to be back blogging more often. If summer camps don't kill me, that is.
