Breakfast Sandwiches: 4 Ways to Not Get Bored with Turkey Bacon and Sausage
I’ll admit it. Sometimes I get stuck in a breakfast rut. For the longest I served up grits with turkey bacon and sausage for a school breakfast, oatmeal making an appearance on the menu here and there. I make grits mostly because it’s filling, but partly because in about 2-3 minutes I can throw in a few tablespoons of grits, fill the pot with a pool of water, add some salt and a pat of butter and go on about my mama morning business. When the kids began protesting grits for breakfast at first I dug my feet in and refused to change a thing. Who were they to ‘demand’ something else? People who offer no contribution to the grocery bill? Their pleas may not have worked, but their refusal to eat breakfast did. So I am testing out breakfast ideas that work for a fast-paced school morning and are at the same time, wanted. My/our new love: breakfast sandwiches. Breakfast sandwiches allow me to flip turkey bacon, sausage and eggs four different ways. I am not completely giving up on grits, they will just take a two or three day backseat during the week if need be. The kiddos can groan all they want, but grits will remain in the breakfast rotation. Servings: 1 teen girl, 1 growing seven year old boy and 1 6 year old girl.
