Double Decker Cheesy Omlette SandwichPosted: March 31, 2011
We all have a handful of foods that we absolutely love, regardless of how unhealthy they may be. I don’t care how health-minded you are, there has to be at least one food that can sway you away from a plate of broccoli in less time than it takes to say “screw the calories.”
As for me, I certainly have more than one, yet while many healthy bloggers wouldn’t mention their affinity for the occasional grease-laden meal if they were staring down the barrel of a gun, I have time and time again professed my love for Burger King Croissanwiches. Fluffy, salty, certainly-not-free-range egg patties, gooey and melty processed cheese and a greasy, flat pastry to hold it together…I’ll take two, please!
Last night, after walking home in a torrential downpour, all I wanted was to curl up on the couch in a fleece blanket with a stupid movie and cup of coffee. I wanted a simple, comforting dinner, yet the idea of waiting for pasta or a casserole to bake disqualified anything more elaborate than a good, old-fashioned breakfast sandwich.
Not just any breakfast sandwich, though, my friends…
A Double Decker Cheesy Omlette Sandwich.
Two feather-light slices of whole eggs, two layers of stringy sharp cheddar and two buttery slices of crispy, chewy toast certainly cut some of the unnecessary fat and sodium from the Burger King version, but retained the original elements of the legendary Croissanwich.
I should mention that I’m a bit of a breakfast sandwich purist. I want egg, cheese and carb. No vegetables. No jam. No spreads, pestos, sauces or condiments. Breakfast sandwich time is not a time to be fancy – it’s a time to revel in the cholesterol-raising, this-is-why-I-gave-up-veganism goodness that lies before you.
Is a recipe truly necessary?
Didn’t think so.
