Summer is in full swing here in Phoenix. You know this when the temperature breaks 115°F… funny enough, a 101°F day is mild and yes, you can tell the difference. In the midst of these weeks of extreme heat we stay inside more often than not, meaning that I can indulge in my official state of “nesting”.

E is for Egg Breakfast Sandwich (Healthy Style)

This is a recipe I had never tried before but had seen many times. I finally tried it and LOVE it! Another one to add to my regular recipes I like to make for myself. You can make it for multiple people of course, but I made it for lunch for just me! It’s a bit hard for my little girls to eat a sandwich like this quite yet (they are 1 and 2 years old), so mama got to enjoy this one on her own! They got a yummy lunch surprise too, but I’ll show you that in a bit… First here’s the sandwich:

Shopping List: English Muffins (whole wheat), Eggs, 1 tomato, Canadian Bacon, fresh parsley, fresh chives, and 1 slice of cheese (optional… my addition to the recipe)

Staples you’ll need: Cooking spray and Butter (optional… another addition of mine)

E is for Easy Quiche

Easy, DELICIOUS quiche that is… 🙂

I thought about titling this post “E is for Egg Quiche”, but a quiche by definition is made with eggs, so I decided the “egg” part was obvious.

This recipe is my own. I only had one meat, one cheese and one type of herb on hand so that is what was added. I read through over 50 quiche recipes to see how other people made their quiche (ratios, ingredients, etc.) They ranged from fairly simple and a few ingredients to very involved and heavy with ingredients. Since I was going for a budget-friendly recipe, I needed something simple with just a few ingredients. This made TWO meals for my little family, but we are about the equivalent of 3 people (almost). You may easily be able to finish it off in one sitting! I would say it feeds four adults. Possibly more if it is served with a salad and/ or fruit on the side.

I love to get my stomach rumbling and my mouth watering to jump start menu planning, so here’s the shot of the final product:

So eggy…. so creamy… a little crunch from that crust on top… DELICIOUS

Is your mouth watering?? If not, it will be when you see how easy this is to make…
