How many of you skip breakfast? Did you know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day? When you have a hearty and healthy breakfast, it’s set you up for a vibrant and energetic day. It reduces hunger, and you’ll be prone to make wiser food choices for your other meals throughout the day.
I personally have smoothies and fruit for breakfast, but a lot of my family prefer a more substantial meal. They also tend to get bored with the same old options and long for a tastier change. I recently had the chance to peruse through and try out a new cookbook, 150 Best Breakfast Sandwich Maker recipes.
How many of you have a sandwich maker that’s been sitting in your cupboard or pantry for ages? Raise your hands. This cookbook will inspire you to resuscitate this appliance and create heartwarming and yummy breakfast choices. I just want to mention that if you don’t have a sandwich maker, or if your child just happened to take it to University with them, you can still make these scrumptious sandwich’s regardless. Or, if you don’t want a sandwich, you can still use your sandwich maker to create some cozy breakfast dishes.
What I really like is that the recipes are made with standard ingredients, you don’t have to find a specialty shop. All the recipes are clear and concise and offer variations.
If you like the typical breakfast meal, then you’ll like the first chapter. They’ve used standard ingredients and created some uncharacteristic yet uber yummy sandwiches. How about making a sandwich with pancakes as your bread? Cool idea. The Pancake and Sausage Sandwich will have you asking for seconds. Or if you’re a vegetarian, check out the Vegetarian section, you might like the Hummus and Veggies on Pita.
The Gourmet Meals for One or Two offers a little more sophistication. My family really enjoyed the Sausage and Maple Bread Pudding Sandwich. You make the Maple Bread Pudding yourself using old or stale bread. It’s a fabulous way to repurpose food you may have otherwise thrown out. Or maybe you’re like me and will head right to the Desserts and Snack section of the book.
Peanut butter and bananas are a true favorite in my home, but the Peanut Butter, Banana, and Granola Sandwich, really ups the flavor and uniqueness. I’ve made this one several times, each time with a different bread. The above image shows this sandwich made with pumpernickel bread, my family doesn’t really dig whole wheat. It’s so tasty and a great way to use up really ripe bananas. You can also use dried fruit, nuts, and seeds instead of granola. Let your imagination run wild. A few variations of this recipe are in the Kid-Friendly Options section. How about PB & bananas with chocolate chips? Oh so yummy!!
So whatever you’re hankering or craving for in the morning, this cookbook with encourages you to step out of your comfort zone and create fun breakfast meals for your family. They will love you for it! It’s a great book to have in any culinary collection and would also make a fabulous gift!
