The Great American Breakfast Sandwich

I have a thing for breakfast. If I had countless hours in the day, what I wouldn't give for a leisurely meal on a veranda or at a French cafe. Despite being in a rush to beat the clock most mornings, I do make an effort to plop down at my desk and schedule a few minutes to enjoy my breakfast. Lately, my favorites have been homemade bread with a smear of almond butter and honey or oatmeal w/ cranberries and walnuts. Yum. Weekends allow for more extravagent concoctions like the sandwich above - a toasted panini with 2 fried eggs, turkey bacon, tomato and avocado. A sandwich like that makes me want to experiment a bit more - maybe I'll bake a batch of cheddar biscuits or some ginger pear muffins.

One of my favorite places for inspiration is the blog Sadly, the blogger just pulled the plug on her project but it's still chock full of inspiring recipes and lovely photos.

Now that the weekend is upon us, maybe I will break out the muffin tins.....

I don't really like the idea of breakfast sandwiches or breakfast burritos. It just sounds weird to me. This looks amazing though. I think you have changed my mind.

Thank you! I was hoping it looked tantalizing.
