Scrambled Eggs and Cheese Breakfast Sandwich

Scrambled-egg-and-cheese-breakfast-sandwich

Sometimes a light breakfast isn’t enough when you’re really hungry in the morning.

Here’s a super delish sandwich roll filled with easy-to-make scrambled eggs and topped with cheese and tomatoes.

You know what my fave part of this sandwich is?

It’s the light taste of garlic that’s toasted with butter on the roll.

It’s crazy that a taste of garlic would be so good in the morning but it’s delicious with the eggs and cheese.

The fun part about this sandwich is that you can customize the toppings to include goodies that you may have inside an omelet such as chopped ham, sautéed onion and bell peppers, or sautéed mushrooms.

Or how about topping it with chili….that sounds so good.

Next, I have the cutest breakfast waffles I want to share with you.  These yummies were handcrafted by my friend Krista’s daughter, Taylor who is 7 years old.

Wow!  Taylor I love this!  It’s a work of art and too pretty to eat!  (no, I take that back…I would have no problem eating this right up!)

Here’s another one of Taylor’s creations….

….another beauty!  I think I would start eating this by munching on the nose first.

Thank you very much for sharing these adorable yummies with us Taylor!

I’m afraid my artwork isn’t as cute as Taylor’s is….
