It’s no secret we visit the beach weekly, and sometimes it is easier to pack a bagel breakfast sandwich and eat it there, rather than spending a lot of time cooking, eating and cleaning breakfast in the morning. We would rather hurry and get to the beach to enjoy our breakfast there. So, I created a yummy little breakfast sandwich that we can wrap up and take in our picnic basket. These are super simple too, with things you will have on hand. Nothing too fancy. Just yummy and filling for long days of sand castles and swimming.
David loves this sandwich, and my husband ate two this morning. If he approves, you know they are good.
Here is what you need to make TWO of the sandwiches. Make extra 🙂
2 bagels pre-sliced (keep it easy)
2 TBSP butter
Two slices of Mozzarella cheese (any cheese works really though)
2 round patties of your favorite sausage (I used two round jimmy dean ones I can pop in the microwave)
2 slices of tomato
Start by frying your eggs. Drop them in the pan on a low/medium heat and let them slowly cook. These are fried eggs, but we like the center semi-solid. Not totally runny because it is messy on the beach. Cook it how you like it, but just remember runny eggs and sand don’t go well!
While your eggs are cooking, toast your bagels in the oven or a toaster oven to melt the cheese on one side. I toasted for about 5 minutes at 400 F. Then, pop your sausage in the microwave.
While things are cooking, slice up your tomato. I sprinkle my tomatoes with a little sea salt to bring out the flavor.
When the bagels are done. lay them out and butter the other side (non-cheese side). Place the sausage patty, followed by one fried egg (well done) on top of the butter side. Sprinkle some salt and pepper on the egg. This helps keep it on the sandwich. Add the tomato to the egg, then top with the melted cheese side. Wrap it up, and put it in your picnic basket!
This is seriously one of our favorite sandwiches! Having them ready to go the night before makes things even easier, so I highly recommend prepping ahead of time!
I have a very specialized program for postpartum mamas looking to heal, nourish and regain their strength. I really struggled healing after my first child, and even went through pelvic floor physical therapy for weeks to manage scar tissue that developed from tearing. I have experience studying nutrition, physical therapy and I taught Pilates, so I’ve put together a program I wish I would’ve followed from the beginning.
A program that first heals your body through specialized movements and nourishing foods. Foods are so essential to your body finding the nutrients it needs to put itself back together again. Your postpartum body needs special care in the first 4-6 weeks where you focus on regaining strength and properly fueling your body for breastfeeding.
Here is what one mama emailed me on the program:
“I absolutely love the program! Just got finished with workout 4 and I’m dying I can only do these 2x thru and my second round is pretty funny to see I’m sure! I will work up to 3x:-) By the way, your little boy angel in the videos is too precious and makes me smile! My boys have been doing these with me as well🏼!
This program then moves you into gaining physical fitness back. I will never forget the first time I tried to go for a run around 12 weeks postpartum after my first baby. I didn’t do any strength work, so I was literally jelly. I had lost all my extra fat and my previous muscle. So depressing. I was barely able to start gaining it back before I got pregnant and sick again with my second. I’ve learned so much on maintaining muscle postpartum through a unique diet and Pilates routines. I walk you through all of this too!
Lastly, I take you into a workout program to combine with a meal plan to help you lose the baby weight, not your milk!! !
I created this program to be affordable and realistic for new mams!
