Guess what?! One of my Pumpkin Pie Pancakes pictures got accepted at Food Gawker! I’m so excited – I love taking pictures of my food, and to be able to share with the world via a big site like FG is really, really cool. Just wanted to share
So second day Shred soreness has kicked in BIG time! My inner, right thigh is SO sore (hello, left thigh? Did you not work as hard? Shame.) I still wanted to get some exercise in since it was raining during my morning Mom walk time today, so I hit up the treadmill after work for a 40 minute walk at a 4% incline. Eh, I was kind of irritated that the walk wasn’t a run – but I didn’t want to further aggravate my thigh. We’ll call it good enough.
So I’ve been craving breakfast foods for dinner lately, and the craving emerged with a fierceness again tonight. I threw up my hands, obliged and made a Homemade McGriddle Sandwich!
I started by toasting up a 1st National Wheat & Honey Bagel.
Then I whipped up 2 egg whites + 1 whole egg + S&P + hot sauce.
Tip: hot sauce in eggs is KEY – a tip that I’ve recently picked up from Ben. (Marriage – you learn something new everyday!) The hot sauce doesn’t make your eggs hot, it just gives them an amazing flavor. Give it a try!
I zapped a couple pieces of center-cut bacon in the microwave, nabbed a slice of American cheese and assembled!
So WHAT, you may be asking, makes this sandwich a McGriddle?! A secret layer of sweet syrup on the bottom half of the bagel!
Ummm…I’ll never be eating another breakfast sandwich without my secret layer – it was pure.deliciousness. It mingled with the already lightly sweetened wheat & honey bagel, salty bacon, melty cheese and ultra flavorful eggs, to make the Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich!!
I also sliced up a Braeburn apple for some freshness:
My stomach is sat-is-fied! Off to watch The Office…I hear wedding bells!!!
When’s the last time you ate fast food?
