Mini Breakfast Sandwich

I'll be working from home for the next week because of some construction at my office.  I'm calling it Pajama Week.  Instead of getting up and commuting into the office this morning, I got to have a leisurely breakfast instead!  I decided to make myself a breakfast sandwich inspired by Panera's Mediterranean Egg White sandwich.  Super quick, super easy, and really delicious!

You could make this on a full size bagel instead, but that's way too much food for me!

1 egg
Handful of spinach
Slice of tomato
1 TB olive oil
1 tsp. pesto (pre-make and store in the freezer)
2 slices mozzarella cheese
1 mini bagel

Put mini bagel into the toaster while you heat up a dollup of olive oil in a small skillet.  Add tomato and spinach and cook over medium heat until spinach turns dark green and tomato starts to soften and give off its juices.  Remove tomato and spinach from pan.  Crack egg into pan and fry or scramble, whatever you prefer.  Spread pesto over one side of bagel, layering spinach, tomato, egg, and cheese on top.  Pop creation into the toaster oven and toast on low until cheese melts.  Enjoy! 


  1. This is so cute (yes, I think your sandwich is cute, lol)! And that's awesome that you got to have a leisurely breakfast. I had a similar experience this morning--I decided to work out before breakfast since the weather looked like it may rain, and so I was able to eat after my workout and have green tea with it!! It was so nice.

  2. Fruits are great and I would never discourage my patients from eating fruit,
    but if your objective is to lose weight then they have to be eliminated, as
    they prevent Ketosis. Emphasis of this program is getting rid
    of unsafe carbohydrates out of one’s every day diet plan. When you are doing caloric cycling you
    will have burn days and feed days.
