Breakfast on the go: Grilled Cheese Egg Sandwich

My mornings are rushing around getting myself ready...and before I know it I have no time to sit down and eat breakfast. Could I make time? Yes but that means I have to get up even earlier and I rather sleep in. 

Working full time has been a big adjustment since I haven't worked full time since I was really sick. Thankfully my job doesn't consist of a lot of running around and it's not retail. So I have time in the mornings to eat my breakfast at my desk, and not rush.  A lot of people stop at any fast food place and get those breakfast sandwiches. Well I can't do that, and quite frankly they aren't good for anyone at all. But that doesn't mean I don't want something similar. So I created my own breakfast sandwich to go. 

A grilled cheese egg sandwich. Lately I've been obsessed with cheese. I have found ways to incorporate it into almost every meal. This is such a simple sandwich that you can literally add whatever you want to it. Some days I'll add spinach, tomatoes, or avocado. It just all depends on how much time I have. 

Breakfast on the Go: Grilled Cheese Egg Sandwich 


2 Slices Gluten Free Bread(I prefer Udis) 
2 Slices GO Veggie Cheese Slices(Any flavor) 
1 Tbsp Earth Balance Buttery Spread
1 tsp Coconut Oil
1 Egg


Heat a skillet on low heat. Grease the pan with the coconut oil. 
Cook egg to your liking. I hate runny yolks so I cook mine until its fully cooked. 
Remove egg from skillet. Turn the heat up to medium/high. Coat the slices of bread with butter, just like you would for grilled cheese. Place on slice butter side down in the skillet, add your cheese and whatever else you want, then the egg. Place 2nd piece of bread on top. Butter side up. Flip sandwich over and cook the other side until golden brown as well. 

Remove from heat and let cool. I found that putting it in tin foil keeps the sandwich fresher longer and doesn't make it soggy.
